Travel: St Moritz Suvretta House
We stayed at Suvretta House earlier this year in January for the St Moritz Gourmet Festival that takes place every winter, and concluded with a fabulous party at Badrutt Palace.
St Moritz is a curious little place that pretty much comes alive for two seasons – the winter and the summer. It’s also the city where the first electric lamp came on in Switzerland.
The city is a playground for the rich and famous and exudes old world luxury in the hospitality industry and the perfect backdrop for Wes Anderson movie sets.
I love Europe in the winter despite how my body was made for tropical weather. I love how when a place is blanketed in snow, it’s so quiet and magical. I loved everything about Suvretta House, especially being picked up in the ex-miliary bus converted into the hotel’s pick up.
We were in St Moritz for the annual Gourmet Festival that takes place every January. It’s a skiing hotspot for the rich and famous over the winter holidays.
I’ve tried taking ski classes in Slovakia in 2005 and I concluded that I am hopeless moving in the snow, in addition to my poor sense of balance, I take the glüwein and reading a book by the fireplace any day over the slopes.
