One of the most impressive buildings in the city, Sheraton Batumi is a top-notch five star hotel. The lounge area has an odd interior; a mix of library, art gallery and open space office area, but somehow it is comfortable and cosy. There are couple of computers for guest use and a non-smoking area. The Sunflower restaurant, next to the lounge, serves breakfasts from 06:30 - 10:30. One of three high-tech lifts takes you to all 21 floors of the hotel, including a 300 sq m Penthouse on the top. Rooms are large and spacious, decorated in dark grey colours, each with a sea view through a glass wall. There is also a bathtub in every room and the amenities you would expect from a five star hotel. Veronica restaurant on the 20th floor has spectacular views over Batumi and serves Georgian and International cuisine. The hotel’s spa centre, located on the 2nd floor it is the best we’ve seen in Georgia. An enormous area with a 11x21 metre swimming pool, a children’s swimming pool, fitness and aerobic rooms, a sauna, Jucuzzis, a resting area and fantastic Turkish bath. There is also an outdoor swimming pool, located in the park area, 25 metres from the hotel. The Sheraton is also the only animal friendly hotel we found in the city. Prices exclude VAT.
