Where to stay in Kvariati (Batumi)
Great hotel. Rooms are new, balconies overlooking the sea, 5 minutes walk to the pebble beach. The sea is wavy but you can swim, in July the water was very warm. Hospitable and friendly staff. Very tasty and varied breakfasts at the hotel. Unfortunately we only stayed for 2 days, because of bad weather (it rained) we had to leave, but we really hope to come back to Hotel Egrisi again! On the beach.
The best place in Adjara. It’s quiet, peaceful. The beach is huge nearby. Markets, gas station, hair salon. The hotel is not on the road. But the beach is within walking distance. The hotel has a great breakfast! Nearby is a family cafe. The hotel staff is super!

Good hotel, close to the sea. All rooms have balconies and air conditioning. Probably worth a small cosmetic repairs. Bathroom was my room was amazing with lots of features and a huge bathtub.
The location is great, wonderful views, and the staff was super friendly: Georgi solved problems instantly. Lela, the cook, made breakfasts individually for our daughter: cheesecakes, kasha, pancakes. We stayed and worked for 15 days, we left satisfied and happy.
Wonderful place. Very beautiful location. The friendly and attentive staff. Would definitely recommend.
The location is great and the rooms are clean. But it is almost impossible to eat, there is nothing or the kitchen is constantly out of order. Make sure you stock up on food. There is absolutely nowhere to eat nearby.
Very friendly staff! Rooms are clean and nice and the food is good. Also the view is very nice.
Great hotel. Very good price and quality. Very friendly staff. The view from the room is gorgeous. I recommend it.
Very nice view from the balcony. Clean beach, cleaned the rooms, very good food in the cafe! Thank you, the stay was wonderful.
July 2021. Nice place, quiet, clean beach, not a lot of people. Rightfully considered the best beach in Georgia. ❤️ The hotel is on the very beach. All the windows of our room on the 5th floor overlooked the sea. The room is large and clean, we vacation with two children (4-bed). In the room air conditioner, refrigerator. There is a table and chairs on the big balcony. The hotel has a restaurant on the outdoor terrace, a large selection of dishes and wines, some homemade.
A great place! The hotel is right on the coast. The restaurant has good food. If you have a car, it’s best to live by the sea in Kvariati, and go for a walk to Batumi. It’s only 5 minutes away.
A good hotel in a great location. Hospitable hosts. Nice cafe at the hotel. Great view from the rooms (except for the first floor and possibly the second floor).
Gorgeous green courtyard with a children’s playground. Very welcoming staff. Great food at very reasonable prices.
Had a vacation in June 2018. Everything is great! Loved the friendly atmosphere and service!

