The Lodge is perched high in the Swiss Alps in a forested area just a five minute walk from the town of Verbier, and only 250m from the main lift station. If in winter you find walking in ski boots too difficult, we'll be happy to drop you off, and you can ski straight back home as The Lodge is on a returning ski run.View Location Map
The Lodge is Sir Richard Branson's stunning chalet located in Verbier, Switzerland, one of the Alp's most exclusive resorts and Europe's hottest ski spots.
Situated on a quiet road just 250m from the main ski lifts and backing onto one of the returning pistes, The Lodge is in a perfect location for the slopes.
General Manager Ashley (with the help of fourteen full-time staff), will ensure every need is catered for by offering the highest level of service and attention to detail perfected from her years on Necker Island. The Lodge itself provides a unique and fun setting: swim in the indoor pool, be pampered in the Spa, or just relax after a day on the mountain whilst enjoying a wide selection of tailored menus and fine wines.
Whether you need us to entertain the kids or fix a perfect gin and tonic, leave it to us; The Lodge will provide the perfect year round escape.

Services and Inclusions
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.
In winter our rates include breakfast and afternoon tea, as well as dinner on all but one night during the week, when you'll be able to sample the best of Verbier's culinary delights. Each day we will book a table for lunch somewhere on the slopes, with each guest responsible for paying for his or her own meal. If you make it back to The Lodge for lunch, or if you choose to stay behind during the day, a light lunch will be served (included in the rates).
We stock a fine range of international wines, top quality spirits, international beers and excellent house Champagne, and these are included with any meal served at The Lodge. If you would like us to ship in something special, simply give us plenty of notice - there is generally no extra charge unless the item is particularly rare or extra shipping is involved. All guests are encouraged to treat The Lodge like their own home so they are welcome to help themselves to drinks they want at any time.
