Certainly there is no shortage of 5-star hotels in St. Moritz, but the Kulm is special. Firstly, its history founded by Johann Badrutts (he, of Badrutts Palace) the Kulm is one of the best-frequented hotels in the area. The walls of the Sunny Bar give witness to the great athletes, nobles and scions who have tried the Cresta Run with a display of marvelous vintage photos. The Dracula club is where the rich and famous of all nations gather to party like rock stars. The civilised Nito Restaurant has outstanding Japanese food - with 13 points Gault Millau. I travel often to Asia, so when I don't feel like those heavy cheesy Swiss meals, its definitely a good choice. Finally, walk along the long corridors to the Jazz bar, the Kindergarten, the Games room and you will quickly understand how a place of its grandeur has maintained its legendary status. In the main salon the curiously decorated columns and contemporary art give the space a fresh, modern feel missing in too many Swiss hotels, despite the exorbitant rates. I write occasionally for travel journals (on record, I was never hosted at the Kulm and they never paid for my stay or any PR), while the Kulm is very expensive if I could choose to stay in any hotel in St Moritz, this just might be it. I qualify that statement only because as a luxury travel journalist, there is no such thing as perfect. This comes close.
