St. Moritz does not need any presentation: situated at over 1800 meters in one of the most beautiful areas in the Swiss Alps, the town is one of the top destinations for winter sports globally. Winter equivalent of the French Riviera, St. Moritz is known for its exceptional hotels. Of these, almost none rivals the Badrutts Palace.
Before becoming an international center of winter sports, st. Moritz was a summer resort frequented mostly by wealthy lords and industrialists from the United Kingdom, and the little Johannes Badrutt’s hotel was opened only a few months a year. Founded 115 years ago as a holiday destination in summer, Badrutt’s Palace shares the British legacy that we have talked in the past. Development of the winter palace started even after a bet made by the founder of a group of British guests.
In 1892, Johannes Badrutt bought palace Beau Rivage and in 1896, the hotel reopened its doors as a winter destination, after four years of restoration and modification. Since then and until now, Badrutt’s Palace became the favorite of several crowned heads, the elite of European society and the relaxation place of many actors from the golden era of Hollywood.
With over 320 days of sunshine per year, the Swiss resort is one of the safer choices for holidays both summer and winter. Few places in the Alps offers a greater chance of catching good weather almost all year.
Badrutt’s Palace, situated on the shores of Lake St. Moritz, take full advantage of the area’s natural advantages. In winter, guests can choose to go skiing or riding on the snow to play polo. Those who want more relaxation, can choose to make a balloon trip, and the adventurous can climb to the top helicopter mountain hotel in the area, and then descend on ski on some of the most spectacular routes in the world.
The hotel offers 157 rooms and deluxe classic Swiss-style furniture and equipped with everything expected from a top class hotel. 38 apartments are also available, with generous surfaces and open wide for the spectacular scenery of the Alps.
An outdoor pool with thermal water is available all year round, and complete spa center includes a vast selection of rejuvenation and relaxation treatments.
The six restaurants with local and international dishes, makes Badrutt’s Palace an excellent destination for gourmets. Worth mentioning Chesa Krk, a villa outside restaurant complex that offers guests the opportunity to choose a fully customized menu for their tastes. Renaissance Bar, created in collaboration with Dunhill house is designed connaiseur’s of whiskey and cigars, with access to an excellent selection of drinks and a calm atmosphere with large windows overlooking the mountains.
