5 of the best places to go in February

The penthouse hot tub at L’Apogée, Courchevel

Whether it’s skiing amid the Alpine splendor of Courchevel, basking in the glorious sunshine of Zanzibar or discovering the wildlife in Rajasthan, PORTER rounds up the best travel spots for February

Lifestyle

L’Apogée, Courchevel

So dazzling is the lure of Courchevel that the highest and most exclusive of the four villages is still affectionately called by its old name, Courchevel 1850. On the immaculately groomed Verdons pistes, you’ll find L’Apogée, a discreetly luxurious family resort for those who love good, unpretentious food and impeccable service, with huge rooms furnished with handcrafted furniture and cozy tartan textiles. The best room of all is the penthouse, which has its own rooftop hot tub; it is one of Courchevel’s most jaw-droppingly beautiful (and most requested, so book early) suites. Despite all the sumptuous glamour of this resort, Courchevel’s real selling point is the fact that you also have access to the wider Trois Vallées region – the linked lifts make this the largest skiing area in the world. In Les Trois Vallées there are 600km of pistes to traverse, so you won’t need to ski the same run all week. Book through oetkercollection.com

Capella Ubud, Bali

In the spiritual epicenter of verdant Ubud, the latest zen retreat to open above the Wos River is an under-canvas experience created by the visionary designer Bill Bensley. Inside the resort, you’ll find a jungle boot camp, aerial yoga, mountain-biking and medicinal cures; outside, explore the fabled artistic commune of Ubud or take a paddy-field walk to local village with excellent guides. For the most immersive dining experience, ask for one of the specially organized Indonesian feasts in the rainforest, or eat in either of the hotel’s fantastic restaurants, Mads Lange and Api Jiwa. capellahotels.com

All of Capella Ubud’s 23 tented lodges have private salt water pools

Zuri Zanzibar

This is most exciting development on Unguja, Zanzibar’s main island. You can now absorb the sleepy charms of this eco resort draped across a gentle beachside slope in Kendwa village, with each of the 55 thatched villas offering spectacular views over the hotel’s stretch of private beach. Take sailing day trips along the coastline dotted with tiny fishing villages – it’s a beachcomber’s paradise where you can pick up conch and other rare shells. Dinner at the beachside Bahari Grill is a highlight: feasts of shrimp and kingfish freshly scooped out of the ocean and served on wooden platters, while slipper lobsters arrive at your table still sizzling from the barbecue. zurizanzibar.com

Brush Creek Ranch, Wyoming

Steeped in Wild West nostalgia, the epic winter wilderness of this authentic cowboy country is best enjoyed at the charming Brush Creek Ranch in the heart of the Platte River Valley, where log fires crackle in charming wooden cabins after days spent snowmobiling or cross-country skiing. Follow in the footsteps of legendary female sharpshooter Annie Oakley at the ranch, where you can tighten up your aim at its shooting range. For a more meditative experience, head to the ranch’s heated yoga yurt, where you can practice vinyasa classes and sun salutations as the snow falls outside. brushcreekranch.com

Sujan Jawai Leopard Camp, Rajasthan

Set in the Aravalli Hills, a comfortable three-hour drive from either Udaipur or Jodhpur, past dry riverbeds and acacia trees in the middle of Rajasthan countryside, is Jawai, where more than 60 leopards are resident in the rocky granite kopjes that rise above the bush close to camp. The latest creation of the luxury Suján camps group, Jawai aims to redefine the whole concept of an Indian safari, so that it is not just a sanctuary of glamorous refinement, but also a model for eco-tourism and big cat conservation. Jawai provides veterinary care for the livestock of the striking red-turbaned Rabari herdsmen who live here, and supports educational projects in the local villages. sujanluxury.com/jawai
