Riffelalp Resort 2222m

Riffelalp, Zermatt, Valais, 3920, Switzerland

Sitting at 7,290 feet amid open fields and dense forests, this mountaintop option has direct views of the Matterhorn—especially breathtaking in the orange glow of early morning. Guest rooms have enchantingly stylish Heidi-esque woodwork, rich fabrics, sumptuous sofas, and whirlpool tubs. Dining options within the Riffelalp range from a wood-paneled restaurant and a stone-trimmed tavern to a terrace. Bliss out with chilling footbaths and organic saunas in the spa, which is crowned by an indoor pool that is a whirlpool extravaganza and an outdoor pool that is Europe's highest.
