Hans-Ueli Regius and Team
This typical Engadin-style house was built in 1728 and for many generations was used as a farmhouse. The building served as a home, as a stable for the animals and as a barn for provisions. Later it underwent a number of renovations and was converted to a guesthouse.
In June 2011 Hans-Ueli Regius took over the property and with his knowledge of Engadin and with great enthusiasm he made it his goal to make the Boutique Hotel ROMANTICA VAL TUOI an enhancement and contribution to the attractiveness of the beautiful village of Guarda. He manages the hotel personally as hotelier. For the guests in ROMANTICA VAL TUOI, together they have set their target as uniting a high standard of quality with personal atmosphere offered at the best price-performance ratio in Engadin.
Of the 18 individually furnished rooms in ROMANTICA VAL TUOI hardly any two of them are the same. But they all have one thing in common: they are all comfortable, rustic and furnished with loving detail. The homely wood furnishings, the mountain air and the peace of Guarda guarantee you a deep and healthy sleep. Of the 18 rooms, 14 are in the main building and 4 in the lovely neighboring Engadin house «Chasa Vulpi». All rooms are equipped with:
- Internet (except for «Chasa Vulpi»)
- Bathroom with shower / WC, some with bathtub
- Hair dryer
- Bath robes

Hotel guests and visitors to the area are all welcome in our cozy restaurant. Our menu is small and fine. We spoil you with seasonal dishes and regional products and of course with fine Engadin specialties. We are pleased to recommend selected wines from our extensive wine cellar. Viva!
The entrance door is so low that you have to lower your head to enter the «Arvenstube». Even before entering you can already smell the delightful fragrance of rustic Swiss pine. This restaurant room, clad in Swiss pine, is cozy and comfortable and absolutely typical for the Engadin area. We are also pleased to reserve this room for you for private celebrations. Enjoy the unique «Schellenursli-Fondue» in this cozy rustic atmosphere.
Garden Bistro Romantica
The garden bistro is a lovely place to spend time the whole year round; in summer under the shade of sun umbrellas or in winter protected by thick walls of snow, wrapped up in cuddly woolen blankets. Enjoy the sunshine with a refreshing drink and selected Engadin specialties. Or enjoy our cakes, freshly baked every day, with a cup of tea or coffee.
All day long you were out and about in the fresh air, hiking, on snowshoes or skiing. Or maybe you have just arrived in Engadin – now is the time for relaxation for a tired body and soul.
Is there anything better after a strenuous day of sporting activity than to now relax by submerging in a warm whirlpool – guaranteed to relax all those tired muscles? Relax, take a deep breath and just enjoy the warm bubbling water.
After a day out in the cool mountain air, here you can tank up on warmth. In the Finnish sauna you can get your circulation going again. The hot dry air is good for your heart, helps blood flow to the muscles as well as preventing colds.
The harmonious interplay of mild inhalation steam, healthy radiation warmth and herbal aromas in the steam bath is a super beneficial experience for body and soul.
After bathing or sauna then in the relaxation room you can bite into a crunchy apple or drink a cool mountain spring water or look though some magazines. Of course, you can also simply close your eyes and relax – wrapped up cozily in you bath robe.
