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 2018/2019; 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.
