Dear Friends of the Cresta Palace The Engadine mountain summer is here, refreshing and rejuvenating. It stretches from the incomparable spring splendour of alpine flowers to the Indian Summer in autumn which brings utter delight with its array of colours and its unique light. This display of nature, second to none, offers a lot of variety and the perfect backdrop for active relaxation with hiking, golf, yoga, re-charging your batteries at the shores of a mystical mountain lake or hanging out leisurely in an idyllic hotel park. A number of exclusive events, in the area of sports, lifestyle or culture, bring real variety to the summer. 112 years of hospitality, a lot of Art Nouveau charm, two restaurants, a sun terrace, cake buffet and minibar are included in our services. Tennis courts and the historic village centre of Celerina are directly at our hotel doorstep and the Lej da Staz, perfect for a daily dip in its clear waters, is the distance of an easy walk away.
Culinary highlights, created in the Cresta Palace kitchen and tempting wellness and treatment programmes from the «vita pura» Spa guarantee your recreation and enjoyment. A word of recommendation: take your time for the mountain summer – it is well worth it! From two nights on the use of all mountain railways and public transport in the Upper Engadine is free, including the transport of your bike and your four-legged friend, and of course fresh mountain spring water and invigorating alpine air. We are happy to recommend our mountain summer packages to you! See you soon, best wishes from Celerina
