Overview

The Lowdown

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.

they are a 150 year old hotel, they are known for making St Moritz a winter destination! Who would have thought - this was only a summer destination!

The staff are super courteous.
the breakfast spread is lovely
The lobby is warm and cozy

And despite being so grand, it still has a comfortable vibe.

We spent the last week of the St. Moritz winter season at the Kulm Hotel. We had heard great things about the hotel and was always keen to try. It was also a special occasion where I would propose to my fiance hence, I wanted to make it memorable experience. My hats off to Ms. Laura Muller who gave me a had in organising the proposal on the Terrace of the Sunny Bar (one of the restaurants in the hotel). She was always easy to reach and gave great ideas depending on my request as well.

The staff was highly professional and sought to make our lives as simple as possible. The rooms itself was tidy and clean. The spa was also very luxurious with a wide range of spa treatments and relaxation options. Definitely one of the best ski hotels in Switzerland.

A class act of Exellence

We just got back from a wonderful week at Kulm Hotel St.Moritz, we and our joining friends had a fantastic experience. The staff are very professional, friendly, discrete and helpful. The rooms are tip top. The hotel has several restaurants including 1 star Michelin
however, we liked the main restaurant so much and it was included a 6 course meny in the half board accommodation. Breakfast had everything you can imagine, large buffet. The SPA is worth a trip, huge indoor swimming pool, outside jaccusi, several different saunas including steam, relax room. St.Moritz is one of the best ski resorts in Switzerland, we have been to most of them.

Pure Excellence - again!

I love this hotel. Again, after many stays, they surprise me. The new rooms are beautiful, alpine and modern at the same time. Also, the breakfast is amazing, as well as the Kulm Country Club and the Peruvian restaurant where you can expect an explosion of flavors. Congratulations!
