Giardino Mountain

St Moritz, Switzerland

Dating back to 1913, the building is a former eighteenth-century girls’ boarding school and retains its typical Swiss architecture and traditional Engadine paintwork. Now, it is known as one of Europe’s most beautiful mountain hotels with contemporary style. This five-star Swiss retreat is located in the picturesque village of Champfèr, near St. Moritz, overlooking the breathtaking panorama of the Upper Engadine and Lake Silvaplana – the ultimate winter wonderland.

In the 78 rooms and suites, Alpine chic meets Mediterranean nonchalance. Each and every room, with sizes between 18 and 60 m², is boldly decorated with Italian fabrics and designer objects. Due to the hotel’s historical structure, no two rooms are the same. Each room also has a unique theme related to the Upper Engadine landscape.   |   Email Enquiry   |   Location Map

Meetings & events

Work and leisure time don’t usually go hand in hand. They move at different paces, have different objectives and most notably place different demands on us. In the right conditions, however, a surprisingly harmonious relationship can be struck up between the two – all you need is a Giardino hotel, a corporate team and the Ticino sunshine, and you will be sure to have an experience that brings results. This means team members are happily productive and relaxed enough to be creative and can enjoy the modern facilities to take a moment to de-stress. It’s great for your team and even better for your profit margins.

Ecco St. Moritz

The Ecco restaurants in Ascona and St. Moritz already have a reputation for unique culinary virtuosity blended with a purist approach to taste – and both have two Michelin stars to prove it. With his food concept, Ecco founder Rolf Fliegauf artfully combines the natural flavours of seasonal ingredients to create the unmistakable Ecco cuisine: distinctive, intense, unexpected. Ecco!


Traditional Engadine restaurant with rustic wooden panels and corner benches, true archetypes of the Alpine world, located in the entrance area of the historical part of the Giardino Mountain building. At lunchtime and in the evening, hearty Graubünden specialities are served here. The kitchen team procures the products used to prepare these dishes from local suppliers. For dessert, locals recommend the ‘legendary’ nut cake served in a glass.
