Foreigner couple with entrepreneurial past launched their idea in Lagodekhi. American Nicole and spanish Alejandro have been living in Georgia for 3 years.
Duende is an exclusive, hard-to-translate Spanish word. The high quality feel and inspiration, the essence of passion – is Duende. The concept of the hotel is just that – feel the quality and get inspiration where the desire and love is the main ingredient. The place where locals and guests are equal and can get experience in contact with each other. Duende was designed and built with the residents of Ninogori and Khiza villages. We worked as a society and set as our priority to improve the quality of life around Duende. This includes the unique experience of the guest, as well as the possibility for locals to find their place, their own call and make their own life better.
Duende is a thoughtful love. We believe that we can create a distinctive experience for guests, by magic rules and unique design. The user experience here is different from the big hotels. Everything here, even the smallest detail, is well thought out and we hope that from the moment when the guest enters the Duende, he finds inspiration, a new feeling, a relationship with himself and that he can share anything. Duende, as the cottage has the flexibility to offer guests any order, whatever adventure they can get from Lagodekhi region. It’s like a romantic proposal, as well as an adventure hike, a unique “bird’s view”, or a place where you can relax and fill with new energy.
Duende is currently in the first phase. The second phase involves the development of a reception, kitchen, lounge and training center. We can provide education services for both the guests and the locals. Next we think about adding 2-3 new wooden houses, swimming pool and saunas, massage opportunities to improve the experience of your visit. It should be noted that further development is needed to invest.
