Hotel Giardino, Champfer, Swiss Alps.
Hinzer Architecktur AG.
The hotel is located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, in the village of Champfer at a five minute walk to St Moritz and compromises an ideal opportunity to discover a real-life Alpine wonderland. The re-styled mountain haven offers casual luxury at more than two thousand metres above sea level, a five-star hotel as a place of retreat for demanding senses. Each of hotel rooms is characterized by an effortless fashion to provide a first-class mountain experience, a place where powerful energy meets breath taking beauty. The use of selected natural materials, some directly from the area, such as the natural stone and the wooden floorings treat hotel guests with a unique experience.
The Giardino Mountain hotel has been named recently Europe´s most beautiful mountain hotel. The latest renovation preserves the site´s history, respectfully exalting it with contemporary flair. Traditional on the outside, cosmopolitan on the inside. A perfect mix of contrasts. In the 78 rooms and suites, Alpine chic meets Mediterranean nonchalance. A five star design hotel that offers its guests all the space they need to take a step back from everyday life and embark on fantastic experiences.
The interior of the hotel was redesigned by Swiss studio Bofor Design. During the renovation, the basic historical structure of the buildings was successfully retained, by means of for example the characterful local natural stone in combination with beautiful wooden floors of Mafi, elegant Italian fabrics from Designers Guild, high quality decorative elements and designer objects from Van Egmond, VG Newtrend and Moodi. Following the strict guidelines for interior design for all Group hotels, the elegant outdoor furniture for example is from the renowned Dedon brand. Daniela and Philippe Frutiger, CEO´s of the Giardino Hotel Group clearly state that key values of the luxury hotel group are: quality in living style, sustainability and premium service levels, and these are all very present at the Giardino Mountain Hotel. The new jewel of the Hotel Group has evolved into a power retreat offering casual luxury. Its Zeitgeist can be felt with every step you take, in the nonchalant bar, the multiple award winning restaurants and of course in the rooms and suites.
As an example of the excellent selection of premium and high quality materials, we can highlight the striking bath tubs from the Victoria + Albert brand that are installed in the impressive Junior Suites and double rooms of the hotel. The IOS bath tub model is impressively spacious, with a small footprint and rimless bath design, creating a beautiful and unique bathing concept merged into the sleeping space of the hotel room, exuding the versatility of free standing bath tubs, boldly showcased with wooden surroundings, to evoke an unexperienced intimate feel. The IOS bathtub is positioned inside the room in front of the windows overviewing the rugged yet harmonious beauty of the Alpine region, and turns ION into the perfect declaration of refined luxury.
The Giardino Junior suites effortlessly combine modern luxury and Alpine nonchalance. The suites also come with the Toulouse free standing bath tub from Victoria + Albert, positioned in the main area of the sleeping room, exuding chic and cosy charm. The wood from which the exquisite panels are made, comes directly from the region for a wonderfully vibrant and natural sensation. The Toulouse series is a firm contemporary design statement presenting a luxurious centrepiece for both traditional and modern designed bathroom spaces. The Toulouse bath is a deep, double ended free standing bateau tub for an ultimate relaxation in bathing for one or two persons.
