Marriott International has signed an agreement with Mario Julen to open the first Ritz-Carlton Hotel located in a ski resort in Europe. It will be the second Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Switzerland, joining the Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix in Geneva. It is scheduled to open in 2026.

The hotel was designed by the Parisian firm AW² led by partner architects Reda Amalou and Stéphanie Ledoux. The Ritz-Carlton Zermatt promises to offer a high-end architectural and interior design inspired by the classic mountain chalet. It will also offer breathtaking views from the rooms and restaurants over the Matterhorn, one of the highest mountain ranges in the world.


We are delighted to announce this signature with Mario Julen who has a fantastic vision for the project“, said Satya Anand, President of Marriott International Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Zermatt is synonymous with skiing, mountaineering and breathtaking scenery”.


As the epitome of modern luxury, this historic development and stunning destination will enrich our portfolio of iconic Ritz-Carlton properties around the world, offering guests an exciting opportunity to experience Zermatt’s snow-capped peaks all year round, the world-class ski slopes emblematic of the Matterhorn mountain. Today’s signature reflects the increased demand for our luxury hospitality brands in Europe, the Middle East and Africa”
