Hide & Groove

We proudly present «Coän» from Ibiza.

Groovy, cozy and sometimes quite caliente. This year’s resident musicians at the Hotel Giardino Mountain are twins, previously known as “The lazy Twins”. They were born and raised in Ibiza, come from a musical family and have been studying music and singing since the age of seven. Their beautiful harmonies will make you fall in love with them. They have a huge repertoire of English and Spanish music and bring the special and peaceful atmosphere of Ibiza to the Engadin.

World Snow Day

The cool wind in your face, a slight murmur in your ears and a breathtaking scenery before your eyes. Skiing is not only a winter sport for adrenaline junkies, but something for all senses. Whether it’s leisurely on the red slope or in a shot steep downhill — skiing offers a feeling of freedom. But in order to feel safe on the slopes, or to dare to hit the black piste, you need practice and training.

On World Snow Day on January 16 and 17, 2021, ski beginners and trial skiers will therefore receive free lessons at the Swiss ski schools Suvretta, St. Moritz and Zuoz. The World Snow Day is organized by Engadin St. Moritz Tourism in cooperation with the local ski schools in the Upper Engadin. The offer includes free rental equipment and ski tickets for all participating children, families and adults. On the piste, ready, go!

Ecco Private Dining

Some occasions require exclusivity. Whether it is a customer event with wow-effect, an extravagant company or family celebration, or simply an unforgettable and intimate moment for two. In the Restaurant Ecco St. Moritz, guests can enjoy the aromatic cuisine of Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf and his team in a very private atmosphere. The restaurant is located in the former chapel of the former girls’ boarding school – a white-golden room with artistic sgraffiti on the walls.

With its inviting surroundings, quiet atmosphere and stylish ambience, every occasion becomes a special experience. 2-Michelin stars and 18 GaultMillau points become almost a minor matter.

Rolf Fliegauf will be happy to create your own menu according to your wishes. Bookable on request for up to 30 persons from 18 December 2020 to 13 March 2021.

Live-Artist Show

Rough voice, smooth movement. As contrasting as their characteristics are, as harmonious are their interactions. While one sings upright, the other stands head over heels. Really? Astonish yourself. Aesthetic, impressive, captivating – the unique interplay of two gifted artists.

Over 120 shows a year, both at home and abroad. As a talented live musician, Nils Burri performs on stages such as the Gurtenfestival, the Moon & Stars Locarno as well as in smaller venues. Be careful, the singer-songwriter has a bad habit: He mercilessly casts a spell over you from the first note.

Dancer, contortionist or a model? Everything and not only. Renowned, international, unprecedented. She is known as the snake woman, as the one who twists her body in ways that would be impossible for a normal person. We are talking about the exceptional artist Nina Burri. Her talent has taken her around the globe; from Berne to China, from Berlin to Tokyo, from Israel to Paris. And now she is here, just for you, at the Giardino Ascona.

Green gold

Medicinal herbs play an essential role in Ayurveda – for detoxification, relaxation, or a better memory. Simple everyday troubles can be treated in a very gentle way using these herbs. Indian spices such as turmeric or garam masala are an integral part of Ayurveda. Yet local herbs are also used in the Giardino kitchens every day to create therapeutic meals.

Wild garlic, rocket and dandelion from the local area are used by the chefs.

 

Wild garlic

This medicinal plant has been prized for thousands of years for its powerful healing properties. Rubbing its leaves releases a fragrance like garlic. Wild garlic cleanses the blood and stomach and is particularly well suited to people with high blood pressure. Caution: wild garlic should be avoided during pregnancy.

 

 

 

 

 

Dandelion

The roots and leaves of dandelion have detoxifying and anti­ inflammatory properties. After a winter diet high in protein, dandelion helps to cleanse the liver once spring comes around. This is thanks to the bitter compounds it contains, which also stimulate the metabolism. The vitamin­rich herb tastes excellent in salads. Its flowers can be used to make wonderful jellies and syrups.

 

 

 

         Marjoram

Marjoram is an ancient Ayurvedic medicinal plant. Its leaves are often used as a                                     gastrointestinal treatment. Due to its sharp and slightly bitter flavor, it also has digestive,                   appetizing, and bracing properties. As an essential oil, marjoram relieves pain and spasms.

