The Chedi comes to Andermatt

by Fraser Wilkin, 24th August 2013

In one of the biggest and most exciting hotel projects the Alps have seen in years, the Chedi Andermatt will finally open its doors to guests in December 2013 – and in doing so will not only become the first Chedi hotel to open in the Alps, but also the first in Europe.

 

Designed by award winning international architects Denniston, the Chedi Andermatt combines traditional Alpine elegance with innovative modern architecture betraying subtle Asian influences. It boasts 106 sumptuous rooms and suites, an après-ski bar, two restaurants with open plan kitchen, a spa, a health club and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.

 

The scale and ambition of the Chedi Andermatt project may be vast, but it is only one part of Andermatt’s overall redevelopment that will eventually include six luxury hotels, 490 new luxury apartments, 25 private villas, numerous shops, restaurants and an 18-hole golf course. In short, an entire new mini-resort is under construction with strict environmental and aesthetic controls designed to ensure a seamless blend between the old village and the new.

There are also grand plans for the ski area, starting on the Nätschen side, where for 2013-14 a new lift will allow you to ski all the way to Sedrun. For the time being you will still have to return to Andermatt by mountain railway, but by 2014-15 the link should be open in both directions. Other lifts are also planned for the area that will greatly increase the extent and variety of skiing on offer.
