A Staple of Swiss Luxury Receives a $6.8 Million Renovation
Sybarites seeking delight in the winter wonderland of St. Moritz, Switzerland, are once again welcome to the newly renovated Kulm Hotel St. Moritz. An iconic haven for the well-heeled since 1856 (the first hotel in town), the 172-room Kulm focused the 7-month, $6.8 million transformation on its Neukulm Complex wing, transitioning 33 rooms into 26 more ample accommodations. Taking on the task was the French interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, who adorned each new room and suite in a palette of light blue and beige. Adding to the ambiance are noise-dampening floors, black stone-tiled bathrooms, and lacquered wall furnishings. A sense of well-being and balance is boosted by ceilings constructed of Swiss stone pine—a wood with a scent that is highly sought after by aromatherapists.
Further enhancements include those made to the hotel’s ski shop, where top-tier gear from ski manufacturer Head will be available to guests who prefer to travel light. And the ski storage facility now features built-in heating rods for helmets, gloves, and boots so that the Kulm Hotel’s warm hospitality carries over outside. (kulm.com)
