Why Gudauri?

The young resort of Gudauri is actively developing, gaining the status of one of the best ski villages in Georgia. The dense snow cover here lasts until April, the slopes of the Greater Caucasus Range offer trails of varying steepness, and the weather conditions remain comfortable throughout the season. Hotels in Gudaura are new, the infrastructure is well-established, and the level of service is at a high level at reasonable prices. The resort is convenient for skiing with children, but you will have to put up with a minimum level of baby service – the game room service is not yet provided.

The infrastructure is under construction, but there are enough restaurants and cafes to have a delicious meal. Establishments are concentrated between the first and second stages, there is a food zone in New Gudaur. Among the restaurants with good panoramas, two deserve attention: “Vitamin” and “Mega Bar”.

There are accommodation facilities in each zone – in the Lower Gudaur there is the largest choice, in the Upper zone there are inexpensive hostels and hotels.

In general, the resort is suitable for a relaxing holiday: for couples who teach a child to ride, or for older people who prefer a vacation at a measured pace.