 

 

 

 

 

   

Chervil

Chervil contains plenty of iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. The plant can help with headaches, infections and inflammation. Its delicate leaves taste of a mixture of parsley and anise. Chervil is best used fresh, as once dried it loses its aroma and healing properties.

 

 

 

 

Rocket

The mustard oils in rocket not only give the herb its intense taste – they also contribute to its healing properties. Rocket helps to reduce bloating, promotes digestion, and is rich in folic acid. It also contains vitamin B, which helps to prevent cardiovascular disease and dementia.

Easter brunch in Locarno

The scent of fresh flowers and a blaze of colours: enjoy Easter at Giardino with all your senses. The Sunday brunch on Sunday and Monday for the whole family never leave a dull moment. There are plenty of options for a snack with a view of the lake.

Muzeum Susch

Located on the grounds of a medieval monastery, Muzeum Susch is a new addition to the variety of experimental places for art. The ensemble, consisting of the former parsonage, as well as the reception and service buildings, was part of a rural monastery built in 1157 on the Flüela Pass, and thus on the pilgrimage path to Rome and Santiago de Compostela, and supplemented by a brewery in the 19th century.

These existing structures were carefully restored and recombined for the museum. Exhibitions and experimental forms of presentation, performances, lectures and a studio programme await you. Modern and extravagant.

Berry Museum

The Berry Museum, which is housed in the 100-year old Villa Arona in the heart of St. Moritz, is dedicated to the spa physician and painter, Peter Robert Berry (1864–1942). The majority of his oil paintings, pastels and drawings produced over a period of forty years are still in family ownership.

Drawing on this extensive collection, the Berry Museum has now for the first time provided a deeper insight into Peter Robert Berry’s artistic works. These are complemented by the artist’s extensive and culturally-significant estate, consisting of books, letters, notes, diaries, music-related items and numerous documents such as maps, brochures and writings in connection with the founding and development of the health resort of St. Moritz.

Thus the exhibits vividly demonstrate how life, work and landscape all interlink to form a unique record of the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Schlitten fahren: Muottas Muragl

Dann gilt: Schlittenschnauze anheben, Kufenenden in den Schnee bohren – und erneut Anlauf nehmen, damit sich Tempo aufbauen kann für die langen Geraden.

20 Kurven reich ist die rasanteste aller Schlittelbahnen der Region. Und auf 4,2 Kilometern sorgen 705 Höhenmeter für Action. Unten dann will man nur noch eins: nochmals hoch und diesen Temporausch ein zweites Mal erleben.

Toboggan run: Muottas Muragl

There’s a crunching sound in the air around the pines and larches dusted with snow: it comes from the braking maneuvers that the tobogganists make when a curve gets too tight. The best thing to do then is to lift up the front of the toboggan, dig the ends of the runners into the snow and take another running jump onto the sledge, so that it can pick up enough speed for the long straights.

There are 20 curves in all on the fastest of all the region’s toboggan runs. Over 4.2 kilometers (2.6 miles) guarantee plenty of action. By the time you get to the bottom, you only want one thing – to go up to the top again, and experience the thrill a second time.

Rent of a toboggan costs CHF 15.00.

Even more impressive is the spectacular mountain panorama that awaits you at the end of the next part of the ride, when you step out of the cabin at the highest summit station in the eastern alps at an altitude of 3’303m.

Private: Cheese & Champagne

Winter in the mountains. Biting cold air, pure white snow and twinkling stars. And you? You’re right in the midst of it all with fondue and champagne. It’s not a luxurious survival camp though, it’s our new pop-up restaurant RSRV (pronounced “reservé”) on the terrace of the Giardino Mountain hotel. But you won’t freeze – you’ll be protected from the elements by a transparent dome, for an outdoor feeling with an indoor temperature!

And, in keeping with the season, we will only be serving Swiss cheese fondues. Not just any old fondue, though. We have created delicious local versions of this traditional dish: an Engadine cheese fondue, a luxurious cheese fondue with truffles and the St. Moritz Edition with champagne, all of which are served as the main course of a three-course dinner with a starter and dessert. If you wish, you can also enjoy a Mumm RSRV champagne, which is available exclusively in select gourmet restaurants.

