Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company by number of properties with approximately 9,000 hotels across nearly 95 countries, announced the debut of its newest brand, Registry Collection Hotels, in Georgia with a flagship 100-room newly-built property in the heart of the capital city of Tbilisi. Slated to open in early 2023, the ART Tbilisi, a Registry Collection Hotel, will be located in the picturesque district of Abanotubani, one of the most sought-after locations in the old town.
Wyndham recently introduced its 21st brand, Registry Collection Hotels, with the opening of the Grand Residences Riviera Cancun in June 2021, adding a luxury offering to the upper end of its growing brand portfolio. Handpicked to deliver incredible experiences in spectacular destinations, Registry Collection Hotels combine individuality with thoughtful design and world-class service. From unique architectural details to dream-worthy locations, every stay with Registry Collection Hotels is meant to be as unique and indulgent as the hotels themselves.
Nestled on a hill with spectacular views of the bustling old city and its traditional brick houses, the new build property will offer guests a tranquil retreat in a stunning part of Tbilisi with easy access to many attractions, including its historic hot springs and sulphuric baths, located just opposite the hotel. It will boast sophisticated interiors and stylish guest rooms, including a mix of suites, deluxe and executive accommodation options. The new hotel will also feature an elegant restaurant serving local delicacies, as well a rooftop wine bar with access to a lush garden overlooking the sulphuric baths and Mtkvari river. Other features will include a modern fitness centre and wellness area with its own private thermal bathhouse and sauna. Guests of the hotel will also have access to premium airport transfers and convenient valet parking on-site.
Dimitris Manikis, President for Europe, Middle East, Eurasia and Africa (EMEA) at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, said: “Our newest brand is the perfect option for independent luxury hotel owners who want to maintain their independent spirit while tapping into the global scale, capability and loyalty of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, which is even more relevant as the industry recovers from the challenges of the global pandemic.
