first wave of cancellation of reservations in Batumi hotels started in March,
and after the borders were closed and a pandemic was announced, the
cancellations became massive.
As of today, 42.9% of hotels in Batumi have canceled all reservations until July, 28.6% do not expect guests until August. 26.8% of hotels in Georgia’s main sea resort do not have a single reservation.
Cushman & Wakefield Georgia predicts that the year 2020 will be very difficult for the Georgian hotel sector and both small hotels and large brand chains will not be able to handle the crisis.
All this will leave a large number of people employed in the hotel sector without work in 2020.
