The hotel should also feature a conference hall, restaurant and parking for 40 cars.
Iveria is not the only sanatorium that will be transformed into a hotel. Last year the Government of Georgia sold the Meshakhte sanatorium, which is being turned into a new five-star hotel.
Tskaltubo was a famous health spa area with its thermal waters which were used to treat diseases like asthma, angina pectoris, hypertensive diseases, pneumonia neurosis and more.
