The Chedi Andermatt hotel’s general manager Jean-Yves Blatt said, “We have long known that cryptocurrencies also have a future in hotel operations.

Located 112 kilometers from Zurich, the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star award-winning hotel has 123 rooms and suites, five restaurants and bars, a day spa, and many other on-site amenities.

In 2005, billionaire Samih Sawiris saw the potential of the mountain village located in Switzerland. He stated that, “The first time I came to Andermatt, I made a discovery: the genuine natural beauty of a Swiss mountain village in the middle of the Alps. And I was thrilled – not just by the Andermatt village but by the entire valley.”

In 2009, construction began on The Chedi, which later went on to open its doors to guests in December of 2013.

Chedi Andermatt hotel guests can pay for their hotel expenses of 200 Swiss francs or more using either Bitcoin or Ethereum via Bitcoin Suisse, a Swiss crypto platform.

The European hotel chain Pavilions Hotels & Resorts began accepting cryptocurrency payments in June of 2021 and now accepts 40 different cryptocurrencies for booking and room services. Furthermore, Thailand’s Sri Panwa Phuket and S Hotels & Resorts also accept digital currencies as a form of payment.
