Chalet Banja

Zermatt, Valais, Switzerland: self catered or catered, sleeps 6/8 Top class accommodation in an ideal location and with excellent facilities.

Chalet Banja

Newly built last year as part of a luxury two-chalet development including Chalet Binna which is next door, Chalet Banja sets new standards in Alpine luxury. Situated in the desirable Winkelmatten area of the resort, it is a 5 minute walk to the Matterhorn Express gondola and it is possible to ski back to within 100m of the door (or less!) for much of the winter. Also, the bus stop is close by.

The chalet has fantastic views of the Matterhorn and associated peaks and provides for a level of comfort, design and convenience seldom seen in private ski accommodation. Further more, the impressive in-house “wellness” facilities rival those found in many of Zermatt’s hotels and include a private swimming pool and gym.


Modern in design with the chalet’s various levels going down from the main entrance and boot room.  Access to the chalet has been specifically designed to allow for guests with limited mobility: there is ramp access to the front door and a private internal lift between floors, in addition to the stairs.

The large sitting/dining room has an atmospheric fireplace and wood oven, as well as its own terrace.  The adjacent kitchen/dinner is fully equipped and has a big table where everyone can eat together, as well as a terrace which looks at the Matterhorn.

Tastefully furnished and decorated to a high standard, the chalet’s owner is right to be proud of his collection of paintings and drawings that adorn the chalet’s walls.

Next to the front door, there is a ski room with a heated boot rack.

On the chalet’s bottom level there is an extensive “wellness” area with, in addition to a 10m heated swimming pool with Matterhorn view, a sauna, shower and equipped exercise area/gym.

The bedrooms and main sitting room have cable TV, whilst the chalet has its own private wifi network. All bathrooms/showers have hairdryers and there are safes in all the bedrooms.
