At the highest point of the Engadin Valley, overlooking lakes and mountains, the Kulm Hotel has been welcoming guests since 1856, among them royalty, captains of industry and Hollywood stars. A winter and summer season resort, it is a charming blend of traditional elegance and modern comfort. All of its lovely rooms and suites offer mountain or lake views, and all provide round-the-clock pampering.
The Kulm has been called the “cradle of winter sports.” The first to promote St. Moritz as a winter destination, back in the late 19th century, the hotel played host to the winter Olympic games of 1928 and 1948, and continues to be the region’s center of sports and social activities.
Warm-weather options abound as well, from luxury golf packages at the Kulm’s own nine-hole executive course (with free green fees for guests) to tennis and hiking. Its quiet yet central location is ideally suited for business gatherings.
Spa-goers are drawn to the completely redesigned Kulm Spa St. Moritz. Set against imposing Alpine scenery, this oasis of wellness has at its core a holistic philosophy of relaxation, detoxification and regeneration of all the senses. Skiers and other sports enthusiasts will find it ideal for soothing sore muscles, and business travelers will appreciate the opportunity to unwind after a day of meetings.
