In winter there is no better idea than spend a weekend on the mountains. Furthermore to combine the ski weekend with wellness is always a good idea. When I visited Arosa, I was a guest at the Arosa Kulm Hotel & Alpine Spa and I would like to tell you about my stay today.
About the hotel
The Arosa Kulm Hotel is a hotel with a long tradition, its origins dating back to 1882. In 2014 the Arosa Kulm Hotel was updated and now has 119 rooms with 207 beds and 140 employees.
In particular, the culinary offerings at the Arosa Kulm Hotel & Alpine Spa are also unique. The hotel’s own restaurants offer everything from Swiss to Italian and Thai cuisine. In addition, the hotel has a cozy bar and in the afternoon I can warmly recommend to enjoy some coffee and cake.
Our spacious suite shines in the glory of times past. We immediately felt at home in a spacious living room with a sofa, two comfortable armchairs and a dining table as well as a separate bedroom and two stylish bathrooms. The large balcony offers a panoramic view of the mountains of Arosa.
There is nothing better for a successful start into the day than a delicious breakfast. The generous breakfast buffet is complemented by delicacies prepared to order, such as pancakes and French toast.
On our first evening we enjoyed authentic alpine cuisine in the in-house restaurant Muntanella. Where chef Florian Mainzger and his team bring delicacies of the Alpine region to the table. The Muntanella convinced me in particular with high-quality local products.
Besides excellent tartar and perfectly fried filet, I could not deny myself this chocolaty dessert dream.
As an avowed lover of the Far Eastern cuisine, I was especially looking forward to the dinner at Ahaan Thai and it was worth it. If you are looking for authentic Thai cuisine in Arosa, you will certainly find it at the Ahaan Thai, because the head chef Tussanee Putkaewand and her team were brought directly from Bangkok to Arosa and you can taste it. The starters are delicious, especially the Green Papaya Salad is very appetizing. As main course an authentic Red Thai curry was not to be missed.
The Alpine Spa of the Aros Kulm Hotel offers relaxation on 1200 m2. Swimming in the pool, taking a sauna or enjoying the unique view of the mountains, I really enjoyed relaxing in the Spa during my stay – especially after skiing. In the Alpine Spa you will find a rock pool with waterfall, a whirlpool, a bubble lounger and massage jets, a paddling pool for toddlers, with rock bubbles and a small slide, mountain summer rain, sound & scent grotto as well as a solarium, a spa lounge, a Finnish sauna, a sanarium, a steam bath, a fog lane, an ice fountain and a relaxation area.
The landscape around the Arosa Kulm Hotel & Alpine Spa is not only ideal for skiing, but also for walking and discovering. In particular, you should pick up a bag of nuts at the reception desk and walk to the Squirrel Trail. With a lot of patience and a little bit of luck – the trusty rodents will surely take notice of you.
