In the midst of the St. Moritz Gourmet Festival, I had the privilege of escaping the hustle and bustle to immerse myself in the serene embrace of Carlton Hotel. Tucked away in the Engadine Valley, this exquisite retreat offered not just luxury, but a genuine sense of warmth and hospitality that felt like coming home. Here’s a glimpse into my personal journey of tranquility and indulgence at Carlton Hotel in St. Moritz.

Why Carlton Hotel St. Moritz stole My Heart

From the moment I stepped through the doors of Carlton Hotel, I was enveloped in an atmosphere of understated elegance and genuine hospitality. It felt less like checking into a hotel and more like being welcomed into a dear friend’s chalet, where every comfort was thoughtfully curated to ensure a memorable stay. The traditional Engadine architecture, combined with modern design elements, created a cozy yet sophisticated ambiance. What truly sets this hotel apart is the harmonious blend of modern architecture and interiors seamlessly intertwined with antique pieces rich in history and character. The carefully restored interior of the Bel Étage, which features two historic open fireplaces, forms the heart of the building.


With only 60 rooms this hotel stands as St. Moritz’s most intimate luxury destination, offering spacious accommodations and attentive service to cater to the needs of every guest. As I settled into my room, I was greeted by stunning views of the Engadine Mountains from my balcony. The warm colors and delicate fabrics enveloped me in a sense of tranquility, while the spaciousness provided a welcome retreat from the festivities of the Gourmet Festival. Carlton Hotel provided the perfect sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Ever dreamed of a retreat with breathtaking views? Their penthouse suite, spanning the entire eighth floor, offers just that. With five balconies providing a 360-degree panoramic vista of Lake St. Moritz and the surrounding mountains, it’s a haven of luxury. Complete with a living room fireplace, private lift access, 24-hour concierge service, and the option for an outdoor butler, it’s the epitome of indulgence.

Embracing Wellness and Indulgence

During my stay, I indulged in the holistic offerings of Carlton Hotel’s wellness facilities, including the “dipiù” Spa. There are also some weekly yoga sessions available. The Spa offered a blissful journey of self-care, allowing me to nourish both body and soul amidst the breathtaking beauty of the Swiss Alps. The heated outdoor pool was the cherry on the top!
