Grand Hotel Des Bains Kempinski St. Moritz Review

Arriving at Kempinski St. Moritz

St. Moritz is located in the Engadin Valley of Switzerland, and the town is easily accessible by train or car. It’s a 2.5-3 hour drive from both Zurich and Milan airports, making it a convenient choice for travelers coming from both Europe and beyond.

The train station is 2.5 km from the hotel, so you’d likely need to take a taxi or arrange for a hotel transfer. If you’re planning to rent a car, the hotel offers valet parking for your convenience for an extra fee.

We arrived with a car and we were immediately blown away by the grandeur of the hotel’s exterior. Right after arriving at the entrance, we were greeted by friendly staff who took care of our luggage and parked our car.

Stepping into the lobby, we were struck by its elegant and luxurious atmosphere. The whole hotel oozes an old-world charm and elegant luxury, combined with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay.

The check-in process was smooth and efficient, and the staff was more than happy to assist us with any questions we had. They even gave us a quick tour of the hotel’s facilities and showed us to our room.

Rooms & Suites

Grand Hotel Des Bains Kempinski St. Moritz offers a range of luxurious rooms and suites, all beautifully designed and furnished with the utmost attention to detail. They also have residences ranging from one to five bedrooms, perfect for families or groups.

Grand Deluxe Double Room

We stayed in a Grand Deluxe Double Room, which was spacious and beautifully decorated. The room featured a comfortable king-size bed with high-quality linens, a seating area with two armchairs and a coffee table, and a writing desk.

The large windows offered breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and lake and we also had a balcony to enjoy the fresh mountain air. Not every room has a balcony though, so be sure to request one if it’s a priority for you.

The marble bathroom was also impressive, featuring a large bathtub, a separate rain shower, and luxurious bath amenities. My favorite feature was the heated floors, a nice added touch to keep our feet warm after a day of skiing.
