It is a particularly successful and charming mix of Alpine chic style skillfully blended with Asian-inspired elements. Between tradition and nature The Chedi Andermatt, in the heart of the Swiss Alps, more precisely in the Orsera Valley, bears the signature of renowned architect Jean-Michel Gathy.
A five-star deluxe resort that takes its inspiration from the chalets and grand hotels of yesteryear that helped coin the famous classic iconography of Swiss bien vivre; the elegant and classy resort fits harmoniously into the village of Andermatt, a destination for elite tourism that knows no seasons.
Asymmetrical lines, balanced shapes, and warm, soft colors are present in all rooms, communal and otherwise, giving The Chedi Andermatt warmth and a familiar sense of belonging.
Different and unique, with its blend of Eastern charm and Western opulence, The Chedi Andermatt is a seductive caress for the spirit and a subtle treat for the eye.
The Chedi, the warmth of exclusivity
Everything here is at the same level of refined quality: its 123 rooms and suites, of varying types, all share more than generous spaces with dark alpine wood floors, soft leather sofas and armchairs, bright windows, and long panoramic balconies that capture the surrounding mountain landscape.
On the walls are reproductions of Rubens paintings and warm dark-colored wood panels with bronze lamps set behind the bed.
A striking fireplace, which looks over both the bed and the living area, then dominates in each room, just as the bathroom features an elegant bathtub, panel-heated natural solid wood flooring, and a separate rain-fall shower.
Symphonies in the kitchen
The culinary offerings at The Chedi are a true experience, and revolve around The Restaurant, the main restaurant that serves European, Swiss, or Asian recipes in its four open kitchens.
Here The Japanese Restaurant represents a journey into upscale oriental flavors: authentic Michelin-starred Japanese delicacies in the sushi/sashimi bar, while the pop-up restaurant The Chalet, with its typical Alpine look, offers Swiss specialties in the winter season (above all, an unforgettable fondue).
The Lobby, The Courtyard, and The Pool in turn offer original and mouth-watering dining options to hotel guests.
The Chedi is also classy relaxation in the sign of comfort: the elegant and atmospheric The Wine and Cigar Library, with its scenic fireplace, in fact features an original cigar humidor and a truly comprehensive selection of top-notch fine wines, while The Cheese Cellar presents flavors and aromas of rare and distinctive regional and local cheeses.
The Pool, then, is a 35-meter glass-roofed indoor pool with a 12-meter temperature-controlled outdoor extension, and offers a range of top ancillary services, such as bath towels, sunscreen, facial toner, newspapers and magazines, fresh fruit and refreshing drinks, classic cocktails, and a choice of tapas.
The Spa, the realm of wellness
The Swiss resort is also, and above all, a true temple for one’s well-being. The Spa spans 2,400 square meters and welcomes guests seeking relaxation: wet area with Finnish and bio saunas, saline and aromatic steam baths, whirlpool, and pools with hot and cold water runs make the hotel one of the best wellness destinations in all of Switzerland.
Available, in addition to The Health Club, with dedicated personal trainers, is a menu of treatments from the Far East performed in the 10 Deluxe-Spa Suites by remarkably experienced therapists and wonderfully skilled hands, following traditional Asian healing principles. Don’t miss the massages, which are invigorating, relaxing and rejuvenating: a panacea for all ills and a panacea for body and mind.
