Epic Europe

THE OMNIA 5*

Zermatt

A modern gem below the Matterhorn, the Omnia is a comfortable mix of sleek design and warmth. Choose a book from the library and relax in a vintage Eero Saarinen lounge with uninterrupted views of the famous peak. The Omnia is the contemporary interpretation of the American mountain lodge, reinvented for its European environment by the New York based architect Ali Tayar.

 

While the materials and the craftsmanship reflect the tradition of the Valais, the furnishings throughout are inspired by a warm, handcrafted modernism. They include pieces by Mies van der Rohe, Raymond Loewy, Vladimir Kagan and Eero Saarinen. Their works are complemented by USM Modular Furniture, which is recognized as a design classic in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. But most of the interior furnishings and fittings are custom-made designs by Ali Tayar, conceived to meet the requirements of the mountain lodge, and handcrafted by local cabinet-makers.

 

SPA & WELLNESS: In door - outdoor pool, Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, caldarium, flower steam bath, relaxation area and a stunning outdoor whirlpool. Fitness area with state-of-the-art equipment from Technogym, Yoga/Pilates are offered as well as a full menu of massage treatments.

 

RESTAURANTS AND BAR: Gourmet restaurant Kulinarik serves refined European fare with local ingredients, the lounge bar serves snacks and houses an impressive collection of whiskey. The wine “Cavern” is a secret hideaway for dinner, drinks and live music.

 

LOCATION: The Omnia lies in the center of Zermatt, high on a rock, 45 meters above the roofs of the town. Passing through a tunnel, guests come to an elevator rising up through the rock, which brings them to the lobby at 1'649.40 meters above sea level. Walking distance to the village center, and bus stops to Matterhorn lift station.

  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
