We have been going to the Kulm for over 10 years now, most of the time over Christmas and New Year and recently also often in January.
It is a treat to return to the Kulm on every occasion.
Its position and location mean that it is at the higher end of the village with marvelous views of the Lake.
The accomodation remains in all respects some of the best which I have ever come across, whilst not making one feel one is in a palace or museum - whether it be defined in terms of the comfort of the beds, the decor and the layout of the rooms, the wardrobe capacity or the high quality of the bathrooms.
The kitchen continues to exceed itself and should you wish to alternate, there is plenty of choice during your stay, whether it be rustic Italian, Japanese, Chalet Swiss, High end Gourmet, or even the choice to take your half board at lunchtime at one of the mountain side restaurants.
In fact, I would dare to suggest that if you are fond of good food, there is no better ski resort in the world than St Moritz. If you doubt the veracity of this assertion, I dare you to come at the end of January for the Gourmet Festival!
As for day time pursuits, St Moritz isn't the cradle of winter sports for nothing.
For skiers, a shuttle bus will have you within 5 minutes at the bottom station of the Chantarella cog railway from which it is merely a 15 minute ride into the Corviglia ski region.
If dolce farniente is more up your street, then either proceed down to the Sunny Bar terrace or wander a little way outside the hotel grounds to the sun terrace at the Chesa al Parc where on a fine day, you can soak up the Engadine sun.
Should the weather disappoint, then a box full of temptation awaits you. As of 2012, the Kulm has just completely renovated its pool and spa area. Professional staff provide a wide range of treatments from the obligatory classic and sports massages attuned to sports enthusiasts to the cosmetic and frivolous treatments which only the mind can dream up!
On that count more generally, the staff are very approachable and willing more often than not to do the impossible. For the size of the establishment and with the occupancy rate the hotel captures at times, this can only be applauded in the profoundest way possible and for this the management needs by definition to be extended the most profound congratulations for instilling the degree of harmony amongst the staff which there is.
