‘The Omnia’ wins a place on the podium


Every year, TripAdvisor selects the best hotels in nine different categories. The winners of the ‘Travellers’ Choice Awards’ have just been announced. Two Zermatt hotels feature in the main category, ‘Top Hotels in Switzerland’.

The 5-star hotel ‘The Omnia’ is in third place in the ‘Top Hotels in Switzerland’ category. The hotel opened in 2006 and has an eye-catching architectural design that is reminiscent of a contemporary mountain lodge.

However, ‘The Omnia’ is not the only Zermatt hotel to feature in the top 10 of the ‘Top Hotels in Switzerland’. The 4-star hotel ‘Europe Hotel & Spa’ is number 10, with one of its TripAdvisor reviews stating, "It's worth going to the hotel restaurant even if you’re not staying in the hotel! Incredible food, great choice at the salad buffet and friendly service, and at the Schwarznasen bar, Tatjana serves fantastic wines & cocktails! Thank you!"

The ‘Top Hotels in Switzerland’ ranking looks like this:

1. Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, St.Moritz
2. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Genf
3. The Omnia, Zermatt
4. Lugano Dante Center Swiss Quality Hotel, Lugano
5. Park Hotel Vitznau, Vitznau
6. The Alpina Gstaad, Gstaad
7. Le Grand Bellevue, Gstaad
8. Castello del Sole Beach Resort & SPA, Ascona
9. Hotel Eiger, Mürren
10. Europe Hotel & Spa, Zermatt

Both Zermatt hotels were selected based on TripAdvisor reviews. This year, TripAdvisor chose 8,000 accommodation providers in 94 countries across nine categories.
