New 5* hotel for St Moritz
The Giardino Mountain Resort – St Moritz’s eighth 5-star hotel – opens its doors today in Switzerland. Surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Engadin, this exclusive hideaway is sited in the tiny village of Champfèr, just minutes away from the buzz of glamorous St Moritz.
With 78 ultra-sophisticated guestrooms and suites decorated with rustic elegance. According to Philippe Frutiger, manager of the Giardino Hotel Group, the atmosphere of the hotel is “casual Alpine chic… the destination of choice for modern urbanites, spa-seekers and families alike.”
Indeed, the hotel is surprisingly family-friendly. Its MOUNTAIN KIDSCLUB hosts a range of indoor and outdoor activities for little ones., while older kids enjoy the FREESTYLE ACADEMY, featuring computer games and their very own soft-drinks bar.
While your kids are enjoying themselves in the various clubs, you will be able to feast in one of several restaurants: choose from traditional Engadin raclettes and fondues in the Stuva restaurant, or the Ecco on Snow restaurant, featuring haute cuisine by two-Michelin-starred chef Rolf Fliegauf.
You can also luxuriate in the DIPIÙ Spa by Giardino – a blissful mountaintop health retreat with heated pool, wet and dry sauna, a fully-equipped work-out room, (with personal coach upon request), hairdressing service and an array of massages and beauty treatments, featuring its own cosmetic brand created using essences and natural ingredients from the vineyards of Ticino.
If you think this all sounds as blissful as we do, why not take advantage of their special Opening package deals (with prices from CHF315, valid until 22 December) and treat your family to a last-minute Christmas ski break?
