Rezidor announced the scheduled opening of the Radisson Blu Resort Tsinandali (Georgia) in 2014.
The property features 100 rooms and is in Tsinandali, which lies in the province of Kakheti, one of the tourism regions of Georgia; east of the capital city Tbilisi and bordered by the Greater Caucasus Mountains to the North.
The hotel, surrounded by 19th century vineyards and botanical gardens, is of historical significance. The Tsinandali estate includes two museums, one to the aristocratic poet Prince Alexander Chavchavdze, who built the winery in the first half of the 19th century, and the second to the rich variety of Georgian wine and gastronomy.
The new hotel building, designed by New York based architect John Fotiadis in contemporary style, will be partly linked to the rehabilitated wine estate. It will include 100 rooms, a specialist gourmet restaurant with outdoor terrace, a lounge, as well as cigar and pool bars. Uniquely, the property will feature an original wine cellar of over 43,000 square feet, exclusively available for special occasions and tastings.
Additional leisure facilities comprise extensive spa facilities of over 1,000sqm, treatment rooms, a gym, a relaxation area, and an infinity swimming pool with breathtaking views of the Caucasus Mountain range.
