Kulm Hotel St. Moritz
What We Love
- A nine-hole golf course (one of the oldest and highest in the area) is a two-minute walk from the property
- The Miles Davis Lounge, a tony cigar bar with floor-to-ceiling windows
- The hotel’s new pop-up restaurant, which has hosted star chefs like Daniel Humm and Mauro Colagreco
- Panoramic Alps views from the spa
What To Know
- A “Very Important Kids” program allows pint-size guests luxuries like 24/7 hot chocolate delivery and baking lessons at the hotel’s pizzeria
- Deluxe Rooms were most recently refreshed
- The hotel’s extra indulgent private spa suite offers a bio sauna, steam bath, and Jacuzzi
- Switzerland’s first electric light switch was used here in 1879
French interior design whiz Pierre-Yves Rochon, who has lent his Midas touch to many a Four Seasons and Peninsula property, was tapped for the transformation of this St. Moritz mainstay. In addition to brightening the 172 guest rooms with a luxurious sky blue palette, he introduced noise-dampening floors, bathrooms freshly tiled in natural black stone, and ceilings paneled in stone pine wood that recall the hotel’s forest surrounds (studies have shown the squeaky-clean pine scent helps lower heart rates and enhances sleep quality). The result is a harmonious mix of opulence and comfort—incidentally, the ethos of this historic Alpine sanctuary. There are additional soothing flourishes everywhere: the indoor spa pool is equipped with an underwater music system, a consistently refreshed supply of Nespresso pods appears almost magically in your room, and there’s an extensive pillow menu. Even the palatial lobby, whose columns, furniture, and walls are swaddled in fine fabrics, seems like an additional turf for you to relax in—something you’ll happily welcome after a day of skating (there are two enormous rinks onsite), sledding, or toting your skis around nearby Corviglia.
In the Area
Though the property is a two-hour drive from Zurich, for a more scenic journey, take the three-hour train ride from Zurich’s Kloten Airport (which passes a marvelous mix of gorges and storybook-worthy alpine villages) to St. Moritz and hop on the hotel’s complimentary limousine shuttle. In the winter, highlights include bobsledding on the iconic Cresta Run (a natural ice skeleton racing toboggan track) and illuminated night trails for avid skiers, while the warmer months promise kiting, surfing, and sailing on nearby Lake Silvaplana. If you’re craving something more slow-paced, opt for a horse-drawn carriage ride—an especially alluring way to take in the surrounding peaks.
How to Get There
My husband & I stayed at the Kulm for 3 nights & loved it. The hotel is wonderful. The location & views are great, but it is the staff that sets this hotel apart. Everyone is extremely friendly & helpful, A fabulous place to stay.
Just forget all the other hotels, the Kulm is where you want to be.
Rooms are fantastic, Swiss cachet but not the Heidi type of decor
We were up graded in a junior suite, 485, with amazing view on the lake and the Alps
Amenities are great, we even had a bottle of Champagne.
First class spa with outdoor heated pool and all sorts of bubbles
Gym is a 10/10
Not to forget the restaurants and do try the breakfast on the terrace if weather allow, it is a dream
We leave tomorrow but we don’t want to!!
We have a wonderful time in St Moritz. Staying at Kulm St Moritz was amazing.
I celebrated my girlfriend birthday there and we have also have a wonderful peruvian cuisine, our first time. Its amazing.
It was an amazing experience we had at Kulm Hotel @ St. Moritz
Everything is really so fascinating; starting with the staff who are so welcoming, friendly and helpful (specially the concierge staff; they are really great).
The views, the rooms, the lobby, the spa, the pool, the location and the restaurants were one of the best I have ever been to.
I started thinking of returning back the moment I left the Hotel.
Highly recommended place and for sure I will go back to Kulm Hotel St. Moritz for any future skiing trips.
One of the best hotel that I visited over the world, at the same level of Plaza in New York, Ritz in Paris and Cristallo in Cortina.
A very high level of service and courtesy and a wonderful SPA.
All very fine.
