This beautiful boutique hotel near the gondola oozes style, from the sleek slate-floored reception and cozy bar with its Chesterfield sofas, to the indulgently spacious suites, each named after the elements of air, earth, fire, or water. The hallmark of the Firefly is its artful mélange of materials—mainly wood, glass, and steel. In the rooms, you'll find chic modernist furnishings interspersed with ancient timber features, fully equipped kitchens, ultra-cool bathrooms with granite baths, log fireplaces (in nine of the suites), and stunning views of the Matterhorn. The "skylight loft" suite is augmented with a whirlpool and sauna. There is no restaurant, but a lavish breakfast is served in-room. The spa is striking for its granite-hewn steam rooms and its stainless steel indoor pool, colored by shifting patterns of underwater lights.
