Grand Hotel Kronenhof has a rich and interesting history, having first opened its doors in the first half of the 19th century as a guesthouse. However, the main part of the current building, which is a registered historical landmark, was built at the very end of the 19th century in Neo-Baroque style. The Kronenhof spa is certainly one of the hotel’s highlights and has been named “the best Alpine spa” (according to Tyler Brule writing in the FT, November 2009). Facilities include a 20m indoor infinity pool with counter-current system, a flotation pool with underwater music, a wide range of saunas and steam rooms, a luxurious private suite for couples to enjoy wraps and massages together, and – for the perfect final touch – a crackling log fire in the relaxation room.
Gourmet cuisine is also a specialty at the Grand Hotel Kronenhof. Awarded the title of GaultMillau Hotel of the Year in 2009, it has three restaurants (the formal Grand Restaurant in an elegant Neo-Baroque vaulted room, Gourmet Restaurant Kronenstübli awarded 15 GaultMillau Points serving Italian-Mediterranean cuisine and the informal rustic Le Pavillon for light lunches. In addition, the kids’ restaurant Rondelle guarantees a delightful dinner experience for the little guests: from pizzas and pastas to more healthy food options, all served under the supervision of our childminder. On top of that, the Grand Hotel Kronenhof is renowned for its extensive children’s activities and facilities also offering family experiences including a horse carriage ride into the breathtaking Roseg Valley and surrounding areas or e-bike tours in the region.
