Over the last six months, the legendary Kulm Hotel St. Moritz has undergone its largest ever room renovation, creating 26 generously proportioned rooms and suites in the wing of the property known as the Neukulm. This major refurbishment project has been overseen by the award-winning French interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, who has previously worked with other luxury brands such as Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts and The Peninsula Hotels.The Neukulm was completely stripped back during the renovation process, which started in April 2015 and finished in time for the start of the winter 2015/16 season, which kicked off on Friday 4 December. CHF7 million was spent reducing 33 rooms to just 26with larger living areas to provide guests with more comfort.
While the new rooms have a contemporary feel, tradition has not been forgotten. Swiss stone pine wood ceilings, very typical of the Engadine region, are to be found in every room and have the added bonus of helping to improve sleep: medical studies have shown stone pine wood lowers the heart rate and induces a deeper sleep.Other features include floor to ceiling lacquered wall units , natural black stone tiles in the bathrooms and beige or light blue colour ways. In order to reduce noise impact, all the rooms are carpeted.
The end result is newly-created rooms that provide the perfect synergy between grand hotel style and modern Alpine living. Somewhere that regional traditions and international expectations combine to create a quiet oasis in which guests can completely relax, as well as a luxurious and light interior, where – in keeping with the Kulm Hotel’s ethos – every comfort is met.
It is on this basis that the hotel’s ski room has been expanded and renovated: it is now four times larger than previously with bigger storage lockers (one assigned to each room) in which heated rods dry out gloves, boots and helmets to ensure that guests hit the slopes every morning feeling cosy and content. Additionally, an exclusive partnership with Head has been forged in the on-site ski shop that allows guests to enjoy the best equipment possible; the very latest skis, snowboards and boots are for rent directly at the hotel.
