VIPs Only: A Look at a Hospitality House That Only Olympians Get Access to in Rio

In Rio, away from the hectic, dormitory feel of the Olympic Village, you'll find "hospitality houses" spread all across the city. Though some are open to the public, most are private and reserved strictly for Olympic athletes and their guests. And while the majority of these houses are set up by host countries - The Team USA House, for instance - more and more brands are getting in on the action. In Rio, for instance, Oakley, Asics, and Nike are just a few of the major players providing athletes with places to escape.

As a guest of Oakley during the Rio Games, I had the unique opportunity of visiting its impressive (and exclusive) hospitality house, aka The Oakley Safe House.

". . . We wanted to give athletes a place where they could rest, recover, and prepare for their next competition and enjoy their time in Brazil," said Greg Welch, Oakley's global sports marketing manager for the Olympics. "From the food and entertainment to the outdoor experience and vibe, The Oakley Safe House has become a home away from home for many of the world's best athletes."

After looking at these images, you can see that Oakley accomplished just that.
