The Nira Alpina hotel is located close to St. Moritz in the heart of the Alps, in one of the highest inhabited valleys in Europe surrounding Lake Silvaplana. The design and lifestyle hotel at the foot of the Corvatsch is the ideal place for guests travelling the world independently. In winter, it offers pure skiing pleasure right on the hotel’s doorstep and in summer, mountain hiking and biking with a “starting house” at an altitude of 1,870m.
Each of the 70 rooms and suites has a large balcony or terrace, along with panoramic windows with a view across the turquoise blue lake and the Engadine mountain range. Guests can enjoy the different types of cuisine served at the Stars restaurant and be pampered at the Shanti Spa by Pure Altitude with typical alpine health and beauty treatments. You can look forward to receiving attentive, friendly and charming service.
Executive Chef Janko Glotz
Janko Glotz is already taking over the second winter season as an experienced chef de cuisine at the Nira Alpina. His approach is a perfect fit with the symbiosis of local traditions and cosmopolitan, casual lifestyle, which makes the hotel, nestled in a fantastic location directly at the foot of the Corvatsch in Silvaplana-Surlej, so popular with its guests. The 48-year-old's repertoire includes exciting alpine dishes and refined international classics in equal measure. Even the eyes of the guests sparkle as they enjoy his creations, garnished with the dreamlike view from the à la carte panorama restaurant Stars. His dishes, inspired by the beautiful surroundings, are characterised by the flavoursome freshness, purity, and intensity of the regional ingredients, sourced in the main directly from the Engadine.
Glotz completed his culinary training in the Black Forest. Professional stints in Michelin-starred and Gault-Millau restaurants followed, both in Germany and various Swiss alpine regions.
