History & Story
Nira Alpina, a 4* Superior Design Hotel, was opened in winter 2011-2012 and offers a new, more authentic approach to experience the beauty of the Engadin valley. It is situated in the Swiss ski resort of St. Moritz and is connected to the Corvatsch cable car station via a private walkway. Within our hotel, winter or summer, you’ll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style – we’re not a typical St. Moritz hotel. You’ll sense an ambiance that’s buzzy, bordering on Bohemian… our Swiss spa resort is for worldly, well-travelled individuals.

Located at the foot of Mount Corvatsch in the idyllic village of Surlej, Nira Alpina is just 8 kilometers and a short drive away from St. Moritz
