Situated in the centre of Pontresina and at the heart of the holiday region Engadine in St. Moritz, Hotel Saratz is elegant yet cosy, contemporary yet charming – and its blend of the old and the new exudes one thing above all: atmosphere. The modern way of living merges with the Engadine hotel tradition, grandeur with design and nature with architecture. True values for a holiday adventure in a magnificent setting.
Hotel Saratz offers its guests a comprehensive wellness programme. It includes an indoor pool with whirlpool, spacious relaxation area, a classic wooden sauna, a steam bath made from natural stone, hydro massage showers, ice fountain, relaxation lounge and a gym overlooking valley Roseg and Roseg glacier. Massage and beauty treatments are also available to enhance the well being of our guests.
The Oriental Sarazenen Spa located in the old vaulted cellar is a modern interpretation of the hamam. Hotel Saratz also has the highest situated and largest outdoor pool in the Upper Engadine, the Bagnera, heated from June to October.
The main attraction beside the actual Sarazenen Spa, in the old vaulted cellar is the Rhassoul, is a bath based on oriental traditions. The body is massaged with three different kinds of healing mud – a more than 1000-year-old Oriental nurturing ritual where the skin gets stimulated by taking a steam bath and then gets purified with a healing mud.
A quiet room, flooded with natural light from panoramic windows, affords views of the large 35,000 square meter hotel park and the Roseg Glacier. An additional access to the hotel park has been created specifically for lovers of the fresh air.
The Oriental touch of the Sarazenen Spa is superbly suited to the Hotel Saratz: a glance into the past reveals the Saratz family’s connection to the Orient. Their roots go back to the Saracens, an Arab people who came from North Africa around 900 BC, travelling via Spain and over the Alps. An old bridge in today’s Pontresina was built by the Saracens and was called Pontem Sarasinam, which over the centuries has developed into today’s Romansh name of Puntraschigna, or Pontresina. Today, the Saratz family are regarded as the founders of the Engadine holiday resort.
Hotel Saratz is certified for its environmental management with ISO14001:2004 since July 2010 and has been certified by the Swiss Hotel Association as a “Green Living Hotel”.
