The hotel was built by Ezio Rech with his wife Oprandi Gesuina "Tina or Giuì". The son of hoteliers and accountants who built the then "Albergo Alpino di San Sebastiano" in the early 1900s, Ezio worked as an emigrant tiler in Salzburg, Bavaria and Switzerland before and during the II world war. Here he met his Tina. She was hired as a waitress at the Palace Hotel in St. Mortiz along with her brother Andrea, a Maitre d'hotel who returned in Italy and opened the famous "Stavros Grill" in Fino del Monte (BG), a restaurant renowned for its many types of fillets from all over the world, caviar and fine wines. In St. Moritz grandfather Ezio tiled, among others, the villas of Anita Eckberg and Gucci. His ability as a builder combined with a strong sense of business and the experience of Tina, convinced them to stop at home to build our Hotel with immense sacrifices. It was 1963.
Thanks to the experience gained with the Swiss masters, the Hotel was already equipped with a telephone switchboard and a lift, things that few had. Silverware, room service and everything excellence demanded. At this time the hotel hosted famous people such as the Counts Medolago, Veronesi, Castellani, commanders like the Hon. Amori, generals of the carabinieri army like Gen. Corsini or the general of the Marines Malatesta. There were great entrepreneurs like Cav. Invernizzi or entertainers such as Ezio Greggio. In these years a new dining room was built, increasing the size of the structure and creating the Tennis court and the Minigolf course. But not satisfied, Ezio tried to take the road of the ski lifts, which however was blocked by the bureaucracy of the province of Trento and by some prominent people of the community who were already carrying out the same type of enterprise.
On the death of Ezio Rech in the summer of 1993, the Hotel passed into the hands of William and Barbara, while the Minigolf and Casetta del Gelato passed to Enrico. In this period the Hotel was burdened by the enormous costs of the succession (a big tax that everyone has to pay when they inherit a company from their parents), extra the costs of the house created by Ezio for the sons that in the division of the assets remained to Enrico, of the new rooms just realized and of the window frames replaced some years before. Winters lacking in snow and the slopes without programmed snow didn't help. In addition, a serious road accident occurred to Willi seriously undermined the continuation of the activity that is only now recovering with difficulty, despite the crisis.
Since 2008 the management of the company has slowly passed into the hands of the sons of William and Barbara, Andrea, Gloria and Greta who, with a spirit of renewal, are looking for new ideas and solutions to be able to continue the business as a fourth generation of hoteliers. Several renovations have been made. Now all the bathrooms are new, the Model Lab has been tripled, the rear garden has been created, in which a splendid Jacuzzi has been installed, the tennis court has also been renovated, now in synthetic grass with the possibility of changing rooms and showers, installed the solar panels for sanitary water heating and Kest Point, the bachuchel for atomic sandwiches and aperitifs.
