Tbilisi and its Bath Houses

Having been the capital of Georgia for more than 1,500 years, Tbilisi is rich in history. However, as a city that hints at a new-found wealth, Tbilisi is undoubtedly changing. Spend a day visiting the sites and exploring the Old Town including the Narikala Fortress, the Metekhi Church and Citadel, the nearby sulphur springs and 18th-century Persian-style royal baths.

Visiting the sulphur bathhouses in the Abanotubani area of Tbilisi is an experience, especially during the winter months when it’s colder. Today many people visit for a soak, scrub and traditional massage beneath the domed roofs. We recommend Orbeliani Bathhouse with its beautiful mosque like exterior and slick operation inside.

Explore Kazbegi and Surrounds

From Kazbegi, we recommend visiting the 14th century Trinity Church at Gergeti with your private guide. Offering breath-taking views of the Caucasus Mountains, the church is only accessible on foot or by 4×4. Afterwards, continue by vehicle to the Dariali Canyon, close to the Russian border and deep in the mountains. Don’t miss the beautiful 30-metre-high Gveleti Waterfall before returning to the capital. Also close to Kazbegi is the interesting ancient cave town of Uplistsikhe and the Joseph Stalin Museum at Gori. A good idea is to base yourself at the comfortable chic Rooms Hotel Kazbegi and use Kazbegi as your home from home whilst visiting the sites from the comfort of this contemporary hotel.

Once a publishing house, every effort has been made to preserve the history of the original building, while creating a boutique hotel in a creative area of Tbilisi. Historic features include high ceilings and warehouse-style windows, with an interior design harking back to New York in the 1930s. Leather, velvet, reclaimed wood, handmade wallpaper and local artwork combine to create an elegant yet bohemian feel. Built over eight floors, the 125 rooms and suites are spacious and full of character. All have views of either the city or gardens and those on the fifth floor have terraces with views over the city.
