The Omnia hotel is situated perfectly in the centre of Zermatt, high on a rock, 45 meters above the roofs of the town affording beautiful views. Passing through a tunnel, guests come to an elevator rising up through the rock, which brings them to the lobby at 1,649 meters above sea level.
The hotel offers 30 rooms including 12 suites, a library, and a restaurant with fireplace, a lounge bar, a boardroom, a cavern and two sun decks above the roofs of Zermatt- with the Matterhorn practically next door.

Zermatt is an idyllic village which lies at the foot of the Matterhorn and is surrounded by no less than 38 peaks. The resort town lies in south-western Switzerland, in the German-speaking portion of Canton Valais. This is a traditional winter sports resort, with its international ambience, where visitors can get around by foot, by horse-drawn sleigh or by electric car.
The winter season in Zermatt begins in mid-November with guaranteed snow fall and continues through the beginning of May. Some of Zermatt’s most unique features are its downhill runs across the international border into Italy and its breath-taking views of the Alps. An amusement park, helicopter skiing, ski tours with or without a mountain guide, ski safaris and ski tests complete the program.
During the summer, Zermatt’s adventure and themed hiking trails, with their spectacular panoramic views, the new Swiss Nordic Par for Nordic walkers and a glacier garden provides plenty of opportunities for exercise. A new fixed-rope climbing route has been opened in summer 2006.
Golfers can enjoy the Golf Club Matterhorn’s courses perched in the valleys between the villages of Randa and Tasch. The 21 hectare course includes a unique island green which harmoniously integrates into the natural environment.
