Planning your winter holidays in Switzerland? St.Moritz, an alpine resort town in the Engadin, a valley in Switzerland, is one of the most international ski and snowsports location and perfect destination for family breaks. Tschuggen Hotel Group has its winter highlights at Carlton Hotel St. Moritz and at Tschuggen Grand Hotel.
Japanese culinary arts, top events and family fun: winter highlights at the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz! 11 December finds the Carlton Hotel ushering in the winter season. Amongst the forthcoming culinary high points are the hotel’s participation in the 2016 St. Moritz Gourmet Festival with Executive Chef Gero Porstein and Guest Chef Hiroki Yoshitake. Together with the exclusive Van Cleef & Arpels exhibition and VIP packages for the Snow Polo World Cup and White Turf events, any number of highlights have been lined up! And children up to the age of 11 can now stay free-of-charge when sharing their parents’ suite.
The 2016 St. Moritz Gourmet Festival is taking place between 25 and 29 January under the motto “Yokoso Nippon” (which translates as Welcome Japan). This series of events was launched in 1994, and this year’s edition spotlights star chefs from the Land of the Rising Sun. For its duration, the Carlton’s Executive Chef, Gero Porstein, will be joined by 35-tear-old Hiroki Yoshitake, who takes his culinary inspiration from the season and serves his dishes in the form of miniature scenic works of art – on crockery specially fashioned for the purpose. Diners participating in the festival’s traditional gourmet safari, which is held over three evenings, will be savoring a stunning dessert at the Carlton, while at the same time gaining exclusive insights into the hotel’s kitchen.
Van Cleef & Arpels, Snow Polo World Cup and White Turf
Premium quality jewellery will be on display between 20 December 2015 and 8 January 2016 at the Van Cleef & Arpels exhibition being held in the Empire Ballroom of the Carlton Hotel. Staff from the French jeweller will be in attendance, presenting exclusive gemstones worked into items of jewellery. The prestigious Snow Polo World Cup in St. Moritz, meanwhile, is where the top proponents of the sport meet the great and the good from the worlds of culture, business and politics. This season’s must-attend society and sporting event takes place between 29 and 31 January 2016. The Carlton Hotel’s privileged position offers unsurpassable views of the action on the frozen lake. The hotel is one of the event’s official hospitality sponsor and is offering its guests a VIP package: Polo Gold. Another spectacle not to be missed is the White Turf horse racing event, which takes place on snow on three Sundays in February (7, 14, 21). The Carlton’s White Turf VIP package affords guests the chance to follow the event at close quarters. Occurring at the same time at the Carlton Hotel’s stand is the traditional horseshoe-throwing competition.
