GHM Scales Heights with Chedi Andermatt Debut
URI, Switzerland — GHM, the hospitality management group that pioneered some of Asia’s top luxury hotels and beach resorts, this week announced that its first ski resort is on track for a Winter 2013/2014 opening in Uri, Switzerland.
Together with GHM (http://www.ghmhotels.com/
Two gourmet restaurants, indoor and outdoor swimming pool and a unique spa and wellness centre are a few of the features of the soon-to-open luxury hotel. In particular, The Chedi Andermatt will provide holidaymakers with a holistic ski experience – from a dedicated ski living room to services by a team of ski butlers. The facilities and amenities of The Chedi Andermatt are set to raise the standard for travel and rival the offerings of any ski resort in Switzerland.
Renowned as a pioneer of properties in previously unheralded travel destinations, GHM expects the opening of The Chedi Andermatt to pave the way for a revival of interest in the quiet Alpine village.
“The Chedi Andermatt will be the first GHM property to debut in the group’s third decade,” said GHM President Hans R. Jenni. “Our goal is an exclusive, modern hotel that celebrates the glory days of Swiss hospitality and looks every bit as breath-taking as the surrounding scenery.”
Set at an altitude of 1,440 metres between the peaks of Gemmstock and Naetschen, The Chedi lies within walking distance of Andermatt’s picturesque old town in the majestic Lepontine Alps. The hotel is 90 minutes by train from the cities of Zurich and Lucerne, and is two hours by train from Milan.
As a part of the project’s sustainability commitments, The Chedi Andermatt was built to MINERGIE Swiss quality standards, with materials and labour sourced locally.
Established in 1992, GHM (http://www.ghmhotels.com/
Each GHM property is an original. A symbiotic relationship between the hotel and the local culture enables GHM to provide guests with a genuine, close-up experience of the best each destination has to offer. The signature GHM style melds contemporary interpretations of Asian designs and distinctive local touches to create inspired, memorable spaces.
