Get away to a winter wonderland in the picturesque Catskill Mountain region, with snow-capped trees and mountain views. Resorts World Catskills is ideally located to offer access to the area’s best winter activities, and each of the 332 rooms in the all-suite hotel and parts of the gaming floor includes a full wall of windows so you can enjoy the scenic views without having to step outside.
Because the area is home to some of New York’s best mountain resorts for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, it also offers a variety of groomed and backcountry trails ideal for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. The casino resort’s full-service concierge is available 24 hours a day to arrange for an action-packed visit.
The impeccably designed rooms in the all-suite hotel are the ideal place to recharge, as they exude luxury across every perfectly appointed inch, ranging from 600 square feet to palatial penthouses reaching over 2,000 square feet.
Relax indoors at the Crystal Life Spa and indulge in holistic treatments that offer the serenity that only a mountain setting can provide. The spa includes six treatment rooms for massages, facials and full body treatments, hair and nail salons, relaxation lounges with luxurious amenities, steam rooms, and saunas, and a sun-drenched indoor Spa pool with cabanas, which offer an amazing winter escape.
