In 1929 at the age of 19, Don Nahoum Spiwak left his native Russia and immigrated to Colombia. Leaving that oppressive and overwhelming economic, political, and social atmosphere, he was seeking new horizons to better his life. Colombia welcomed him with open arms, and there he found tolerance, open-mindedness, and appreciation for new economic initiatives.
Arriving with no money and not knowing the local language and culture, his first few years in Colombia were characterized by hard work and sacrifice, but his efforts slowly bore fruit.
The first building Don Nahoum Spiwak erected in 1946 is still standing and is located on La Calle 23 between Carreras 18 and 19 (in the Santa Fe district of Bogotá).
That was the beginning of the construction company that in 1966 built the Hotel Dann Ave 19 which, 45 years later, is the primary hotel chain in Colombia.
Don Angel Spiwak, the youngest of the Spiwak children, worked with the construction and opening of the new hotels in the chain. In 1976 in Cali he built and opened his first hotel on Avenida Colombia No. 1-20.
Using his experience in the hospitality and construction industry, Don Angel Spiwak developed the concept of a hotel modern in every sense of the word—architecturally, structurally, operationally. The new Hotel Spiwak Chipichape Cali is the product of that vision, where everything is possible!!!
Expanding that vision, Spiwak Hotels will be five-star hotels located in the main cities of Colombia and the rest of South America. The new chain will include a unique product, the Stancia Spiwak in Colombia, an extended-stay hotel offering the same services and details characteristic of the entire group of hotels.
