St. Moritz is full of impressive places to stay, but one outshines them all.
The impressive and charming boutique hotel Carlton St. Moritz was originally built in 1913, located in a splendid position above the Lake St. Moritz with stunningly beautiful views.
Then in 2007 the hotel was completely renovated by Carlo Rampazzi, the acclaimed Ticinese interior designer. His ability to combine nostalgic rarities, colourful freshness and elegant exclusivity has led to what is today a unique, refined character. Where once there were two hotel rooms, now there are single, luxurious and spacious suites, every one of which faces out over the lake.
The Carlton Hotel St. Moritz re-opens in December each year for a season that lasts until March.
The Carlton proudly boasts the village’s most beautiful terrace – the breathtaking sun terrace offers a gorgeous view, the typical champagne climate and the best box seat to enjoy the top events taking place on the Lake St. Moritz.
The Carlton bar captivates its guests with the two open and historic fireplaces which represent the cosiness of the whole Bel Etage. The bar is also a meeting point to have a cocktail before and after dinner, afternoon tea or some creative homemade delicacies.
Bright colours, incredibly comfortable beds and bathrooms big enough to fit an elephant, all junior suites and suites have been designed with an extraordinary focus on details, with aach equipped with a complimentary minibar, Nespresso machine and water kettle for tea as well as slippers and bathrobes for your spa experience.
The most luxurious hotel suite of them all on Top of the World, St. Moritz is the Carlton Penthouse: 386m2 with an overwhelming 360° view of the Engadine mountain scenery. The living room with the fireplace is the perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes with a hot chocolate or the traditional afternoon tea. Furthermore, the Penthouse includes three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, a library with an office area and a fully equipped kitchen.
Awarded with a Michelin star and 18 Gault-Millau gourmet guide points, the Restaurant Da Vittorio – St. Moritz offers culinary dreams. The master chefs Enrico and Roberto Cerea, who also own the restaurant “Da Vittorio” in Brusaporto which has been awarded with three Michelin stars, enthuse their guests with dishes from the Italian Lombardy region in this, the most exclusive location in St. Moritz. Meanwhile the head chef Gero Porstein and his team in a second restaurant, The Romanoff, serve fine authentic Swiss cuisine and Grisions specialities where the emphasis is placed on regional and seasonal products.
Over three floors and 1200m2 the Leading Spa provides its guests with a cosy feeling of well-being. Various saunas and steam baths including an area for women only, a hydro-massage shower, an ice fountain, a snow Kneipp trail, a sports pool as well as a heated indoor and outdoor pool – all of these await the hotel guest. And there is more: in six individually created treatment rooms with daylight the professionally trained massage therapists help to relax every single muscle.
“It is our privilege to deliver highest privacy, ultimate luxury and supreme quality,” says Dominic Bachofen, General Manager of the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz.
