The Chedi Andermatt hotel is situated at 1,447 metres above sea level in Andermatt between the Oberalp, St. Gotthard and Furka pass. Captivating and striking in its otherness, this luxury hotel offers an extraordinary blend of Swiss Alpine chic and Asian Zen. Glossy Alpine wood, smooth leather sofas, over 200 fireplaces and numerous panorama windows offer a warm and cosy spot to linger awhile. This perfect harmony bears the signature of star architect Jean-Michel Gathy (the most influential architect of luxury hotels) and was planned and designed by renowned architecture firm Denniston International Architects & Planners Ltd.
It is a 70-minute drive from Zurich, or if you prefer, two hours by train.
The hotel is right opposite the station at one end of Andermatt’s main street, which has a handful of bakeries, bars, hotels, restaurants and handicraft shops in place of glitz and glam. Only 15 minutes walk from the golf course and two from the Nätschen gondola connecting the Andermatt and Sedrun ski areas. The Gemsstock gondola is just a few minutes away by chauffeured ski bus.
The Chedi Andermatt review
The hotel is arrestingly handsome, it is a chalet-like resort.
With more than 200 fireplaces and numerous panorama, windows offer a warm and cosy spot to linger awhile, offering 123 elegant rooms and suites, award-winning restaurants and bars and a spa that is unique in Switzerland – an oasis of calm and relaxation.
The Chedi Andermatt has been named Hotel of the Year 2017 by the renowned restaurant guide Gault & Millau and is one of the best hotels in Europe and awarded the “Spa and Health Club” winner in 2020 by World Luxury Hotel.
Granite and dark woods mirror the jagged flank that backs the hotel, making The Chedi’s nine towering chalets with slatted double façades blend into the landscape. Thanks to soft-focus-filter-like lighting, a warm palette of browns and the fireplace-warmed spaces full of armchairs and fur cushions, the mood is intimate despite the five-metre ceilings and cavernous corridors. It’s a mix of a mountain retreat with Asian influences.
Rooms at The Chedi Andermatt
The Chedi Andermatt 5-star hotel offers the following room types:
Deluxe Rooms which are 52 to 55 square meters in size. You are greeted by traditional Alpine woods, your own fireplace and natural stone that ensure a warm atmosphere. Murals, inspired in part by the seventeenth-century European master of the art Peter Paul Rubens, and wood panelling with sunk-in bronze lamps behind the bed are also unique focal points. Guests who prefer to enjoy the world outside will naturally gaze through the large picture windows that may face the Urseren Valley, the Gemsstock Mountain, the Nätschen Mountain or the Schöllenen Gorge.
Grand Deluxe Room
Grand Deluxe Rooms are 55 square meters in size, and situated on the top floors of The Chedi Andermatt and are compelling thanks to their spaciousness and view of the impressive mountain world around Andermatt. Traditional Alpine woods, soft leather armchairs and sofas as well as warm natural stone with Asian flair skillfully exude stylish calm and luxury. The individual, ingeniously placed fireplace – that can be enjoyed either from inside or from the terrace – creates a cosy atmosphere you will love.
Warm Alpine woods, soft textural touches and an abundance of natural light in our Junior Deluxe Suites create a luxurious and at the same time intimate atmosphere. The spaciousness of the Junior Deluxe Suites (90 m2 / 970 sq ft) offers plenty of scope for winding down from the toils of the day. Take a look outside through the picture windows and soak up the view – depending on the location of your Junior Deluxe Suite – of the Urseren Valley or the Nätschen Mountain.
Families, in particular, will feel at home in our Deluxe Suites. The Deluxe Suites offer 110 square meters of ideally planned space and are thus the perfect place to spend time with the entire family. They feature a stylish seating area as well as an extensive living area inviting you to linger and play. This lavish space oozes a sense of luxurious calm and allows you to just enjoy being together among the traditional Alpine woods, warm natural stone or snuggled up in fluffy Cashmere blankets. Depending on where your Deluxe Suite is located, the picture windows may afford you a view of the Urseren Valley, the Gemsstock Mountain, the Nätschen Mountain or the Schöllenen Gorge. The impressive mountain world is not the only thing that will capture your heart. Some Deluxe Suites also feature a glass wine cabinet that will be stocked for your pleasure – a highlight indeed for wine lovers.
