Check out the top 5 ski hotels opening their doors in 2019
We have a look at luxury hotel accomodations within some of the most popular travel destinations in the world. New ski resort properties are arising across the globe.
There’s a certain chic to the idea of a ski chalet, a resort on the cusp of a mountain where glamorous folks carve their way down black diamond runs all day and warming themselves with wine and hot beverages by a fire each night.
These sorts of luxury accommodations are a backbone of the hospitality industry within some of the most popular travel destinations in the world, particularly in places like Europe and parts of North America. With their cache and relation to winter sports, they essentially never go out of style. It perhaps comes as little surprise that information from the TOPHOTELPROJECTS database shows that 2019 will be another great year for new ski resort properties across the globe.
Without further adieu, here are five of the top ski hotels opening in 2019 and beyond, as per TOPHOTELCONSTRUCTION:
Andermatt Swiss Alps
Andermatt is a year-round destination in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The Andermatt Swiss Alps resort is currently being developed with the likelihood of opening in late 2018 or early 2019. The complete resort will include six 4 and 5-star hotels, 490 apartments in 42 buildings, about 25 chalets, convention facilities as well as an indoor pool and an 18-hole golf course. In addition, the Andermatt and Sedrun ski areas are being merged into the attractive Andermatt-Sedrun ski destinations. The first of the six hotels, the Chedi Andermatt, has been opened since December 2013. This project stands to yield 844 new rooms.
Grace St. Moritz Switzerland
Grace Hotels acquired La Margna, a landmark St. Moritz property, built in 1906. The renovation and extension of an annex building will transform the property into the Grace St. Moritz and St. Moritz Residences. When it opens, the hotel will have 56 guest rooms and suites, plus 17 several serviced apartments with views of the lake. It will also have three restaurants. The spa will be redesigned and a new gym and swimming pool will be added. Ski facilities will also be upgraded. The hotel has been owned by the Schweizer-Pitsch family for 50 years, who are reportedly retiring from the hotel business. Construction is slated to continue on this property throughout 2019 and much of 2020 as well, with a targeted opening date of later that year.
W Aspen, formerly the Sky Hotel, is a modern day mountain chalet, and will celebrate the spirit of Aspen. An oversized split level living room (which is the W brand’s alternative to the staid hotel lobby) reimagines the traditional hotel dining scene with a modern approach to dynamic cocktails and cuisine. To complete the experience of this incomparable location, the hotel will feature a 1,600 square foot outdoor patio and a 12,000 square foot rooftop bar and pool, overlooking Aspen Mountain and creating the ultimate experience for après-ski and warm-weather events.
Pure Resort Ehrwald
PURE Resort Ehrwald is one of projects on our list with an opening date that’s fast approaching. This property is under construction now with a debut slated for the second quarter of 2019.
Ski Hall Hotel
A new Ski Hall is planned in Lorenskog. The ski hall should include a resort and conference hotel, complete with a large conference area. The preliminary design was by Thomas Thiis-Evensen.
