St Moritz

St Moritz, world famous for its glamorous reputation, has hosted the Olympics and World Championships. In 2015 it celebrated 150 years of winter tourism. That’s when Johannes Badrutt persuaded British tourists, with a money back guarantee, that sunny St Moritz was the place for winter sports. It also has a lesser known side: that of its ancient Romansh culture, language, and heritage. You see it in the indigenous sgrafitto architecture, signage and hear it in local conversations. Foremost though is the natural beauty of St. Moritz. This sophisticated town, curves like a crescent moon around its lake, is crowned by glacier-draped peaks. It also has the nerve wracking Cresta and bobsled runs; golf, polo and horse racing each winter on its lake; and almost unlimited window-shopping, for any European designer worth his salt, has a boutique here. For foodies, as of 2021, there are four Michelin starred restaurants in town. For passive intrigue, afternoon tea at Hanselmann’s is a must, offering some of the best people watching anywhere.

Then there is St. Moritz’ legendary skiing – where it all started, the cradle of winter tourism. It’s the only resort to host the Olympics and the World Championships twice – all for good reason: there are 16 ski areas in two valleys included on the ski pass. Some of the 217 miles of trails may have pink snow blown north by Sahara winds. There are 56 lifts and Europe’s first six-passenger chair. Today the newest technology takes you to the pistes and to more than 34 mountain restaurants for revival and enjoyment. All are interconnected by train or post bus included in your ski pass. Cross country enthusiasts can join 13,000 others in early March for the annual marathon. After, to recover, go to their Hallenbad spa dating from Roman times.

The stars just keep coming to the Kulm, literally and figuratively: it was Gault-Millau’s Hotel of the Year in 2018 and now has a Michelin star for its K Restaurant and chef, Mauro Colagreco. So its more than 165 years of excellence continue. It was St. Moritz’s first hotel, opened in 1856 by Johannes Badrutt. Then in 1878, it surprised Christmas guests with dinner served by electric light, a first in Europe! Today as you enter, bouquets of fresh flowers line the pillared reception and a warm fireplace lounge greets  guests. The 164 rooms and suites, many with Swiss stone pine paneling, subtly blend the historic with unique modern comforts and finest furnishings even down to the bed linens. Bathrooms have large picture windows looking out to the lake and the snow covered peaks beyond. The 65-foot glass-walled pool and spa offer cures originally known to the Romans that we’ve come to enjoy: a whirlpool, aromatic steam baths, saunas, and a Caldarium. The Kulm’s renowned hospitality continues – yes, come and be spoiled.