Grand Deluxe Suite
The Grand Deluxe Suites are located in the adjacent ‘The Chedi Residences’ wing which you can access using an attractively styled interior passageway. With the charm of a private ski chalet – with spacious balconies and a direct view of the impressive peaks of the Gemsstock and Nätschen Mountains – we guarantee you will enjoy a holiday which you can live at your own personal pace. Let us take care of the perfect luxurious framework.
Live your personal dream in 134 square meters in the Gemsstock Suite. Indulge yourself and enjoy the wonderful view of the Gemsstock peak that rises up high into the clouds. Sit in front of the fireplace, read a book, enjoy a glass of wine and immerse yourself in the unique inspiring calm of The Chedi Andermatt.
At 330 square meters and with three spacious bedrooms, the Furka Suite (virtual tour) offers pure calm and luxury. One of the bedrooms is on the second floor, directly under a rounded panelled wood ceiling: the embodiment of a cocoon with a view of the mountain world around. The Furka Suite has an attractive living and dining area with an eye-catching elegant fireplace as well as its own kitchen, and thus unites the comfort of a luxury hotel in the mountains with the private feel of your own chalet.
The Furka Suite also has its own beautiful private spa. At 330 square metres and with three spacious bedrooms, the Furka Suite offers pure calm and luxury.
With its five bedrooms, five bathrooms and 350 square metres of floor space over two floors, the Gotthard Suite is a luxurious family paradise. Experience an unforgettable stay with your loved ones directly under the expansive gabled roof. High-quality natural materials and the elegant, freestanding fireplace in the living area convey an atmosphere of warmth and comfort as well as a spacious ambience. Upstairs, the two large children’s rooms have bunk-style sleeping alcoves to make your little ones feel instantly at home. The luxurious decor is complemented by an open-plan living and dining area, which includes a modern kitchen. The full-length panoramic windows and the expansive terrace let you enjoy a breathtaking view of the Gotthard massif.
Bedrooms at The Chedi Andermatt manage to strike the same balance, being both lavish and practical: the hotel has invested a jaw-dropping 50,000 Swiss Francs per room in Hästens mattresses to ensure that every guest gets the perfect night’s sleep. Large bathtubs, heated natural stone floors and separate rain showers entice you to enjoy moments of sensuousness and relaxation. Rainfall showers and free-standing bathtubs are colossal and come equipped with an array of Aqua di Parma toiletries to ensure that guests smell as chic as their surroundings. Glass-fronted fireplaces continue the inviting, warm feel of the lobby area, while the expansive balcony is the ideal place to gaze at the postcard-perfect landscape while sipping on one of minibar drinks that are included in the room rate.
The SPA review
In keeping with the hotel’s congenial vibe, the SPA isn’t hidden away in sealed-off quarters: instead, the impressive 35m pool extends beyond the lounge bar, where the warm glow of the log fires blends almost imperceptibly into the reflection of the soft lighting that ripples on the surface of the water. The private pool with its seamless transition between indoors and out; access to in-house guests and residence owners only. You will spend quality time there, together or browse through your holiday reading on the plush daybeds and sofas while the fire crackles in the rich Alpine wood relaxation lounge. Watch snowfall on the soaring pine trees just beyond our elegant 35-metre indoor pool and gaze at the Swiss peaks in the distance. Dive in for a rigorous aquatic workout or relax over tapas and classic cocktails. In the summer, you can sunbathe next to our 12-metre outdoor pool.
That’s just the beginning: the 2400m² spa area features further pools outside and downstairs, as well as multiple saunas and steam rooms, a state-of-the-art gym and a yoga studio.

The Chedi Andermatt review
Located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, Andermatt is the perfect destination for nature lovers and outdoor sports enthusiasts, whatever the time of year. In winter, the SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun, central Switzerland’s largest ski resort, is the perfect place for cross-country skiing, winter hiking and snowshoeing.
We have been to Chedi several times and are looking to forward to going again.
The rooms are very spacious with two coatrooms. The first coatroom is located by the entrance of the room for your ski clothes/ sports clothes, and the other one by the bathroom where you can get dressed. Great shower, etc. The beds are just amazing!!! (from Hästens). We decided to have a few drinks at the lobby of the Chedi, it was such exclusive yet very welcoming and friendly to everyone. The hotel is beautiful with a unique architecture that makes it cosy and elegant. The staff are all very well trained and friendly, taking their job seriously and serving at best.
We would recommend to always explicitly request a room in the main building facing the courtyard. The other side is looking onto the parking.
Good room infotainment, light, temperature, chimney, music settings all can be managed through the iPad in the room.
Food to recommend is the spicy beef salad as well as the pepper beef.
