Best luxury hotels in Zermatt 2021

At the foot of the Matterhorn lies Zermatt, a beautiful and peaceful idyll, in part thanks to its car-free policy. In winter, it is a snow lover’s paradise with 360 km of slopes, the longest slopes in Europe and the Zermatt Snowpark for freestylers and snowboarders (the Olympians are known to train in the park ). And it’s popular among the year-round skiing community, because of its elevated location, allowing summer skiing. Walking, biking, rock climbing, ice skating, lake swimming, paragliding and off-piste heli-skiing are some of the additional activities available here. But where to stay to visit Zermatt? Here is our selection of the best hotels.

Omnia Zermatt

Imagine sitting in a hot marble hot tub, gazing at a majestic mountain as the steam rises, indulging in treatments in an elegant spa, dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant and sipping cocktails at a Cavern Club , before retiring to an oversized and very comfortable bed in a refined room. This is the Omnia. It has an open-air terrace, a swimming pool that extends both inside and outside the building, a well-stocked library, in-house artistic chefs, a roaring fire, a service electric shuttle and only 30 rooms. Designed in a modern American style, the Omnia has a very grown-up feel that’s perfect for couples.

Riffelalp station 2222m

The name gives a pretty clear clue, but it is in fact the tallest luxury hotel in Europe. So much so that the station is not accessible by car. Instead, guests take the train to the property, passing breathtaking views along the way. Once installed, visitors can enjoy direct ski-to-door access to the slopes. Ski rental is available on site, as well as swimming pools, a tennis court, billiards, bowling and activities for children. The decor is very modern on chalet life, although the building dates back to the 19th century.

Cervo mountain station

Redesigned by multi-award winning studio Dreimeta and fully renovated in 2020, Cervo Mountain Resort has an airy and modern New England feel. Its redesign included major improvements in sustainability – a ground source heat pump allows the building to generate almost all of its own electricity for heat and hot water. The main restaurant, Bazaar, focuses on plant-based dishes and revolves around the theme of Eastern Markets. Italian dishes can be ordered at Madre Nostra, while the third restaurant, Ferdinand, serves local cuisine. Choose between three types of accommodation at this resort: The Huntsman, The Nomad and The Alpinist. Its Ashram Spa offers meditation sessions, onsen baths, massages and treatments.

Monte Rosa Hotel

It is the oldest hotel in town, a comfortable Victorian building, once a family home, with a long history. And this past had an impact on the atmosphere; it does indeed feel simple, in a very high end way. The boutique property has 41 rooms, and while there is no on-site spa (its absence pleasantly contributes to the country house atmosphere), guests can use the facilities at the nearby Mont Cervin Palace. Yet the hotel’s Belle-Époque Brasserie, with its stucco ceilings and chandeliers, creates a contrasting sense of vintage grandeur. The lush green gardens and pretty planters make the exterior particularly picturesque and just as suitable for summer visits as it is during the peak winter season.
