One of our favourite hotel’s has to be the glamorous alpine hideaway resort, Badrutt’s Palace. Overlooking the ski resort’s renowned lake, this hotel has also been home to many famous faces over the years, including Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich and Charlie Chaplin. Today, the hotel remains the region’s most historic landmark and boasts sophistication at every corner. From the moment guests walk through the door they will find themselves in the expansive lobby, with its original carved wood ceiling, and dedicated staff ready to look after their every need. 

Throughout the hotel, Persian carpets line the floors, flock wallpaper and upholstered armchairs evoke a timeless charm in every room. Each of the 156 guestrooms and suites come with magnificent views across the lake, or the charming village centre, all with unique designs and layouts characterizing the history of the hotel. Traditional furnishings decorate each room with plush upholstered headboards, classic armchairs and dark woods, whilst the marble bathrooms are fitted with black granite countertops, rain showers and terry cloth robes. The Hans Badrutt Suite  is especially noteworthy boasting an impressive marble lobby, leading to a spacious living room with a grand piano and a spacious bedroom with dressing room and jacuzzi. 

Dining at Badrutt’s Palace is an experience of its own, with six restaurants and bars to choose from. From traditional Swiss specialties and signature pizza, to internationally inspired cuisine or healthy poke bowls, there are options to suit the most particular of tastes. Le Grand Hall, the legendary hotel lobby, has expansive views & extravagant architecture, with a menu that fuses cuisines from all over the world. Afternoon Tea is served daily as well as champagne and caviar, all accompanied by a live pianist.

The Renaissance Bar offers an array of exotic and creative cocktail fusions, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, that head Barman Andrea Delvo is constantly developing and changing. For true chocolate lovers, some of the best Swiss chocolate can be sampled at the Chocolate Cult Buffet, part of the St Moritz Gourmet Festival each year. Held in the Le Grand Hall from December to the beginning of January, the buffet showcases the very best of chocolate and patisserie, as well as many other fantastic food creations. 

It seems like there are endless amounts of winter activities to choose from in this beautiful valley, with activities to suit the entire family. Within the hotel guests can find a state-of-the-art fitness centre, yoga studio and Wellness Spa, complete with an indoor infinity pool and bespoke treatments. Badrutt’s Palace also has its very own ice skating rink, with an expansive well-groomed surface, suitable for all levels. Just a short distance away from the hotel there are countless skiing opportunities, tobogganing, hiking, snowboarding, and even paragliding excursions over the snowy rooftops and mountain summits. Guests can take a helicopter flight from the highest airport in Europe, showcasing the dazzling peaks of Piz Bernina and Piz Palu. For those tired of a long day on the slopes, a carriage ride awaits, directly outside of the hotel, crossing the snow-covered surroundings and frozen lakes enroute to Stazerwald. In the summer months guests can enjoy equally diverse activities, ranging from sailing, stand-up-paddling, river rafting and kitesurfing. Within easy reach of the hotel is the Pontresina Rope Park, which can be enjoyed all year round, with a zip-line park and natural climbing walls, surrounded by magnificent nature. 

One of the best ways to end your experience at St Moritz is the Glacier Express scenic railway, which carves its way through the unforgettable mountain scenery of the Swiss Alps. This is the world’s slowest express train, and travels along one of the most beautiful stretches of railway in the world, running all the way to Zermatt. Opened in 1930, the experience has remained one of elegance and comfort, building up its reputation as a distinctive first-class Swiss tourism product. ‘Excellence Class’ is particularly brilliant, providing a professional concierge service, assisting guests with their bags and showing them to their seats, remaining at their disposal for the duration of their ride. Whilst slowly climbing through the mountains a five-star lunch is served, with constant champagne top ups and a fine selection of local and international wines. With such an array of unique opportunities, St Moritz is a once in a lifetime destination that can be enjoyed all 12 months of the year.
