Klum Hotel St. Moritzis has announced that it has been honored with Switzerland’s 2018 Hotel of the Year by Gault & Millau. The luxury hotel was awarded the title by Sascha Moeri, CEO of Carl F. Bucherer, and Urs Heller, chief editor of Gault & Millau Switzerland.
Gault & Millau was founded in 1969 by two French restaurant critics and is among the most influential restaurant guides in the world. When making its annual award selection, it looks specifically at cuisine offered at the hotels.
This winter season, guest chefs are scheduled to cook at the hotel, including Germany’s two-starred Michelin chef Tim Raue, who specializes in Asian-inspired food. Chef Raue will be at the K, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant.
Recently appointed head chef, Mauro Taufer oversees Kulm Hotel’s multiple culinary concepts, including Grand Restaurant, the Italian Pizzeria, Sunny Bar, Chesa al Parc, and the newly-opened Kulm Country Club.
The hotel’s Dine Around program lets guests dine at its sister property, Grand Hotel Kronenhof, giving them three more restaurants to choose from.
In the past decade, the Kulm Hotel underwent multiple renovations, including the $12.5 million Kulm Spa St. Moritz refurbishment, the opening of the Lord Norman Foster designed Kulm Country Club and the refurbishment of the NeuKulm building with interiors by internationally renowned designer Pierre-Yves Rochon.
The Kulm Hotel opened in 1856 is both a popular summer spa location and winter holiday getaway. The Leading Hotels of the World member offers 172 rooms, six restaurants, spa with 20 meter indoor pool with underwater music, gym, saunas, and six conference rooms.
