In the alpine village of Champfèr, near St. Moritz, Giardino Mountain hoteliers Daniela and Philippe Frutiger have created a fusion of modern and traditional comfort through sensuous interior design and attentive service. Whether guests are being pampered with all-organic products in the hotel's spa or savoring a meal prepared in the two-Michelin-starred Restaurant, staying in this cozy mountain retreat is an experience that nourishes the soul.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Daniela and Philippe Frutiger have a deep connection to the Giardino Hotel Group that stretches back to their chance encounter at the group’s first property in Ascona in 1994. Since then, the Frutigers have transformed the Swiss brand to include three hotels and a beauty and cosmetics line. Philippe comes from a culinary background and was educated in hotel management in his homeland of Switzerland, while Daniela is a trained beautician and pharmacist who handles the spa operations and interior design.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Occupying a common ground between modernity and heritage, Giardino Mountain—housed in the former building of the Chesa Guardalej hotel—fuses local Engadine architecture with clean interior design. Thick parchment-colored external walls are vital for keeping out the Alpine elements, while recessed windows allow plenty of natural light to flood in. The hotel also dons the occasional work of sgraffito, a traditional wall-carving style that points to the hotel’s location. The interior sees a neutral color scheme, apart from the whitewashed lobby, and natural woods, as well as fuchsia and lime touches that add an edge of excitement to the hotel. Throughout the 78 bedrooms and suites, tactile fabrics and varying hues of wood give a welcoming warmth.
