The expansion of the facility with 20 hotel rooms was the result of a steadily increasing demand for overnight accommodation in connection with the conferences and family celebrations held here.

The way the hotel has been designed, allows the rooms to blend into the hillside, while the main social areas of the hotel all have green roofs.

The hotel rooms are accessed via a corridor that is completely underground and adapts to the shape of the hill. The interior of the hotel rooms are alternated in light and dark wooden panels.
