The Broadmoor continues to redefine itself with settings where guests can unwind and be pampered. While the old-world ambience—including the signature pink building with the Mediterranean-style towers—is still strong, the overall feel is pure luxury. The cottages hark back to the days when wealthy Easterners gathered in the Adirondacks to enjoy an unhurried lifestyle. If you're going to stay in the South Towers, where the rooms vary in size from snug to immense—request
one with a lake-view balcony. In summer, families enjoy paddleboats and gather around the large infinity pool, which appears to flow into Cheyenne Lake. The spa offers innovative treatments such as the Magic of the Silk Route Massage, which utilizes techniques from Thailand, India, and China. The tennis center and its instructors are excellent, and the golf courses are among Colorado's best.
