The year was 1911. Hotel pioneer Anton Sebastian Bon had long been thinking of building a grand hotel with views of the lakes Champfèr and Silvaplana on the Chasellas Plateau, not far from St. Moritz. The time had come to carry out his dream. The foundations were laid on 22 April 1911 and over the following year and a half a palace-like, stately building destined to achieve worldwide fame was erected on this beautiful spot - Suvretta House was born. 1912: The hotel was inaugurated on 21 December 1912 with great pomp and circumstance. Anton Sebastian Bon's dream had become reality.

Discover the hotel by yourself. Suvretta House moves with the times. Tradition has a future. Six generations of hoteliers have managed Suvretta House during the nearly one hundred years of its history; and each has left its imprint on the exclusive house. The hotel has undergone various phases of regeneration dictated by the changing requirements of its demanding cosmopolitan guests. The integration of an unrivalled wellness paradise was one milestone, as was the creation of the ConBrio banqueting complex or the total renovation of the guest rooms. Constant change does not exclude tradition. Suvretta House will always be a place that upholds the values of hospitality.?
