Immerse in the romance of old-world Armenia at Tufenkian Avan Dzoraget Hotel, a converted medieval castle nestled between the Debed River and forest-clad hills of the Caucasus Mountains.

Serene river and forest-covered mountains provide a picturesque backdrop to this property, beautifully straddled between the capitals of Armenia and Georgia, making Avan Dzoraget an excellent stopover for overland journey.

Built over the façade of a medieval castle, the Tufenkian Avan Dzoraget Hotel exudes a traditional Armenian feel from all corners, from the courtyard sculpture adorned with images from Armenian folktales to walls ornamented with pre-medieval Armenian scripts. An equally opulent style permeates each of 54 spacious rooms and suites, all draped with King Sealy Crown jewel mattresses, wool duvets, walnut cupboards, basalt and wood floors and hand-woven Tufenkian carpets.

The Avan Dzoraget Restaurant has a bar and lounge area with open terrace overlooking the Debed River. Both Armenian and Georgian cuisine are served to satisfy your palates for authentic dishes. After exploring the nearby UNESCO sites of Haghpat and Sanahin monasteries, pamper yourself with welcoming facilities such as indoor swimming pool, spa, massage, fitness centre and billiards.
