A ski break fit for Oscar nominees

The Oscars are just around the corner on March 10, so this is the time that many Hollywood Stars will be thinking about the much anticipated 2024 ‘Everyone Wins’ Nominee Gift Bag, which is hand-delivered to the top 25 Oscar nominees

This year, lucky nominees like Ryan Gosling, Robert Downey Jr., Emily Blunt, Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, and Jodi Foster will each receive a three-night stay in the Swiss Alps overlooking the iconic Matterhorn, among other goodies.

Chalet Zermatt Peak (CZP), a luxury Swiss chalet, is this year taking part in the prestigious gift bag. CZP was recently crowned the ‘World’s Best Ski Chalet’ awarded for its architecture, stunning location, gourmet food, and bespoke service. This year’s Hollywood A-list will not only receive a stay at the chalet but will also be treated to two gourmet dinners and three breakfasts (provided by the award-winning private chalet chefs), as well as full access to the entire chalet (which includes the wellness spa). Zermatt Tourism is also throwing in mountain passes so the celebrities can take a break from the LA hustle and bustle and escape to the fresh air of the mountains.

Here’s a sneak preview of this stunning private chalet, perched high above the enchanting village, looking towards the iconic Matterhorn. The exclusive Chalet Zermatt Peak has stunning architectural design and luxury that is designed for A-listers who want to escape from the paparazzi.

Spaciously laid out over six opulent floors, the property includes five deluxe double bedrooms, ceiling-to-floor windows, sky observatory roofing and an indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi. The spacious open-plan living areas spill out onto the generous wrap-around balcony, all framed by the most envied view in Zermatt. Guests can relax on the balcony or lounge in the spacious glassed-roof living area, or drift off to sleep under the stars in the gallery suite. The floor-to-ceiling windows capture Zermatt’s landscape and an iconic view of the most famous mountain in the world.

Each of the five individually designed bedroom suites features a deluxe double bed, end suites, seating and dressing areas and spectacular views.  They have HD cinematic televisions featuring digital surround sound and Bluetooth connection. Lighting, curtains and audio-visual are all remote-controlled.  The en-suite bathrooms offer ESPA® beauty and skincare products and include plush designer robes and towels, as well as hairdryers and straighteners. They also have a rejuvenating rain shower, with hand and body jets options.  The master suite includes a large private Jacuzzi, partner powder room and walk-in wardrobe and from the bed, stars can enjoy a view of the Matterhorn.

A-listers can also make use of the Wellness Centre to restore their inner balance and peace of mind between movies. The Wellness Centre contains a private gymnasium, full treatment spa and in-house massage therapist to ensure guests enjoy the ultimate in relaxation.


There’s a dry Finnish or a wet Swedish sauna, bio steam in the hammam, or relax in the bubbles and jets of the indoor/outdoor Jacuzzi. Furthermore, the gym area boasts state-of-the-art TechnoGym® equipment with integrated TVs and Bluetooth connectivity.  Guests can then finish their workout with a power shower to refresh and revive.  For those in need of pampering, there are world-renowned ESPA® spa therapy experts and indulgent signature rituals or blissful aromatic massages. Everything you can imagine is located within the property so there is no need to leave the chalet, but enjoy dedicated time to work on your well-being.

Talking about their participation, Matthew Klaiber, the chalet’s Global Business Development Manager, said: “We are delighted to be selected to participate in this year’s Oscar Nominee Gift Bag. We have great admiration and respect for the craft that comes out of the USA. I am sure the recipients will appreciate our private luxury chalet in Switzerland and all it offers. An escape to the fresh mountain air of Zermatt, Switzerland would be a welcome reward for all their hard work and dedication.”
