Relaxation, pampering, and adventure merge in Switzerland’s uber-expensive winter playland.
Our Outdoor Adventure with Urs
I wish I could hug whoever came up with the idea for The Carlton St. Moritz to have an “outdoor butler”. Mr. Urs Wiederkehr is a true outback man and a traditional gentleman rolled into one. He can hold his own in the diamond-encrusted crowd and yet he spent four years of his life living in a little mountaintop cabin 100 meters above the nearest road (yes, that means he had to hike to get to and from it!) #amaaazing! #gladyoutrieditsoIdon’thaveto
Urs spent a day with us hiking through the mountains past several sparkling lakes and uber-charming mountain villages, all the while telling us about the local bird and animal species and the history of St. Moritz (he has, after all, lived in St. Moritz for over 30 years). Lucky for us, he brought a backpack full of gear I didn’t realize I needed but was super glad to have. The hike was just tough enough to keep me from getting bored, but not so tough that I got vertigo. It was an experience I’ll never forget.
I really agree. The mountain ranges here looks really stunning and quite a rare sight in a world full of skyscrapers.
This is the type of vacation people need when they’re really stressed and just want to get away from the city life.
The views here are really priceless. I was really stunned by how the mountains look and even the rivers are just so clean.
I’m stunned by the look of this place in St. Moritz. I’m going to show this to my hubby and ask if he wants to go here.
Been there to Carlton hotel a couple of years ago and it’s very worth the money. I had so much fun just by staying at the hotel, even if I didn’t want to participate in outdoor activities because I was just too cold and I wanted to be wrapped up in blankets. The place was really good and service was amazing, I was fine with ordering room service, feeling like a princess in the process. It wasn’t all that bad, I felt at home but just something more luxurious and better. But the Carlton in St. Moritz is the place to be.
Their menus look like it’s for an ancient princess.?
It actually sounded like she was so disappointed with the food.
The interior designers of most of the places here are really talented. Everything looks good in that hotel. The bed is just…. I dunno I’m speechless!
Hikes usually give me vertigo too. I thought that was just me, but that hike view is so beautiful and breathtaking. I haven’t been there but I’ve fallen in love with the place almost immediately.
100% going to book a flight here. I think it’s a really lovely place and whatever money you’re going to spend here will be worth it. It may be a lot of money but with all the positive and good reviews about this place, I think it’s really worth it and just enjoy the place as it is. I also think that vacations are good because it’s all about the experience. Money can’t buy happiness but this is definitely something that money can buy but leads to GREAT happiness! Put this on your bucketlist and tell yourself that it’s a once in a lifetime thing! ❤️
Whoa that spa is looking so nice and zen.?
