Did You Know? Kulm Hotel St Moritz

By: Five Star Alliance

Kulm Hotel St Moritz


In 1864, Kulm Hotel St Moritz was a popular summer resort with British guests. Determined to make the resort a year-round destination,  founder and hotel pioneer Johannes Badrutt made a daring bet with his guests. Extolling the virtues of sunny, pleasant winter days, Badrutt promised his guests that they would enjoy being on his terrace in their shirtsleeves during this period. Badrutt offered his doubtful guests free lodging if they didn't enjoy the winter. Amazingly, Badrutt won the bet. The British guests were so happy many of them stayed until Springtime, even going home with a suntan.

Book a stay at Badrutt's Palace Hotel-- known for its glam après-ski scene and exceptional facilities-- and you'll be living large in the lap of luxury. The hotel has organized a fabulous “Heli Adventure” package with a helicopter guide through the white peaks to let passionate skiers make their own tracks in untouched snow. In addition to the exclusive helicopter trip, this package includes a three-night stay with half board and a ski pass for the whole region, as well as a classic relaxation massage to help soothe tired muscles. The package starts at CHF 2,140 (approx $2,338 US) per person for a double room.
