Together with tour operators, we have compiled the TOP 20 hotels in Abkhazia with heated pools and SPA complexes, which are perfect for holidays in the off-season. Take note.

Abkhazia has become one of the most sought-after destinations for the New Year holidays in 2024. A mild winter, a varied excursion program and affordable prices for accommodation and other services have become an occasion for many tourists to spend their winter holidays in this region.
