The Belvedere Hotel in Scuol (almost 130 years old) is one of the architectural witnesses of the burgeoning spa tourism in the Lower Engadine. The four-star hotel stands for upscale gastronomy, cultural events, wellness, etc. The traditional building is a sculpted monumental structure with a tower-like extension in an exposed hillside location.
Since 1999, the hotel has been renovated in various stages. In 2001, a small wellness area was created on the park level, with an associated relaxation room housed in a simple red-painted wooden box in the hotel garden.
In 2004, to expand the wellness offer, they decided to directly connect the Bogn Engiadina to the hotel. This idea found its spatial form in a 135-metre-long walkway between the hotel and the spa, which can be traversed by hotel guests in bathrobes at all times of the year.
In 2007, the hotel was expanded with a new wing. The top three floors contain 15 new hotel rooms, nine of which have an interior balcony. On the street level there is the lounge with a bar and a fireplace and, on the park level, there is the new wellness area.
In 2011, the "Chasa Nova" was opened on the opposite side of the street. It complements the resort ensemble owned by the Baumgartner family. The "Chasa" has nine hotel suites with 50 to 70 m2, three meeting rooms for up to 130 people, as well as four shops. An underground walkway connects the buildings, so after a meeting, one can walk directly to the 14-Gault-Millau-point restaurant of the Hotel GuardaVal, to a banquet at the Belvedere or to relaxation area in one of the hotel's spas or the 13,000 m2 Bogn Engiadina spa complex in Scuol.
Two of the three new seminar and conference rooms are connected by a soundproof sliding door and, if desired, can be combined to accommodate up to 130 people. 36 underground parking spaces compensate for the former parking spaces where the "Chasa Nova'' now stands. On the ground floor of the "Chasa Nova '' are the Valentin Vinoteca, Coiffeur Nova, Pastizaria Peder Benderer, as well as the information office of Engadin Adventure and the mountain railways.
