Christian Eckert, Managing Director of The Omnia Mountain Resort in Zermatt since 2017, has been named “Hotelier of the Year 2023”. 
The title is judged annually by a top-class jury of experts and awarded by HotellerieSuisse. Zermatt Tourism is proud to have such a highly awarded hotelier in the Zermatt – Matterhorn destination and sends Christian Eckert its warmest congratulations. 

The jury’s reasons – Hotelier of the Year 2023 

Success, creativity and innovation – the jury looks for all those criteria. Christian Eckert embodies all this and more. The high number of regular guests and corresponding online ratings speaks for itself. Keywords like “attention to detail”, “vocation as a host” or “innovation” crop up in reviews again and again. His warmth, openness and authenticity are appreciated by his staff as much as his guests. He is an approachable leader who communicates his goals, ideas and principles clearly. At the same time, he provides staff with considerable freedom, allowing creativity at every level and even expecting employees to bring their own personality into the business. The result is a harmony that cannot be taken for granted in the luxury class.
