Andermatt, SWITZERLAND – World leading tailor-made luxury travel specialist, Abercrombie & Kent have partnered with GHM Hotels’ The Chedi Andermatt and The Chedi Muscat to offer an exclusive ‘Ski & Beach Retreat’ package. Perfect for couples seeking a one-of-a-kind getaway, guests can enjoy two contrasting destinations with an enchanting alpine adventure in the charming Swiss village of Andermatt, followed by a relaxing sun-drenched break by an Arabian shoreline.
Starting with a limousine transfer to one of Switzerland’s most desirable hotels, guests will begin their stay at The Chedi Andermatt. The journey from Zurich Airport into the heart of the Urseren Valley sets the scene for the stunning natural beauty that surrounds this uniqueoo hotel, where guaranteed snowfall in winter creates optimum conditions for thrill-seeking skiers and snowboarders. Guests can take advantage of the hotel’s unique Ski Butler service, where professionals disclose insider secrets for finding the perfect powder and all the hard work is taken care of, with pre-heated snow boots and a hot chocolate ready to get them going for the day.
As well as the multitude of snow sports on offer, guests can indulge in a visit to the 2,400-metre award-winning spa and fitness centre, with mountain ritual massages using Swiss marmot oil and body sculpting yoga sessions on offer along with an temperature-controlled outdoor pool. To wind down after an active day, guests can relax in the spa’s Finnish saunas, head to the Wine & Cigar Library or, with more fireplaces than rooms; just simply snuggle up and enjoy the unique ambiance of The Chedi Andermatt. Exquisite cuisine can also be enjoyed in one of the four dining options, with delicious dishes including cold cuts cooked to perfection and fresh sushi in addition to the ultimate indulgence; the hotel’s impressive five-metre high cheese cellar.
From the snow-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps, guests will be transported across the globe to the calm waters of the Arabian Sea, offering a distinctly different experience, yet maintaining subtle luxury of equal measure. Oman’s most exclusive hotel, The Chedi Muscat, is a modern oasis that is perfectly positioned along Oman’s captivating coastline and set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Al Hajar Mountains. Boasting three outdoor temperature-controlled pools, including the longest pool in Arabia and an award-winning spa with 13-suites offering Indian Ayurveda, Balinese therapies and indigenous rituals, The Chedi Muscat provides the ultimate luxury escape.
Also home to six world-class restaurants and two lounges, guests can indulge in the finest cuisines and wines from across the globe, including such delicacies as Omani long-shell oysters and Iranian caviar. For those looking to discover Oman’s rich cultural heritage, the resort offers bespoke tours and for golf-enthusiasts, there are three 18-hole golf courses that offer spectacular scenery. To end the day, guests can unwind on the plush cushions of the aromatic Shisha Lounge in the Arabian Courtyard before retiring to the elegant bedroom suites with breath-taking views of the Gulf of Oman and 21-acre palm-fringed gardens.
