Badrutt’s Palace Hotel will be transformed into a rococo palace this New Year’s Eve, 31st December 2011. Bejewelled and sparkling, and decorated with the theme of “Le Reve du Palace”, the hotel will be thronging with New Year’s guests from around the world – many of whom book a year in advance to celebrate on this special night. As well as live bands, artists dressed in costumes wander the Palace to represent the night’s theme.  Dinner is served in the hotel itself and in the rustic Chesa Veglia, a traditional farmhouse built in 1658, where guests can choose between three restaurants.

Also, the 19th St Moritz Gourmet Festival, taking place 30th January to 3rd February 2012, is always a high point at Badrutt’s Palace. For a week, ten Michelen-starred chefs descend on St Moritz to wow guests with a cornucopia of culinary events. French Chef Regis Marcon, who owns Régis et Jaques Marcon in Saint-Bonnet-le-Froid in France, will dazzle guests with a five-course menu or an à la carte dinner in Le Restaurant.

Finally, Badrutt’s Palace will also play host to the Funky Kitchen Party, which kicks off at 10.30pm on 1st February 2012, in the Palace kitchen and in Le Bistro. Guests mingle around steaming saucepans and sizzling frying pans, savouring each dish as it is prepared – accompanied by an appropriate champagne, wine or spirit – while chefs do their magic and prepare exquisite dishes all evening long.
