New Ski Hotel to Open in Switzerland's Engadin Valley

This winter, Nira Alpina, a glass-and-timber-built mountain escape, will open on Switzerland’s ski slopes. The hotel will be the only one in the Engadin Valley to offer guests a true ski-in, ski-out experience. With views over Lake Silvaplana, close to St. Moritz in the small hamlet of Surlej, the hotel looks like it will be ideal for young couples, families, ski fanatics and outdoor adventurers.

Nestled into the mountainside, with a private, glassed-in covered walkway leading straight to the adjacent Corvatsch cable car, guests have quick and easy access to the mountain peaks, letting them reach virgin powder snow before the crowds. Inside, guests can unwind at two restaurants serving local Swiss favorites as well as international cuisine using fresh, local ingredients. Puri’s food and beverage expertise is evident throughout the hotel’s offerings at the two restaurants, from classic Engadin-style dishes at Stalla Veglia restaurant, to bread and pastries, baked fresh daily at the in-house Bakery. Several chill-out areas and a stylish bar, with cigar lounge, outdoor terrace for starlit dining and central open fireplace, offer views of the surrounding valley.
