St Moritz is one of the most stylish ski resorts in Switzerland, known for its wealthy clientele, expansive ski area and snow-sure altitude. Arguably, winter sports holidays were born here in the 1860s when hotelier Johannes Badrutt encouraged his British guests to visit in the winter. It’s no wonder that since then, St Moritz has hosted two Winter Olympics. Nowadays, visitors flock here in the winter, but many still enjoy its original summer pursuits of swimming in the lake and hiking, alongside the addition of mountain biking. We’ve selected the best hotels that this beautiful town has to offer.
Grand in every sense of the word, the enormous five-star Kempinski Grand Hotel is the perfect place to stay for ski-lovers who want to sojourn in style. It is right at the foot of the renowned Hahnensee slope with direct access to the main gondola up the mountain. If the weather turns inclement, seek refuge in the luxurious on-site spa – there’s a heated indoor pool, sauna complex and indulgent spa treatments for aching muscles. Choose from four hotel restaurants, including the one-Michelin-star Cà d’Oro.
