Switzerland | Chedi Andermatt
- DETAILS, DETAILS -
TYPE: A mountain resort in the Swiss Alps.
ROOMS: Rooms have been decorated in that contemporary Chedi style, but there is a major focus on creating a sense of place. Dark stone, wood, leather and fur are everywhere, reminding you that you're in one of the world's most beautiful mountain ranges. Rooms feature fireplaces and the most up-to-date technology, from Bose sound systems to an iPad Mini that controls every feature of the room. Wine plays a big role in the design of the hotel. Rooms feature wine cellars that can be stocked with your favorite selection prior to arrival. Every room features a balcony, but the highlight is definitely the bed. The mattresses come form Hastens, the Swedish manufacturer that uses natural materials, such as cotton, horsehair, wood and flax.
POOL/GYM: The Chedi has an indoor infinity-edge pool covered by a glass roof that heats up in the winter to melt the snow, so you always have a view. The gym features the most modern technology from Technogym. There are also group classes offered, from yoga and Pilates to mountain biking and cross-country skiing excursions.
RESTAURANT: The main restaurant at the property focuses on Asian and Western cuisine. The highlight is the cellar stocked with the area's best cheeses and wines for guests to enjoy. During high seasons (summer and winter) the hotel opens its Japanese restaurant by Chef Hide Yamamoto that offers a Tempura counter, a Sushi counter and a more traditional dining room.
VIBE: Sexy, intimate and innovative are all words that come to mind.
