The Lodge, Sir Richard Branson's Mountain Retreat is located in Verbier, Switzerland. Perched high in the Swiss Alps in a forested area, The Lodge is just a five minute walk from the town of Verbier, and only 250m from the main lift station. The chalet is 1,200m2 in total split over five floors all connected by an elevator. With nine spacious, beautifully designed bedrooms including two Master Suites, The Lodge can accommodate up to 18 guests plus an additional six children in the especially designed Bunkroom.
When the weather is glorious it's more than likely you'll be spending plenty of time on the mountain, but when you get back to The Lodge there's still plenty to do! Pull off those hiking boots and relax in the lounge with a cool drink curled up on a comfy sofa. Or if your muscles ache, take a dip in the indoor heated pool, or warm yourself up in the indoor or outdoor Jacuzzis.
The Lodge also has a fully equipped gym, a steam room and a party area. You can shoot some pool or dance the night away all underneath a twinkling disco ball. If you want to take it easy we can pop on a film for you and your friends or family on the large plasma screen (we've got a great selection of DVDs) while you enjoy a few drinks from the bar.
The food served at The Lodge is one of the highlights of your stay, and we serve a mix of Swiss and international cuisine. Dining can be as formal or informal as you wish, from full four-course gourmet meals to healthy meals with the children. Meals can be themed, traditional or a mix! Ask us for some ideas or give us yours. We also stock a great range of international wines, top quality spirits, international beers and excellent house champagne.
Partying at The Lodge is a serious business! The bar never closes, and just when you think the party's peaked, the infamous shot ski' is likely to make an appearance you have been warned. The party room also features a pool table that transforms into a ping pong (or beer pong) table and there's even a disco ball so you can relive those Saturday Night Fever moments while you enjoy a few drinks from the bar.
After an active day on the mountains there's a good chance your muscles will be aching after all that effort. Relax and unwind with a treatment in the capable hands of our resident beauty therapist. We use products from YonKa and Aromatherapy Associates. Treatments are charged additionally - for a full list please contact us.
