Out of the winter anabiosis, the townspeople crowd in the parks and occupy the verandas of restaurants. The Moscow authorities are already starting a new season of “My Street”. And all this happens under the roar of tanks, passing at night on Tverskaya Street, – this is how the capital looks like in the May holidays. Therefore, the desire to leave it is not a whim, but rather an instinct for self-preservation.
If you for some reason have not yet flown to one of the Mediterranean islands, then all is not lost. You can also relax in the suburbs, in one of the hotels that we picked up.
Hotel Rodniki is six cottages located in the forests of the Vladimir region, 80 kilometers from the Moscow Ring Road. If you are not ready to spend several hours on the road, then the hotel administration is ready to offer a transfer by helicopter. One night in “Rodniki” will cost you at least 34 thousand rubles. In addition to contemplating the untouched, but moderately adapted for the needs of a city dweller of nature, it is necessary to undergo a complex of bath procedures, as well as to test a local spa. You can start with “Complex care for men”, which includes face massage, peeling and masks. Also there is a pleasant bonus – a fitness room in which, if desired, you can burn calories collected in a local restaurant.
The hotel is located near Solnechnogorsk, on the shores of the Zhivaginsky pond. “Sunny” will suit fans in the measure of active rest and families: children will be animators so much that you will have time to miss them for a festive weekend. The hotel has tennis and squash courts, by the way, the trip can be an excellent occasion to learn how to play it. There is also a mini golf course, football and basketball courts. If you are ready to get up early, then you can go fishing. In the “Sunny” guests are available seven saunas and two swimming pools, in which you can relax after sporting feats. Prices start from 5300 rubles for a standard double room and end at 23 thousand rubles for a five-room suite per night.
The country residence of the international hotel chain Hilton is located on the Novorizhskoe highway 70 kilometers from Moscow. In a relatively small area, there are compact pools, a tanning area, tennis courts, a Russian bath and a spa. Dare to try the “Traditional ritual program for the purification of the Baltic princesses.” What is included in this procedure, and also whether it is possible to adapt it for princes, we do not know, but it sounds very intriguing.
Cottages, hotel and guest houses of the eco-hotel “Emerald Forest” are lost on the territory of 220 hectares 90 kilometers from Moscow on Novorizhskoe highway. This is a sufficient distance, so that Moscow cares do not finish up to you, as well as cellular communication (we strongly recommend switching off mobile phones immediately after settling). Tranquility surrounded by forest near Moscow will cost 31 thousand rubles per night in a cottage or 16 thousand rubles per night in the guest house “duplex luxury”.
Forests and a safari park are available for leisurely walks, which can alternate with fishing and rest on the shore of a small lake. Relax and quickly enter the rhythm of relaxation will help several massage options at the local spa, as well as anti-aging treatments and toning treatment for the body and face. In addition, the hotel offers the services of a professional foreman, in other words, a bathhouse attendant, who will help you feel all the delights of a Russian bath and even, they say, play the harp.
Hotel “Seneschal” is a large chalet a la ryus, in other words, a luxurious frame with stucco, painted ceilings and rooms for 20 thousand rubles per night. However, the “Seneschal” is almost the only place where all of the above looks appropriate, because the hotel implies a rest in the bar’s format. Stay involuntarily brings thoughts about the charms of serfdom. And so that they do not stay long, go to the bath, there they will surely be knocked out of their heads – birch twigs, of course. In the “Seneschal” they offer steam baths both on the bath shelf and in the hay. After the steam room, you can go to the spa and experience several types of massage and peeling, including the Old Slavonic with the use of sea salt.
