Hilton Hotels & Resorts has opened its first hotel in the Black Sea Port of Batumi, Georgia.
Hilton Batumi started welcoming guests today following a management agreement with Tourinvest.
The 247-room contemporary property, which includes 15 suites, offers guests breath-taking views over the Black Sea, mountains and the neighbouring Dolphinarium.
The property boasts a unique range of dining options from Tandila Lobby Café Bar and all day dining restaurant, Pelion, to the stunning views from the Nephele Sky Bar which offers some of the best cocktails in the city.
The hotel provides the perfect setting for any occasion – from business lunches or drinks with friends, to special celebratory dinners.
Simon Vincent, executive vice president & president, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Hilton Worldwide said: “We are extremely excited to be opening our first hotel in Batumi, which has long been an important port and commercial centre given its abundance of rich agricultural produce.

Ideally located just 50 metres from the May 6th Park and Batumi Seaside Park Boulevard, the hotel is within walking distance to a number of bars, cafes and restaurants.
