If, like me, you take pleasure in an excellent meal on the slopes, then I would recommend La Marmite, situated in the top station on Corviglia side. This mountain restaurant is not in the most beautiful building, but it grantees the best views of the Engadine valley and it has an excellent menu that is by no means over priced. Or, if you’re looking for something with a bit of pizzazz, the lively, trendy addition to Corviglia’s mountain restaurants is El Paradiso. With its south-facing terrace, it is the ultimate suntrap if you fancy getting a tan. The restaurant has a beach vibe with an outside bar and palm trees, so if you do dose off you might just wake up and think you are in St Tropez.

Badrutts Palace Hotel

Badrutts Palace Hotel

The town is actually trendier in a Swiss German/Italian way than it is snobby. St Moritz is a favourite along with Cortina d’Amprezzo of the Milanese. It’s kind of like listening to Rammstein while walking down Via Montenapoleone. So, if you fancy a spot of shopping the streets are lined with boutiques stocking the latest designer brands, but if its après-ski you are after then the Roo Bar on the terrace in front of the Hauser Hotel is a great place to begin. To start your evening adventure in St Moritz why not be fabulous and dine at Nobu in the famous Badrutts Palace Hotel. Or, if you want something more laid back the Chesa Veglia serves the finest stone baked pizzas in the world. The Stubli Bar provides some upbeat live music where people tend to dance on the tables – Mosserwirt, St Anton style. But for a more decadent night, there is the King’s Club, an infamous haunt for the super chic.

If you don’t want to spend a fortune, but want be in the thick of the action then I would suggest staying at the Hauser. But if you are looking to experience definitive opulence there is the world famous Badrutts Palace, which is the ultimate alpine spa retreat, or why not try the Kulm Hotel, home of the St. Moritz Tobogganing Club. However, don’t just look at their online prices because you might be frightened away, give the hotel a call and bargain for an end of season deal.

(Travel to St Moritz: Fly into Zurich/Geneva. Transfer to the resort by hire car, taxi, scheduled bus or train.)
