Relais San Maurizio
Scale of 90-100
Originally a 17th-century monastery and later an aristocratic residence, this superb hotel is perched on a hillside with gorgeous views over the steep vineyards that produce Moscato d’Asti. There are 36 rooms and suites, including six exquisite gem-themed Grand Luxury guest quarters in the separate Suites San Luigi. Each suite has unique features: Pearl has two private gardens, one with a Jacuzzi, a guest-living room with a sofa bed, two baths, a whirlpool tub in the main bedroom, a private wine cellar and panoramic views over the vineyards. Diamond comes with a grand piano. Other amenities include a Michelin-starred restaurant, a relaxed bistro, a trellised bar, a cigar room, a first-rate spa and both an indoor and a seasonal outdoor swimming pool. The hotel can arrange private truffle-hunting excursions and guided visits to local wineries and cheese shops.

The comfort and stylish design of the Suites San Luigi; the fine restaurant and spa.
The front desk staff could be more attentive and efficient; charging for the capsules for our espresso machine seemed rather miserly.
Good to Know
Since the spa is very popular, treatments should be booked well before you arrive. These include thalassotherapy treatments in a salt cave. The former cellars house a larch-log vat used for hot wine baths.
