1. Grand Hotel Kronenhof, Pontresina 

Address: Via Maistra 130, 7504 Pontresina

Best for: Epic mountain vistas

Grand Hotel Kronenhof in Switzerland

Nestled in the charming village of Pontresina, the Grand Hotel Kronenhof stands out with its blend of grandeur and tranquillity.

This historic hotel, dating back to 1848, boasts breathtaking panoramas of the Swiss Alps – and I love that the hotel has been designed in a way that maximises these vistas.

The hotel’s spa facilities are a true highlight, with the real show-stopper being the generously proportioned pool that’s framed by jaw-dropping views due to the huge windows.

There is also a range of saunas, and steam baths, complemented by holistic treatments that promise rejuvenation. I had the most incredible massage here and I’m sure the therapist had magic hands!

After a day at the spa, the hotel offers several exceptional dining options. My personal favourite is the cosy chalet-style Kronenstübli.

I highly recommend the ‘Canard à la Presse’ – trust me when I say that you’ll be in for a real treat!
