Casual luxury near St. Moritz

The power retreat with a mountain vibe

The Engadine, located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, is an area full of excitement – a place where powerful energy meets breathtaking beauty. Just like at Giardino Mountain in Champfèr near St. Moritz. As a power retreat, the five-star hotel is a place of retreat for demanding senses, a place to relax and enjoy yourself.

At Giardino Mountain, relaxation characterised by casual luxury and active challenges complement one another in an effortless fashion to provide a first-class mountain experience. The Mountain is calling!

Reboot for your body

We continuously improve our everyday life. With state-of-the-art technology, the latest fashion trends and quick relaxation when we’re short on time, we optimise our life as a matter of course. Unfortunately, we then often stop short of applying this to what is most important: ourselves. And it is precisely here that Giardino Coach and personal trainer Vladimir Zic begins. He demonstrates to customers the potential of their own body and mind, defines goals together with them and sets them on the path to also achieving these independently. On your marks, get set, me!

Enquiries and bookings can be made on site, via or on +41 800 333 313.

Events for guests and neighbors

Alpine yet urban

Opposites attract, they say. At Giardino Mountain, they even combine and bring the senses together. The hotel has retained its village charm from the outside. Inside, however, a cosmopolitan heart beats. Japan, India, even Asia are regularly culinary guests and invite the taste buds on trips. But also regional dishes should not be missing in the Meltingpot Champfèr. Have an overview of all events here.

The feel-good factor

Offers and packages

It’s the little things in life that make all the difference – those finishing touches that set the mood, put a smile on your face and bring joy to everyone around. And since making people happy is an essential component of Mediterranean hospitality, Giardino Mountain always has a few little surprises in store for its guests – even before their arrival. Any place wanting to be a real power retreat must of course also offer something for sports enthusiasts and families. For everybody else, there are these small feel-good tips.


The Summer Issue 2018

A picture is often worth more than a thousand words – but pictures don’t tell us the stories behind them or where the inspiration came from, and, above all, they don’t give anyone a chance to have their say. In the Giardino magazine, we give both pictures and words free rein to reveal the charm and character of what lies in store. This summer’s highlights:

I love Switzerland – Let Giardino show you what makes travelling worthwhile
Back to rhythm – True relaxation with Ayurveda
Cool pool – More than just a rectangular body of water
Behind the stars – What Ecco’s Rolf Fliegauf serves at home
And … action! – What’s so special about the Locarno Film Festival

Giardino hotels’ helicopter shuttles and tours

A cut above

Those who have always wanted to be a high-flyer get the opportunity to be just that with the air taxi offer. This is made possible by the Giardino hotels and Mountainflyers with the helicopter shuttle. Whether single- or twin-engined, an Airbus helicopter or an Agusta: the air taxi is arguably the fastest and most fascinating way to travel the Alps. From the airport to the hotel, from hotel to hotel, or as a spectacular means of embarking on a heli-skiing tour – travel times are cut by up to 75%, with prices from CHF 2,970. With state-of-the-art helicopters, almost 40 years of flying experience and its own flying school in Berne, Mountainflyers is an established, service-oriented and trustworthy provider. Fares are stated per flight excluding landing charges, handling fees, the overnight stay costs for the aircraft and crew, as well as any permit costs.