It’s a little paradise on earth Everything was great. Very glad I chose this particular hotel. It is a 5 minute drive to the sea. But for me that’s great. Since I wanted less hustle and bustle. The locations here surpassed themselves❤❤❤ you can sit for hours and look at the sea and mountains The owners are very nice and responsive people as well as all the staff. Thank you. Would definitely recommend to all friends and acquaintances.
Amazing views! The restaurant service is fast. But the taste of the dishes leave much to be desired.
Beautiful views, good restaurant, tasty food. The rooms are ordinary. Despite the external pathos prices are not high, which is nice. I had a really great stay at this hotel.
We had a lovely stay at the hotel, everything was fantastic!) Georgia is happy as always. I recommend it to everyone.
This is a family hotel with homelike atmosphere and tasty food. It has a restaurant with Georgian cuisine, apartments of different sizes, several public pools and a huge area with a gorgeous view of the sea and the mountains.
We stayed there in 19 year. What a wonderful place. Inexpensive restaurant, kind owners, room service every day. Super! You will not regret it!
Was here in 2018. Wonderful hotel, friendly staff, great location! Recommended to stay!
Hotel on the beach. Cozy, small in a Soviet style. Felt like my grandmother’s house. Located in a picturesque place. It is better to take rooms with a view of the mountains. Food can be ordered in a small restaurant in the hotel itself, they cook tasty and homemade.
The food is cooked tasty and homemade, even if there are some shortcomings, they are remedied by the hospitality, cordiality and attention of the owners and staff. Very good food, respect! Great location, 3 minutes from the sea. Beautiful view around, in particular from the window. We fell in love with the place on the very first day.
Guesthouse “otseba” is located on the second line of Kvariati, 15 km from Batumi. The hotel met on arrival, the room is standard, clean, cozy! The staff is friendly, the hostess Nonna is very welcoming! The sea is across the street, visible from the balcony! The weather is great, the air is clean and pleasant! Attitude to guests from Russia is excellent! We recommend not to give up on your vacation in Georgia!
I liked everything very much. Clean, cozy large room. Clean white linen and towels. Tasty food. Friendly people. Everything is super. My family is happy.
I liked the hotel very much. New, clean, large beautiful rooms, all things considered, everything for the guests! Breakfast was delicious and satisfying. The hospitality of the owners in words can not tell! Near a clean and nice beach with the ability to drink coffee near the water! Thank you!
It was a great place to stay. Super modern hotel with everything you need for your vacation. Really can’t think of anything to complain about. The hotel has wonderful hosts who do everything to make the visitors feel comfortable. At the moment there is only breakfast buffet, but in 2020 they promise a full-fledged cafe or restaurant. We managed to stay in 3 rooms, including a suite. The suite is basic.
Paradise and nothing but. Just a fairy tale and clean. Not so cheap, but maybe right, otherwise the transformation into Turkey will be ((( We will come back and not once, already with children
Hotel Giorgi kvariati is located in Kvariati, 2.3 km from Sarpi Beach and Gonio Fortress, and 3.9 km from Gonio Fortress. It offers a garden and free private parking. It offers family rooms and a terrace.
Eva Hotel is located in the village of Kvariati, 50 metres from the Black Sea coast. You can stop by the 24-hour front desk and play in the children’s playground. There is free internet and free private parking at the hotel.
The most delicious cuisine we have tasted in Georgia. Everything is from under the knife, the freshest. The portions are huge. Home-made wine is great, you can beat any store wine. Soulful service. Beautiful view from the mountain on Gonio. I highly recommend everyone to stop in here! After this place we couldn’t find anything like it in Batumi or Tbilisi.
Not a bad hotel at all. It’s located on a hillside with a great view of Kvariati, Gonio, the beach and Batumi. There are 400 steps leading to the sea, which go through a citrus orchard and along a small stream. Good rooms, There is a good cafe on the premises with nice prices and varied menus. The food is good, the portions are not small. The only drawback is that you can hear the surf well.
Oooooh very sincere hosts, hospitable, sunny hotel with a panoramic view of the sea and mountains. There is a cafe with a terrace where you can enjoy a delicious home cooked breakfast. Descending to the sea by stairs through the citrus garden is a great exercise for the body, you will easily drop extra calories after breakfast
Spacious and clean room with panoramic sea and mountain views. The cuisine in the cafe is beyond praise. Wonderful people who work here make this place really special. A fabulous vacation on the shore of the black sea at the hotel, in the company of friends. This is what awaits you. Come! You will not regret.
Stunning view from the balcony, clean comfortable rooms, friendly hosts, good own family restaurant. Before the beach – 386 steps on a steep slope. Ideal! Want to come back.
Kvariati: tips for recreation
Until 1995, the village on the Black Sea was included in the border zone, and to enter here could only be by pass. Now Kvariati is a popular seaside resort in Georgia. I tell you whether it is comfortable to rest here, and what the prices in 2022.
Impression of the resort.
Kvariati stretches on both banks of the river of the same name 15 km south of Batumi. The village is small – a shuttle bus passes it in a couple of minutes. Modern seaside resort with hotels 3-5* is surrounded by picturesque green mountains. Some lodgings are down by the sea, and some hotels are on the mountain slope. We were in one such “upper” hotel. The views from there are amazing!
According to reviews, holidays in Kvariati are popular with diving enthusiasts. The sea here is clean enough, and the depth begins not far from the shore. There is a diving center on the shore, where you can be trained and get an international certificate PADI.
See what tourists say about rest in Kvariati:
Zagruk: “I vacationed with my family at this resort, I liked it very much. I had a great beach, beautiful views, the sea! For the price – it’s just a paradise, I advise everyone.
Denis: “Kvariati is a wonderful place. We stayed here for a couple of days but even in that time we knew we wanted to come back next year. Everything is amazing here.

