Nestling at an altitude of 1,500m, in the heart of the prestigious ski resort of Verbier, The Lodge welcomes you to its exceptional chalet at the foot of the slopes.
Owned by famous billionaire Sir Richard Branson, The Lodge is less than 2 hours’ drive from Geneva International Airport and around an hour from Lausanne.
From Sion airport, where you can land by private plane, you will reach the chalet in 45 minutes. On request, we can organize a helicopter transfer from Geneva, Zurich and Sion.
Listed as one of the most beautiful hotels in Switzerland, this 5-star hotel welcomes you in the winter and summer seasons. Sir Richard Branson chose to set up his hotel in Verbier because, according to him, “the resort offers a unique experience of gliding in the world, memorable after-skis and a perfect environment for family holidays in winter as in summer “.
Branson leases his own chalet when he does not occupy it. You will have the opportunity to sleep in Richard’s own room! The Branson family stays at the Lodge for a week or two during the winter season and usually a few days in the summer, often with friends like singers Natalie Imbruglia or Peter Gabriel.
In a warm atmosphere and a refined and cozy setting, you will experience a unique stay. More than fifteen months of work were necessary to bring the lodge to life. The renovation was orchestrated by architect Patrice Coupy. The contemporary chic decoration was entrusted to the very famous designer Fiona Barratt. All furniture was created in England and delivered to Switzerland.
Skiers and snowboarders will delight in the 400km of slopes that make up the ski area of the vast 4 Vallées. The hotel is located just 200 metres from the Verbier-Les Ruinettes ski lift with a driver service on call to drop you off and pick you up. After enjoying the mountain’s good air, you can take off your skis and relax in the indoor or outdoor jacuzzi.
The living room of the chalet opens on a central fireplace, ideal to meet with family or friends during long winter evenings. The Lodge offers :
- 7 rooms and 2 suites
- 1 restaurant with common “as home” table
- 2 bars where everyone can serve at any time
- 1 indoor pool
- 1 spa
- 1 hammam
- 2 jacuzzis
- 1 fitness center
- 1 playground for kids
- 1 high-quality baby-sitting service
The chalet can be rented per room in the summer and during selected winter weeks, but if you prefer, you can also privatize the property for 18 people, plus 6 children. Whether it’s for a luxurious ski trip or a summer getaway to the mountains, The Lodge has it all.
Each room is uniquely decorated and represents a real comfort cocoon. Three of the Bedooms (29 sqm – 312 sqft) are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors. One of them, the Duplex, offers a bathroom located above a small staircase. These rooms (with the exception of the Duplex) can be furnished with either a king size bed or twin beds.
The 4 Large Rooms (33 sqm – 355 sqft) are more spacious and all have a balcony and a large bathroom with separate shower and bath. While the seating area is ideally suited for reading or relaxing, an office is also present for you to write your logbook or consult your recent emails.
The Bunkroom, especially designed to sleep and entertain up to 6 children can be found on the 2nd floor, it can be booked and privatized for a family, when not exclusively hiring The Lodge, with parents staying in the Large Room, next door. With a toy box, games console and books to entertain and an en-suite shower room, little guests have all they need for a pampered space to call their own.
Finally, on the top floor of the chalet, the two Master Suites (47 sqm – 505 sqft) offer their guests a magnificent private terrace that is ideally suited for an intimate dinner during the summer. A king size bed, a central fireplace, a spacious bathroom, and a rain shower and toilet kit complete the comfort of these two suites. Besides a breathtaking view of the mountains, the two suites offer the possibility of being connected via a secret door concealed in the library. A must if you are traveling with your family, in order to preserve privacy while having only a step to make to meet all together.
The Lodge’s kitchen and dining room offers its guests the delicious pleasure of gathering around a generous friendly table and sharing the anecdotes of a beautiful day on the slopes or a long mountain bike ride.
You will taste delicious locally sourced flavors, from the Michelin star trained team of chefs, who will create a diverse menu, which perfectly hits the spot in the summer months or after a day in the snow.
Whether you want to share a classic family dinner or a gourmet dinner, the Lodge team is ready to adapt its menus to your desires.
