There are a number of high quality hotels in Sochi but Lifestyle Magazine recommends the Grand Hotel and Spa Rodina. With 5 star rated dining, hotel and spa facilities the Grand Hotel and Spa Rodina is the most exclusive place to stay in Sochi outside of the Olympic village. Flying into Sochi International Airport via jet and settling into your hotel room couldn’t be easier as the Grand Hotel and Spa Rodina is located only a few miles east of the Airport, meaning a quick and stressless journey.
Lifestyle Magazine will be cheering on Team GB in their quest for Olympic glory in Sochi. One of the teams brightest stars is 18 year old half pipe skier Rowan Cheshire. In January, the teenager became the first British female skier to win half pipe gold at a World Cup event in Calgary, Canada. She is currently ranked number seven in the world and looks to continue her winning ways by bringing home a gold medal for Team GB.
