A timber-framed sanctuary nestled on the slopes above Zermatt, Switzerland's most iconic alpine resort, CERVO Mountain Boutique Resort is a place where guests can ski right up to the entrance—a small, almost private doorway that oozes exclusivity—with the majestic Matterhorn looming large on the horizon. When they step inside, the soothing smell of warm wood and a smiling face greets them. Wandering further into the building gives guests the comforting sensation of being immersed in a contemporary alpine wonderland. Local materials like felt, loden, and stone converge with vintage curios in the main building, a converted 1950s chalet that still has its original wooden floor. Young visionaries Daniel F. and Seraina Lauber merge contemporary lines and homey colors here, while a hunting theme imbues the central design concept. The curved, stylized antlers of a deer appear sporadically throughout the building (the word ‘cervo’ is Italian for deer).
Here and there, the greenery surrounding the Matterhorn is punctured by the gently slanted roofs of wooden-built chalets. But one of these buildings, first erected here in the 1950s, has just been redesigned as an exclusive hotel, creating a benchmark for a new kind of alpine glamor. According to Daniel Ferdinand Lauber, one of the young visionaries behind CERVO Mountain Boutique Resort, the architectural focus here is firmly on warmth and comfort. So instead of seeing tracts of synthetic materials, guests are greeted by luxurious timber supports and solid stone partitions. The main building still has its original wooden floor, and even in the five newly built chalets, there’s a sense of subtlety and local integration.
CERVO Mountain Boutique Resort is no stuffy, old-school hunting lodge. There are clean lines swooping through the expansive interior spaces, giving visitors all the room they need to experience the elegance of the Alps. It’s been created this way so that here, beneath the long strips of gorgeous Swiss pine, people can regale each other with tales from the slopes.
Daniel Lauber wanted to be an hotelier since childhood. After studying at the Swiss Hotel Management School Lucerne, and training at international five-stars in both the United States and Switzerland, he broke ground in 2009 with CERVO Mountain Boutique Resort—his family-owned ski chalet that he converted into a 35-room hotel with his wife and chef Seraina.
It’s easy to feel small in the shadow of the imposing Matterhorn. That’s why Daniel and Seraina Lauber have created a hotel with a large heart, one that offers the perfect balance between alpine charm and contemporary elegance.