What Sea and Beaches
The sea in Kvariati is cleaner than in Batumi. During the season, the pebble beach is cleaned, so there is no garbage. There are cafes and bars open for vacationers, there are small inflatable slides for children, changing rooms and showers.
Anna: “If to compare with Batumi the beach is narrower, the highway comes close to one end. From the pluses – there are almost no people in the off-season, the water is clear, quiet and clear. The beach is pebble. If you choose between Sarpi and Kvariati – I like Kvariati more”.
Svetlana: “This is probably one of the most successful beaches in the suburbs of Batumi. It’s pebbly but very well maintained. The water is cleaner there and the mountains are very close to the sea so the air is amazing and helps a lot in the heat.

Hotels in Kvariati
Hotel prices in Batumi and Kvariati in 2022 are almost the same. During the high season a double room in a guesthouse costs 800-1000 rubles per day, in a 3* hotel with a swimming pool – 2200-2800 rubles, and in a 5* hotel – 3100 rubles. We have not found any “all inclusive” offers. If you want to get around without the tiresome descents and ascents, rent accommodations below, not on the slopes of the mountain! Look for hotels in Kvariati on Hotelluk, the best according to tourist reviews:
– from 742 ₽/day – from 1978 ₽/day – from 3709 ₽/day.
Food prices in Kvariati are the same as throughout Georgia – low. For dinner for two without liquor you will pay 20-25 GEL. We liked the cozy atmosphere and delicious food at Frida Beach Cafe boho beach cafe. The portions in Georgia are big, don’t rush to order a lot!
JuliBook: “The cost of dishes is even democratic: kubdari (with meat) – 10 GEL, lula kebab – 11 GEL, chihirtma – 8 GEL, khachapuri Adjara – 7 GEL, a glass of Georgian wine – 5 GEL”.
What to see and do
In Kvariati itself there are no sights and entertainment, so tourists willingly go on excursions to interesting places in Georgia. According to reviews, popular day tours to Makhuntseti waterfall, the national park “Mtirala” and the mountainous Adjara. Prices for them start at $30.
You should not take all tours in a row! There are shuttles and buses to Batumi, so you can easily get to the resort town and Batumi Botanical Garden on your own. In the neighboring village of Gonio we advise to look at the Roman fortress. It costs 10 lari to enter it. Walk to the waterfall of St. Andrew! From the southern border of the village to the picturesque site is just over 1 km.
Viktor and Alina Pashinskie: “The waterfall of St. Andrew, in our opinion, quite beautiful, but still very inferior to the waterfall of Makhuntseti, which we visited next. The statues in honor of the saint, made in an unusual style, seemed interesting.”

Rest with children
According to reviews from tourists, families with children like holidays in Kvariati. Especially good at the seaside with the little ones. Everything is at hand! It is easy to walk from the hotel to the beach. In the village there are stores, fruit and vegetable shops, near the sea sell resort goods – swimwear, inflatables and children’s toys. However, for entertainment, such as a water park, attractions and museums, one has to go to Batumi.
Anastasia: “We stayed in the apart-hotel “Sunset Kvariati”. The apartment is awesome and there were four of us (my husband and kids). The room had air conditioning, comfortable beds, and cleanliness. We liked it very much, we recommend it to everyone.
For entertainment we will have to go to Batumi. Park on May 6. Photo by the author.
When it’s better to go
Kvariati is a village for beach holidays, so most of the year its hotels are empty. Bathing season begins in late May – early June, and the sea remains warm until late October. Because of the subtropical climate all Georgian resorts have high humidity, in July and August it is quite hot. If you can not stand the summer heat, come to the resort in June or in the first half of autumn.
Is it worth to go
Rest in Kvariati in 2022 has many advantages. Compared to Batumi, the sea here is cleaner, and there isn’t a large flow of tourists. It’s only 20 minutes by shuttle or bus to Batumi’s entertainment. The hotels, which are located on the slopes of the mountain, offer wonderful views of the coast. Admire the sunset right from your room!
The main disadvantage of Kvariati is that it’s a small village. You have to take public transportation or a cab to get to all attractions.
