THE CHEDI ANDERMATT Gotthardstrasse 4, 6490 Andermatt, Switzerland
Surrounded by the natural, year-round beauty of the Swiss Alps, The Chedi Andermatt nestles elegantly among the ski chalets of Andermatt, a village of timeless charms in the Urseren Valley. An effortless two-hour train ride from Zurich brings the guests straight to the idyllic heart of Andermatt, directly opposite the hotel.
For GHM’s first Swiss property, the Asian brand synonymous with style, service and serenity, chose renowned architect Jean-Michel Gathy to design these 123 spacious guest rooms and suites.
Traditional materials such as warm woods and natural stone create intimate yet visually striking accommodations while the extensive facilities include fine restaurants and cozy lounges, a ski-in living room with sports boutique, comprehensive spa and wellness center with a tranquil retreat of hydrothermal baths and a duo of swimming pools against the stunning outdoor Alpine landscape.
Alpine chic meets Asian sleek in these sublime 123 guest accommodations endowed with captivating views of the Swiss Alps, Andermatt Village or Schöllenen Gorge. Sultry dark wood floors stylishly contrast the indulgently soft leather chairs and cozy sofas throughout these generous living spaces that start from 52 to 55 square meters.
Deluxe Suites extend to 100 square meters with picture windows or a private balcony from which to soak up the awe-inspiring alpine panoramas. For some, only the singular 134-square-metre Gemsstock Suite will suffice, named for its unobstructed views of the sky piercing Mount Gemsstock. Others will find their expectations exceeded among the three bedrooms of the grand 330-square-metre Furka Suite, with its full living, dining and kitchen facilities, as well as the utter indulgence of a private spa. Rich alpine woods and warm stone appear throughout all accommodations, allowing nature to work its calming wonders. Housed in the adjacent ‘The Chedi Residences’ wing and instantly accessible by interior passageway, Grand Deluxe Suites feel like private ski chalets and extend to balconies facing Andermatt’s iconic peaks including Gemsstock and Nätschen Mountain.
