The Experimental Group is new to Verbier, but the fit is perfect. Clubby, laid-back and cool yet at the same time very understated. The experimental chalet is bound to attract a hip and trendy crowd.
The hotel consists of 39 rooms, a cocktail bar, restaurant, spa and the infamous Farm Club (nightclub).
The design is tactile; lots of soft velvets, smooth wood and natural cottons. The rooms, previously rather boxy, has been softened with clever coving, wood panelling and mouldings the colour of clotted cream.
They brought in Italian designer Fabrizio Casiraghi to soften a fairly functional Fifties building. Bright and inviting on the outside, with whitewashed walls, big, dark timbers, Swiss-flag-red shutters. The entrance takes you bang into the restaurant, warm and stylish with pistachio panelling on the walls, bright, bespoke Portuguese tiles and putty-coloured carpets; sounds weird, but it works. It is retro but not pastiche, with a sort of comfy Soho House feel.
The décor of the cosy bedrooms is comforting: custom-made bedheads with little mountain goats carved on to the tops; vintage oil paintings on the walls; rounded bedside tables; thick velvet curtains; retro-tiled bathrooms. It’s thoughtful, and so is the minibar, where there are little glass bottles of pre-mixed cocktails, and – nice touch – a stainless steel hip flask that guests can take up on to the slopes.
