The Zermatt Resort is a high-value, four-diamond luxury resort that provides guests a Swiss escape at the base of the Wasatch Mountains. Even though it was just a quick, weekend getaway, it is one of those vacations our family will be talking about for a long time! We had an absolute blast, and can’t wait to go back!
Instead of just booking a room, and paying separately for entertainment, check out the vacation package deals offered. We chose the Tubing and Lodging package, and spent the next day tubing at Soldier Hollow. READ MY REVIEW of tubing at Soldier Hollow.
At the Zermatt Resort and Spa, my kids were immediately drawn to the giant chess board out front and the Swiss music playing over the speakers. The complimentary valet made unloading our luggage and parking our vehicle very convenient. We had read reviews online that the Zermatt has fabulous apple cider in the lobby, so we were excited to try it, but unfortunately they had ran out for the evening.
Our room was on the fourth floor of the main building, and it was absolutely breathtaking. The fireplace was a great touch, especially with how cold it was outside!
We ate dinner at Matty’s Bistro inside the Zermatt. Even though it was a nice, fancy restaurant, it was still kid-friendly. The staff was extremely accomodating, and the food was cooked beyond our expectations.
Our room had two fluffy bathrobes in the closet, which were perfect for throwing on to walk down to the pool. The pool is and indoor/outdoor pool, with a waterfall cascading into the indoor hot tub. The outdoor pool was open, and you don’t even have to get out of the indoor pool to get to the outdoor pool; swim down a small pathway, and it will lead you right outside. At night, the ceiling changes color, making you feel like you have escaped to a tropical island during sunset.
In the summertime, they have a merry-go-round on the grounds of the Zermatt. Because it was winter, it was closed up, so we will have to return again when the weather is warmer so the kids can take a ride on it.
Another fun activity while staying at the Zermatt is the sleigh rides. Because we went swimming at night, and tubing at Soldier Hollow the next day, we didn’t have enough time. That is another activity we are looking forward to the next time we return.
In the morning when we checked out, the staff was friendly and made sure our stay was all that we expected. We asked about the cider again, and they said we were a few minutes early. They have complimentary coffee in the lobby until 9am, and then they switch it over to apple cider. It as barely 9am when we were checking out, so we are looking forward to visiting again, and hopefully getting to try the cider then!
Before heading to Soldier Hollow for tubing, we grabbed a quick breakfast at the Backeri and Eis Cafe on the grounds of the Zermatt. I ordered an Egg Muffin, and expected it to be a small breakfast sandwich, similar to the ones you get at McDonalds. It was three times the size of what I expected, and was the perfect choice to fill up before spending the morning tubing.
With unique features such as the Crater, Spa, restaurants and the beautiful winter wonderland with fun, family activities, the Homestead and Zermatt Resorts are the perfect place for a family getaway.

Zermatt Resort & Spa was named after the village at the base of the Matterhorn in Switzerland. The name sought to draw a parallel between the breathtaking views of Switzerland and the open valley of Midway, Utah, which lies at the base of the 13,000-foot-high Wasatch mountain range. Zermatt provides luxurious lodging, dining and spa services in a beautiful mountain valley setting in Midway, Utah.
I was provided with a complimentary one night stay for two adults and two children at the Zermatt, and a complimentary dinner for four at Matty’s Bistro for my review. I was not compensated financially, nor was I persuaded to write any specific type of review. The opinions and views expressed in this review are all my own.
