· central location on main street · 1 minute's walk to Cretaz chairlift · 20 minutes' walk to Plan Maison gondola and cable car · ski school meeting point at the top of the gondola and cable car

Overview: hotel description: Hotel Excelsior Planet description

Enjoying an excellent location on the main street and 50m from the Cretaz lifts, the highly recommended Excelsior Planet provides stylish and comfortable accommodation with a good range of facilities and majestic views of the Matterhorn.

The hotel is particularly proud of its delicious Italian cuisine, and its restaurant has even established itself as one of the most sought-after food and wine destinations in town. Every dish goes through thorough research and experimentation before it's elegantly prepared by Chef Fabrizio Reffo and his team of 14 chefs. What's more, every item on the menu can be enhanced by a choice of wine - there are over 400 in total - hand-selected by the in-house sommelier.

The lounge, bar and wellness centre offer the perfect spots to relax in at the end of the day – if you want to use the spa facilities, you'll need to make a reservation at the reception. And when you need some extra pampering you can treat yourself to a beauty treatment at the luxurious Le Grenier.

Please Note

When you arrive in the resort, the coach isn’t able to take you right up to the entrance of the Hotel Excelsior Planet, so you’ll be dropped off close by. From there, a smaller vehicle will pick you up and take you the rest of the way.

We update Hotel Excelsior Planet's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.
