Grace Hotels reinforces polo connections with presence at Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz 2017
Luxury boutique hotel group, Grace Hotels, is proud to announce its support of the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz 2017, taking place from 27th – 29th January. This is the first time that Grace Hotels has supported the championships and follows the commencement of construction of Grace St. Moritz in the heart of the town overlooking the frozen Lake St. Moritz where the event takes place.
The new hotel, due to open in 2019, includes a rare opportunity for non-Swiss nationals to acquire freehold serviced apartments. Grace Hotels already has connections with the polo world through Grace Cafayate located on a sporting estate, including polo fields, in Northern Argentina, and La Dolfina Grace, currently under development alongside the world-famous La Dolfina Polo Club near Buenos Aires.
Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz, created in 1985, was the first-ever snow polo tournament and is the only ‘high goal’ polo tournament played on snow.
Located in a prime position on the Via Serlas and close to the railway station, Grace Hotels’ latest development has unrivalled views of Lake St. Moritz and will bring Grace Hotels’ hallmark elegance and simplicity to the Alps for the first time. The highly anticipated new hotel and apartments will transform the former La Margna hotel, and add a dramatic new annex, becoming a new landmark for the town.
The collection of 17 exclusive apartments, currently for sale off-plan with Knight Frank, represents a rare opportunity for non-Swiss nationals to purchase a home in this iconic, year-round resort. In addition to providing long-term investment prospects, the apartments generate revenue for buyers by becoming hotel guestrooms and suites when owners are not in residence. The apartments range from luxury studios to four bedroom apartments and a unique two bedroom penthouse. Owners will have full access to Grace St. Moritz hotel’s ultra-modern spa, swimming pool and fitness centre, three exquisite restaurants, martini and cigar bar, 24-hour concierge, kid’s club and ski shop.
To date, Grace St. Moritz Apartments are over 50 per cent sold, and continue to receive high levels of interest from a variety of nationalities. The development is currently undergoing a full-scale restoration and refurbishment and will be completed in 2019. Prices start from CHF740,000 (£613,585) for a studio and CHF9,900,000 (£8,022,376) for a penthouse.
