Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, in partnership with Red-Co Ltd., has announced that its Paris-born Le Méridien brand will open in Batumi.
Scheduled to open in 2017, the 110-room newly constructed hotel will showcase modern architecture and design within the Batumi Tower, a mixed-use development project that also includes a casino and unbranded residences. Designed by Hausart Project, the landmark Batumi Tower is the tallest structure in the city and features an eight-cabin carousel wheel on the 27th floor.
The brand’s signature amenities, including Le Méridien Hub – the brand’s transformation of the traditional hotel lobby into an experiential space for guests to converse, socialise and exchange – will feature in the new project. In terms of F&B offerings, the trademark Latitude Bar will serve coffee specialties and light bites from the brand’s long-term partner, Illy, alongside two additional restaurants. The guestrooms and suites will boast Black Sea views and feature the hallmark Le Méridien Bed, a spacious work area, with interiors by Tbilisi-based design firm, Rooms. The hotel itself will also include an Explore Spa, swimming pool, and fitness centre.