If you are looking for one of the best cheese fondues St. Moritz has to offer and want to enjoy it in a truly cool location, cheese and champagne at the pop-up restaurant RSRV is the perfect choice. The limited number of places (a maximum of 30 people) also ensures an exclusive experience. We recommend reserving a table in advance.

The pop-up restaurant will be open from 20 December 2019 to 8 March 2020.

Private: Training camp: 2020 ski marathon

Goals
Prepare optimally for the ski marathon or half marathon, complete guided training sessions on the marathon course, improve technique and performance

What it’s about
An institution since 1969, the Engadin Skimarathon is now Switzerland’s largest sporting event. Last winter’s event had 14,000 cross-country skiing enthusiasts from 65 nations take part. The 42-km marathon route takes participants over frozen lakes, past Engadine villages and through wonderful winter landscapes. This training camp by the Giardino Coach will prepare you optimally for taking part and make new personal records possible. A whole week of professional training sessions and tips on technique and nutrition will get you in the very best form. Whether you’re doing the marathon or the half marathon and whether you are a beginner or an advanced skier – professional preparation is half the work.

The Giardino Coach
We continuously improve our everyday life. With state-of-the-art technology, the latest fashion trends and quick relaxation when we’re short on time, we optimise our life as a matter of course. Unfortunately, we then often stop short of applying this to what is most important: ourselves. And it is precisely here that Giardino Coach and personal trainer Vladimir Zic begins. He demonstrates to customers the potential of their own body and mind, defines goals together with them and sets them on the path to also achieving these independently. On your marks, get set, me!

All training sessions are personally overseen by the Giardino Coach.

Private: Training camp: cross-country skiing

Goals
Learn techniques from a professional, complete guided training sessions, improve endurance and performance

What it’s about
Anyone who thinks that cross-country skiing is just downhill skiing on the flat could not be more wrong. Specific equipment and techniques and a special way of using the body make this winter sport a completely independent discipline. At the training camp with the Giardino Coach, beginners and intermediate skiers will learn everything they need to be able to glide safely through the wonderful winter landscape of the Engadine with skill and endurance. After just five days – with daily training, professional equipment and courses on technique – you will be able to glide over the cross-country ski tracks like a near-professional.

Ayurveda basic programme

As a therapeutic health programme, Ayurveda goes far beyond the classic concept of wellness. The Ayurveda team, comprising Ayurveda specialists and physicians, offers professional cures that help you sustainably combat acute and chronic ailments such as acidosis, weight issues, back pain, burnout, digestive problems, food allergies or sleep disorders.

All cures are based on Far Eastern teachings but tailored to the needs of the Western world. The individual programmes consist of type-appropriate nutrition, therapeutic treatments, guided yoga and mindfulness sessions. This restores balance to both the body and mind in a completely natural way.

The basic programme
No two Ayurveda cures are alike. Our Ayurvedic therapy is so successful because it is specially adapted to the constitution and needs of the individual. For example, before starting the cure, the nutrition plan and therapeutic treatments are specially tailored to you on the basis of your personal medical history. The basic programme provides the framework for every stay. It includes:

Introduction
– Medical history consultation with a pulse rate and tongue diagnosis as well as nutrition counselling

Daily
– Ayurvedic full board
– Yoga, breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation
– Participation in the weekly programme
– Perspiration therapy (svedana)
– Entry to the spa area

End
– Final consultation and strengthening of the body’s natural resources

Depending on the cure package or personal medical history, these elements are then complemented by specially tailored additional services, such as massages or treatments. These are already included in the cure price.

General information

  • Ayurveda cures should last at least three days.
  • Alcohol, coffee and other stimulants should be avoided.
  • The cure prices already include all necessary cure services without any hidden additional costs (incl. a personal nutrition plan and full board).
  • Hotel services are not included. Cure guests receive a 20% reduction on the room price (subject to availability during the high season and on public holidays).

Heliski
Virgin snow, icy silence and the unbeatable feeling of being the first to leave your tracks on the mountainside – this is heli-skiing.

