Autograph Collection Hotels, a distinctive collection of independent and unique hotels under the Marriott International umbrella, is known worldwide for its impressive portfolio of rarefied properties and its ethos of inimitable vision, design and craft. The brand’s latest destination, Paragraph Resort & Spa Shekvetili, is unlike any other. Sitting on the Black Sea shore of the Guria region of Georgia, among magnetic sand beaches and lush pine forests, the recently-opened five-star accommodation has an enviable location. Guests can just as easily enjoy the serenity of the area’s natural environment, or take a short drive into town to play at Amusement Park Firefly, or see a show at the Black Sea Arena, the largest open-air concert hall in Caucasus. The resort’s architectural design is by far the resort’s most outstanding feature, and the expanding public spaces within the property are intensely enveloping. The lobby puts marine life on center stage with a walkthrough aquarium brimming with exotic marine life. From here, guests can drift to the enchanting winter garden, complete with an indoor water fall, the indoor aqua park, or to the 375-ft filtered seawater pool built into a panoramic deck peering out to the Black Sea.
Another exceptional feature of the resort is its faultless service. Georgian hospitality is legendary, and true to form, the resort’s staff members are discreet, attentive, and never intrusive.
The resort offers 220 rooms and suites, all of which feature exquisitely furnished interiors, private balconies, and Roberto Cavalli toiletries in the bathrooms. There are plenty of vista points throughout the property, but the most magnificent views can be captured at Sky Bar, located on the top floor of the hotel, which offers breathtaking 360° views of the coast and surrounding mountains.
