The wellness-focused Agobili Hotel and Spa scheme aims to bring contemporary Scandinavian design to the lush forests of Georgia’s Otschke River Valley.

An exciting development is taking shape in the former Soviet republic.

Putting wellness centre stage

Agobili Hotel and Spa, which is currently under construction, is part of the Abastumani spa resort, pairing luxury with tranquility on the southern slopes of the Lesser Caucasus. Designed by Henning Larsen (architecture and interiors), Dmark (architecture) and Mad Made Land (landscape design), this beautiful project commissioned by Redix is expected to reach completion in the second quarter of 2023.

The Abastumani spa was a famous rejuvenative retreat during the 19th century, welcoming the tsar’s family and other affluent tourists. Its mountainous landscape, blanketed with snow throughout winter, has long been celebrated for its dry mountain air, warm thermal baths and lush forest.

A connection to nature

The 200-key property will combine this region’s wellness traditions with a new vision for health and connection with nature.

The design concept revolves around three core elements: mountain, forest and sky. It’s envisaged that the property will clearly tell the story of these elements and its setting, while also drawing on local heritage.

There’ll be a solid plinth of public spaces built into the mountainside, with all of the guestrooms positioned on top. Each modern guestroom will be clad with natural timber in an effort to further connect guests with the beautifully forested landscape outside.