Shape your body

Goals
Train and shape your body, build muscle, reduce cellulite and become more attractive

What it’s about
Being lean doesn’t necessarily mean you look fit. Without sports training, individuals chiefly lack the supporting muscles and a healthy metabolism. To ensure your body does not come across as limp and short on energy, it needs targeted challenges. To this end, the Giardino Coach develops a personal programme that leads to a strong, toned and beautiful body in an especially efficient manner. Get on the track to changing the way you perceive your body in seven days. Including follow-up support and a second training plan.

The Giardino Goach
We continuously improve our everyday life. With state-of-the-art technology, the latest fashion trends and quick relaxation when we’re short on time, we optimise our life as a matter of course. Unfortunately, we then often stop short of applying this to what is most important: ourselves. And it is precisely here that Giardino Coach and personal trainer Vladimir Zic begins. He demonstrates to customers the potential of their own body and mind, defines goals together with them and sets them on the path to also achieving these independently. On your marks, get set, me!

All training sessions are personally overseen by the Giardino Coach.

Programme

  • Day 1: Check-up, setting of goals and training plan (75 min.), bioelectrical impedance analysis (15 min.), initial Power Plate strength training 60 min.)
  • Day 2: Cardio training plus core training (60 min.)
  • Day 3: Power Plate strength training (60 min.)
  • Day 4: Cardio training plus core training (60 min.)

Goals

What it’s about
How can I get fitter? What is appropriate for me? What will I find fun? These questions see many people already give up in bewilderment before they have even begun. With the Giardino Coach, you will find the right answers from the outset, allowing you to hit the ground running and stay motivated. Perfect for beginners and everyone interested in personal training. Including a check-up, training plan and personal support over three days.

Goals

Train for golf

Goals
Improve your swing, prevent injuries and build strength

What it’s about
Those who play golf know the demands that this sport places on the body. What many are unaware of is that targeted training can lead to an astonishing improvement in performance. The “Train for golf” summer special can be completed ideally as part of a golf week. Personal goals such as injury prevention, strength development and coordination skills can be set individually and prioritised accordingly. The Giardino Coach thus creates a new playing experience in five days. Giardino Ascona is the first golf resort in Ticino: Offering direct access to the Golf Club Patriziale Ascona’s 18-hole course, the oldest golf course in Ticino, this is about as close as it gets to the action.

Panchakarma cure

The panchakarma cure is Ayurvedic cleansing par excellence – a system of five coordinated treatment cycles. As many Europeans would find the classic version of this cure quite rough, our Ayurveda therapists have developed a cleansing cure that is gentle yet highly effective, and therefore tailored to Western needs.

First, your individual dosha structure is determined by means of a 90-minute medical history consultation and pulse rate and tongue diagnosis. The aim is to uncover any physical disharmony. In addition, your eating habits and personal lifestyle are taken into account and reflected upon. Based on this, an individual treatment programme is developed, including a nutrition plan, Ayurvedic dietary supplements, herbal preparations, Ayurvedic treatments and recommendations for the time after the cure. The programme also includes all accompanying therapies such as yoga and meditation.

The cure focuses on awareness of a healthy life and the balance of the body, mind and soul. The Ayurveda cleansing cure by Giardino is recommended for maintaining health and when recovering from various ailments, such as nervous or musculoskeletal system disorders.

Objectives
The panchakarma cure lasts at least 14 days and enables you to physically and mentally regenerate. During the cure, the digestive fire is strengthened and the body is gently freed of toxins (ama). Self-healing powers are activated and life energies renewed. You will experience a profound rejuvenation and regeneration on a physical, emotional and mental level. This cleansing cure helps you reduce stress, find yourself again and detoxify the body. Its healing effect creates physical and mental stability, and the immune system is sustainably strengthened.

The panchakarma cure includes:

Introduction
– Medical history consultation with a pulse rate and tongue diagnosis as well as nutrition counselling
– 1 Ayurvedic cookery class
– 1 to 2 days of cleansing (virechana)
– Svedana perspiration therapy (heat therapy)

Daily
Ayurvedic treatments based on the medical history
– Ayurvedic full board
Dietary supplements
Tea and hot water drinking cure
Yoga, breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation

End

Anti-aging with Ayurveda

Aging is a natural process that begins the moment we are born. The rate at which it progresses may differ from one person to the next, but everyone will feel the effects by the time they hit middle age at the latest. Not only do our physical and mental abilities start to decline, but our appearance changes considerably too. Often, our physical age and perceived age no longer match. The resultant malaise is inevitable.

