Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili visited the Samtskhe-Javakheti region in southern Georgia yesterday to check on the progress of several projects aiming to boost the tourism potential of the area.
While there the Prime Minister opened a new five-star hotel in Borjomi, a town famous for the eponymous mineral water internationally known as a hangover cure.
Borjomi has a very strategic touristic location as it is close to Bakuriani - one of Georgia’s main skiing resorts - and the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park, which is among the country’s largest protected areas.
The company behind the new hotel was global hotel chain, InterContinental Hotels Group. The company invested $32 million USD in Crowne Plaza Borjomi.
