BATUMI, Georgia and MCLEAN, Va. - 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 Ltd.

The 247-room contemporary property, which includes 15 suites, offers guests breathtaking 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. Over the last five years, stimulated by a combination of renovation, construction and Georgia's favourable visa policies, Batumi has increasingly developed as an exciting and prospering tourism hub."

Ideally located just 50 metres from the 6 May Park and Batumi Seaside Park Boulevard, the hotel is within walking distance to a number of bars, cafes and restaurants. The hotel is also a great base to explore nearby tourist attractions including the Art Museum of Batumi, Batumi Botanical Garden, Gonio Apsaros Fortress and National Park Mtirala. Hilton Batumi is also conveniently located close to key transport hubs including Batumi International Airport and a central train station, just 6.8 km and 8 km away respectively, making the hotel an ideal choice for both leisure and business travellers.

Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide said: "Batumi is not only one of the most beautiful cities in Georgia but continues to be recognized as a distinguished tourist center on the Black Sea. Hilton is a growing presence across Eastern Europe and the opening of Hilton Batumi, with its magnificent design and stunning views over the Black Sea, marks an exciting addition to the Hilton portfolio."
