Chesa Salis St. Moritz / Switzerland

Chesa Salis

The Historic Hotel Chesa Salis is located at the eastern end of the village of Bever with its beautiful, historic old Engadine houses – not far from St.Moritz.

The magnificent patrician house with its large garden, built in 1590 and formerly owned by the noble family of Salis-Soglio, was rebuilt in 1880 by the famous architect Nicolaus Hartmann senior. He provided the exterior façade with the sgraffiti which is typical of the Engadine.

Today Chesa salis consists of 18 very individual rooms. Historic spaces entirely in Swiss stone pine, with Biedermeier stucco or painted panels, veranda rooms with cosy reading corners and views of the garden. Some rooms are also located under the roof with massive wooden beams. And in addition there are also a few Classic rooms.

The idea of the owner family De Giacomi, who – after a short break – are now running the hotel again themself, is to offer guests a cosy and above all authentic stay in the Engadine.

Culinary delights

Since summer 2023, Chesa Salis has been serving dinner exclusively for hotel guests from Wednesday to Sunday. In the afternoon (from 3 pm), there is coffee and cake, small snacks or aperitifs in the beautiful garden, in the cosy Salis Stube or in the lounge.

On Monday and Tuesday, guests can indulge themselves at the Spinas restaurant which is located in the idyllic Val Bever. This unique inn is beautifully accessible by foot (45 minute walk through the valley) or also by train (one stop).

For dinner you can also walk into the village of Bever or to one of the surrounding villages, the culinary offer in this famous region is truly great (but not cheap).

Ideal for

A cosy, quiet but stylish Engadine stay. The garden of the Chesa Salis boasts 6000 square metres. In summer, the mountain railway ticket for the entire stay is included in the room rate.
