Luxury Resorts: What could be better than spending a lavish weekend away in one of the most prestigious ski resorts in the world? The Badrutt Palace Hotel, a truly historical landmark, offers exclusivity, prestige and style to the distinguished traveler. This resort has seen some serious A-list action and has hosted international jet-setters and elite sports enthusiasts alike. In a hotel that is continuously named year after year as Switzerland's Leading Ski Resort, it epitomizes traditional elegance and European hospitality at its finest.
Majestically situated in Switzerland on St Mortiz Lake, and nestled between the unspoiled scenic backdrop of the Swiss Alps, first class service is the norm rather than the exception at the Badrutt Resort. The combination of fresh mountain air and award winning luxury accommodations will take your breath away. With glamorous events and exclusive shops, you'll feel more like you're on Rodeo Drive than in a quaint Swiss village.
The hotel is located in one of the most challenging ski areas in the world, and there is plenty to occupy your time; from skiing, snowboarding, paragliding, dog sledging, hiking, to tobogganing in the winter. It offers a host of summer alpine activities, including mountain biking, climbing, windsurfing, river rafting, tennis, golf and clay pigeon shooting. The hotel also boasts its own ski shop, school and private ice skating rink.
Featuring seven restaurants, four bars, and two members-only clubs (the Club Privé and the Corviglia Ski Club), The Badrutt Palace Hotel also boasts one of the most innovative restaurants. NOBU, a name that has an outstanding cult following is the meeting point for the rich and young audience, and is only open during the winter months. Le Restaurant offers buffet breakfasts and romantic candlelight dinners with dancing. The famous King's Club is the nightclub of choice, an exhilarating spot to get your groove on and be seen on the scene.
St Mortiz, known for its panache and style is where sport and fashion go hand in hand. The Badrutt Palace's 2006 winter opening is already gearing up to be the best, so pack your fur coat and Chanel ski jacket. You'll need them both.
