In a setting sublime as Engadine, in the soul of the Swiss Alps, it only seems fitting that one hotel would emerge as the pinnacle of luxury.

Dating back to 1913, the building is a former eighteenth century girls’ boarding school and retains its typical Swiss architecture and traditional Engadine paintwork. Now, Giardino Mountain is known as one of Europe’s most beautiful mountain hotels with contemporary style.


In a delightful and masterfully employed study in contrasts, the 78 guest rooms and suites of Giardino Mountain are a mashup of alpine chic and Mediterranean nonchalance. Italian fabrics, designer objets d‘art and the hotel’s unique historic structure ensure that no two rooms are exactly alike. Most rooms feature a balcony or terrace and some have a soaking bathtub right in the room. Guests may also choose from several suite options, with separate living and sleeping areas.


Stays include a hearty breakfast buffet, WiFi and access to the dipiù Spa and indoor pool. Families are encouraged to make use of the Mountain Kids Club and Freestyle Academy – children up to 12 stay free in their parents’ room. Pickup service to and from the St. Moritz train station and mountain stations Corviglia and Corvatsch is provided. Bicycles are available in the summertime.


First order of business at Giardino Mountain? Get out and play. Perfect for every season, Giardino Mountain caters to both winter sports enthusiasts and those looking to get outdoors and enjoy summer in the Alps with activities such as hiking and cycling or relaxing at the dipiù flagship Spa with its indoor pool and broad range of treatments.


Giardino Mountain offers an array of culinary experiences, from the two-Michelin-starred Ecco St. Moritz restaurant to the Ayurveda-inspired cuisine at Hide & Seek, or you could take an exclusive snow break in Giardino’s lounge at the famous El Paradiso mountain lodge. Stüva is the place for local, hearty Engadine specialties.


Giardino Mountain is the ultimate winter wonderland, this five-star Swiss retreat is located in the picturesque village of Champfèr, near St. Moritz, overlooking the breathtaking panorama of the Upper Engadine and Lake Silvaplana. The hotel is a 15-minute drive from the St. Moritz train station. Guests may also arrive into Zurich train station, Zurich Airport and Milan Airport, with longer drives to the hotel.
