The bar at Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains

The exclusive resort town of St. Moritz in the Swiss Engadine Valley has been drawing glamorous jetsetters since the late 1900s. In fact, it is one of the oldest and perhaps most famous winter resorts in the world, playing host to the 1928 Winter Olympics. The turn-of-the-century-style Kempinski Grand Hôtel des Bains sits right in the heart of town, next to the aerial gondola, which takes skiers to the Corviglia slopes, and right next to the Engadine Marathon cross-country ski trail. The world-famed Hahnensee ski run finishes in front of the hotel. The property offers the signature understated-yet-luxurious "Grand Hotel" look and feel Kempinski hotels are known for. Ski fans will enjoy the property's own ski school and sport shop, with the latest styles from Bogner and Prada. Take a break from the kids via the complimentary "Kempi" Kids Club or relax in the hotel's luxurious spa, one of the best in all of Switzerland.
