PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

A one-time Soviet sanatorium that's been given a hip modern makeover, Rooms Hotel Kazbegi in Georgia is a slice of contemporary cool in the middle of some spectacular mountain scenery. It's the perfect setting for a Wes Anderson-eque adventure, where the stars – you – are ably abetted by a supporting cast of expert local guides, eager to introduce you to the intricacies of this intriguing East-meets-West part of the world. Flawless service from the bedecked-in-red staff gives a luxe gleam to the quirkily chic decor, which seems all the more whimsical in the heart of some decidedly wild terrain.

FACILITIES

Sauna, gym, free WiFi throughout, laundry. In rooms: a television; air-conditioning; a minibar; free bottled water; and tea- and coffee-making kit.

PACKING TIPS

Bring your hiking boots if you're heading up the mountains on foot… or just your camera if you prefer to ascend in the chopper.

POOL

The large indoor pool has mountain views, but it's pleasantly heated so swimmers stay cosy while gazing at the snow. There are loungers on the terrace, which stretches outdoors (ideal for lazing about on sunny days).

ALSO

All public spaces are wheelchair accessible, and two rooms are specially adapted.

USEFUL INFORMATION

If travelling with children, please contact the Smith Travel Team as children under the age of 7 eat free of charge, and at a discounted cost (50% of the adult breakfast fee) if aged 7-12.

Rooms 

Your biggest decision when booking your trip is: mountain or forest? Both views are wondrous, but it's the snow-capped peaks that've stolen our hearts, so we'd opt for a mountain-view room. Almost all rooms are essentially identical, thanks to that good-old Soviet architecture, but splash out on a Signature room for more space and a few extra-Instagrammable design flourishes.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

Traditional Georgian delights are served up alongside Western European dishes in the spacious ground-floor restaurant. The food's delicious and the service superlative, but the real star is the views. The inspiring landscape's left its mark on the menu, too: the chefs collaborate with local suppliers from the nearby town of Stepantsminda and throughout the region, with the goal of introducing dishes passed down through generations to a new audience.

Liquid Bliss 

Adjoining the restaurant, the bar's a laid-back and hospitable spot for cocktails, with a chilled-out soundtrack and plenty of classics on the menu (Moscow Mule, anyone?) There's an inpressive array of cigars on offer, too.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Exporing is the name of the Northern Georgian game: you've admired the mountain and forest views from your window, now get out and roam around in 'em. Rooms Hotel can arrange plenty of excursions and there's even an in-house team of expert guides ready to help you discover the region, from hikes of a few hours to days-long adventures. The iconic Gergeti Trinity Church is a must-visit spot if you like your vistas vast and want to get a sense of community life – it's a splendidly isolated 14th century site, but still hosts regular Orthodox services. The edenic setting of the Gveleti Waterfall is well worth the hike, or 4x4 ride if you're a less energetic sort; an extended adventure could see you venturing to the far-off village of Juta and spending the night in a shepherd's hut (shepherd not included). And if you fall head-over-heels for gorgeous Georgia and want to see more, ask Rooms' guides about travelling further afield: they can arrange excursions all over the country, from back in the capital Tbilisi – stay at equally hip sister properties Rooms Hotel Tbilisi and Stamba Hotel – or all the way out by the sea at Batumi.

Transportation 

Kazbegi's on the northeastern edge of Georgia, near the small town of Stepantsminda.

Planes 

You’ll probably fly to Tbilisi. (The hotel's actually closer to the Russian border than the Georgian capital, but there aren't any handy airports over that side.) Georgian Airways flights from around Europe touch down at Shota Rustaveli Tbilisi International Airport (TBS)

Automobiles 

While you could technically drive yourself the three hours from Tbilisi, we wouldn’t particularly recommend it. You’ll have a more relaxing journey if you arrange a transfer (plus you'll have hands free to Instagram the views).

Other 

Helicopter transfers are expected to be available from Tbilisi soon.
