The three-storey children's villa is a perfect playground for little ones.
Spanning six pristine buildings on the German Baltic coast, Grand Hotel Heiligendamm is described by locals as the "white town by the sea". Classical architecture, including an early-19th-century castle built by Grand Duke Paul Frederick, is surrounded by dense beech forest. Buildings are uniformly white. It's the kind of place you might expect to find a unicorn trotting alongside seven suspiciously short diamond miners.
Rooms decorated in regal whites, blues, and reds range in size from 320 to 430 sq. ft. Each comes equipped with king-size bed, DSL connection, heated towel rack, and marble bathroom with heated floor. Suites skew considerably larger (as large as 861 sq. ft.) and feature similar amenities. The Heiligendamm Spa, in business since the 18th century, offers men's treatments and medical checkups (blood analysis, anyone?) alongside the usual panoply of more traditional options.
Horseback riding, water sports and golf are favorite leisure activities.
