This luxury hotel can claim its share of St. Moritz superlatives: it was the first hotel here (1856) and the first house to have electricity in all of Switzerland (1878), but modern comfort has come a long way as seen by its top-quality facilities like a nine-hole golf course, putting green, ice skating, and curling in winter. The Panorama spa features a saltwater grotto, indoor/outdoor pool, and top-notch fitness center (complete with inspired views), the breakfast
room is pure Wedgwood, and the newly redesigned à la carte restaurant (open only in winter) is a romantic vaulted space, with big arched windows and a menu of light French cuisine. In the main dining room, jacket and tie are a must, but more casual dining options are also available. Half board is normal, but just getting breakfast is possible outside the winter season. Bathrooms feature rain-forest showers, while rooms have satellite TV with over 200 channels. The attention to detail is top-notch: with pillow and soap menus (featuring alternate options promising deeper sleeps and relaxing aromas).
