The Kulm Hotel St. Moritz and The Chedi Andermatt have linked up with the Glacier Express to offer a unique Luxury Golf Express package that combines stays in two of Switzerland’s most luxurious hotels, golf in glorious Alpine settings and a spectacular train ride between the two glamorous mountain resorts.
Whilst staying at the legendary Kulm Hotel St. Moritz for two nights on a half -board basis, golfers will enjoy 18 holes at Switzerland’s oldest golf course, Samedan, set in classic open parkland, and the nearby course at Zuoz with its undulating tree-lined fairways, as well as a round on the 9-hole Kulm Golf St. Moritz set within the hotel’s extensive grounds, which was the first short course laid out in Switzerland and has spectacular views over Lake St. Moritz. Guests will also have complimentary access to the Kulm Spa St. Moritz for the duration of their stay and enjoy a 50-minute massage to ease any golfing aches and pains.
On departure, Luxury Golf Express guests embark on a 4½ hour railway journey on the Glacier Express crossing the spectacular curved Landwasser Viaduct, passing through the Domleschg Valley and across the Oberalp Pass where the train winds its way up to 2,034m, the highest point it reaches on the trip.
For much of the journey, the Glacier Express passes through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rhaetiean Railway in the Albula and Bernina landscapes. The train is not an ‘express’ in the sense that it travels at high speed – in fact it has a reputation as being one of the slowest express trains in the world – but it provides a one-seat ride that allows passengers to relish the stunning scenery, impressive rock formations and ancient castle ruins en route.
On arrival at Andermatt, guests transfer to The Chedi Andermatt, a luxury hotel combining Alpine chic and Asian expression, for a further two nights. In addition to two three-course dinners, access to the hotel’s award-winning spa and health club (where guests will experience a 60-minute Alpienne Mountain Massage), the package includes a round of golf at the 18-hole Andermatt Swiss Alps golf course, which is located between the mountain villages of Andermatt and Hospental in the picturesque Ursener Valley.
Opened in 2014, this ecologically- developed golf course has made the best of the naturally undulating ground and is regarded as one of the most attractive golf layouts in the Alps, winning ‘Switzerland’s Best Golf Course’ at the 2016 World Golf Awards.
