Inside The Chedi Andermatt: A sleek, Alpine-Asian retreat at extroardinary heights

Nestled amidst the snow-laden peaks of the Swiss Alps in the Ursern Valley, The Chedi Andermatt beckons travelers to embark on a soul-nourishing journey at extraordinary heights. Beyond its idyllic location in the mountain village of Andermatt, surrounded by expansive meadows and pristine ski slopes—famously spotlighted in the James Bond movie Goldfinger—what truly sets the hotel apart is its sophisticated Alpine-Asian aesthetic, transporting guests to distant lands and offering an authentic experience of pure relaxation. With a storybook setting, sumptuous interiors, a world-class spa and Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant, The Chedi Andermatt promises a stay like none other.

What’s it like inside?

Stepping into the soaring lobby of The Chedi Andermatt, guests are immediately immersed in a sleek atmosphere with natural materials and intricate details abound. Your eyes are irresistibly drawn to the 3.5-tonne Swarovski chandelier hovering above the reception desk, casting a warm, inviting glow over the dark wood finishes and marble accents. Conceived by the renowned Kuala Lumpur-based designer Jean-Michel Gathy, the public spaces masterfully blend chalet-chic elements with a contemporary Asian aesthetic. Imagine: Balinese artworks, striking latticework panels, plush leather sofas and velvet cushions that invite you to sink in and relax. Nature-inspired decor, incorporating warm woods and natural stones, brings the outside in, creating a harmonious balance between the rugged beauty of the Alps and the refined Asian design within. And despite its grand scale, the lobby retains an intimate feel, thanks to the strategic placement of comfy armchairs topped with cashmere throws and numerous fireplaces perfect for luxuriating around after a day on the slopes.

What about the rooms?

The rooms at The Chedi Andermatt are a masterclass in East meets West, offering a carefully curated haven of cozy alpine aesthetics infused with Asian influences. Stepping inside, you’re immediately embraced by the warmth of pine-wood paneled walls, subtly illuminated by Jean-Michel Gathy’s signature low-level lighting. A gas fireplace flickers softly, casting a golden glow that dances across plush faux fur cushions and sleek leather furnishings. Rooms range from the expansive 559-square-foot Deluxe category to the lavish 3,767-square-foot Gotthard Suite, each designed to provide a spacious sanctuary. The bathroom is a marble-clad oasis, equipped with a deep soaking tub that invites you to unwind after a day of adventure on the slopes. And spacious balconies offer panoramic vistas (in all room categories) of nearby alpine peaks.

After a day of adrenaline-fueled adventures on the slopes, guests get to unwind and rejuvenate in one of the world’s best spas. And spa is an understatement. The Chedi Andermatt is home to a 2,400 square meter wellness oasis, spanning three floors with every corner designed to pamper your body and soothe the soul. As you enter, you’re greeted by the sight of the longest pool in Switzerland, its crystal-clear waters beckoning you to take a dip. But the pool is just the beginning. Venture further, and you’ll discover a variety of indulgent amenities, from Finnish and organic saunas to steam baths and a sprawling adult-only zone with three hydrotherapy pools. Each space is meticulously designed to provide maximum comfort and relaxation. For those seeking a more personalized experience, the hotel offers a range of holistic treatments inspired by ancient healing traditions from around the world. And let’s not forget about the gym, where state-of-the-art equipment awaits to help you maintain your fitness even while on vacation. Whether you prefer cardio, strength training, or yoga and pilates, you’ll find everything you need to stay in shape and feel your best.

What’s on the menu?

When it comes to dining at the hotel, prepare your taste buds for an epic culinary journey that would make even the most seasoned gourmets swoon. Let’s start with The Restaurant, an expansive gastronomic playground where four open kitchens serve up a tantalizing array of Asian and Swiss-inspired dishes. Mornings start here with an extraordinary à la carte menu and breakfast buffet ranging from continental spreads to pancakes, pastries, fresh fruits, and more. A 16-foot-high, glass-walled, climate-controlled wine and cheese tower housing 43 types of Swiss cheese alone does not disappoint. The dinner menu brings to life refined Asian cuisine with European classics in an elegant atmosphere. But the beating heart of the hotel is undoubtedly the Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant, helmed by celebrated twin chefs Dominik Sato and Fabio Toffolon. These culinary maestros have elevated Japanese cuisine to an art form, and their Omakase menu is a journey through inventive Asian cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. Imagine savoring Hamachi Shishito with Ponzu Daikon, Breton Lobster with Razor Clams, and Valais Lamb paired with Green Asparagus and Wasabi. Each course is a work of art, a symphony of flavors that leaves you both satiated and yearning for more.

For a truly unforgettable experience, take the Gutsch Express gondola (available during certain dates of the year) up 7,500 feet to the mountaintop outpost of The Japanese Restaurant. There, on the terrace with breathtaking views of the Urseren Valley, you can enjoy an extraordinary Asian meal that feels like dining on top of the world.
