The Cresta Palace in Celerina was built in the early years of the Twentieth Century and retains much of its historical character. This is a grand hotel with large communal spaces and lounge areas but one that also offers modern and luxurious spa facilities. The management of the hotel has now passed on to the next generation and as part of a general rejuvenation programme is the creation of the 'Staziun da Basa' centre which helps guests get the most out of the wide range of winter (and summer) activities on offer in the Engadin area.
With over 300 sunshine days a year and a large, high altitude snow-sure slopes the ski area has much to offer. The main lift station and base of the home slopes are two minutes' walk from the hotel so for keen skiers it offers superb ski convenience. The ski and boot room has been remodelled and modernised to further enhance the ski experience for guests.
As well as the impressive main Grand Restaurant with its chandeliers and elegance there is the a la carte restaurant, Giacomo's. This more intimate dining experience serves Italian influenced Mediterranean cuisine (with more than a nod towards the fabled truffles of the area). The Art Nouveua winter lounge is a great place to relax in after a day on the mountain and in the afternoon tea with cakes is served here (included in the Bed & Breakfast rate).
As any grand hotel would there is a hotel bar and separate fumoir. The bar is the focal point of the hotel and its small and cosy 'spirits den' offers a wide range of temptations both from the cellar and the kitchen. How about a 'Cüpli' and a bite of Gravadlax? With exclusive fruit brandies, fine cognacs, sparkling cocktails, ice-cold beers and classic long drinks, your evening at the bar is guaranteed to be a success.
Ski pass offer 2018-2019: Purchase your lift pass through the hotel and benefit from a generous discount. A 6 day lift pass costs approximately £175 per person (a saving of approximately £100 over the large resorts of France).
A grand luxury hotel with old-world alpine charm and modern spa facilities.
