The 2020 winter season in the country’s mountain resorts opened a month ago and will last until April 15. The average hotel occupancy rate in the resorts is around 50 percent, as they say at Marco Polo hotel, the resort is visited by an unusually large number of tourists from Israel thanks to the successful process of vaccination in this country.
"The expectations we had in March have more or less justified. There were small numbers of tourists from the Persian Gulf countries and Ukraine. April is expected to be active in this regard due to snowy weather in Gudauri. Then we have nothing to hope for.
In the pre-pandemic period the hotels were fully booked for whole summer, now we have only a few bookings. European tourists, as a rule, don’t come to the mountain resorts in the summer, ”Gvantsa Mirzashvili, a representative of the Marco Polo Hotel, notes.