Despite the causes being natural, a hectic everyday life and an unhealthy lifestyle speed up the aging process. And this is where the “Anti-aging with Ayurveda” cure can be of great benefit. With type-appropriate nutrition, tissue-rejuvenating treatments and attentive relaxation, you will find your way back to your natural age.

Objectives
The seven-day “Anti-aging with Ayurveda” rejuvenation cure slows down the aging process for both the body and mind. Enjoyed regularly, it can even help you stay healthy well into old age. The detoxification and regeneration of the tissue lead to outer beauty, while yoga and meditation provide inner balance.

Introduction

Relieve back pain

Almost everyone has experienced back pain or tight muscles, but if these constantly recur or become chronic or more widespread, your quality of life suffers greatly. After all, back pain does not just hurt, it also restricts your mobility, hinders an active everyday life and impacts your mental well-being. Avoidance behaviour and limited activity exacerbate the problem.

Depending on the severity, Ayurvedic measures can have a positive effect and sustainably relieve back pain. From neck pain to shoulder problems to pain in the lumbar region: Ayurveda can lead to significant improvements – even if alternatives have already failed.

Objectives
The five-day “Relieve back pain” Ayurveda cure directly combats the causes of pain. A package of massages, treatments and nutrition is specially designed based on your medical history. The body is cleansed, blockages and tight muscles are released and pain is relieved. Yoga sessions help to correct your posture and make structures supple.

This cure is also ideal in the case of joint problems or degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system (osteoarthritis).

Eliminate sleep disorders

Whether problems falling asleep or waking up at night – sleep disorders have a massive impact on our health and well-being. And it is not just lying awake at night that is a problem. Over time, the lack of sleep eats away at your physical and mental strength during everyday life. Your abilities to concentrate and perform wane, problems increase and a good night’s sleep becomes even more unlikely. You are constantly tired and struggle to focus.

The most common cause of sleep disorders is stress. Modern society forces us to live our lives at breakneck speed, which can place strain on the vegetative nervous system and trigger nervous disorders. The “Eliminate sleep disorders” Ayurveda cure helps you slow down, reduce mental and physical stress and start to sleep soundly once more.

Objectives
The six-day “Eliminate sleep disorders” Ayurveda cure focuses on strengthening your nerves and restoring peace and balance. Harmonising massages and treatments, type-appropriate nutrition and yoga and meditation gradually help you get a better night’s sleep. You can then simply incorporate what you have learned into your everyday life for continuous and sustainable improvement.

“Eliminate sleep disorders” includes:

Introduction
– Medical history consultation with a pulse rate and tongue diagnosis as well as nutrition counselling

Treatments
– 1 shirodhara treatment (pouring oil over the forehead) (45 min.)

Detox with Ayurveda

Everyone is talking about detoxing, and quite rightly so. After all, prolonged stress, an unbalanced diet and too little exercise can lead to a noticeable reduction in quality of life in the long term. Both our physical and mental abilities start to diminish and everyday life becomes increasingly burdensome.

Ayurveda attributes this malaise to an imbalance of the acid–base system in the body, an acidosis triggered by an unhealthy lifestyle. “Detox with Ayurveda” naturally combats this imbalance and provides sustainable equilibrium.

Objectives
The six-day “Detox with Ayurveda” cure gently restores the balance of acids and bases in the body. Your ability to perform improves, your sense of well-being returns and your quality of life is enhanced. An individually tailored diet helps the body to detoxify. Massages, heat treatments and baths, as well as exercise through yoga, activate the circulation and hence your own metabolic processes.

The detox programme is also ideal for anyone with skin problems, food intolerances, a lack of energy or digestive disorders.

“Detox with Ayurveda”includes:

Introduction
– Medical history consultation with a pulse rate and tongue diagnosis as well as nutrition counselling

Treatments
– 3 alkaline baths
– 2 lepas body treatments (45 min. each)
– 2 abhyanga massages including head, face and foot massage (90 min. each)
– 1 udvartana herbal powder massage or herbal compress massage (60 min.)
– 1 tailored facial treatment (90 min.)

