A stylish Alpine retreat in the heart of the Swiss mountain village Verbier
For adventurers and winter sports enthusiasts, there is no better place to celebrate vacation than the Experimental Chalet in Verbier. The unique design hotel is located high up in the Swiss mountains and offers superior cocktails and a hefty dose of seventies glamour.
Experimental Chalet is situated in the middle of the popular ski resort Verbier and is the ideal starting point for fantastic tours through the area, Les Quatre Vallées. In winter, with skis strapped on and in summer, by mountain bike or with hiking boots on. If you prefer a greater adrenaline rush, why not go skydiving or paragliding over the mountain peaks?
You can then unwind at your super comfortable accommodation. This luxury Alpine retreat is designed by Fabrizio Casiraghi and is praised for its modern and authentic style, its unique 70s twist and the high comfort that can be found in the beautiful spacious rooms and suites as well as in the wellness center on the ground floor.
In the restaurant of this designed hotel, acclaimed chef Gregory Marchand gives a contemporary twist to the traditional Swiss Alpine kitchen and reinterprets old classics such as rösti and tartiflette. The food here is truly fantastic. The dishes are incredibly tasty and are made with the best ingredients from the area: from reblochon from Savoy to freshly caught trout from the mountain lakes. Also, the breakfast with homemade granola, waffles, pie and sweet and savoury sandwiches is an event every morning!
The bar of this unique Alpine hotel is the central point of the hotel and is the place for a cozy après-ski. Recommended: when you are here, go for ‘The Chalet’, the signature cocktail with peach and champagne or have one of the bartenders prepare a delicious drink for you; you can't get better ones anywhere else! After cocktails, if you're still in the mood for a good party, head off to the Farm Club. In Verbier's most popular hotspot, the jet set likes to flaunt and the roof has been lifted off for 40 years!
Experimental Chalet is a part of the Experimental Group. A group made up of three childhood friends who have many successful projects worldwide, such as Experimental Beach Club in Ibiza, popular wine bars in New York, London, and various restaurants, cocktail bars, and hotels in Paris. At the end of 2018, the boutique hotel Experimental Chalet was opened in one of the most famous ski resorts in Switzerland.
Rooms with a modern Alpine style
Experimental Chalet has a total of 39 comfortable rooms and suites with beautiful, panoramic views of the surrounding peaks of Mont Blanc. The rooms are stylishly and minimally decorated by Milanese architect Fabrizio Casiraghi in a modern Alpine style. Moreover, they are also super comfortable. They have nice facilities, such as a king size bed to dream away in and a well-stocked minibar with Experimental cocktails. And some even have a terrace with a jacuzzi!
Verbier in the summer and winter
Experimental Chalet is located in the town of Verbier. The most cosmopolitan ski resort in Wallis, it offers a unique panoramic view over the Combins and Mont Blanc mountain ranges and is extremely popular among winter sports enthusiasts and other lovers of adventurous outdoor sports. In the summer, cyclists and hikers seize their opportunity in this beautiful area and that's not so surprising: there is more than 500 kilometers of hiking trail in this area and there are also plenty of bike routes.
Relax, rest, unwind
Are you ready to relax after an active day outdoors? Then wander off to the wellness center on the ground floor of the hotel. Here you can let your stiff muscles unwind and rebalance your body and mind. Treat yourself with a delightful massage or treatment and pay a visit to the sauna and the hamam. If you're feeling pleasantly drowsy at the end, lay down on one of the loungers and dream away with the breathtaking mountain scenery in the background.
The Experimental Chalet is located in Verbier, the hotspot for international winter sports enthusiasts. Verbier is the largest and most chic village of Les Quatre Vallées, has numerous amenities and is a beautiful winter sports area.
