alpine touch


time to live

Enjoy the summer

When all the swimming, paddling, surfing, sailing or kiting is done, you will sit at the shore of a lake, let your thoughts run free and forget about all your cares. After your hikes, climbing adventures, golf tournaments, jogging or training sessions, you will simply stretch out on a mountain meadow and watch the sky. Does anyone need anything more to be happy? Perhaps not. However, it is still good to know that more things await you at the Cresta Palace Hotel. A large spa area. A stylish Grand Restaurant. A “Ristorante” with Italian delicacies.


Only where you have been on foot have you really been - J.W. von Goethe

However, 580 kilometers of well-signposted hiking trails are companions through the Engadine - leisurely and wide to exposed trails in high alpine terrain. May we give you a tip?

Discover the Engadin and let us advise you. We probably don't know every meter yet either, but together we definitely have a good recommendation for you, from the easy mountain tour with a mountain lake and an unobstructed view of 4000m mountains to challenging tours with a real summit experience. If you want to go even higher we work with patented mountain guides.

Tesla Experience


A Tesla. A picnic basket. A drive into the blue.

Sounds good, doesn't it? We make it possible! For example, with a tour to S-Chanf, over the Albula Pass to Lake Palpuogna? Or over the Bernina Pass to the glacier mills in Cavaglia? In autumn a trip to the chestnuts in Soglio?

Bike In & Bike Out


We are a certified "Graubünden Bike Hotel". Bike In & Bike Out - hardly anyone has such an infrastructure, hardly anyone such trails - for the perfect flow. For mountain bikers there is nothing but highlights in the Engadine: Bike transport up to the 3,057 meter high Piz Nair and downhill without end, trail fun all the way to Puschlav and back by train, discovery tours through forests, to mountain lakes and glaciers. Already the many different signposted mountain bike routes have something to offer for everyone: Trail bikers find the flow, connoisseurs roll along patgific and explorers find new perspectives behind every new curve...

On the lake of Silvaplana

Lake Silvaplana is located at 1800m and offers best and constant wind conditions: Around noon the famous Maloja wind comes up. This natural phenomenon makes Silvaplana the hottest windsurfing spot in Switzerland - the Hawaii in the Alps - with an international surf and kite scene.

Constant wind and perfect launch and landing zones make Lake Silvaplana a hot spot for kiters and windsurfers. Best rental equipment and instructors are on site. Perfect your waterstart or get some tips for foilsurfing or wing surfing.


No matter whether windsurfing or kiting. On the lake of Silvaplana you perfect the personal skill. Courses are also offered for those switching to windsurfing and for beginners, for adults and for children.


In the early morning hours on the mirror-like lake to be on the move, mystical and relaxed - or for the inner balance yoga on the calm lake. Or Stand Up Paddling but rather for training, then in the afternoon, with wind and waves.

Stand Up Paddling

Activities in front of the house

With the golf courses Samedan, Zuoz/Madulain and Kulm, the Engadin offers nature-loving golfers challenging championship courses that could hardly be more different.

Engadin Golf now offers "family tee times": parents can play golf with their children daily from 4 p.m. (open end) in the midst of nature and naturalness, children even without a course license. Up to the age of 13, the little ones play free of charge - always accompanied by at least one adult.



Our hotel offers 2 tennis courts in a sunny location directly opposite the hotel. The artificial grass courts with quartz sand provide guaranteed playing pleasure and can be booked directly through our reception.

You prefer to train with a tennis coach? We will be happy to give you information.



The Engadine is perfect for a horseback ride in nature. High on horseback you ride on selected trails along streams and lakes through the larch and stone pine forests. Children and adults will find a paradise for horse lovers all year round at the Suot Spuondas farm in Pontresina: good-natured, friendly horses, ponies and donkeys for beginners to advanced riders. Plus a friendly team.
