    Our opinion

    The Giardino Mountain is a luxury hotel offering something for all guests, including a kids’ club, proximity to the summer sports of St Moritz, and fine-dining.

    Hotel description

    The five star superior Giardino Mountain is a gem amongst hotels in the Engadines, identifying itself as a ‘breakout retreat.’ The exterior of the hotel blends seamlessly with the rest of Champfer, channelling traditional Alpine style with its white-washed walls, wooden-framed windows and wooden beamed roof. A vast courtyard divides up the hotel buildings, adorned with lush green lawns, quiet areas beneath parasols for relaxation, and a collection of tables for enjoying afternoon drinks and light snacks. The front gate and arched front door seem to introduce guests to a truly fairytale location. Inside, the wooden ceilings are supported by white-washed pillars, which help to create not only a very open, airy feel, but a very authentic style. In Restaurant Guardalej, sections of painted panelled ceiling add a touch of grandeur, along with the white table cloths, floral centrepieces, stunningly presented gourmet food, and sparkling glass chandeliers. Bright bursts of colour, in the flowers encased in glass jars, the upholstery of the chairs, and the sleek black surface of the breakfast counter bring the classical aspects up to date. Restaurant Stuva is a more homely, rustic restaurant, taking its inspiration from its mountain setting, and serving very traditional, famous Swiss flavours. Curtains draped across the windows and golden lamps add to the cosiness of the room and the heartiness of the food. For something truly unique, however, dine in the Ecco St Moritz restaurant, where the white, silver, and gold walls sparkle with ancient-inspired carvings. Dining here is atmospherically lit, and the food is refreshingly experimental. The Dipiu Spa has a stunning indoor infinity pool, lined with large relaxation beds, treatment rooms, and large windows offering beautiful views. With their own line of beauty treatments and products, this is the perfect place to unwind after a day in the sun exploring the local area. After dinner and evening drinks in the Hotel Bar, retire to your chic luxury room. A neutral palette is enlivened by touches of gold and marble, and unique additions such as sculpted lamp-stands, subtle mountain murals on the bathroom glass, and splashes of colour in bright rugs and flowers. Whilst remaining in-keeping with the style of the ground floor of the hotel, the guestrooms provide a very tranquil retreat that seems perfect for its location, with wooden feature walls and sensational views. Expressions Holidays recommends staying for a few nights or a week at this wonderful St Moritz resort as part of a rail touring holiday in Switzerland, to make the most of the varied dining options, the luxurious rooms, and its proximity to the village of St Moritz itself, lakes St Moritz and Silvaplana, and the iconic Engadine mountains.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    St Moritz is one of the most famous Alpine resorts in the world. It stands at 1856m above sea level, and therefore attracts winter sports enthusiasts. The stunning views across the Upper Engadine Valley are perhaps even more beautiful in the summer. The surrounding mountain peaks can be reached by funicular railway, as can Piz Corvatsch, Chantarella, and Corviglia, where you can take a cable car up to Suvretta’s best vantage point.

    Sports nearby

    Hiking, walking, and climbing; water sports on the nearby lakes.

    Children

    Children under the age of 12 stay free in their parents’ room. A kids’ and teenagers’ club is available to entertain younger guests.
