A beautiful combination of traditional and modern, Chalet Banja provides a wonderful base for a luxury ski holiday in Zermatt for up to eight guests.

Careful thought has gone into the design, with bold furniture pieces, antiques and artworks creating a stylish and eclectic look. There are plenty of nods to tradition here, with the typically Alpine design of the building, yet the traditional is complemented by contemporary style, in the light woods and slate used throughout, and the sleek silhouettes of the fixtures and furnishings. Natural light floods into the interiors from the roof lights and floor-to-ceiling windows during the day and by night, the rooms are lit by cosy chandeliers and statement lighting.

The huge living and dining space is centred around a large wood-burning fireplace, providing a warm an cosy atmosphere. An L-shaped sofa and casual seating gathered around the fire is the ideal spot to relax together before dinner, aperitifs in hand, or settle down in the armchair by the bookshelf for some quiet reading time alone. The dining table in the kitchen, provides the perfect place for your party to gather and enjoy leisurely meals as well as the opportunity to chat to your chef as he prepares your meal. Additionally its a great spot to have a peaceful breakfast while enjoying the view.

On snowy afternoons, pad down to the wellness area to maintain your fitness levels in the gym area or alternate a few lengths in the swimming pool with sitting poolside, good book in hand, on luxury loungers and maybe a sauna or two. You can take life at Banja as slow as you like – there’s a definite emphasis on relaxation here.

Before you turn in for the night, to comfy bedrooms all equipped with cable TV and spa-style ensuites, pop out onto Banja’s terraces to take in the mountain air and see the Matterhorn at its very best, looming out of the darkness under the stars.

In the evenings, your chef will serve aperitifs and canapés while preparing a four-course dinner for you all. A children’s tea can be provided for families, and your chef will be happy to discuss any dietary needs your party has and create menus that work around them.

House wines are served with your evening meal and beers, spirits, soft drinks and mixers, as well as hot drinks, are available.

If you’re eating out, the Waldhaus restaurant is just across the road from the chalet, but Zermatt is renowned for its diverse food scene.
