The Chedi Andermatt, the ultimate vision of architect Jean-Michel Gathy, was realized and stands in the Swiss Alps 1,447 metres above sea level. Because of its convenient location between the majestic Gemsstock and the Schöllenen Gorge, it’s the best place to go for peace, reflection, restoration, and indulgence. The hotel has received a number of awards, including 2017 Hotel of the Year, Switzerland’s Best Holiday Hotel of 2018/19, and Best Winter Hotel of 2018/19.
The Chedi and its 123 guest rooms and suites combine Asian and Alpine elements like stone and wood textures in its architectural designs. Its panoramic windows make it easy to enjoy the scenic views of the Swiss Alps from the comfort of leather armchairs and cashmere blankets to snuggle in.
Outside the hotel are waterfalls, alpine lakes, and pistes. Hikers, mountain bikers, and skiers are fond of the new link between Andermatt, Sedrun, and Disentis, the largest ski area in central Switzerland. For the perfect ski-in/ski-out experience, guests of the hotel have direct access to the Ski Butlers and “Magic Belt”.
“Chedi” is the Thai term for “temple”, and that sense of peace and relaxation is represented well by The Spa and Health Club, inspired by Asian cultures with their Thai-style massage in the Tibetan Relaxation Lounge. There is also a 35-metre indoor pool, and a decadent Cigar Library for guests to enjoy.
There are a number of restaurants here. First is The Restaurant, which has four show kitchens. Between those is a five-metre high glass Cheese Tower. They offer more than 40 regional and international treats. The Michelin-starred Japanese Restaurant features a sushi and sashimi bar and over 99 sake selections – the most extensive found in Europe. Last is The Pop-Up Restaurant, located in The Courtyard, where guests can go ice-skating in the Ice Rink and then go to The Chalet restaurant to get mouthwatering cheese fondues and raclettes.
