Capella Telluride, Colorado

Capella Telluride, the  first US  retreat for Capella Hotels and Resorts, welcomed its first guests last week. Telluride’s snow-packed terrain is a favourite this season, rated the number two ski resort in North America by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler. And ski enthusiasts can satisfy their wanderlust thanks to Capella Telluride’s special introductory winter rate of $295. Located in the heart of Mountain Village, every detail of Capella Telluride’s boutique setting has been designed for the most discerning traveler. Guests enjoy coveted ski-in/ski-out access to famed Telluride Ski Resort, and are pampered by the complimentary services of the Nordic Lounge, where ski valet pre-warm boots, wax skis and offer warm beverages while they store guests’ equipment. Personal Assistants are a core element of the Capella Telluride experience, each skilled in the fine art of preferential service, ensuring every moment of a visit is custom-crafted, whether guests desire a first-run on untouched ski trails or a backcountry dogsled tour with an expert guide. To gear up for the slopes, Capella’s Fitness Center features the latest equipment. And for tired muscles, The Spa at Capella and its pool area – opening 15th March 2009 – will be a welcomed respite, offering a unique approach to mountain wellness. In the interim, a wide-selection of spa experiences will be offered to guests in the privacy of their accommodations.

For apres-ski aperitifs or a mid-day lunch, guests will find Suede Bar an elegant – yet comfortable – perch. Haute alpine cuisine, the brainchild of Chef Kenny Gilbert, is available during breakfast and dinner at Onyx Restaurant. The more casual Gray Jay Cafe, featuring “grab-and-go” gourmet, will debut Summer 2009. For special events and important meetings, Capella Telluride’s Idarado Ballroom and Jasper Room offer true inspiration for great gatherings and the Kids Club is dedicated to younger guests.
