St Moritz, Switzerland

Amazing Hotels gets a Christmas Special. Giles and Monica go to Switzerland and visit Kulm Hotel in St Moritz. The first hotel in this area of the Swiss Alps and gave birth to winter tourism over 150 years ago. A place where people spent time between Christmas and Easter.

Kulm is an expensive and exclusive hotel. Guests who have stayed here return time and time again, followed by their children and grandchildren. Even the staff in the hotel follow their parents with a job at the hotel.

As always Monica gets stuck in, Giles pretends for the camera. Although Giles has a poignant conversation with Silvio, head concierge at the hotel for 44 years and on the verge of retirement. There is a sadness in Silvio, he has been in the hotel for decades, met his wife here but has been widowed for the last 3 years.

The owners of the hotel wish to keep it classical but realise the need to modernise. They have bought in renowned architects to renovate parts of the hotels. New spa for example, a temporary submarine bar in the lake outside.

I was not blown away with the hotel, I think the hotel is good PR for the Kulm rather than be amazing. Still Monica felt she was in a Bond movie as she went to the mountain on a helicopter to cook a special dinner.
