Four star superior – the new Hotel AlpineRock in the Upper Engadin Region

A high-carat treasure in the mountains! 

The combination of a veritable pearl of the hospitality industry with a one-of-a-kind setting results in the creation of a marvellous alliance: Hotel AlpineRock. This four star superior property brings together ultra-modern interior design with priceless views and an unrivalled setting adjacent to the Corvatsch Base Station. Each of the 70 double rooms and junior suites has either a patio or private garden with views of the magnificent lake spotted landscapes of the Upper Engadin. Whether you choose to stay here in the winter, when you can ski or snowboard almost all the way to your own room; or during the fantastic summer season – the AlpineRock is a resort that stands for pure adventure and relaxation. After all, your holiday time is much too precious for you not to choose the very best.

Compelling style

The organic architectural style of Hotel AlpineRock is defined by the active combination of natural materials used on both, the exterior and the interior. The style offers clean lines, which are underscored by the premium quality materials used throughout. Sitting right at the foot of Corvatsch, Silvaplana’s famous mountain, the minimalistic structure of the property is surrounded and embraced by magnificent nature. Each and every morning the Engadin sun rise casts a different spotlight on the panorama of the mountain ranges.

Love for detail on the grand scale

The modern interior design is amplified by alpine woods, granite flooring and exquisite fabrics to welcome the guest to a place exuding a generous ambiance. The natural interplay of the light makes the boundaries between interior and exterior disappear. The 70 rooms and junior suites also present themselves as light-flooded spaces with amazing views way off into the distance. They also offer every little detail we have become so accustomed to having in our modern multimedia filled lives: iPod docking station, 32-inch flat screen TV with a choice of more than 50 TV channels and 10 radio stations as well as W-LAN connections come standard with every room. Nature and technology meld in harmonious spaces to create a soothing blend of activity and relaxation.

Perfectly tasteful

Harmony and diversity are evident everywhere: in the wide choices of dishes at the restaurants and in the countless wellness options for mind, body and soul.

Asiatic indulgences are available at the “Asia” Bistro, which serves a wide range of sushi and wok specialties as well as Thai soups and many other Asian delights, which are prepared à la minute. Whenever you are ready for a quick meal because you are hungry after a day full of activities, the rapid preparation of dishes makes this an excellent option. It is also the perfect place for children who frequently like dishes that are not quite as spicy or unusual!

Specialties from the Bündner Land and Italy are served in tapas-sized portions at restaurant “Stalla Veglia”. Diners get to enjoy compositions of premium regional products and the rustic hut flair of the restaurant, which is amplified by the natural stone flooring and the old wood panelling. Both complement the Upper Engadin’s romantic mountain setting in a most tasteful manner.

Amid the BOCA FINA’s captivating elegant ambiance, gourmets laud the creations of top chef Frank Seidensticker. Here, diners can look forward to being served purely natural delights and cross-over creations that will make even the most discriminating palate sing. Extra garnishes every guest will certainly feast on: breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains and romantic piano music. This is the place where indulgence reaches its most tasty climax.

Guests who linger in the Piano Lounge, which is also located on the roof of the hotel, will be able to relax in an intimate setting by the fire place and sparks are certain to fly! It’s a great place to chill out in the afternoons or for an elegant rendezvous in the evenings. You will always feel welcome here. The sophisticated cocktail menu, which is beyond compare in this region as well as the stunning views of the mountains, will turn your visit to the lounge into an unforgettable experience.

Glorious fresh baked goods as far as the eye can see – that’s what you’ll find at the hotel’s own bakery, PAUN FRESTG. The scent of warm rolls and specialty breads from all over Europe will get your day off to a perfect start. The bakery also offers plenty of choices for anyone with a sweet tooth. All items are also available to go – not just for hotel guests, but also for tourists and local shoppers.

Bring mind, body and spirit into harmony at the Spa and Wellness Centre

No matter what the everyday stressors of life have done to your body’s inner harmony, Hotel AlpineRock offers a solution that will restore your balance. Give yourself a taxing work out in the high-tech fitness room or enjoy total relaxation in the spacious sauna and steam room landscape of the OTIUM Spa. After a day on the slopes or a hike along the long stretches of trails through the Upper Engadin, the vitality pool will sooth your muscles and the essential oil aromas will calm your spirit. Indulge in a Rasul or aromatherapy hot bath for pure relaxation. The hotel’s Beauty Centre offers a variety of massage treatments as well as purifying wraps and baths based on alpine herbs. Beauty product lines designed for men and women complement the programme.

How close is in the heart of it all?

Hotel AlpineRock guests know the answer, because the property is nestled into the heart of the Upper Engadin’s mountains. No matter what the season, it offers new adventures out in nature paired with athletic challenges. At the time of its grand opening on 20 December 2010, the winter season at the award-winning, globally renowned skiers’ paradise Engadin St. Moritz was already well underway and winter sports enthusiasts now have access to 350 kilometres of slopes, a slew of events, as well as the Snow Night on the Corvatsch Mountain.

Other options range from cross country skiing, winter and snow shoe hikes to curling or romantic sleigh rides. Moreover, peaceful natural settings can be found around every bend.

During the warm season, the high valley of the Engadin is a great place for kite surfing, biking or gourmet hikes, swimming and sun bathing or climbing. What makes the Upper Engadin so fascinating is the perfect combination of calm and adventure.
