The Chedi Andermatt, Andermatt, Switzerland

Nestled in the Alps and enveloped by the mountain range’s natural beauty, The Chedi Andermatt mixes typical Alpine chic with an unexpected Asian flair. The mountain retreat has four restaurants (The Japanese Restaurant by Hide Yamamoto has a Michelin star), a wine and cigar library, serene spa, salon and a state-of-the-art health club.

Daredevil skiers will love the deep-snow experience with avalanche training, while non-skiers will delight in the range of activities available: fondue under the stars, making your own Alpine cheese, hikes, boot camps and golf in the summer. There’s also a free-flowing champagne brunch every Sunday.

Top suite: Gotthard Suite from $20,500 per night

Swiss skating: Pull on your ice skates and take to the Chedi’s very own ice rink to practice those pirouettes, followed by a warming serving of homemade mulled wine.
