St Moritz is arguably the most elegant holiday resort on the planet, especially in winter months. And not for nothing do the rich and the famous flock here when the temperatures start to fall. Within the space of just a few square kilometres, this once-sleepy Alpine town is now home to a number of luxury hotels, as well as chic restaurants and bars that wouldn’t look out of place in Central London or Paris, let alone up a snow-topped mountain. Among the most popular of these five-star hotels is the stunning Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains.
Situated right next to the Mauritius spring, the spring that the town was originally built around, it offers 184 luxury rooms and suites, in addition to 27 high-class residences for short or long stays in the resort. As might be expected, all of the accommodation is truly world-class. The rooms are all equipped to the very highest standard, with full entertainment systems as standard, and guests have a choice of traditional Alpine or contemporary chic, with 11 styles in total to choose from. But the quality of the accommodation of offer is just one reason that makes the Kempinski Grand Hotel such a top choice with the discerning traveller. One other big draw is its unbeatable location, right in the heart of bustling St Moritz.
The world-famous Hahnensee ski runs ends right in front of the hotel lobby, while for cross-country enthusiasts, the hotel is on the route of the legendary Engadine ski marathon, giving guests the chance to get out and explore the stunning Corviglia region. And, once the snow melts, the hotel also serves as a perfect base for hiking, climbing and wild swimming in the many lakes surrounding the popular resort town. After a hard day on the slopes or trails, the Kempinski Grand Hotel has everything even the most demanding guest could want to unwind.
The hotel itself boasts four restaurants, including the Michelin Star-rated Ca d’Oro, which serves up traditional Swiss cuisine with a contemporary twist.Then, when dinner is done, guests have the chance to retreat to the Kempinski Bar and Lobby, where resident DJs play well into the early hours of the mornings and guests sip cocktails and champagne while looking out over the moonlit mountains.
