The legendary Hotel Saratz in Pontresina is a place of contrasts. In an inspiring ambiance, modern lifestyle encounters fin-de-siècle grandezza and four-star superior quality, all celebrated in a surprisingly casual way. The establishment that is set in a lavish parc, is characterized by the elegance of art nouveau and the outstanding hospitality of the hosts.
In the modern “Ela Tuff” building there are 63 spacious rooms, each with magnificent view, whereas in the 140-year-old “Chesa Nouva” there are 30 charming junior suites, as well as family and comfort rooms. The wellness area entices with its indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam bath, massage and beauty treatments, as well as an oriental “Sarazen bath”, a new take on the traditional hammam. At Hotel Saratz, gourmets are spoilt with the finest delicacies served in two restaurants, namely the classical art nouveau dining hall and the lively, trendy restaurant “Pitschna Scena”. Culinary diversity is simply part of Hotel Saratz.
