The Badrutt’s Palace Hotel is a historic luxury hotel in St. Moritz, Switzerland. The hotel opened in 1896 and it has 157 rooms of which 37 are suites. The Badrutt’s Palace Hotel belong to Swiss Historic Hotels, Swiss Deluxe Hotels, and the Leading Hotels of the World. The majority shareholders are Hansjürg and Anikó Badrutt. The history of the hotel and the family Badrutt started in 1856, when Johannes Badrutt bought a small guesthouse in St. Moritz and started to rebuild it, to create the Hotel Engadiner Kulm, which is today known as the Kulm Hotel St.Moritz. He had built an artificial coasting slide and a curling ground for his guests. In 1864, the son of Casper Badrutt bought the Hotel Beau Rivage in St. Moritz and altered it to create the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel we see today. The official opening was in 1896 and two years later the son of Casper Badrutt, Hans Badrutt, took over the management.   read more…
