Batumi in Georgia gets new hotel investment


Georgia’s Black Sea coast is getting an $8.4-million investment for a new hotel complex in Batumi. The 105-room hotel is expected to open in 2019.

Local development firm House in Alley, which purchased land in the city's Heroes Alley neighborhood through privatization, laid the foundation for the project this week. This will be the first project in the frame of the Heroes Alley Development Concept, which was developed by the local Adjara government last year. 

The Adjara government stated other new hotels, residential apartments, restaurants, entertainment facilities and sport centers would soon be built in Heroes Alley and announced two more investment projects are planned to begin in the near future.
