Christmas came early for both Grand Hotel Kronenhof, Pontresina (www.kronenhof.com) and The Cambrian Adelboden (www.thecambrianadelboden.com), with both properties gaining industry recognition in the last couple of weeks.
Kronenstübli, Grand Hotel Kronenhof’s charming and historic wood-panelled restaurant, was awarded its first Michelin star, making the hotel a “must go to” destination for those wishing to sample some of today’s very best Swiss cuisine.
Meanwhile, The Cambrian won the inaugural “Best International Spa with a View “award from The Spa Traveller (www.thespatraveller.com), thanks to its awe-inspiring panoramic Alpine vistas. Earlier in the year, The Cambrian’s outdoor pool, part of the spa, made TripAdvisor’s list of “Ten Amazing Hotel Pools” with one reviewer declaring that “The outdoor heated infinity pool is worth the trip alone”. In May 2010,
The Times also included The Cambrian pool in a list of “The world’s 20 best hotel pools”, writing, “The outdoor pool here has a bubbling massage bed, but best of all is the view of the mountains”. Not one to be missed.
