1. You (probably) don’t need a Visa to visit.
Citizens of most countries don’t need a Visa to travel to Georgia for up to a year. And all citizens of the European Union can even travel with just their ID card. But even if you are from one of the few countries that require a Visa, chances are you qualify to apply for an e-Visa online, without the hassle of going to the Georgian diplomatic mission or consulate. Find out about particular requirements for your country by clicking here, so you can start planning your perfect vacation.
2. Getting here has never been cheaper or easier.
With three international airports in Batumi, Tbilisi, and Kutaisi, there are currently over 30 airlines flying to and from Georgia every year. In fact, passenger traffic has increased by 46.96% in the first five months of 2017 alone.
If you’re a first-time visitor, for a full Georgian experience VOGUE recommends flying into the metropolitan Tbilisi and spending a day or two exploring the Georgian capital, before taking a train through the resplendent countryside and ending at Batumi.
For a little extra luxury, you can hop on a VanillaSky plane for a swift 45 minute flight. Batumi International Airport is located a mere 2 kilometers from the city, and a free transfer to and from your flight is included with your booking at one of our luxury apartments at Batumi Paradise.
3. You’ll be surrounded by stunning nature.
Sloping hills, protected areas, and beautiful coastline come together for an outstanding experience in Ajara. Batumi beach is mostly pebble, but it’s over 10 kilometers long (the Batumi Boulevard runs along 7 of those kilometers), which means you’ll be able to find a secluded spot of the beach even during the busiest months of summer.
Make sure to set aside a day for a visit to the Batumi Botanical Garden. Over a century old, the garden boasts one of the widest varieties of flora in the world. It sprawls across 111 hectares and contains flora from nine phyto-geographic areas: East Asia, North America, New Zealand, South America, the Himalayas, Mexico, Australia, the Mediterranean, and the Caucasian humid subtropics.
For a little trip into the past visit the Petra Fortress, built during the 6th century A.D. The fortress is one of the most significant monuments on the entire eastern coast of the Black Sea, it used to hold an important strategic position at the crossroads of the route linking Georgia with Iran and Armenia.
If you love to stay active even on vacation, challenge yourself with a biking route. The Batumi — Mirveti Village — Batumi cycling route makes it possible to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life and enjoy nature at its best. This 50 kilometer route will take you through authentic local villages, forests and citrus gardens, past picturesque waterfalls and rivers, as well as offer truly picture-worthy panoramic views of the Black Sea. You’ll find a map of the area and a suggested itinerary in your Batumi Paradise welcome package when you check in.
4. You can wine and dine like royalty.
Georgian cuisine is bursting with spices of mouthwatering flavors. You’ll find plenty of meat and vegetarian options alike, along with copious amounts of beautiful wines.
A must-have in Batumi is Ajarian khachapuri: a boat-shaped flatbread filled with molten cheese, egg, and a generous slab of butter. Retro and Terassa Askaneli serve up some of the best khachapuri in town. For more of our favorite dining places visit the Batumi Paradise where to go page.
If you’re a true wine connoisseur, ask us to book you a visit to the Ajarian Wine House, a small winery and restaurant tucked into the picturesque mountains a mere 15 minute drive from downtown Batumi.
And because we know you’re bound to fall in love with the local flavors, if you stay at one of our luxury vacation apartments, we’ve put together a bundle of essential Georgian spices in your Batumi Paradise welcome package, so you can take a piece of Georgia home with you.
5. Let all of your pent-up tension bleed out at a Spa.
With the current exchange rate of just under two and a half lari to a dollar, you can turn every day into a spa day. Pay a visit to the Eforea Spa at the Hilton and try a Georgian Corn & Salt Scrub with Vichy. Alternatively, enjoy a relaxing massage right at your Batumi Paradise apartment, or directly at the beach, from our in-house trained masseuse.
