June 2, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Alpine, Asian, authentic. Ever since its launch at the end of 2013, The Chedi Andermatt’s formula for success has been enthusiastically received. Now it has led to another important Swiss-based award: in his book The 150 Best Hotels in Switzerland, renowned journalist and author Karl Wild has named the 5-star deluxe establishment Switzerland’s Best Holiday Hotel in 2018/19; the SonntagsZeitung newspaper quite simply dubbed the hotel an «Alpine spectacle».

The accolade «Switzerland’s Best Holiday Hotel 2018/19» in Karl Wild’s hospitality ranking is both an honour and a pleasure for The Chedi Andermatt. It confirms that the 5-star deluxe hotel, which already has several awards to its name, has successfully and rightly positioned itself at the top of the Swiss luxury hospitality segment. «Our success lies in the ‹Chedi› spirit and is based on emotions for all the senses, created for our guests on a daily basis,» says General Manager Jean-Yves Blatt.

Unique in every respect

With its 123 elegant rooms and suites, The Chedi Andermatt offers holiday experiences that could not be more luxurious, delighting guests from home and abroad with its unaccustomed yet perfect combination of alpine chic and Asian expression. Located in the heart of the Swiss Alps at an altitude of 1447 metres and imbued with the power and peace of the surrounding mountains, this 5-star deluxe hotel is a destination for guests with a zest for life in search of relaxation in winter and in summer. The Chedi Andermatt combines unique service, immense attention to detail and soothing wellness moments in the 2400 square metre The Spa & Health Club with culinary flights of fancy in The Japanese Restaurant, recipient of one Michelin star, and The Restaurant, recipient of 15 GaultMillau points. It is the perfect mixture of exceptional experiences, pleasurable seduction, architectural expression, flawless harmony and discreet luxury that prompted Karl Wild to arrive at his choice. «The Chedi is the great high-flyer of Switzerland’s luxury holiday hospitality sector: the architecture, facilities, ambience and light effects are phenomenal. The mystical spa is a dream, the service culture world class. No wonder guest figures and revenues are rising by double-digit figures year on year. The centrepiece of Samih Sawiris’s Andermatt tourism project is proving a blessing for the entire region», writes renowned author and journalist Karl Wild about his choice.

Emotions as ultimate luxury

The Chedi Andermatt knows that guests want nothing more than to put everyday life to one side during their holidays and travel home with a backpack full of exceptional memories. «We create moments for all the senses, day in, day out – be it through the location, the design and architecture, the facilities, the entertainment in and around the establishment, our culinary statements or our dynamic, first-class service. The entire The Chedi Andermatt team is responsible for our continuing success, which is why I dedicate this award to everyone who works here. They make the hotel what it is today. I am particularly grateful to proprietor and investor Samih Sawiris, who has made the impossible possible with his vision, his passion and his commitment. All this has helped Andermatt develop into an internationally renowned destination and The Chedi Andermatt into one of the best hotels,» says a delighted Jean-Yves Blatt.

The Chedi Andermatt

Surrounded by the stunning, year-round natural beauty of the Swiss Alps, The Chedi Andermatt nestles elegantly among the traditional ski chalets of Andermatt so characteristic of this timelessly charming village in the Urseren Valley. Designed by renowned architect Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston Architects, the 5-star deluxe hotel, which opened in 2013, perfectly combines Switzerland’s authentic alpine chic with Asian style. Traditional materials such as warm wood and natural stone create an intimate and stylish atmosphere. This is reflected in the 123 spacious guest rooms and suites as well as in the hotel’s extensive facilities. These include: The Restaurant, The Japanese Restaurant, The Chalet (open in winter only), The Bar and Living Room, The Lobby, The Courtyard, The Wine and Cigar Library, and the 2400 square metre The Spa and Health Club. The well-known hotel and gastronomy guide GaultMillau named The Chedi Andermatt Hotel of the Year 2017 and the prestigious hotel ranking publication by Karl Wild has awarded the 5-star deluxe hotel the accolade of «Switzerland’s Best Holiday Hotel 2018/19». Moreover, The Japanese Restaurant was awarded a Michelin star, also in 2017. Further information:
