A perfectly matched couple, Andreas Caminada, the multi-award-winning top chef from Graubünden in Switzerland, and the “Grand Dame” of the Swiss luxury hotel world and landmark of St. Moritz, Badrutt’s Palace Hotel form a partnership of equals.

Caminada’s second “fine dining sharing nest” is set to charm guests in future winter seasons in Graubünden, or to be more precise in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in St. Moritz. In culinary terms, this is a brand new and exciting venture for Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. The existing Le Relais restaurant is currently being re-configured to then embody and radiate IGNIV’s typical “cosy nest” atmosphere.


The unique gastronomic concept IGNIV has been wowing guests of different generations in Grand Resort Bad Ragaz for almost a year. The expansion in the nest enables the traditional hotel’s guests from December 2016 onwards for future winter seasons to savour the creative cuisine.
