You won’t get closer to terrace views of Switzerland’s iconic Matterhorn than Ultima Crans-Montana, cuddled by the Alps in the country’s southwestern frontier near the border of France. This mountain chalet spreads to nearly 50,000 square feet as its own private resort with ski-in/ski-out access to the fabulous Crans-Montana ski slopes.
The modern-meets-rustic-meets-Luxe Gothic Transitional decor keeps eyes entertained and inspiration piqued through two exquisite and expansive chalets that can be booked together for a large gathering, or booked separately.
Whatever the need, find plenty of places to wander at Ultima Crans-Montana. Together these chalets, sleep up to 38 people in luxurious spaces and plush sleeping quarters that make it large enough to be together and at the same time alone amid stunning and intimate relaxation
Crans 1 makes up the larger footprint with 10 bedrooms (including two expansive children’s dormitories). Each bedroom is a suite with its own sense of style. Adjacent Crans 2 can accommodate up to 12 guests in similar flair across six en-suite master bedrooms with dressing rooms and balconies. Together they share a buzzworthy marble, glass and teak underground spa and salon area with massage therapists, medical staff and cosmetologists on call and at the ready. Indulge in beauty treatments under Baccarat chandelier lighting. Enjoy a starlight hammam experience followed by a cooling snow blizzard session, and a warming chromatic shower. In the evening, watch Netflix or a first-run film on a movie screen sitting on soft couches while the chalet’s staff brings made-to-order popcorn and cocktails. A billiards room, a cigar lounge, private bars and a dining room that can seat 16 with entrees created by the in-house private chef comprise just a few of the wows here.
In winter or summer lie by the outdoor pool and take in the majesty. The pool is heated year ‘round and makes a refreshing dip as fresh snowflakes swirl around you. Ultima Crans-Montana is in a prime ski-in/ski-out location, allowing guests to ski onto the Les Planches ski slope and optimize time on the ski trails. To get to other ski areas, the center of the ski village is just a five minutes away by chauffeured car, or 20 minutes by brisk walk.
