St Moritz's 'Grande Dame' to celebrate their 120th anniversary with package worth over £80,000

Badrutt’s Palace
Badrutt’s Palace, known as the ‘Grande Dame’ of St Moritz, prepares for a year of celebration after opening its doors 120 years ago. The festivities commence this winter, as the hotel launches an indulgent ‘120.000 CHF package’, worth over £80,000, to include private jet transfers, diamond-infused cocktails, a twelve-course gastronomic feast and helicopter rides over the snow-capped Engadin Valley.

The story began in 1896, when Casper Badrutt first opened the gates of the grand hotel, with the unmistakable green tower, and surrounding snow peppered streets lined with designer boutiques. Since that auspicious day, the Palace has been celebrated for its luxurious elegance, opulence and discrete service, garnering a loyal, celebrity following, from Audrey Hepburn to Alfred Hitchcock.   

Fast-forward to the present day, and the much anticipated ‘120.000 CHF package’. Distinguished guests are welcomed into a tailored fantasy, commencing with a private jet transfer to the hotel from Zurich or Milan. The Beau Rivage Suite leaves nothing to be desired by discerning guests, with its fine parquet flooring, relaxing steam sauna and marble bathtub, boasting panoramic views of the Engadin Mountains beyond. A vast balcony hosts epic views of Lake St Moritz which guests can breath in before retiring to their private living space, peppered with gold and velvet detailing.  

After a 120-minute helicopter ride, boasting heady views of the tangle of lakes, shifting snow dunes and Narnia-like landscaper beneath, guests can toast their experience with the Palace’s mot decadent cocktail – the 1.2 carat cocktail – which contains a 1.2 Graff diamond, from the purveyor of the world’s most sought after diamonds. A twelve-course gourmet dinner, served in the opulent Le Restaurant, one of the Palace’s six in house restaurants, completes the sumptuous offering, before guests are flown back to reality in their private jet.  

Alongside the ‘120.000 CHF package’, Badrutt’s Palace offers guests a plethora of winter activities and events, including the esteemed ‘Snow Polo World Cup St Moritz’ and 'White Turf' events, which sees the world’s best horsemen compete on the frozen lake. In January, Badrutt's Palace welcomes Nobuyuki Matsuhisa as a guest chef at the 2016 Gourmet Food Festival, while stars such as Umberto Tozzi, Dita von Teese and Ornella Vanoi take centre stage in the intimate Embassy Ballroom, during In [email protected] Palace.
