Nestled in the Swiss village of Verbier, the new Hotel Cordée des Alpes is slated to open on December 22, bringing a luxury, alpine-inspired experience to the snowy landscape that surrounds it.
Hotel Cordée des Alpes was constructed with its scenic environment in mind. Using local stone and timber for exteriors, and nearby granite and treated wood for design touches inside the 34 rooms and suites, the new retreat delivers a distinct experience colored by the mountains of the region. While a wellness spa, hammam, restaurant, bar and swimming pool round out the package, the village of Verbier — with its glowing, crisscrossed streets and elevation of 5,000 feet — is just as much a part of the ambience as the hotel itself.
Boasting 90 ski lifts and more than 250 miles of tailored ski runs, Verbier, which is less than a two-hour drive from Geneva International Airport, is prime territory just waiting to be conquered by you. The chilly months of winter aren’t the only time for outdoor fun in the town, however. The peaks around Verbier are also havens for mountain bikers, and those looking to sharpen their club skills will find plenty to enjoy at Verbier Golf Club.
Winter bookings for the dwindling 2012 and upcoming 2013 season are currently open.
