    Our opinion

    Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains - True Alpine splendour awaits at this luxury spa.

    Hotel description

    The luxurious Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains was the first hotel to be built in St. Moritz, constructed in 1864 at the source of the Mauritius springs which have been used since Mediaeval times for their therapeutic benefits and which inspired the early development of this now famous spa resort. Offering traditional elegance in a breathtaking Alpine location, the hotel is spectacular and exhibits exquisite attention to detail in every aspect of its Italian palazzo-style design. Set against the imposing backdrop of the eternally snow-capped mountains, the turrets and two main towers of this fairytale castle strike a dramatic silhouette against the clear blue skies. St. Moritz is situated 1,865 metres above sea level in the Upper Engadine region, and for most of the year enjoys a sunny and dry ‘champagne climate’ which attracts as many visitors in the summer months as in winter.Antique furniture and paintings, intricate cornicing detail and delicate chandeliers heighten the sleek grandeur and ambience of the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains. The impressive lobby has high ceilings, marble floors and white stucco detailing worthy of a palatial residence, and the restaurant and bar Enoteca La Vigna features a 19th Century tiled stove and original frescoes which have been carefully restored to their original beauty, based on photographs and etchings which similarly informed all of the restoration work on the hotel.Classicism and modernity have been seamlessly blended with the creation of the new Spa building, which also houses 14 suites. The extensive 2500 square metre St. Moritz Spa pays homage to the therapeutic powers of the Alpine environment in every aspect of design. Wood, water, stone and natural lighting in every treatment room create a truly organic ambience which is similarly echoed in the styles and characteristics of the therapies. The swimming pool, heated to an inviting 29 degrees Centigrade and classically designed with an Art Deco edge to the simple black and white colour scheme, backs onto the imposing rock face of the mountainside.Fine dining is an essential feature of the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains. ‘Les Saisons’ offers international and seasonal cuisine: guests can select from an appetising array of a la carte dishes or from the gourmet menu which changes daily. ‘Ca d’Oro’, awarded an impressive 15 Gault Millau points, specialises in innovative variations on traditional Italian dishes. Its combination of traditional sophistication and superior service with contemporary furnishings and vibrant modern paintings creates an ambience which is both comfortable and stylish.The guestrooms are modern and welcoming, using the warm tones of cherry wood and a soft colour palette to soothe and contrast with the brilliance of the natural landscape outside. For the ultimate indulgent experience there are two opulent suites; located in the towers of the hotel they are faultlessly executed in refined colour schemes of golden tones, rich reds and champagnes befitting of royalty. The Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains offers the discerning guest a luxurious pampering experience in an idyllic location throughout the year.
