Carlson Rezidor is planning to expand its hotel presence in Georgia by opening a new hotel in the country’s east. The hotel chain will open a Radisson Blu Tsinandali Hotel in Georgia’s famous wine-making Kakheti province, one of the most popular tourism regions of Georgia; east of the capital city Tbilisi and bordered by the Greater Caucasus Mountains to the North.
The new Radisson Blue Tsinandali will cover a beautiful historical region, surrounded by 19th Century vineyards and botanical gardens. Consistent with its location, the resort will comprise of two museums; one that honours Prince Alexander Chavchavdze – the aristocratic poet who built the winery, and the other celebrating Georgia’s wide-ranging gastronomy and wines.
The new hotel building, designed by New York-based architect John Fotiadis in contemporary style, will be in harmony with, and 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 4,000sqm, 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.
Radisson Blu Tsinandali will be the first-ever international hotel brand in Kakheti and the hotel construction will end by 2018.
