By far the biggest, and perhaps the best, of the hotels in St. Moritz. Opened in 1892 by Caspar Badrutt – son of Johannes Badrutt – Badrutt’s Palace has become part of St. Moritz’s glittering history. The hotel stands proud 1,856-metres above sea level, with many of its extremely well-appointed rooms enjoying superb views over the lake and out towards the surrounding mountains. Everything is decked out with traditional mountain decor, and amenities include a whopping seven restaurants, four bars and two nightclubs; indeed, if it wasn’t for the snow-laden slopes outside there’d be no reason to leave at all. In recent years the hotel has undergone serious renovations to ensure it continues to cater for contemporary guests – and it does, we assure you.
