Badrutt’s Palace launches new curated experiences to celebrate 100 years of Hitchcock and his lifelong love of St. Moritz

Badrutt’s Palace
To celebrate 100 years since esteemed British film director Alfred Hitchcock entered the film industry, iconic Alpine hotel, Badrutt’s Palace, where Hitchcock honeymooned in 1926, is launching a dedicated season-long package from the 28 June – 9 September.

Honoring his lifelong devotion to the hotel and the majestic Engadin valley ­- a regular inspiration for several of his hit films - the three-night experience will include a stay in The Hitchcock Suite (room 501), indulgent Hitchcock-inspired dishes, a cocktail making class in the storied Renaissance Bar, and live screenings of Hitchcock’s most celebrated films in the hotel’s celebrated Embassy Ballroom.  

For Hitchcock, the St. Moritz valley transcended personal attachment; the breath-takingly scenic views provided the backdrop for many of his most renowned films, including The Prude’s Fall (1924) and The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956), both showing off the prominent mountains sprinkled with stylish skiers. While sat at his desk in Room 501, he is said to have written The Birds (1963), inspired by the characteristic large flocks of mountain birds soaring high above the hotel’s turrets and spires. Stays in The Hitchcock Suite offer guests a profound sense of enchantment and creativity and a rare chance to experience the valley as Hitchcock once did. During the three-night stay, guests will also be spoiled with Hitchcock’s favourite delectable dishes at the hotel’s Le Restaurant and Le Grand Hall, such as Venetian schnitzel and fries, followed by panna cotta and mixed berries. After dinner, enjoy an evening in the Renaissance Bar learning how to make one of Hitchcock’s favourite drinks, The White Lady cocktail, which plays on the classic martini recipe with added egg white froth.  

For those craving a more exploratory experience, guests can quite literally follow in Hitchcock’s footsteps. His favourite St. Moritz spots include The Leaning Tower, which dates back to the 12th century and competes for the title of ‘most inclined tower in Europe’, followed by the rustic interiors of the hotel’s village restaurant, Chesa Veglia, a firm Hitchcock favourite.  

To book: the 3-night Holiday like Hitchcock package starts from 6,575 CHF / £4,835 per room on a double occupancy, B&B basis, including stays in the Hitchcock Suite, live screenings of Hitchcock’s films, and an hour cocktail-making class in the Renaissance bar.
