The Facts

  • Languages: Swiss German and Romansch, Romansch is still the most widely spoken language in parts of the Engadin
  • Heritage: 100% Swiss
  • Site: 1856 meters above sea level
  • Climate: High altitude keeps the town snowy and a prime winter spot
  • Wine: The Graubünden region… ‘Switzerland’s Burgundy’ produces beautiful Pinot Noirs.
  • Sports: Walk out the front door and onto the chair lift up to Corviglia - one of the best downhills in St. Moritz. With six slopes to choose from, you’ll never be bored.

Must-do: Winter and summer sports - no exceptions. After a long day on the mountains, head to the spa, or your room’s jacuzzi (looking at you Suvretta House) before an aperitif and a dinner of traditional cuisine. During your day of rest, enjoy prime shopping and gallery hopping in town, and late night energy (post-Covid, of course).

Gourmet

Elegant fine dining serving Authentic, alpine cuisine. Order local Swiss (Graubünden) or a Northern Italian wine for best pairings. Try cocktail hour at Anton’s Bar, followed by dinner downstairs in the Suvretta Stub - open for guests and members-only now; post-pandemic, by reservation in advance.

Stay

Suvretta House. The white glove state-of-the-art services, exceptionally friendly staff, well-maintained 100-year-old original build with modern amenities, spacious rooms immaculately decorated, live music just when you need it, delectable aperitifs by the fire, fondue evenings, multiple restaurants, a gorgeous spa overlooking Lake Silvaplana and southeast alps, and rotating exhibitions featuring Miros and Picassos, make this your landing spot on the mountain. You have everything, yet feels like the quietness of a boutique hotel - a nod to the excellent directive of the current management, the Egli’s.

Dress Code

Even during a pandemic, the town’s dazzling spirit lives on. Jackets embraced, jeans disgraced.

Anything we missed?

For Panoramic views, take the Bernina or Albula Railway lines to see the Unesco Heritage site (Rhaetian Railway) in its full glory. In the summer months, enjoy daily hikes and lake swimming.
