Perched on a rock high above Zermatt, it's easy to feel at one with the elements here, thanks to the elevated location, a dramatic mountainous backdrop, and lower floors cut right into the rock. It's a bit like staying in the wilderness of the mountains, but with all the amenities at your doorstep—The Omnia is easily accessed via tunnel and lift from the village center. And that's not to mention the amazing views of Zermatt from the bedroom windows. The hotel describes itself as a "contemporary interpretation of the traditional mountain lodge"; to me, it's an upmarket, ultra-modern mountain retreat, with stylish on-trend designer fittings and a gorgeous indoor-outdoor infinity pool.
