The hotel boasts and swimming pool and sauna. Rooms options include single, family and deluxe suites. Mesmerizing views of the mountains can be enjoyed through floor to ceiling windows or roof terraces with many of the rooms. Guests can ski, snowboard, do yoga, enjoy fine Georgian wine at the bar along with all kinds of other activities. The nearest ski lifts are a five-minute walk.
Key points include:
- Made out of re-purposed shipping containers.
- It is 7,200ft/2,200 metres above sea level.
- Its the first ’boutique hotel’ in the Caucasus mountains.

Each of the containers serve as rooms and run lengthwise, as expected with such a long and narrow space. The containers are elevated on stilts and connected by corridors and walk-ways. This considerably reduces the impact on the local environment.

The hotel is built in a minimalist style and elegantly cascades down the mountainside. The whole philosophy behind the project is to protect the local environment from the harmful effects of buildings and leisure activities.
