Nira Alpina

Silvaplana, Engadin, Switzerland

Nira Alpina, a 4* Superior hotel situated in the Swiss ski resort of St. Moritz, is connected to the Corvatsch cable car station via a private walkway. Within the hotel, winter or summer, you’ll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style - it's not a typical St. Moritz hotel. You’ll sense an ambiance that’s buzzy, bordering on Bohemian. The Swiss spa resort is for worldly, well-travelled individuals.
