Riffelalp Resort 2'222m Zermatt
Zermatt, Switzerland
Scenic mountain views • Off the beaten path • Unique setting
Flanked by imposing snow-capped peaks, the ski-in/ski-out Riffelalp Resort brings unbridled luxury to the gorgeous resort town of Zermatt. Tastefully decorated guestrooms, six exclusive dining and drinking spaces, and an enormous day spa are just some of the reasons why well-to-do guests flock to the establishment in droves. Whether you’ve come to hike up the hills in summer or ski down them in winter, the Riffelalp Resort is where adventure and luxury intertwine.


Famed for its jaw-dropping mountain vistas that pop up at every turn, Zermatt has long been a favourite among alpine enthusiasts and travelers after a quick nature break. The centrepiece of the show is the instantly recognizable Matterhorn, which guests can admire from almost any section of the hotel.

A 5-minute tram ride, which happens to be the highest in Europe, allows guests to transfer to and from the Gornergrat station Riffelalp . It is reachable by train from Zermatt in 20 minutes.

Ski-in / ski-out location of the hotel has everything what a ski lover looks for. The ski slopes go directly past the hotel.

Rooms & Suites:

Featuring 78 well-appointed rooms and a handful of tastefully decorated suites, the Riffelalp can accommodate groups of any size in utmost luxury and style. Officially recognized as a superior 5-star hotel, each of these elegant traditional Swiss style rooms comes kitted out with convenient amenities such as an integrated entertainment system and a Nescafe machine.

Even the smaller rooms have their own living and office space, while the more grandiose suites and chalets boast private balconies.

Pool & Facilities:

After a tough day at the slopes, few things in life are as relaxing as having a nice soak in the spa. And the Riffelalp has certainly got guests covered with its state of the art health and wellness area.

An indoor and outdoor pool (both heated), steam bath, Finnish Sauna, Schonbiel Cave, Whirlpool Spa, and Chriiter-Grotta are just some of the options for those looking to warm up after the snow. If chilling out is more your style, guests are welcome to grab a massage or kick back in the relaxation room or solarium as well.

To keep the kids entertained, the hotel games room comes stocked with a ping pong table, a foosball table, Nintendo Wii, and PlayStation. Of course, with all this natural splendour around they may decide to venture outside to play on the trampoline and playground instead.

As for the adults, billiards, bowling, and a billion outdoor adventures are enough to keep them entertained.

Food & Drink:

Riffelalp offers 3 restaurants in winter and 2 restaurants and a bar in summer.

Guests can indulge in a hearty Italian feast at the decadent Ristorante Al Bosco or sip on some schnapps at the cosy bar.

By night, the resort comes alive as a multitude of culinary options opens their doors. Whether you’re fine dining at the Alexandre or sampling traditional Raclette by a crackling fire at the Walliserkeller, head chef and global gastronomic superstar Luigi Lafranco will ensure you’re well-fed and content at all times.

Fancy a glass of fine wine to accompany all that delectable gourmet cuisine? The Maître d’Hôtel will sort you out with a selection of the finest vino from Europe and beyond.

Special Info:

Despite receiving over 300 days of glorious sunshine every year, the Riffelalp is a seasonal resort. Bookings are only available from June to September and December to April, with the exact date varying slightly year on year.
