50 MILLION SWISS FRANC UPGRADE BRINGS MORE WELLBEING TO BADRUTT’S PALACE HOTEL
The first phase of Badrutt’s Palace Hotel’s wellness renovation will be completed by August 2009. The enhancement of the wellness area is part of a three-stage upgrade for Badrutt’s Palace Hotel from 2008 to 2010 with a total investment of close to 50 million Swiss Francs.
Following an upgrade to the oval pool in summer 2008, the Wet Zone now offers guests an ice room and a mist room, in addition to two saunas of different temperatures and a tropical rainforest shower. The renovated wellness area promises relaxation for mind, body and soul.
The next phases will see a new restaurant in the spa, treatment rooms, fitness centre, changing rooms and the Kids’ Club renovated by summer 2010.
In charge of the wellness area’s renovation is wellness advisor Martha Wiedemann. “It is important to me that the beautiful surroundings of the Engadine valley flow into every part of the wellness area. Local purchases, plenty of natural light and local building materials characterize the look of the renovation,” says Martha Wiedemann. In this vein the hotel has returned to using white spruce, a local Grisons evergreen, for the wood panelling. The granite used originates from the quarry on the San Bernadino Pass located not far from St. Moritz.
During the summer season massages, fitness, changing rooms and the Kids’ Club are offered in alternative spaces, until the wellness renovation work is complete. The outdoor and indoor pools plus the tennis courts are highlights for guests, and will be open throughout the summer.
Badrutt’s Palace Hotel is a celebration of style, sports, cuisine and fashion, with discreet service and traditional elegance evoking an atmosphere of pampered luxury for all.
