Levan Eristavi, the co-owner, says: „We wanted to create a hotel that would answer the needs of Georgian tourism industry – a hotel which would be equally comfortable for families and for business travellers. The goal was to create modern interiors with the local authenticity. The outstanding location and best service will be one of our main competitive advantages. The Kakheti region has a great potential, where tourism flow annually increases significantly and at the same time it becomes even more attractive location for locals. Tourism sector development is one of the key strategies for the developing country such as Georgia and our team is proud to contribute to this important process. It was a priority for us to create a workplace within the international standards. Majority of employees are locals, which partly solve unemployment difficulties in the region. Their training is intensively taking into consideration intentional standards. The project was also greatly supported by the Enterprise Georgia Agency and European Bank of Reconstruction and Development, under the strategy of development of touristic infrastructure and creation of international level workspaces in the regions of Georgia. I am extremely happy with the result we have achieved alongside IHG and I look forward to becoming a particularly distinguished destination for the international or local segment.
