About Us

Silk Hospitality is the tourism and recreation arm of Silk Road Group. We manage a variety of assets, ranging from upper-upscale hotels to local restaurants, casinos, and other leisure facilities. Each one offers bespoke accommodation and entertainment for guests, as well as significant long-term value for our investors.

Our hotels, casinos, and hospitality venues can be currently found at three key tourist destinations Tbilisi, Batumi, and Tsinandali and are operated by over 2,000 staff who are managed and supported by our central office in Tbilisi. 

Silk Hospitality functions both as an owner and as owner-operator of all its venues, and we partner with the best organizations in the hospitality industry to bring our guests a truly world-class experience.

Our long term goal is to establish and develop lasting partnerships with institutional investors, property owners, and private equity funds and expand our portfolio. Our team consists of seasoned hospitality, marketing, financial, human resources, and technical professionals. We offer full management services to existing or future hospitality venues in which guest satisfaction and customer service is our top priority. It is our firm belief that our depth of experience and highly focused work ethic will translate directly into shareholder return on investment.

With tourism booming in Georgia, Silk Hospitality is well-placed to continue to deliver growth within the hotel and restaurant sector, supporting the Georgian economy through job opportunities and tourism revenue, as well as becoming a regional leader in our industry.