Daily
– Ayurvedic full board
– Yoga, breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation
– Participation in the weekly programme
– Perspiration therapy (svedana)
– Entry to the spa area

End
– Final consultation and strengthening of the body’s natural resources

Lose weight sustainably

Want to lose weight – sustainably, without a yo-yo effect and without suffering? You are far from alone in this desire. Today, one in two people in Europe are classed as overweight. It is a widespread problem that is often caused by our modern standard of living. In addition to the aesthetic aspect, being permanently overweight often also results in health problems. The most common of these include fatiguing quickly, high blood pressure, joint problems and diabetes. There is also the issue of a constant feeling of dissatisfaction.

From an Ayurvedic perspective, weight issues are always associated with a disrupted or reduced digestive fire and the accumulation of toxins (ama) in the body. Ama block the body’s microchannels, leading to an increase in fatty tissue.

Objectives
The six-day “Lose weight sustainably” cure helps you both lose weight and sustain your target weight. First, your medical history is used to determine the causes of your imbalance. The individual programme (incl. a personal nutrition plan) then stimulates an active metabolism and improves digestion. We work together to lay the foundations for a new body image and a healthier lifestyle. Yoga provides a gentle introduction to physical activity and meditation restores your inner peace. The additional nutritional coaching helps you keep the weight off sustainably. After just a few days, you will have reshaped your body image and feel not only lighter but above all happier with your body.

“Lose weight sustainably”  includes:

Introduction
– Medical history consultation with a pulse rate and tongue diagnosis as well as nutrition counselling

Treatments
– 1 nutritional coaching session (60 min.)
– 2 abhyanga massages (90 min.)
– 1 herbal compress massage (60 min.)

An introduction to Ayurveda

Are you familiar with Ayurveda? Or do oil massages and Indian cuisine instantly spring to mind? As the world’s oldest form of health teaching, it is true that Ayurveda has its roots in present-day India, but its fundamentals can be optimally transferred to the Western hemisphere. After all, its objective is universal: balance.

The connection between physical health and spiritual well-being has now been confirmed by conventional medicine. Ayurveda, the over 3,500-year-old health system, builds on this finding. If an imbalance exists and the body and mind are not in harmony, illness follows. Ayurvedic therapies aim to restore balance and therefore address the root of the problem.

Objectives
The three-day “An introduction to Ayurveda” cure will give you an insight into what an Ayurvedic therapy can achieve. You will discover which imbalance is causing your ailments and receive a detailed analysis and a personal therapy programme. This firstly comprises a personalised nutrition plan, which is not based on Indian cooking, but instead applies Ayurvedic principles to light and modern cuisine. It secondly includes specially tailored therapeutic treatments, physical exercise and relaxation sessions. These approaches restore balance to your inner strengths, remove detrimental toxins and stimulate the body’s self-healing powers.

You do not need any prior knowledge of Ayurveda but even if you are already convinced of its benefits, this compact cure is the perfect introductory option or an ideal refresher.

– Medical history consultation with a pulse rate and tongue diagnosis as well as nutrition counselling

Lose weight

Goals
Lose weight and shape your body, reduce cellulite, develop routines and gain confidence

What it’s about
Optimising your own weight on a sustainable basis is one of the most difficult tasks. Both in terms of ego and your powers of persistence. Failure usually comes from unrealistic expectations, poor preparation or inconsistent implementation. The Giardino Coach ensures that it doesn’t come to this. An individual programme formulates realistic goals, takes account of personal challenges and offers specialist support over seven days. Including follow-up support and a second training plan.

The Giardino Coach
We continuously improve our everyday life. With state-of-the-art technology, the latest fashion trends and quick relaxation when we’re short on time, we optimise our life as a matter of course. Unfortunately, we then often stop short of applying this to what is most important: ourselves. And it is precisely here that Giardino Coach and personal trainer Vladimir Zic begins. He demonstrates to customers the potential of their own body and mind, defines goals together with them and sets them on the path to also achieving these independently. On your marks, get set, me!

All training sessions are personally overseen by the Giardino Coach.

Programme

  • Day 1: Check-up, setting of goals and training plan (75 min.), bioelectrical impedance analysis (15 min.), initial Power Plate strength training plus cardio training (60 min.)
