The Kulm Hotel St. Moritz has had an eventful history and was instrumental in
turning the resort into a winter sports destination.
Originally, in 1855, the legendary hotel pioneer Johannes Badrutt rented a
property called Pension Faller, before purchasing it two years later and
transforming the building into the Hotel Engadiner Kulm, the village’s first hotel,
thereby laying the foundations for the Swiss luxury hotel industry in the Alps.
The pioneering spirit of this extraordinary hotelier continued in 1879, when he
had the first electric lighting in the country installed as a novelty.
Since the 19th century, the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz’s magical appeal has been
characterised by glamorous social events, such as the mysterious Laterna Magica
and stylish masked balls, which have been enjoyed by a steady stream of
European nobility and well-known people.
In 1928 and 1948, the park of the Kulm Hotel was the venue for the opening of
the Winter Olympic Games.
CHF7 million was spent reducing 33 rooms to just 26 in the New Kulm wing in 2015 and in 2012, CHF12 million was spent on the new Kulm Spa St. Moritz – all evidence of the
company’s ongoing commitment and restauration to the property.
Additional funds have been spent on a continuous programme of refreshing the
172 rooms, as and when necessary. The management team is particularly proud
of the Presidential Suite, with its use of local woods and discreet, warm colours;
located on the fifth floor, it has an impressive view over the Lake and Alps.
Other highlights include the construction in 2002/03 of the Résidence II with 21
luxury apartments, underground garage and conference rooms with space for 50
to 500 people, and the modern design of the 9-hole golf course. Investments
have also been made in new windows for a fully modernised kitchen, better
insulation, two new lifts and a new scullery for three of the restaurants.
The Kulm Hotel St. Moritz has 172 rooms, Luxury, Deluxe and Junior Suites of
varying sizes, all fitted with fine wooden furniture, elegant colours, premium
materials and selected elements of local handicraft. Charming accessories, the
highest comfort and the use of discreet technology (including free ADSL Internet
access) are to be found in all the rooms.
To ensure an exceptional sleeping experience, the beds have high quality
eiderdown pillows and duvets by Dauny, which can be chosen from a large
collection to suit individual needs. Many rooms can be connected to each other,
making them ideally suitable for family holidays.
In the standard and superior categories, guests can choose a room with a view
overlooking either the village of St. Moritz, Lake St. Moritz or the imposing
Corviglia/Piz Nair massif.
The elegant Deluxe rooms and Junior Suites are designed as stylish salons, and
nearly all of them have their own balcony from which to admire the view and
relax in the Alpine sunshine. The Luxury and Deluxe Suites are among the showpieces
of the hotel, and contain one to two bedrooms with a separate salon and
dining table, as well as a balcony with a fantastic view over the lake.

Formal dress is required in the elegant Grand Restaurant, where guests can
enjoy masterly gourmet cuisine. The dishes on offer range from carefully
prepared local Engadine specialities to international favourites. Whether visited in
the morning or later in the day, the lavish buffet breakfast and the six-course
menu or “à la carte” evening are feasts for the senses.
New since January 2017 is the historic Kulm Country Club, which was renovated
at a cost of CHF12 million, in the hotel grounds; it has a restaurant, which
operates a pop-up concept with an ever-rotating selection of internationally
famous chefs, and a bar. The renovation was overseen by the well-known
architect Norman Foster, who is a St. Moritz resident.
In late 2012, the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz opened the CHF12 million, 2,000 sq m
the Kulm Spa St. Moritz, with panoramic views over Lake St. Moritz and the
Engadine Valley that can now be enjoyed from an outdoor heated pool with
water jet features. Other features include a 20m-indoor pool area, Jacuzzi pool,
relaxation room and 13 treatment rooms including the private spa suite.
The Kulm Hotel’s own sports facilities include three tennis courts, curling rinks, a
natural ice-skating rink and a 9-hole golf course, which offers an intense and
demanding game thanks to its refined design. There are also 18-hole golf
courses in nearby Samedan and Zuoz where Kulm Hotel guests can play, subject
to reserving tee times. The Engadine has been regarded as the Alpine golfing paradise for over 125 years now, thanks to the region’s incomparable landscapes and panoramic views. The Kulm Golf course, which is nestled harmoniously in the high alpine landscape, definitely makes for an unforgettable golfing experience.
Golfers will find much to their liking at the hotel golf course since Kulm Hotel St. Moritz recently upgraded and redesigned the course – the oldest in the Alps. Suitable for beginners and pros alike, the Par-27 golf course is only a two minute walk from the hotel and is ideal for a short game, and to enjoy the very best views of Lake St. Moritz and the surrounding mountains.
