Consistently voted the best hotel in Switzerland, the 5-star superior Grand Hotel Kronenhof in Pontresina is one of the most architecturally significant Grand Hotels in the Alps since the 19th century. Many of the luxurious rooms and suites are in décor of a patrician dwelling, which comprise elegant, lavishly furnished rooms to pamper with the latest technology to provide a luxurious home away from home.

The Kronenhof Spa stretching over 2,000 square metres is in a class by itself, offering a new dimension in relaxation and wellness for all those wanting to stay naturally healthy. The stunning views to the glaciers of Bernina, Val Roseg with its marvellous glacier and the magnificent Swiss stone pine and larch forests are simply breath-taking. The art of cuisine at the Grand Hotel Kronenhof is celebrated by an array of spectacular culinary experiences and a variety that is as exclusive as the unique mountains cape. Guests are welcome to dine in one of the most beautiful neo baroque Grand Restaurants in the Alps.

During the daytime, when sunlight slightly touches the baroque splendour of elaborate stucco, original ceiling paintings and the dark pine panels of the house, the magnificence of past epochs evoke the warm hospitality of bygone days. And when the sun sets, time seems to stand still. Soft piano music, the warm crackling of the fireplace and animated conversation underscore the hotel’s special, neo-baroque elegance.

The Grand Hotel Kronenhof is protected as a registered historic landmark and is situated in the heart of Pontresina at 1,800 metres above sea level, occupying a favoured place on a sun-drenched mountain terrace – only 6 kilometres away from St. Moritz. The Grand Hotel Kronenhof combines comfort and convenience of the 21st century with the charm and warm hospitality of bygone days. That is what makes this 5-star superior hotel, after its spectacular reopening in 2007, to one of the best luxury and wellness hotels in Switzerland.

In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server CHF 50 for a CHF 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.
