The Chedi Andermatt, the latest development from luxury hotel group GHM, is tucked away in the Swiss Alps. It's the perfect base for a skiing holiday, or just a sumptuous retreat from the world
The hotel's spa and health club are open seven days a week. If you're looking to improve your fitness, you'll enjoy the temperature-controlled outdoor lap pool, Technogym fitness equipment and free weights, as well as the yoga classes and personal training sessions. If relaxation is more appealing, you'll want to hang out in the saunas, or lie back and be pampered in one of the 10 deluxe treatment suites, where the therapists will tend to you with organic products, from SpaRitual, ila, REN and Alpienne.
The 104 guest rooms and suites are stylishly decorated with wooden floors and plenty of natural stone, with cosy touches such as soft leather sofas, so they're stunning to look at but also feel warm and comfortable. If you really want to lap up the luxury, check out the spectacular 134 square metre Gemsstock Suite, with its views of the sky piercing Mount Gemsstock. As you'd expect, all the rooms are spacious, with spectacular views, rain showers and separate bath, and free Wifi.
Skiing is the big draw here, and the Chedi Andermatt can arrange transport for you directly to the ski lift. In the summer, you can rent a bicycle from the hotel and head off to explore the village of Andermatt and the rest of the beautiful Urseren Valley. If that sounds a little sedate, take a trip by eco-friendly Alpmobile.
The Chedi Andermatt goes to great lengths to ensure that, whatever food you enjoy, and whenever you want to eat it, there's bound to be something perfect for you. The Restaurant is open all day, serving traditional Swiss and European dishes alongside food from the Far East. There's also a huge cheese cellar. In the evenings, The Michelin starred Japanese Restaurant serves authentic Japanese sushi, sashimi and tempura. Add in the hotel's other eateries - The Wine and Cigar Library, The Bar and Living Room, The Lobby, The Courtyard, The Pool – and the 24-hour room service, and you can be sure your every whim will be catered to.
