ST. MORITZ, July 2015 Badrutt’s Palace Hotel offers the key to regaining a natural balance and harmony, enhancing a person’s state of wellbeing. Palace Wellness draws on the restorative powers of the Swiss mountain flora and surrounding Engadin landscape, which has been a tradition since the 17th century. It taps into the most current products and trends in beauty and systems to bring guests an enhanced state of wellbeing.

The key to wellness is re-filling what is lacking at the same time as reducing what is in excess. This fine-tuned balance leads to enhanced wellbeing. At Badrutt’s Palace Hotel it is more a case of harnessing the natural energy and beneficial qualities of what lies beyond the hotel, in its immediate surroundings - the nature of the Engadin valley. Nature and the great outdoors can offer peace & quiet as well as the perfect place for fortifying, life-giving sporting activities.

Martha Wiedemann, Wellness Advisor states, “Palace Wellness successfully marries simplicity and the ‘wow’ factor, drawing on the surrounding nature using wood and stone from the region. An extensive treatment menu is there to service the entire body as well as the mind – a complete service from head to toe.” Bringing together wood, granite and flora, calming and inspiring design throughout, organic and natural products, purifying clean mountain air and liberating wide open views and ample sunlight, Palace Wellness is unique in its combination of all these elements.

Each of the 10 treatment rooms bears the botanical name of a particular local Engadin Alpine flower. The Alpine Garden at the heart of the centre is the dramatic and inspirational focal point. Engadin plants and stones act as a reminder of where you are and it floods the space with fresh air, sunlight and Alpine scents. The flowers hold a greater significance – they are not only a life force from nature with Swiss mountain flora having long been used in medicinal healing, they also hold strong symbolism and magical qualities in local legends and folklore. The cover of a journal by Caspar Badrutt illustrated with floral designs, found in the hotel archive, was the inspiration for using the floral names and carvings in the wooden ceilings of the treatment rooms.

In the local language, Engadin means the garden of the river Inn. The flowers referred to in ›Palace Wellness‹ are Iris, Primula, Veronica (Alpine speedwort), Paradisea (St. Bruno’s Lily), Rosa, Nigritella (ground orchid), Soldanella (Mountain Tassel) and Gentiana. Even the wellness restaurant links back to the Engadin region – ›La Diala‹ is the word for mountain fairy in the local language.

Cutting edge nature-based products have been selected: Eva J products use extracts of flowers and plants, precious essential oils, pure vitamins, organic nourishing and hydrating agents adapt to individual requirements to prevent aging and to re-activate the natural skin repair process. Alpeor products present a unique alternative in the field of anti-aging. They are formulated with botanical ingredients using the potency of Swiss Alpine plants for beautifully youthful-looking skin.
