There are three noteworthy Kempinski ski hotels all in Europe. If these locations don’t work for you, there are five best Four Seasons Ski hotels, more than ten best Marriott ski hotels which include three brilliant Ritz-Carlton ski hotels. There are also more than ten Hyatt ski hotels.
We have also reviewed the best ski hotels in Europe separately in case those outlined below don’t work for you. The best ski hotels in the Alps tend to be family-owned and not part of a big brand. This list includes two of our favorite ski hotels in the world.
Here are the best Kempinski ski hotels. All are fantastic, and if you want free breakfast for two, a room upgrade (subject to availability), resort credit, and more don’t forget to book via our luxury travel concierge.
1. Grand Hotel Des Bains Kempinski St. Moritz
Grand Hotel Des Bains Kempinski St. Moritz is a stunning ski hotel set on the edge of the iconic ski town of St. Moritz. It’s perfectly positioned for downhill skiing with a main ski lift on the border of the gardens that front the hotel, less than a 5-minute walk away. It is also steps away from the network of cross-country ski tracks that weave down the valley that caresses this pretty town.
This Kempinski has been beautifully refurbished and offers an impressive foyer, superb and modern bar areas with views looking out over the mountains, and a number of restaurants, including an intimate, highly acclaimed Michelin-starred eatery, a charismatic and tasty Italian and the main restaurant which is also where you take your breakfast, which is set in an enormous but beautiful and airy dining room. The breakfast here, by the way, is the best in St. Moritz.
Rooms are undergoing refurbishment as I write this and will be beautifully stylish; pick one facing the front of the hotel for the best views. There is also a large spa in this vast hotel with a pool, large spa and a cryotherapy room, which freezes you briefly to combat aging.
This hotel is brilliantly located and, we think, the best Kempinski ski hotel in the world.
