Did You Know? Alexander House Hotel


By: Five Star Alliance

The oldest part of the building that is now Alexander House Hotel dates back to the 17th Century, with a stone dating back to 1608 in the boundary wall.

The house is famed for its grandeur and connections to luminary poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, the Oxley family who had connections with the city of London and the former Governor of the Bank of England who purchased the estate in 1909. In 1984 the mansion was meticulously restored and re-named Alexander House.

In 2002 Utopia Leisure purchased Alexander House and an 18-month redecoration process transformed Alexander House into the elegant, stylish, luxury hotel it is today.

Happy 150th Birthday to Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains!


By: Five Star Alliance

Happy Birthday to Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains! The historical ski resort had its first winter season in 1814-15. 

Today, St. Moritz is one of the world's most famous holiday resorts. Chic, elegant and exclusive with a cosmopolitan ambiance, it is located 1,856 metres above sea level in the middle of the Upper Engadin lake landscape. But in September 1864 Swiss hotelier Johannes Badrutt was wondering how to fill his rooms during the winter. He made a bet with four English guests that if they came back at Christmas and didn't like it, he'd pay their travel costs.  

The guests liked their winter stay, and the area fast became a favorite playground for the rich and famous.
