The opening of the hotel in Batumi, the Republic of Georgia, is nothing less than part of Sheraton's three-year expansion plan aimed at adding 50 more properties to its existing portfolio. Located on the eastern coast of the Black Sea, it is styled to resemble the Batumi lighthouse of Alexandria erected by Alexander the Great in 290 B. C.
Due to its highly beneficial geographic location near the sea and in the vicinity of major highways and railroads and one of the largest sea ports in the region, Batumi has become an attraction for investors. The construction of such a hotel is a milestone event for a region with budding economy. Sheraton Batumi Hotel is designed for both business and leisure travelers.
The hotel features 203 rooms and 43 suits; there is also one penthouse offering a fascinating view of the sea. There is an all-day restaurant 'Sunflower', and a lounge restaurant 'Veronica' with a bar area. There is also a large ball room, several conference rooms and a latest-day business center. Guests can enjoy outdoor swimming pools, a spa center and Sheraton Fitness - a professionally designed fitness center.
