Carlton Hotel St Moritz, Switzerland

 The Carlton Hotel in St Moritz is without a doubt one of the most luxurious ski hotels in the world.

Perched on the hillside close to the town center, all parts of the hotel feature sensational views of the mountains and the lake. The Carlton Hotel has always been luxurious – when it was opened in 1913 it was already rated as a five-star hotel. In 2008, it was completely renovated and reopened with mostly suites and a few deluxe rooms.

The style of the Carlton could be called regal, and you feel like an absolute prince or princess when you're staying there. From the highly attentive and impeccable service to the sumptuous rooms with incredible views, you are treated like royalty. Every person arriving at the hotel is greeted by the general manager and that sets the tone for the rest of your stay.

The Carlton Hotel is huge so there's plenty of space for everyone to spread out. There are 60 suites in total. During the recent renovation they hired a Swiss interior designer, Carlo Rampazzi, who was very generous in application of color. Each of the suites has a general theme of color, imagine aquas, purples, blues, and oranges. The hotel rooms and suites range from a Deluxe Double room, which starts at 35 m2, and the suites go up to 65 m2. Each suite, regardless of is Junior, Deluxe, or Family, or even more grand like the Carlton penthouse, features a living space with couches. Many of the suites have walk-in wardrobe, perfect for those who never go on holiday without bringing everything.

The Carlton penthouse is easily one of the most amazing hotel rooms in the world, featuring three bedrooms, one with a huge walk-in bath and wardrobe, and incredible views of the lake. There are two terraces, a fireplace, a living room, working areas, and its own elevator entrance. The living area alone is 95 m2.

There are two restaurants, one of which has a Michelin starred chef. Da Vittorio is run by Italian brothers Enrico and Roberto Cerea. As a result, you'll get some very fine Italian cuisine based off their restaurant with the same name near Bergamo, which has three Michelin stars. The other restaurant called Romanoff serves fine authentic Swiss cuisine. There's also the spacious Carlton bar, with a fantastic sun-drenched terrace, where on a beautiful day you can sit back and enjoy the views, while having a selection of food and drink.

The Carlton Hotel has an excellent spa and wellness area, where you'll be pampered to your hearts content with steam baths, several saunas, hydro massage showers and an ice fountain. There's a relaxation area and sun terrace, a sports pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi, an indoor and outdoor pool, a fitness center with great equipment, and a massage spa area with six individual treatment rooms. The whole wellness area is 1200 m2, which expands over three different floors.

If you’re after the highest level of luxury in ritzy St Moritz, or in fact anywhere in the world, The Carlton Hotel is worth putting on your bucket list.
