Named after a prominent Bhutanese monastery, Tiger’s Nest (Chemin des Jadaneys 17, Hérémence 1987, Valais; 852/9183-0667; tigersnestlodge.com) brings a rich Asian design aesthetic to Les 4 Vallées, Switzerland’s largest skiing area. The Hong Kong-based owners have poured their love of the region into the four-story lodge, which comprises five double bedrooms, including a master suite on the top floor with views over the Matterhorn range. The lodge is around two hours by car from Geneva airport, or an hour-or-so more from Milan and Zurich. Prices start from US$3,150 per person, per week based on 10 adults sharing. The price includes daily breakfast and afternoon tea served by the lodge’s chef, as well as lunch for non-skiing guests and dinner and drinks on six of the seven nights.
