Visiting Switzerland will have a new allure this year with the opening of the new GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ, bringing the winning chemistry of modern luxury and classic glamour to St Moritz. The launch of GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ sees the rebirth of a unique historical building brought back to life through the restoration of The “La Margna”. The “La Margna“ was built at the beginning of the 20th Century in the Art Nouveau style, characteristic of the Engadin, and it is one of St Moritz‘s landmarks, not only because of its spectacular location and panoramic view of Lake St Moritz but because of historic elegance and charm. The GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ combines the glamorous past of St. Moritz with the demands of the modern and cosmopolitan society of today. GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ sees the loving renovation of a historic building as well as the creation of the new adjacent building, creating the first luxurious boutique hotel in St. Moritz.
The London-based architectural firm Divercity Architects was engaged in the design implementation to bring an individual perspective to traditional Engadin architectural design. Construction work on GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ is in full swing for a glittering opening in August 2023, when the summer season will kick off with A Legend Reborn. GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ will offer a new place-to-be for cosmopolitans and locals alike 365 days a year where Lean-Luxury meets Well-Staying.
The rooms and suites will captivate guests with a progressive design which exudes a calm and serene sense of wellbeing. With 74 rooms and suites, the accommodation is split between two unique wings; the renovated La Margna Wing and the new Grace Wing. The lavishly restored historic La Margna Wing, which retains its original Art Nouveau elements, bears witness to the original spirit of winter tourism and the flair of the world-famous destination of St Moritz. Most of the 47 rooms and suites have panoramic views over the lake and the unparalleled mountain vistas beyond. The Grace Wing forms an exciting architectural contrast with its purist appearance. The 27 spacious rooms and suites can be individually connected and configured, offering additional comfort with views over the lake and mountain landscape. On the top floor, the unique Grace Penthouse awaits guests with a private roof terrace and its own Jacuzzi, the ultimate setting for bespoke secluded luxury.
General Manager David Frei and his team will welcome guests not only to world-class accommodation but also to a meeting place and culinary hotspot for travellers and locals alike. The GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ stands for enjoyment and entertainment, without compromise. In the restaurants, cafés, lounges and signature bar, culinary diversity and experiential gastronomy will be guaranteed. Whether vegetarian or meat, pop-up or fine dining, enjoyment is redefined here with a delightful selection of food and drink 365 days a year for almost 24 hours a day!
The View will serve Mediterranean dishes while The Stack will offer the finest Brasserie experiences. The Living Room encompasses a chill-out zone with an open fireplace, plus on-site will be a Smoker’s Lounge, Terrace, and Spa Lounge. The pinnacle of the food and beverage offerings at the hotel is the already award-winning N°5 – The Bar. The N°5 – The Bar is the heart of the hotel and sets the pulse for the whole vibe of this boutique hotel. This is where global nomad meets local, where upscale bar ambience and lightness form a trendy symbiosis to become a hip hotspot. Bar culture is reinterpreted and celebrated in the impressive setting of listed art nouveau walls paired with exclusive interiors. Whether it’s live music, temporary dance floor, cocktail classics or newcomer spirits, the message is: Lean back & Grace.
Finally, no luxury boutique hotel would be complete without a world-class Spa, and GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ is no exception. Setting new standards, not only because of its dimensions, the Grace Spa will present an Avant-garde spa area with approximately 700 sqm that invites guests to relax and recharge amid a breath-taking natural backdrop. With its most modern comforts and based on its unique philosophy, the new GRACE SPA is set to be a wellness oasis as well as a #selftreat hotspot par excellence in the Upper Engadin. With a 20m pool, Vitaly Pool, two saunas, a steam bath, wellness showers, exclusive treatment rooms, a private SPA Suite and a SPA Lounge with healthy drinks and food menu this haven of tranquility will ensure the perfect Grace Being is achieved by all guests.
GRACE LA MARGNA ST MORITZ, a legend reborn, opens this Summer 2023. A new place to be for cosmopolitans and locals awaits in the glorious backdrop of St. Moritz, Switzerland. Are you ready to Grace?
