Fodor's Expert Review Omnia Mountain Lodge

Auf dem Fels, Zermatt, Valais, 3920, Switzerland Fodor's Choice

This sophisticated glass-and-steel hotel on the hillside above the Kirchplatz not only has great service and superlative town and mountain views, but is an engineering marvel, a sleek standout in a village of traditional hoteliers. You'll feel like James Bond as a private tunnel leads through a cave to the secure elevator, where you are whisked to the contemporary lobby, decorated invitingly with a stone fireplace and modern furnishings. With great Matterhorn vistas from decks and balconies, some of the luxurious guest rooms also have fireplaces, jetted tubs, and saunas, and all have a complimentary snifter of Scotch. The elegant restaurant offers tasting menus (including a vegetarian option) with avant-garde takes on Swiss dishes, such as "Birchermüesli" made of foie gras; the bar is an equally sleek place to sip cocktails. Chill out in the wellness area's indoor-outdoor pool, multiple steam rooms, sauna, and outdoor whirlpool with Matterhorn views, perfect for relaxing post-ski or hike.
