For guests who love the luxury of tranquility. For people who appreciate simplicity and are looking for something special.

In the middle of the historic village of Guarda you find the traditional Hotel Meisser - a jewel of the Engadine mountains. The typical Engadine house from the 17th century has been managed by the Meisser family since 1893. Here you are welcomed by individually designed rooms in alpine style. Traditional and fragrant pine wood combined with natural materials, stylish refuges with antique charm and loving details. The Hotel Meisser has a historical dining room, a panoramic restaurant where healthy, light and seasonal dishes are served. The large hotel garden, which invites you to relax and enjoy, and the Stüvetta lounge with a small library and fireplace complete the offer.

There are many moving moments in 130 years of Meisser. You will encounter some treasures in our house as part of the furnishings and as a respectful sign of lived hospitality. Follow us to the year 1893: Andreas Meisser and his wife Barbla Barth bought the Chasa Meni in Guarda. He set the foundation stone of the hotel's history with 15 beds. Barbla and Andreas had three children. Son Andreas continued to run the hotel with his wife Wilhelmine Seif.

In 1918, after difficult years, things were looking up again and numerous guests were staying in Guarda. Wilhelmine and Andreas Meisser became parents of three children and their son Rudolf started a career in the hotel business. In 1935 he married Pauline Willy and together they now invested in their hotel as the 3rd generation. During the 2nd World War, Pauline and Rudolf operated the farm more intensively and after the war, the hotel business almost completely collapsed. In 1952 Rudolf Meisser bought the Pension Bellevue in Davos-Dorf, where the private Hotel Meisser was created, the family's winter business. In the summer business Guarda first rooms got shower or bath. Pauline and Rudolf's son Ralf became a chef, graduated from hotel management school and gained experience around the world. In 1967 Ralf took over the family business and in 1971 he married his wife Kathrin Schwarzenbach, who gave him two children: Benno and Sandra. Together, the couple went through an intensive period of modernization in Guarda and Davos. In 1978, the Meisser family built an apartment in Davos and Ralf Meisser's refined kitchen became a popular meeting place for gourmets. In 1999, son Benno returned to Guarda to run the business with his parents. He had previously completed an apprenticeship as a chef, attended the Thun School of Gastronomy and gained several years of experience in the upscale hotel and restaurant business in Switzerland and abroad. In 2000 Ralf and Kathrin Meisser bought the Chasa Pepina and renovated it. The old parlors became dignified suites. In 2001, the Hotel Meisser in Davos was sold. On Benno's initiative, the hotel in Guarda was expanded into a year-round operation. In 2002 Maya Aebli joined the business as an employee. In 2008, Benno Meisser and Maya Aebli got married. Shortly after, Alessia was born and almost at Christmas 2010 her brother Lars Noël. The 6th Hotel Meisser generation was born. Furthermore, everything remains in flux and the hospitable commitment remains a matter of the heart.

Here in the Meisser Resort you are welcomed by rooms in alpine style. Traditional and fragrant stone pine wood meets modern zeitgeist. Consensual and respectful with a sense of what history brings, combined with natural materials for what is needed today. Dormers, windows and balconies let in the southern light everywhere. So that natural views have priority, we deliberately replace televisions with binoculars!

When preparing our delicious menus, everything revolves around honest ingredients and seasonal selection. We maintain a respectful relationship with our food, fill our shopping baskets with regional products and enrich our dishes with wild herbs and flowers from Guarda. The art nouveau hall in the former hay barn forms the stylish setting for our half-board menus with accompanying wine recommendation.
