The Lodge


The Lodge is Sir Richard Branson's 9-bedroom stunning mountain retreat, high in the Swiss Alps in the world-famous resort of Verbier. The Lodge is open year-round and is the ideal base from which to explore the Alps in summer and in winter. In winter let’s face it: you’re here for the skiing, and with over 400km of on-piste skiable terrain, Verbier is a skier (or snowboarder’s) paradise. In the summer months there's just as much to do, with glorious weather so you can discover the Alps at a more relaxed pace. The team of friendly and experienced staff at The Lodge includes a General Manager, spa therapist and three chefs. Each one is dedicated to tailor-making each guest experience… People may arrive as guests but often leave as friends. For us, customer service means always being professional and honest and constantly searching for new ways to improve each guest experience.
