There are luxury ski chalets, and then there are properties that quite simply take your breath away. The Furka Suite at the Chedi Hotel is one of the latter.
Much more than just a high-end place to lay your head while you enjoy a luxury ski holiday, a stay here is an experience in itself.
The Furka Suite is situated in the penthouse spot of The Chedi, a hotel known internationally for its five-star service, fabulous spa and luxe extras. Both the hotel and The Furka Suite itself are created by the renowned designer Jean-Michel Gathy, and this meeting of luxury ski chalet and New York penthouse is a style-lover’s dream. From the stunning pitched ceilings, to the natural stone, warm woods and understatedly stylish soft furnishings, everything is thoughtfully considered, perfectly executed.
The master bedroom with its chapelesque arched ceiling is a stunning space to retreat to at the end of each day, with his and hers dressing areas and little treats such as Acqua di Parma toiletries to ensure you feel thoroughly pampered every minute of your stay. The other two bedrooms are also generously sized and all the bedrooms have handmade Swedish Hastens beds that promise a wonderful night’s sleep.
As well as enjoying access to the Chedi’s spectacular spa, the Furka Suite has its own private spa area too, so you need not even leave the comfort of your chalet to relax in the sauna, Turkish bath or Jacuzzi.
The Furka’s lovely communal living spaces make for the perfect backdrop to an evening catching up with friends and family and sharing stories of the day’s events on the slopes. Comfortable armchairs are gathered around a central circular fireplace and nearby an L-shaped sofa is piled high with throws and cushions to cosy up with. After dinner in the romantic dark-wood dining room, take your drinks out onto the mountain view balcony and peek through snowy pines to the enormous mountain beyond over a glass or two of the chalet’s fine wines.
