A good night’s sleep is the ultimate vacation luxury, but getting eight (or more) hours can be difficult in a new environment. Add in jet lag, uncomfortable hotel beds, and loud guests, and you might spend your whole trip dreaming about your bed back home—unless you stay at one of these hotels featuring unique sleep-focused amenities designed to lull you into an amazing night’s rest.
Dream Butlers, Tschuggen Grand Hotel
While you’re enjoying a relaxing footbath and massage at the Tschuggen Grand Hotel, your Dream Butler is hard at work preparing your room with a special turndown service that sets the mood for rest. The room’s temperature, humidity, and lighting will be dialed into the perfect settings for slumber, and a scented candle, pillow spray, and bedtime book will be laid out.
The hotel partnered with the Hofklinik, a leading sleep center in Lucerne, to create this sleep program, which includes an easily digestible meal and a selection of teas containing ingredients known to help with rest.
The Art + Science of Sleep, Equinox Hotel
New York may be the city that never sleeps, but guests at the Equinox Hotel won’t have that problem. Rooms are specifically engineered to promote slumber and are equipped with a “quiet, dark, cool” setting you can activate at the touch of a button for perfect sleeping conditions.
Even the beds are optimized for sleep, and if you fall in love with them, the hotel’s proprietary sleep system, from the mattress to the duvet, can be purchased to take home.
Truly tired travelers should book the Art + Science of Sleep program, a two-night stay that includes time on a spa wave table that claims to provide the equivalent of three hours of sleep in 30 minutes, two cryotherapy treatments, hot and cold pool plunges, food and beverages that naturally increase melatonin production, and in-room sleep-enhancing rituals.
Langham Sleep Matters By Chuan, Langham Hotels
“Sleep plays a vital role in a memorable travel experience for our guests. Helping our guests enjoy a good night’s sleep allows them to experience a more enjoyable vacation or higher productivity on a business trip,” says Michele Grosso, Managing Director at The Langham, Boston. That’s why all Langham hotels worldwide offer the Sleep Matters program, a program Grosso says is “designed to enhance the wellness of our guests while also giving them tools they can take home and continue to practice long after their stay.”
Created in partnership with Chuan spas, guests will receive sleep-inducing amenities, including tips on enhancing sleep quality, breathing exercises, and a calming pre-bed playlist.
Guests can also choose their perfect pillow from the Langham’s pillow menu—a soothing lavender-scented one is the most popular.
Rest & Recovery Suite, Hotel Figueroa
For guests who book the Rest & Recovery Suite at Hotel Figueroa, the experience starts before arrival when you can pre-order a customized pillow from Pluto Pillow designed to suit your sleeping preferences.
Once you arrive, you’ll pop in the complimentary Bollsen earplugs and drift off to sleep in an Eight Sleep mattress, a smart mattress that automatically adjusts the temperature on both sides of the bed (so you and your partner won’t spend your trip fighting over the thermostat.)
Greet the day gradually, as the suite’s Loftie Lamp wakes you up naturally with a “personal sunrise” instead of a blaring alarm.
Sleep Program, Six Senses Ibiza
Want to be well-rested even when you’re not on vacation? Guests who are serious about sleep can sign up for the Sleep Program at Six Senses Ibiza, designed to help establish a sustainable sleep routine that can be practiced at home.
Choose from a three-, five-, or seven-night program, depending on how much time (and budget) you have to devote to sleep. Participants will wear a biometric tracker and have their sleep data analyzed by the on-site Sleep Doctor, who will then offer customized advice for sleeping better.
Royal Sleep Experience, Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa
Normally a day spent champagne-tasting doesn’t result in the best quality of sleep later that night, so leave some extra time to recover on your vacation in the Champagne region of France by booking the Royal Champagne Hotel’s Royal Sleep Experience.
At the hotel’s Le Bellevue restaurant, participants will dine from a special sleep-enhancing menu paired with a “Sleeping Beauty” mocktail. Back in their room, a sleep kit with melatonin-based supplement drops, sleep spray, satin sleeping mask, and guided meditation sessions awaits.
Hästens Sleep Spa, CBR Boutique Hotel
Hästens makes some of the most expensive mattresses in the world, with custom models costing over $500,000. The beds are made entirely by hand, using layers of horsehair, cotton wool, and flax hand-placed springs designed to mold to and cradle the user.
The brand is so proud of its mattresses that it opened CBR Boutique Hotel, a fifteen-room hotel showcasing Hästens’ mattresses, pillows, linens, and bathrobes. It’s the only hotel in the world where you can experience the Hästens sleep system, so be warned—you may leave wanting the mattress for yourself as a very expensive souvenir.
