Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., in partnership with Red-Co Ltd, will debut its Paris-born Le Méridien brand in the Republic of Georgia’s Spectacular Resort Destination in 2018. The 110-room newly constructed hotel will showcase modern architecture and design as part of a mixed-use development project that also includes a casino and unbranded residences.
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 centre, ideally situated on the boulevard along the stunning Black Sea, just steps away from the port of Batumi and adjacent to the captivating Dancing Fountains.
The 110 modern guest rooms and suites will offer sweeping Black Sea views and will feature the signature Le Méridien Bed, a spacious work area and functional technology with modern design elements. The curated culinary offerings in the two restaurants promise discovery of new tastes while the Explore Spa, swimming pool and fitness centre will provide guests the opportunity to relax and unwind. The interiors of Le Méridien Batumi will be designed by Tbilisi-based design firm Rooms.
The newly constructed hotel will showcase modern architecture and design within the iconic Batumi Tower. Designed by the Hausart Project, the landmark Batumi Tower is the tallest structure in the city and features a unique eight-cabin carousel wheel on the 27th floor.
“We are thrilled to expand our presence in Georgia, a growing market at the crossroads of Asia and Europe,” said Bart Carnahan, Senior Vice President, Acquisitions & Development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East. “Le Méridien Batumi will join our Sheraton Batumi and Sheraton Metechi Palace hotels in the Republic of Georgia, and will be a great addition to the vibrant city of Batumi.”
