In my last post I shared details from the upcoming Capella Georgetown. But working at our Corporate offices, I can assure you that this is only one of several exciting projects currently under way. One such property is the upcoming Capella Sochi, which is scheduled to open in time for the 2014 Olympics in Russia.
In between one of his many trips, Fausto Barba, Vice President of Finance & Development, shared with me his impression of this unique location.
“I first visited the site in late October 2009. We landed at midnight on a Friday, and took a taxicab through the mountains. We made plans to see the site the next morning at first light.
The hotel is located near some of the sites for Olympic ski events and will be a true ski-in and ski-out resort. In the summer the resort village will be home to a world-class equestrian center and several outdoor activities. And there will be an amazing spa! Of course, at the time of our visit this was nothing more than a set of plans.
The next morning, when we finally had an opportunity to look out on the site, it took my breath away. The views in every direction are spectacular. It is the quintessential mountain village!”
At that point Fausto took out his phone and shared some of the images he had taken that day. One was so beautiful, that I had to share it with you:
Are you a fan of the Winter Olympics? What do you think of the view from the new Capella Sochi?
