Starwood to bring Meridien brand to Republic of Georgia

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide's Paris-born Le Méridien brand will open in Batumi, marking the brand’s first location in the Republic of Georgia. Scheduled to open in 2018 in partnership with Red-Co Ltd, the 110-room new-construction hotel will be located in the Batumi Tower, a mixed-use development project that also includes a casino and unbranded residences. Designed by the Hausart Project, the landmark Batumi Tower is the tallest structure in the city and has a unique eight-cabin carousel wheel on the 27th floor.

Located in southwest Georgia on the Black Sea, Batumi is a popular resort destination and the country’s summer holiday capital. Le Méridien Batumi will be located within the heart of the city center, situated on the boulevard along the Black Sea, just steps away from the port of Batumi and adjacent to the Dancing Fountains.

The hotel will overlook the Black Sea and is expected to have two restaurants. The interiors of Le Méridien Batumi will be designed by Tbilisi-based design firm Rooms.
