The Suvretta House began on April 22, 1911. Within the span of 18 months, it became a stately, grand hotel, overlooking Champfèr. The hotel’s grand opening was on December 16, 1912, with the snow arriving on that day to make the opening ceremony a folklore tale. With 250 rooms, 370 beds and 110 bathrooms – an incomparable luxury for the time – it was unlike anything the world had ever seen.

The word quickly spread regarding the sheer opulence of the new name in town. Guests arrived from all over the world to be pampered in every way. Throughout the decades, it has hosted celebrities from multiple avenues of work, including the likes of King Faruk of Egypt, Crown Prince Akihito, the Shah of Persia, Gregory Peck, Evita Perón, and many others.

The Suvretta House is cosy and comfortable all year round. However, while the summers boast picturesque scenery and plenty of things to do in the vicinity, the sheer mind-blowing aesthetic of the hotel surrounded in snow makes winter the best time to visit it.

The hotel’s winter season kicks off in December and lasts until April. In the winter, this 5-star luxury resort presents itself as the first address for unforgettable winter moments, being the only one in St. Moritz offering direct access to the superb Corviglia ski area.
