Travel to Geneva


Andermatt 2.0

1 January 2018

At the heart of the mission to rejuvenate this sleepy Alpine village, you’ll find The Chedi Andermatt

Jean-Michel Gathy’s blend of chalet chic and Asian elegance somehow works exceptionally well in the mountain setting of Andermatt, where miles of new ski runs welcome their first skiers this season.

Here at the first European outpost of The Chedi, warm timber and local art fill the moodily lit suites, and glass and steel wood-burners keep guests cosy in The Bar & Living Room: your venue for off-piste downtime.

Half-wrapped in glass windows that frame the mountains, the 35-metre pool is a thing of beauty, and the 12-metre outdoor section is a prime spot for deep thoughts under falling snow.

The Chedi’s Asian roots are evident in The Japanese Restaurant, and it’s hard to resist the five-metre-tall cheese cellar in The Restaurant. But for full destination immersion, book a table in The Chalet, a rustic Alpine hut where truffled fondue is served on traditional red and white tablecloths. You can’t get much more Swiss than that.
