Welcome to a new blog post! This time I am taking you to Zermatt more particularly to THE OMNIA Zermatt! Zermatt is #myhappyplace and I love going there at any season, day, year, moment! Please do not be afraid to go there during Summer… it is even better!
So imagine going to the most awarded hotel in Zermatt: THE OMNIA. Several awards under their pocket such as #1 Swiss Top Hotel, Switzerland’s Leading Hotel Boutique 2018, Gold welcoming medal and more. I was very lucky to spend 2 nights there with Emmanuel last April.
This is probably what blew most my mind… never in my life I have had this type of pre-arrival service.
About 1-2 weeks before arriving I received an email from the front-office personnel suggesting some restaurants to book during our stay and offering the service of booking them too. I replied with some suggestions and before I could realise I sent the email I had a reply :O ! Suggesting that we should do this, and that they had already book that and other very useful tips… I was like just in AWE.
All our restaurant bookings where taken care of the front-office and also a shuttle arranged for our arrival (we arrived by train from Geneva) with the exact hours. Of course I had a delay on my train and I arrived 1-2 hours later and immediately I informed them and everything was organised for the new schedule… just impressive.
I have to say as a TIP that if you are going to Zermatt you MUST book all your restaurants in advance, because everyone does that and it is important to do it to make sure you have lunch on the slopes.. with a terrace and a Matterhorn view (we are all there for the Matterhorn arent we?
One thing that stroke me from the hotel is the design; everything screams design in it’s purest form. The lobby, the library, the structure inside the rocks, the elevators that seem to reach the sky, the amazing infinity pool at the SPA and the jacuzzi perfectly located to enjoy the Matterhorn after a long day of skiing.
There are 30 rooms including 12 suites. All the rooms have a sleek designs that give complete spotlight to the scenery around and the magnificence of the mountains.
The restaurant are and the terrace have clean lines, everything is straight and geometrical. For me these type of interiors give sense of peace since your brain is not distracted with too many things, but concentrates in the essential.
I am not sure where to start… I almost cried (not joking) when I saw the room. I felt so lucky and blessed to be there, not only in this amazing suite that was as big (if not bigger) than our apartment, the sun was setting on the Matterhorn, I was at my favourite place on earth, I was doing what I love most… creating content, photos and videos and it was just a beautiful moment… gasp
The suite is HUGE, we had a living room and then a bathroom in the entrance and then WHAT?! another bathroom inside the bedroom…. I know crazy. All rooms have a balcony, and my favorite amenities of all times … AESOP, so luscious I love it!
There were some delicious muffins waiting for us, and some bourbon too, because why not?! and I just stared for ages at our view.
Ah and I woke up at like 5am to catch the sunrise and take 2M photos!
Lovely detail ♥ – The rooms & suites have no numbers… they are only letters. Making you feel like one of a kind, not just a room number ♥
We had of course to try the gourmet menu at The Omnia.
The restaurant is know worldwide for its delicious and sophisticated dishes; that mix traditional Swiss traditions with international cuisine. Local & international products that all come together here.
We had the most wonderful table at the restaurant, romantic and private on the left side of the restaurant that is a little bit higher. It felt like a movie, no joke.
Emmanuel chose the normal gourmet menu with 7 courses (195 CHF) and I chose the vegetarian version (162 CHF). Honestly, everything was so interesting and unique that you don’t really care if there is meat or not, it was fabulous.
We chose to have also the wine pairing, I believe that when you have different dishes and you are not sure of what to choose a wine pairing is perfect. It always makes us discover new local wines & producers and the wine will always go well with your food.
Rooms: 30 rooms including 12 suites, named by letters not numbers and all unique & special.
Venues: Spa with outdoor jacuzzi, library, the restaurant, lounge bar, sun terrace, boardroom

LivinGeneva’s Tips : f you can, request a room with a matterhorn view, that sunrise will stay in my heart forever.

This has been one of the most special weekends in my life. The service was on top of perfection, the food, the room, the view, the weather (that you need to order with the higher powers LOL).
Thank you to The Omnia for inviting us to discover this beautiful property & get to know the philosophy and insides of this project.
Also! Before I forget, I loved that they dont close between Summer & Winter. They only take a month or so break in May and then it is open all year long. Also the rooms and hotel in general is renovated on the go, so everything feels like it opened yesterday.
PS- I loved the amenities!!

How to get there? :
From Geneva the best option is the train.
Train- It takes approximately 3.5 hrs and you arrive directly to the station.
Car- You need to get to Täsch and leave the car there, then you get the train.
NOTES: There are no cars in Zermatt, when you arrive by train you then have electric taxis that take you to the hotel.
