The Chedi Andermatt calles itself the best five-star deluxe hotel in Switzerland. Having been voted Hotel of the Year 2017 by GaultMillau and winning most of the prestigious awards there are in hospitality and design, who would argue against?
But I would rather call the Chedi a Deluxe Destination – a place you never want to leave, until maybe running out of Switzer Francs – with a surprisingly harmonious and modern mix of Alpine and Asian influences.
One of the things that strikes you immediately on arrival, is that there are more fire places than rooms and suites, 123 to be more precise. Rooms and suites, that is. Every room has it’s own fire place, and guess how you light it up? With the Ipad that comes with the room.
In summer, you swim in the heated pools, in the outstanding spa and in the surrounding lakes, not heated, the latter;)
After having visited the lovely local museum, Talmuseum Ursern, and hiked the paths around Andermatt; I particulary recommend Unteralp Rundweg, you just retreat back to your luxury destination The Chedi, considering never to leave again until forced to.
PS Since walking in the alps is excellent excercise, as well as skiing in winter, you may enjoy the top nodge restaurants without hesitation. A bliss. DS
