Chesa Colani is nestled in the ancient village of Madulain (one of the most beautiful in Switzerland), the smallest in the Upper Engadine region with just 170 inhabitants. Not far from St. Moritz, it sits within a historic, decorated 17thcentury building that was built for a noble family and evolved into a hotel in 1990, run with love by Andrea and his family. You will be warmly welcomed by his team and immediately soothed by your surroundings—the peace of the mountains and the quiet of the village.Check availability
- Each of the 13 rooms and suites has its own character— we love the pine-clad Colani Suite with its soapstone bathroom, bathtub for post-slope soaks, and living space with views of the surrounding peaks and the Inn River.
Wellness & Spa
- After a day exploring the great Engadine Valley, whether on skis or foot, return to Chesa Colani for some spa time; a sauna, chromotherapy hammam, salt wall, and jacuzzi are all on tap to soothe any achy limbs.
Wine & Dine
- The Michelin-starred Stuva restaurant is a traditional, intimate space that is bonded to the land and inspired by nature’s rhythms—you can expect lichen, dandelion, and mushrooms to find their way into dishes in April, May, and September, alongside thyme and other Alpine herbs. Think venison in a salt and hay crust, with Cardarelli mushrooms, poached pear wine, and Madulain potatoes. * There is also a bistro for more casual evenings.
- Rates start at CHF 230 per night.
