Schweizerhof Zermatt – Switzerland

Designed in an authentic alpine chalet style, Schweizerhof Zermatt is a historic landmark in the legendary Swiss ski resort, situated in the heart of the Alps, at the foot of the Matterhorn, five minutes walking distance to the Gornergrat Bahn.

Taken over by Michel Reybier of ultra-luxury hotel group La Réserve, a pioneer of fair and meaningful luxury hospitality, Schweizerhof Zermatt offers today a new version of the mountain way of life. 

Designed by Kristian Gavoille & Valérie Garcia, specialists in new nomadic lifestyles, all the rooms and suites have deliberately alpine, warm and audacious style.

Soft rugs, fire, red and wood are everywhere keeping the right mountain life feeling, together with sophisticated luxury and cool details.

Open spaces and relaxed mood encourage to share and explore, making this wonderful retreat the right one for friends, families and couples, as well as solo travellers and corporate team building events.

Behind the doors of the smoking-room “Le Fumoir”, two large cigar cellars propose a high-end selection in a deliberately modern dandy atmosphere, completed by soft light atmosphere and an elegant billiard table, a perfect match with every single details.

Old and divine rocking chairs, immensely comfortable, will allow you to browse the collection of beautiful, leather-bound books, rife around the room.

At the hour when the day slips away, the finest wines emerge from the vinothèque and the digestifs become malicious: Grappa di Chardonnay, Cognac and wine glasses of Grand Cru.
