In the heart of a magnificent mountain backdrop the Chedi Andermatt is delighting its guests with a fusion of alpine chic and asian expression, culinary delicacies and the spa and health club extending over 2,400 square metres.
For some time now the small Swiss town of Andermatt has been slumbering peacefully, that was until the Egyptian businessman Samih Sawiris decided to breathe a bit of life back into it with the 5-star deluxe hotel The Chedi Andermatt, which within a very short time has elevated to a top position in international hotel, gastronomy and spa rankings.
Generous Luxury & Asian Delicacies
The affinity to nature and attention to detail can be sensed throughout the hotel and is particularly apparent in the 123 rooms and suites. Natural materials, panorama windows and over 200 fireplaces bring the Andermatt mountain landscape into the cosy rooms. However, the real luxury can be found in the generous dimensions. The hotel offers high rooms and lots of space, even the smallest double is 52 square metres. On a culinary level, The Chedi Andermatt offers its guests only the finest: In The Restaurant (14 GaultMillau points) exciting and delicious combinations from Western and Asian cuisine are prepared in four open atelier kitchens. The Japanese Restaurant (1 Michelin Star and 16 Gault-Millau points) is exceptional for the Swiss Alps. Authentic Japanese dishes are prepared by Japanese chefs at the tempura and sushi/sashimi bar. Since it opened in 2013, over a quarter of a million freshly prepared nigiri sushi have passed over the counter, and, according to GaultMillau, the hotel now ranks as one of the best addresses in the Alps. The guests can also get advice from a sake sommelier, a service rarely found in Europe.
There is no question, the enterprise in the Uri Alps is luxurious. In contrast to a number of other mountain hotels, this luxury house does not flaunt, but impresses with its design of Alpine chic and Asian elements.The 2,400 square metre spa and health club with an exclusive sauna area, ten deluxe spa suites, hydrothermal baths, a 35 metre long indoor pool covered by a glass roof and a heated twelve metre long outdoor pool with a view of the magnificent backdrop of the Alps is an additional highlight.
Conclusion: The Chedi was initiated by the visionary investor Samih Sawiris and with its 123 generous rooms and suites has in only five years become one of the forerunners in the international luxury hotel sector, a position that is substantiated by numerous awards. The Chedi Andermatt provides an insight into another world and views of an unforgettable part of Switzerland.
