Switzerland - The Chedi Andermatt
Awarded once again
The resort is tempting and inspiring by being very different

Gault & Millau named 5-star deluxe The Chedi Andermatt its 2017 Hotel of the Year. This was followed by Karl Wild’s famous hotel ranking awarding it “Best Holiday Hotel 2018/19”.

Alpine chic combined with finest Asian cuisine and pleasures of a unique Swiss mountain experience make for a winning combination. Managed by General Manager Jean-Yves Blatt, Maître Hôtelier, the resort is tempting and inspiring by being very different.

The differences and highlights include guests experiencing the chefs’ work first hand by looking into the four theatre kitchens; a five-metre high glass cheese cellar; an outstanding sushi and sashimi bar; a tempura counter; the largest selection of sake in the Alps.
