New Coliseum Shaped Luxurious Hotel Opens in Batumi

A new five star luxury hotel has opened in Georgia’s costal city Batumi.

The new five-star Coliseum Marina Hotel in the shape and design of an elliptical amphitheater like the ones of ancient Rome has opened today in the seaside city of Batumi in Georgia’s western Adjara region.

This is the third hotel to open among 20 planned projects implemented this year in Batumi.

The construction of the hotel began in March 2013 and Mari Group invested $14 million to build the 10-storey hotel with 101 rooms, all with a view of the Black Sea coastline. The facility has a total area of 14,427 m sq.

Georgia’s Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili opened the Coliseum Marina Hotel with representatives of the local government. He highlighted that the new Coliseum shaped luxury hotel will attract more tourists to Batumi.

“This year 20 projects of new hotels are ongoing in Batumi, in total an amount of $700 million has been invested. This indicates that demand is growing and the numbers of tourists are increasing in Batumi and in the region itself. Tourism is growing in Georgia and it is necessary for the state to support and encourage business,” Garibashvili said.

Currently, the hotel has 100 employees. Once the hotel is fully operational about 170 people will work there.
