History and infrastructure of the resort
Back in the 30s of the last century, the Soviet politician A. Zhemchuzhnikov made a lot of efforts to turn a small Georgian village into a VIP zone for the Soviet bureaucratic elite. Later, a place was organized here for gatherings of Soviet skiers and holding All-Union competitions. Independent Georgia continued to invest heavily in Bakuriani, making the village a resort of international class. To get a job in local hotels, you must be fluent in at least one foreign language.
For the arrangement of modern routes, the Georgian government invited specialists from abroad. Today, all slopes and running tracks are certified according to the FIS standard. If you do not want to climb up on the lift, then for an additional fee available heli-ski. The service consists in the fact that the instructor finds a suitable descent, and the skiers are thrown up by helicopter.
Of the additional entertainment Bakuriani can offer:
- 2 skating rinks – in the central park of the resort and on the territory of the Eden Hotel;
- snowmobile trips;
- snow jumps and three specially equipped tracks for atv racing.
The hotels offer guided hikes. The resort is located at an altitude of 1800 m above sea level.

“Great place for a family holiday with children. Everything is landscaped, up to the yards. Benches are placed everywhere, paths are laid, a children’s playground is installed. The food is excellent!

The hotel complex consists of detached holiday homes. In two-storey cottages there are 2 bedrooms with bathrooms, a common living room, a kitchen.

Displeasure is caused by a separate fee for the use of the pool and not very convenient location from the lifts.
“Clean rooms but hard beds. When booking in small print, a tourist tax of 20GEL per room is added, so we were surprised by the higher price on arrival. A complex procedure for paying for a room, part is paid by the hotel, and the rest is paid by the owner of the room, which is not in place, so we receive the invoice number and send the transfer through the paybox.
