Our luxury hotels come in all shapes and sizes, and a variety of styles. Here we have selected our top 5 for those who prefer contemporary luxury and cutting edge design...
1. The Chedi Andermatt *****
The Chedi Andermatt opened its doors in December 2013 and has quickly established itself as one of the leading luxury hotels in the Alps.
Part of the GHM Group - the Asian brand synonymous with style, service and serenity - the Chedi combines innovative modern architecture with elegant Alpine charm. Its extensive facilities include two restaurants, an après-ski bar and a magnificent spa with indoor/outdoor pool.
The sumptuous suites are beautifully furnished, and guests are offered every possible comfort and convenience, as you would expect in a hotel of this stature.

2. W Verbier *****
Another iconic hotel brand, the W, has made a first foray into the Alpine scene with its flagship property in Verbier, which opened at the start of the 2013-14 winter season.
Sitting in an unbeatable ski-to-the-door location at the foot of the Médran lift, the W Verbier’s traditional chalet-style facade hides a more contemporary interior, with all the unbridled luxuries you would expect of the W label.
The clever addition of just enough traditional Alpine touches amongst the urban chic, combined with the hotel’s fantastic facilities and attentive service provided by its enthusiastic staff, have already made the W Verbier a huge hit.
From £2165 pp (incl. flights, transfers and 7 nights B&B)
