SWITZERLAND
BADRUTT’S PALACE
 
Ideally situated on a hill overlooking Lake St. Moritz, surrounded by tall pines and a mountain range, this year-around resort dating back to 1896 has received numerous additions and renovations over the years while maintaining its original old-world charm and style. The 209 elegant guest accommodations which include 29 suites have traditional furnishings with modern comforts.
 
In the main hotel building, the elegant main dining room and the Grill Room look out to the lake. Across the street is the cozy Chesa Veglia, a rustic converted farmhouse dating back to 1658 which services traditional Swiss fare. In the winter season, other dining venues include the Italian Trattoria, and K-Bar. Other facilities include three outdoor tennis courts, a small outdoor pool, a large indoor pool with an adjoining cave-like “kiddie” pool, a squash court, sauna, massage facility, a small gym, an indoor golf driving and putting range and an ice-skating rink. Arrangements can be made for windsurfing, sailing and fishing on the lake, horseback and pony rides, golf at an 18-hole course and shuttle service to ski runs, bobsledding runs and sleigh rides. There is also a children’s program.
 
Strong Points: An elegant, traditional resort with comfortable accommodations, fine service, gourmet cuisine and a nice range of sport facilities located in the center of the resort town of St. Moritz.
