Enveloped in dramatic scenery, and boasting natural, year-round beauty, this iconic landmark and its surrounding Alpine landscape are enough to entice anyone to pack their bags.
While a stay in the Swiss Alps means spending plenty of time exploring the great outdoors, from skiing the snow-covered terrain to exploring the charming villages on foot, savouring regional food specialties and immersing yourself in all the local cultural gems—there’s no question that a plush bed, warm tub and roaring fireplace to come home to are a major bonus. To round out an unforgettable trip, The Chedi Andermatt beckons with three iconic suites that pay homage to distinctive landmarks around the region, immersing guests in more history and culture as you relax and put up your feet at the end of a long day.
The Gotthard Suite
Tipping its hat to the heart of the Andermatt, The Gotthard Suite is surrounded by breath-taking views of Saint-Gotthard Massif. This mighty mountain encompasses no less than five ski resorts, with 103 kilometres of snow-covered slopes. Spend the day hitting the powder then relax in your suite at night, the largest and most lavish of all the accommodations at The Chedi Andermatt.
With five bedrooms and five bathrooms nestled within the 350-square-metre suite, the incredible residence is the ultimate home away from home, providing everything you need for a truly once-in-a-lifetime stay. A soaring gabled roof contributes to the sense of grandeur, while the roaring freestanding fireplace evokes warm and cosy mountain living. Two large children’s rooms offer versatility for families of different sizes and ages, while full-length panoramic windows and an expansive terrace allow you to fully soak in the beauty and majesty of the iconic Saint-Gotthard Massif right outside your window.
The Furka Suite
An important connection bridging the Rhone and the Rhine Valleys, The Furka Pass has a long and storied history, and has even appeared on the silver screen in a thrilling car chase scene in the 1964 James Bond film, “Goldfinger,” starring Sean Connery. The steep pass is completely snow-covered in winter but come summertime and the pass welcomes thousands of people to cross via bicycles, cars, motorbikes or camper vans. Offering breath-taking scenery and an adrenaline-pumping journey via its myriad hairpin turns, the Furka is undoubtedly one of the most idyllic and impressive Alpine crossings in the world.
Paying tribute to this stalwart of the region is The Furka Suite within The Chedi Andermatt, a stylish private residence complete with three spacious bedrooms and a private spa. Covering 330 square metres of space, the fashionable retreat boasts a large balcony, elegant dining area, kitchen, and expansive living area with a cosy fireplace for warming up at the end of a day of trekking. Feel your worries melt away in the sauna and Jacuzzi, then wind down with the fully stocked wine cabinet, an HDTV for curling up with a movie, and Acqua di Parma toiletries in the bathroom for the complete five-star treatment. Accented with Asian décor and embracing a colour palette of black, deep red and chocolate hues, the luxurious suite is ideal for a romantic retreat away with your significant other, or a stress-free family vacation with all your needs and preferences catered to.
The Gemmstock Suite
Rounding out the trio of unique accommodations at The Chedi Andermatt paying homage to the region’s history and heritage is The Gemmstock Suite, named after the famous mountain. Rising 3,000 metres above sea level, the Gemmstock overlooks Andermatt and offers a paradise for powder pros and adrenaline junkies, with blankets of deep powder from November through to May.

Hospitality that Makes a Difference

Exemplifying an unparalleled level of customer service, no request is too small or too big for the team to handle. “We had one famous fashion designer who demanded a very special make-up table which we had to specifically order and bring up from Zurich, as a specific type of lighting for the makeup was needed,” recalls one member of the guest services team. “In addition to our dog and pet amenities, we even have guests on a regular basis who want grass to be laid out on the balcony, especially in winter. Whatever we can do to make our guests more comfortable, we will do it, no questions asked.”
