Nestled in a deep valley in the Swiss Alpine village of Adelboden, The Cambrian looks out on one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. With some of Switzerland’s best ski slopes and hiking trails, this outstanding location is ideal for both winter and summer. Adelboden, meaning “noble ground,” is conveniently situated about an hour from Bern and 2.5 hours from Geneva and Zurich, making it the perfect setting for the villa and chalets that combine to form this impressive property.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
After spending many of his family holidays in Adelboden as a boy, Grant Maunder jumped at the opportunity to purchase the village’s grandest hotel. Maunder soon realized that Adelboden’s unique spirit wouldn’t be reflected by an international chain and decided to get hands-on. This led to his belief that “a hotel is never a passive investment, especially if you care about it,” which is visible in every room and corridor.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
The Cambrian is a picture of 19th-century Switzerland, with a villa typical of the era adjoined by chalets with commanding views of the Alps. Although the cluster of structures is a postcard-like image of Switzerland, look closer and you’ll notice the smooth surfaces of slate and stone and panoramic windows that were added during the contemporary redesign. Sundecks and an enclosed winter garden beckon guests for après-ski drinks, while multiple viewing decks struggle to frame the surrounding mountains. The interior—as designed by the Momentum studio—abounds with natural, local materials to give contrasting and welcoming warmth to the views. Elegant and sleek furniture pieces, meanwhile, offer a cool nod to modernity while keeping traditional Alpine design in mind.
