If hot and steamy is how you want to spend your vacation, make straight for New Hampshire. No matter what time of year you visit, the Granite State’s nicest hotels have relaxing waters and peaceful views out to the White Mountains from their bubbling hot tubs. Bring your cozzie and a good book, and soak away the strains of modern life at these fine New Hampshire hotels.

1. Omni Mount Washington Resort

What do presidents, poets, and celebrities have in common? None of them could resist a dip in the hot tub at Omni Mount Washington Resort. And who can blame them? Found in New Hampshire’s largest ski area, this hotel lays on endless outdoor activities and presents the perfect cure for your weary muscles – just get into the hot tub. If you’re more of an indoorsy type, munch your way through local meats and cheeses in the resort’s Rosebrook Bar, or schedule pampering time at the spa.

2. Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa

Come for the slopes, stay for the sauna at Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa. If you pre-purchase a membership to the Health and Wellness Center and the Tower Spa, you’ll be able to hit the hot tub the moment your al fresco antics are over: ice skating, cross-country skiing, golfing, or mountain biking. Dry off and play a game of billiards or make some s’mores by the campfire before settling down in the resort’s theater to get stuck into 500 or more movies.

3. Wentworth by the Sea, a Marriott Hotel and Spa

Seaside suites, a relaxing hot tub, lavish spa, and delicious American fare come together at one of the top luxury hotels in New Hampshire. Wentworth by the Sea features so many luxe amenities in and beyond your room you’ll want to move in permanently. A trip to New Castle Island would be wasted, though, if you didn’t explore the shops, cafés, and historical attractions of nearby Portsmouth. Hop on a harbor cruise for amazing ocean views.

5. RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain

RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain has an outdoor hot tub for 12 overlooking the White Mountains. Need we say more? As you wish – there’s also a heated indoor-to-outdoor pool and a veritable “pamperdome” in the lavish Solstice North Day Spa. When hunger pangs strike, the restaurant serves steaks, chicken parmesan, and plenty more Italian favourites. Feeling flush? You can buy any of their extraordinary suites – and move into your awesome abode permanently.

6. Bedford Village Inn

Fair warning: the Bedford Village Inn may forever taint the way you define luxury. The Luxe Salon and Spa is a heavenly retreat that will leave you feeling as weightless as an astronaut. The outdoor hot tub and naturally heated salt water pool are exquisite experiences, before you lounge by the al fresco fireplace. And the suites will leave you breathless – featuring Italian marble bathrooms with private whirlpool tubs and Molton Brown toiletries. Why go home?

7. Omni Bretton Arms Inn at Mount Washington

At this white and red-roofed pile, the life aquatic is very agreeable indeed. The outdoor pool is a generous idyll with leafy views. The indoor pool is a tranquil oasis, lined with relaxing white loungers. Marble-clad bathrooms beseech you to linger longer. And the spa is 25,000sqft (2,322sqm) of joy, delivering treatments laced with New England botanicals. Is there anything better than soaking, post-hike, in a hot tub? Maybe relocating, post hot tub soak, to the wine bar.

8. Lake Opechee Inn and Spa

Here’s a little holiday hack: choose a hotel that has a pool, a hot tub, and a natural body of water nearby – that way you can swim no matter the weather. At Lake Opechee Inn and Spa it’s plush towels at the ready as you ease into the indoor soaking pool, dive into the cooling depths of the lake, or relax in your suite’s two-person whirlpool spa tub. All you have to do is bring your swimsuit; this fine place will take care of everything else, including making you smile.

9. Mountain Edge Resort and Spa

Yep, this is some pretty great outdoors, by the tranquil shores of Lake Sunapee, but the indoors is every bit as great at Mountain Edge Resort and Spa, particularly if you like a good, indulgent spa session. Pamper yourself with a massage and body treatment then relax in the sauna. Sound too indolent? Thrash out a few lengths of breaststroke in the resort lap pool; but then be sure to take a soak in the hot tub afterwards – your muscles deserve a vacation, too.
