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.
