St. Moritz, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine
The most spectacular summer event in the Upper Engadine this year is the 8th edition of the St. Moritz Match Race where from August 31st to September 5th international champion skippers descend upon the renowned resort town to compete for the title of “King of the Mountains.” Badrutt’s Palace Hotel is a principal sponsor of the St. Moritz event, the Swiss stage of the World Match Racing Tour (WMRT)
The ten participating teams, experts on the seven seas, navigate the 1.6 km long and 0.6 km wide St. Moritz Lake. This demands excellent technical skill and speedy manoeuvrings from each crew, and provides onlookers with great spectator sport 6,000 feet above sea level. The additional challenge of the Maloja, a thermal wind that blows across the Engadine around midday, usually guarantees quality racing and a unique spectacle.
Badrutt’s Palace Hotel’s accommodation package, Escape the Heat, is a perfect complement to the Match Race: stay two nights, with an option to add extra nights, and enjoy daily breakfasts and dinners at Badrutt’s elegant restaurants. After a day in the Alpine air, relax at the new Palace Wellness with a swim, a massage or lounge at the swim-up bar as you survey St. Moritz Lake from above.
The Escape the Heat Package includes:
•Two nights’ accommodation in a superior room
•Two set dinners for two in the cozy Chesa Veglia or one of the Palace restaurants (each excluding beverages)
•Extensive buffet breakfast
•Sweet welcome gift from the patisserie
•Use of the refreshment bar, movie channels, LAN internet and newspaper compliments of the hotel
•Tickets for all mountain railways and cable-cars in St. Moritz and public transportation within St. Moritz and surrounding area
•Upgrade to next room category upon availability at time of check-in
