A remarkable new project is underway in Tbilisi Georgia. Led by business executive John Dodelande, the Fujin real estate development company is constructing a brand new hotel at the Tbilisi Airport. The 39,000-square-meter complex is called Ibis Tbilisi International and is being built to capitalize on an anticipated increase in traveler volume.
Once the first phase of development is completed, the hotel will consist of 120 rooms as well as amenities like a Gulf gas station, a convenience store, restaurants, a business center, and rental car facilities. This phase is planned to be finalized by 2022 when the Ibis will open its doors as the first and only internationally-branded hotel at the airport. The ultimate vision of the project is to create a strategically located travel hub along the Silk Road.
