The sharp peak of the Matterhorn provides visual drama to the backdrop of Hotel Matthiol, which is nestled among evergreens on the periphery of Zermatt, Switzerland. The stone-and-timber exterior evokes storybook Alpine chalets; inside, select items of furniture, fireplaces, and even animal busts gleam as if dipped in silver. Relax at the sauna, where the hot rocks are doused in essential oils, then dine on Mediterranean-inspired cuisine at Restaurant Matthiol.
From $355. Moosstrasse 40, 41/(0) 27-968-1717.
