In the glamorous swiss ski resort of Zermatt it's all about the mountains. Whether people climb them, ski down them or simply gaze at them. The majestic Matterhorn, Europe's most recognizable peak is the centerpiece of life in this car-free village. Our pick is the THE OMNIA, contemporary interpretation of the traditional mountain lodge. Here in the Swiss Alps, the mountain lodge, a quintessentially American concept, has been reinvented for its European environment by the New York based architect Ali Tayar (1959 – 2016). THE OMNIA, with its one-of-a-kind location, interior design, fine cuisine, comprehensive wellness program and the people who stand behind it, strives to create an environment for complete moments of peace, in harmony with nature. THE OMNIA is the fusion of many different elements and influences, creating a single harmonious whole.
