Switzerland is a small, steep country, much more up and down than sideways, and is all stuck over with large brown hotels built on the cuckoo style of architecture.
As the scandalmongering author Ernest Hemingway once wrote. Some time has passed since this finding. However, the Swiss hotel landscape rarely sees such remarkable specimens as the Laudinella blossom, welcoming travellers, artists and athletes from all over the world a comfortable, temporary home with fine dining in six restaurants, a spa with views, and a year-round cultural and course program. This amazing story of the Laudinella Cooperative as a hotel and cultural operation began in the autumn of 1956. Only a few months later, in 1957, the Laudinella Hotel was opened in St. Moritz-Bad. Organising cultural events in St. Moritz and operating a hotel with good value for money were the objectives of initiator and founder Hannes Reimann, and these objectives are still pursued and successfully implemented up to the present day.
Cultural commitment and the hotel and restaurants of the Laudinella Cooperative, with their excellent value for money, are unique. Currently, 2,100 cooperative members contribute towards this success.
The broad base in the community through membership in the Laudinella Cooperative secures the ideal of the cooperative looking forward.
