Situated amidst luscious landscapes, the Grand Hotel Kronenhof offers guests with a truly breathtaking experience that will have you believing you have stepped inside the colourful world of a black and white film, in a bygone era we can now only dream of having lived in.
Beginning with a warm welcome at check-in, my initial expectations were exceeded within minutes of entering the property. Boasting an extraordinarily grand lobby, the Kronenhof was outfitted with noble wood, luxurious fabrics, and heavily weighted chandeliers gloriously drawing ones’ attention to the high ceilings.
The Grand hotel Kronenhof is home to 67 rooms, 37 junior suites and an additional 9 suites, all integrating modern technologies to provide guests with all the comforts of the 21st Century, whilst retaining an historic charm. No visit to the Kronenhof would be complete without experiencing the hotel’s premier fine dining at the Grand Restaurant. Dress code is enforced, ensuring guests are similarly enjoying a quality experience in luxurious surrounds. Service during dinner service is hardly believable, with waiters exceeding guests’ expectations by providing the highest level of standard.
The well-appointed wellness area offers panoramic views from the very comfort of the indoor swimming pool, which also happens to delight guests with underwater music. This is matched with a men and women’s sauna, thirteen treatment rooms, fitness area with personal trainers, and an in-house hair salon. As if that weren’t enough, the Kronenhof has also ensured the property is aptly suited to families, by providing an in-house bowling alley, as well as a kids programme and baby sitting facilities.
The Grand Hotel Kronenhof is conveniently located a short drive from the popular St. Moritz, making it the ideal location for visitors to escape the hustle and bustle in nearby Pontresina. With service that would be hard to match, the Kronenhof retains its historic charm and ensures guests enjoy an authentic Swiss experience in lavish yet humbly welcoming surrounds.
