On top of the Alps - The Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains in St. Moritz
The lush Alpine settings, unspoilt nature and Swiss peacefulness combined with world-renowned events, elegant lifestyle and unlimited sports possibilities make St. Moritz and the Engadin one of the most beautiful and inspiring valleys in Switzerland. Located in the sporty heart of the chic Alps resort, the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains welcomes guests to a stylish and sporty luxury hotel with direct access to the mountains through the neighboring cable car.
The interior of the hotel harmoniously combines tradition with contemporary design. All 184 rooms and suites in the grand building with a rich tradition since 1864 are elegantly and timelessly appointed and historical photo motifs tell of the initial blossoming Alpine lifestyle. Carefully selected stylistic elements of the Engadin valley and natural materials create a simple yet elegant look. In addition, the residences, chalet suites with one to four bedrooms, offer luxurious living, individual design and space for a private retreat.
The three award-winning restaurants offer culinary delights: Les Saisons with Grill & Dine, Enoteca (14 GM) with the best the region has to offer and the gourmet restaurant Cà d'Oro (1 Michelin star, 17 GM) with Mediterranean cuisine. The entertainment in the lobby bar is modern and varied.
And not to forget the alpine Kempinski The Spa with the purifying and healthy water of the Mauritius spring. Glacier water, Bergeller granite, herbs and Engadine woods determine the noble atmosphere on 2,800 sq m (30,138.9 sq ft). The range of saunas, an indoor pool, Kneipp baths, fitness, sun terrace and the Ladies Spa offer relaxation with alpine flair.
Other amenities include the Kids Club with plenty of indoor and outdoor activities, a Cigar Lounge, four function rooms, the ski school and the Sport Shop with everything to make the perfect ski, mountain biking or hiking experience.
