With stunning architecture that is second to none, Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, Kulm Hotel St. Moritz, Grand Hotel des Bains Kempinski, Carlton Hotel St. Moritz and Suvretta House offer a unique blend of luxury, style and outstanding service at a level that has always been internationally renowned. Embedded among breathtaking natural scenery, the five grand hotels are the beating heart of St. Moritz.
When he opened Kulm Hotel St. Moritz in 1856, hotel pioneer Johannes Badrutt laid the foundations for the Swiss luxury hotel industry in the Alps. As the first guesthouse and Grand Hotel in the lavish Alpine resort, Kulm Hotel St. Moritz embodies grandeur, tradition and prestige at their very best. The legendary five-star hotel was crowned ‘Hotel of the Year 2018’ by Gault Millau, affirming that hospitality and outstanding service are still the cornerstones of true luxury today.
The spectacular Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, which opened its doors in 1896, was the second grand hotel to open in St. Moritz. Since then, the legendary luxury hotel has been home to illustrious guests from show business, culture and politics. The castle-like building, with its striking tower and green roof, quickly became a symbol of the lavish Alpine resort. The breathtaking view of the lake and mountains has long had a cult status, as has the outstanding service and the cosy atmosphere paired with stylish luxury.
With direct access to the Corviglia ski and hiking areas, and with 220 kilometres of cross-country ski routes on the hotel’s doorstep, the Grand Hotel des Bains Kempinski is a dream come true for summer and winter sports enthusiasts. Originally built as a spa hotel to take advantage of the famous St. Moritz healing mineral springs, the grand hotel continues to shine with its unique mix of nonchalance, elegance and luxury.
The magnificent Carlton Hotel St. Moritz celebrates the principle of ‘more is more’ like no other grand hotel. And it’s not just the extravagant interior, inspired by Russian tsars and designed by star Swiss architect Carlo Rampazzi, that proves this. The spectacular view of Lake St. Moritz from the hotel balconies and terraces offers an exclusive experience that is almost unsurpassed. And there’s nowhere that celebrates traditional English tea culture in quite the same magnificent way as here.
Nestled in the high Alpine landscape with a view of the majestic Engadin lakes, the traditional Suvretta House in St. Moritz has been an institution for years. The Swiss Deluxe hotel, which has always been family-owned, impresses with its exceptional location and legendary Grand Restaurant, where guests can experience the highest class of dining. A few dishes are prepared, filleted or carved directly at the table – a spectacular sight that is otherwise rare to find.
