International Hospitality Leader Sacha Jurva Joins Alyeska Resort as General Manager

Sacha Jurva

Sacha Jurva brings decades of international hospitality management experience to his new role as General Manager for Alyeska Resort. He has previously operated world-class hotels in Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, and North America—eleven different countries on four continents. In his most recent role as general manager for Warwick Hotel in Denver, Jurva oversaw a $20 million refurbishment and modernization, experience that will benefit Alyeska as it opens a 50,000-square-foot Nordic Spa and other resort renovations.

“Sacha is an exceptional leader in the hospitality sector, whose work throughout the last twenty-plus years more than speaks for itself,” says Stefan Nasalski, president of Alyeska’s parent company, Pomeroy Lodging. “With many exciting upcoming projects to look forward to at Alyeska Resort, we are thrilled to have Sacha’s experience onboard to lead our local team.”

“Alaska already feels like home to my family,” says Jurva. “It’s remarkably similar to my hometown in Finland, with the cold winters and beautiful outdoors year-round. I’m truly looking forward to exploring this great state and working with the incredible staff to continue making Alyeska a world class resort in Alaska.”
