Capella Hotel Group announces the opening of Solís Sochi Hotel and Solís Sochi Suites this winter season

Solís Hotels & Resorts will open two new properties – Solís Sochi Hotel and Solís Sochi Suites – offering supreme comfort and all the latest technology in the Russian resort of Krasnaya Polyana early next year, ahead of the XXII Olympic Winter Games, which take place in February 2014. Both hotels are located at an elevation of 960 metres above sea level, at the heart of Krasnaya Polyana, which is surrounded by the magnificent Caucasus Mountains offering a visually stunning and serene environment for year-round holidays with an emphasis on outdoor activities.

The Solís Sochi Hotel, the only property in Krasnaya Polyana to have “ski in, ski out” access, is just a 5-minute walk from the centre of the resort and enjoys panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. The property has been built into the mountainside with an imposing glass and stone façade, belying the blend of relaxed modern luxury and state-of-the-art technologies inside.

Solís Sochi Hotel consists of 120 elegant rooms including 13 suites, the highlight of which is the two-storey Presidential Suite measuring 487 square metres, with three bedrooms, private elevator access, butler pantry, large terrace with panoramic views and private access to the ski slopes, making it one of the largest in Russia.

Other facilities at the hotel include three food and beverage outlets, a spa and extensive function space. The Echo Ski Café offers an après-ski dining experience adjacent to the hotel’s ski locker room and ski concierge services, giving guests quick and easy access to the slopes. Later in the day, the Café’s “ski in, keep your boots on, ski out” policy means that guests can pop back for lunch and enjoy an après-ski environment at the end of the afternoon, before heading to the spa for a sauna and massage to ease tired muscles. For an elegant dining experience, The Grill serves steaks, fine European cuisine and regional specialties, with a private dining room that has its own wine room, while the Lobby Lounge is ideal for a quiet digestif before sleep beckons.

Additionally, the Solís Sochi Hotel includes a panoramic terrace off The Grill and a second rooftop terrace for special events, which has unobstructed views over the Caucasus Mountains and can be used year-round on account of a heated floor.

Solís Sochi Suites is a more intimate hotel combining the ultimate in comfort and luxury, making it perfect for romantic getaways. The setting is ideal for a mountain retreat, with most rooms having expansive views of the Caucasus Mountains and Valley below. Touch screen panels in the 52 rooms allow guests to adjust the lights and air-conditioning, without leaving their bed. Each guest room also has a refreshment centre consisting of soft drinks, juices and waters, which are complimentary to in-house guests.

Other facilities at the hotel include the food and beverage outlets Le Chalet and Lobby Lounge, and four boardrooms. Le Chalet, designed to resemble a traditional alpine venue, offers typical dishes including cheese fondue, while the Lobby Lounge is perfect for casual meals and drinks.

The bijou spa, which is open to hotel guests only, is a haven of peace, tranquillity and discretion where they can relax in the swimming pool or the various saunas/steam rooms and enjoy fabulous spa treatments, either alone or in the couple’s treatment room.

One of the highlights of Solís Sochi Suites is the Krasnaya Polyana Suite measuring 583 square metres, with private elevator access, that consists of two storeys and has seven rooms, including three bedrooms offering panoramic mountain views, two private terraces with sun beds and an infinity pool, a living room with fireplace, a spa area including a sauna, Jacuzzi and 25 square metre gym facility.

Rates at both hotels start from Roubles 8,800 (approx £170) for two people sharing a double room, including breakfast but excluding 18% VAT, rising to Roubles 750,000 (approx £14,600) for the Presidential Suite at Solís Sochi Hotel and the Krasnaya Polyana Suite at Solís Sochi Suites.

The two Solís properties are opening at an exciting time in the development of Sochi. The XXII Olympic Winter Games will be followed by the hosting of an F1 Grand Prix event in the second half of 2014 and, four years later, the resort will be one of the host cities for the FIFA World Cup competition. These high-level sporting events will place Sochi firmly on the world map and, combined with the resort’s outstanding natural beauty, will make it a “must-go” destination for all those wishing to lead the way in the travel arena.

Both hotels are easily accessible via Sochi International Airport, which is a two-hour flight from Moscow and a three-hour flight from major European cities. A new high speed train will connect the resort and the airport in just 30 minutes; the driving time is approximately 45 minutes.
