Welcome to 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.

The Lodge is part of Virgin Limited Edition, Sir Richard Branson's collection of unique retreats.



Preparing for your stay



What’s the weather like?

As you’d imagine, the scenery in the Alps varies enormously. No one can predict exactly when the snows will descend, but the average daytime temperature in winter hovers around -3°C/27°F with the coldest month in January, while temperatures in summer can average a balmy 26°C/79°F in July.

During the months of June, July, August and September you'll enjoy pleasant weather with nice average temperatures - perfect for hiking and cycling the Alps.

What to pack

The Lodge is your home from home, so go comfortable with your daywear. In the evening, you may choose to go smart-casual to dinner. A jacket and tie are never needed, but feel free to dress up if you wish!

Keeping warm in the winter means wearing layers. Start with your outer layer such as a waterproof ski jacket and ski trousers, a mid-layer which ideally should be a fleece jumper and finally thermals for your base layer. Make sure you pack a winter hat, wool socks, ski gloves, ski goggles and a neck warmer or scarf. It’s also a good idea to bring along waterproof walking boots – they’ll feel fantastically comfortable at the end of the day when changing out of your ski boots.

Your summer attire will depend somewhat on what kind of activities you have planned, but definitely pack sunglasses, a hat to keep the sun off and a sturdy pair of hiking boots. Temperatures can vary at altitude, and it’s best to be prepared for all eventualities, so a backpack to carry water and an extra layer.
