The updated Cervo is a reconceived haunt for the modern nomad where sustainability, connection to nature, and a “glocal” experience reign supreme.

Following an eight-month renovation process that commenced in summer 2020, the hotel now presents an updated mission statement in line with its physical reincarnation...

where a renewed emphasis on the importance of sustainability is placed front and center. This includes a newly implemented geothermal heat pump, which allows the hotel to generate up to 95 percent of its energy requirements for hot water and heating.

Interior design Dreimeta

Redesigned by multi-award-winning studio Dreimeta, led by Armin Fischer and Andrea Kraft-Hammerschall, the remodelled spaces feature a modern interpretation of the Alpine lifestyle...

alongside a decidedly more outward looking perspective of the world. Among the three types of accommodations—The Huntsman, The Nomad and The Alpinist—that now populate Cervo, warm colors, wooden surfaces, and natural materials coalesce with timelessly modern accents and views of the Matterhorn.

Well-being Sublime relaxation

The hotel’s new Mountain Ashram Spa focusses on healing body and mind through practices from around the world.

On offer are meditation, coaching, and yoga sessions both in a new ritual room and on the mountain meadow, as well as Onsen baths, massages, and treatments.

Food & Drink Local and worldly

Three in-house restaurants reflect the resort’s new merger of Alpine elements with a worldly vision.

At Bazaar, a lively eatery inspired by the bustling markets of the East, a largely plant-based menu is served in a space where guests may also purchase items from the interior décor. At Italian restaurant Madre Nostra, classic dishes are crafted with ingredients from local farms and fishermen in a further nod to the resort’s reverence for the regional and the seasonal, while Ferdinand, with its Valais-focused cuisine, offers specialties made wholly from local produce.

Sustainability Keeping an eye on our Conscious Hotel Principles

“The ethical treatment of people and the environment is part of all processes and permeates all areas.”

Icon Architecture (1)


Wood is used to fit into the surrounding nature. The original chalet, where the main reception is, has remained much the same. Regional traditions are highlighted throughout.

Icon Waste (1)


All trash is separated and recycled accordingly. We donate all leftover candles to a company working with disabled people to produce new products.

Icon Energy (1)


Cervo uses LED lighting, solar panels on the balconies, geothermal energy, efficient wastewater heat recovery, and more.

Icon Water (1)


Guests have reusable water bottles in their rooms, which they can fill at smart taps that also make sparkling and heated water.

Icon Productsproduce (1)

Products & Produce

Whenever possible, products come from within 150km of Zermatt. Where this is not possible, the hotel chooses sustainable and organic suppliers.

Icon Culture (1)


Cervo supports local initiatives, such as sports clubs, and runs projects in collaboration with Lebensraum Zermatt, including a monthly soup table, a regular vegetable market, and an annual Sustainability Day.

Icon Recreation (1)


Guests can join complimentary yoga, mediation, and Pilates classes. The hotel also recommends hiking and biking routes in the summer and skiing options in the winter.

Icon Accessability (1)


Zermatt is car-free, so it is only reachable by train or taxi. Cervo recommends that guests do not rent a car during their stay.

Icon Healthyworkplace (1)

Healthy Workplace

Weekly staff activities such as yoga, climbing, skiing, and meditation are offered. Weekly breakfasts or after-work drinks are offered. Career development is encouraged by looking for managers from within existing teams.
