Asia-based luxury hotel and resort operator GHM
is pledging the “ultimate in bespoke luxury” in the picture
postcard surroundings of the Swiss Alps with its latest
development, The Chedi Andermatt.
In the small town of Andermatt at the crossroads
between southern, northern and eastern Switzerland, the year-round
holiday destination is blessed with stunning natural scenery and
an abundance of outdoor recreational pursuits.
A groundbreaking on 31 August 2010 marked the
beginning of construction on GHM’s first property in Switzerland,
with opening scheduled for 2013.
The Chedi Andermatt will feature 50 hotel
guest rooms, 64 apartments and six maisonette penthouses, all
featuring large balconies and fireplaces.
48 exclusive residences of one and two-bedroom apartments and
lofts with their own private Club Lounge and Library will be
available for purchase.
The development will
include two gourmet restaurants, a lounge, a wine and
cigar room, and an après ski bar. There will also be a
spa and state-of-the-art wellness centre.
With access to a vast skiing area, additional facilities include a
large indoor pool linked to an outdoor pool with sun terraces, a
courtyard featuring a reflective pond which will be converted to
an ice rink in the winter, a Ski Lounge for purchase or rental of
ski equipment, and a boutique.
In winter, the
nearby Gemsstock is a dream for skiers at almost 3,000 metres
above sea level. Andermatt’s ski area is being linked to
neighbouring Sedrun, which will create a total of 130 kilometers
In summer the region is perfect for
hiking, climbing and mountain biking. Other attractions include
horse riding, fishing, tennis and hand-gliding. A dozen golf
courses are in the surrounding area, including a new ecologically
developed 18-hole championship course adjoining the village.
Andermatt is four hours by road from Stuttgart or
Munich, two hours from Milan and 90 minutes from Zurich.
