The Omnia in Zermatt: modern meets traditional in stylish boutique hotel

If you are planning a ski holiday this winter or a hiking holiday in the summer, it’s time to make reservations, especially if you want to get a room in a luxury hotel in Zermatt. The Omnia is one of the few that beautifully blends the traditional with the modern. On the outside it looks like a typical Swiss mountain lodge. But inside, you get contemporary design in spacious rooms and elegant lounges. The hotel is conveniently located in the center of Zermatt, 45 meters above the rooftops of the town. Passing through a tunnel, guests arrive at an elevator rising up through the rock, which brings them to the lobby at 1,600 meters above sea level.

There are 30 rooms including 12 suites, none of which is identical to the other. They vary in their layout and sizes: Queen Size room (24 square meters), Double Deluxe rooms (45 square meters), Suites (70 square meters), Tower Suites (90 square meters) and the OMNIA Roof Suite (110 square meters). All rooms and suites have private balconies. Some of them include fireplaces, elegant baths with bay windows, Jacuzzis and even saunas. All rooms and suites have free Wi-Fi and flat screen TVs.

If you are looking to relax and soothe your aching muscles after a long day skiing or hiking, the hotel’s spa and fitness facilities include a Finnish sauna, caldarium, Turkish bath, massage showers, Flower Steam room, outdoor whirlpool, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, relax room with heated loungers, fitness studio, and massage rooms. The hotel also offers yoga and Pilates sessions.

The hotel has a wonderful 60-seat restaurant with a fireplace that serves modern European cuisine. They even have a vegetarian menu (note: it’s difficult to find decent vegetarian food in Zermatt). After dinner, guests can linger on the sofa in front of the fire, sipping espresso and grappa. Reservations recommended (call +41 27 966 71 71).

Zermatt isn’t just a winter ski destination. In the summer, it’s a lovely place to visit for hiking or just relaxing. Situated at the base of the Matterhorn, it’s a favorite for mountain climbers, too.
