Hotel Matthiol: cozy modern luxury in Zermatt

Looking for a chic, modern ski hotel for your ski or hiking holiday? Check out the Hotel Matthiol, an intimate boutique hotel  full of innovative design and constructed of wood and stone that has both modern and traditional accents. With only 10 rooms and 13 suites, Hotel Matthiol is perfect for both families and style-conscious individuals seeking relaxation. All rooms have the comforts of a country home and are furnished with luxurious details such as bathtubs that are partly integrated into the living area to create a sophisticated atmosphere.  The Master Suite is extra special with two balconies, a long modern chimney,  a bathtub fit for two, and a cozy sofa. Beds are large and comfortable. Because the rooms are well insulated, you do not hear noises from outside the hotel.

After spending the day exploring the natural surroundings, you can satisfy your appetite at the hotel’s restaurant that is a mix of local and Mediterranean cuisine. Produce is exclusively market-fresh. Their well-known chef Benjamin Petrovic will serve only the finest home-made meals. For breakfast, there is a buffet that presents guests with a variety of fresh fruit, muesli, charcuterie, cheeses, breads, juices and yogurt. If you do want an omelette or cooked eggs, the staff can also make those for you. Furthermore, following British tradition, Hotel Matthiol celebrates teatime with a range of 17 specialty teas, home-made pastries and delicious sandwiches.

If you spent the day skiing or bundled up walking around town, you can take off your snowshoes and relax at the hotel spa and enjoy complete indulgence with a massage.  Finish the evening at the leather-trimmed bar sipping tempting cocktails to successfully end a perfect day.

This is truly the perfect destination if you are looking to rejuvenate your lungs with some extra fresh air. If you are hiking in the summer, Matthiol is an ideal base from which to begin long walks. Many hiking trails wind their way past the hotel, only a few metres away.
