Although St. Moritz is known as a ski lover’s paradise, non-skiers will still find plenty to entertain them. Badrutt’s Palace Hotel offers a variety of pastimes for those who prefer a slower, more relaxed and less adventurous pace. From a luxurious treatment in Palace Wellness to the delicious dishes prepared by the chefs in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, there’re countless ways to spend a truly remarkable and unforgettable day without putting on your skis.
While skiers hurry off to get on the slopes, you can enjoy your morning at a much more leisurely pace. They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, it is prepared with only the freshest ingredients and served in an elegant, classical setting. A scrumptious feast awaits you at Le Restaurant, where you’ll find your heart’s every desire, whether you like a full English breakfast with eggs, bacon and all the trimmings or prefer a lighter dish including yogurt, cereal and juice. Sit back and savour your meal while the soothing music of the harp fills the air. After all, it’s never too early in the day to enjoy the finer things in life.
After breakfast, bundle up for a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride around Lake St. Moritz. The concierge in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel can arrange for the carriage to pick you up right in front of the hotel for a truly unique and unforgettable experience. Take in the views, enjoy the fresh mountain air and admire the panorama as beautiful Engadin unfolds before your eyes.
St. Moritz is known for being a sun-kissed destination even in the depths of winter, so having lunch on Badrutt’s Palace Hotel’s terrace is not unheard of even during the colder months. Afterwards, indulge in a spot of shopping: the Palace Galerie, right on the doorstep of Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, combines the finest international brands in the world’s most compact and most luxurious shopping arcade. Here you’ll find the latest collections by top designers, jewellers and artists – a real treat for shopaholics!
The afternoon is also the perfect time of the day to get moving a little bit! Did you know that Badrutt’s Palace Hotel has its own ice rink? So why not take a spin and test your skating skills under the blue Engadin skies? After such a full day, Palace Wellness offers you the chance to rest and relax in style. With its breathtaking mountain views, the indoor pool is a place of tranquillity and rejuvenation. Perhaps an Alpeor Skin Renewal treatment is in order to get ready for a big night out! Alternatively, afternoon tea is a moment of pure relaxation, so give in to the temptation and indulge in all Le Grand Hall has to offer. A classy scone or a fresh buttery pastry perhaps, or maybe a sandwich and a glass of champagne. Rules are suspended during afternoon tea – it’s a time of enjoyment, when friends get together for profound conversations or light-hearted chat.
As the evening begins, unwind with a delicious cocktail at the Renaissance Bar and enjoy some of the best dining in the area without even leaving the hotel: from traditional French cuisine at Le Restaurant to the new La Coupole/Matsuhisa@Badrutt’s Palace, where you can taste Japanese-Peruvian cuisine, Badrutt’s Palace Hotel takes gastronomy to a whole new level.
When dinner is over, the night is still young! Stop by the King’s Club and party the night away at one of St. Moritz’s most iconic establishments. Don’t be surprised if you spot a celebrity: the King’s Club is known to be a favourite with many VIPs.
