The constant development and expansion of Gudauri's infrastructure has led to significant growth in tourism in this region. Ten years ago, there were only 13 small hotels in the resort. Today, Gudauri has more than 50 hotels, private apartments, a growing number of restaurants and cafés, spa centres, medical centres, pharmacies, ski schools etc. Sports and musical events are regularly organised there.
Most of the tourists associate Gudauri with ski holidays. However, the development of tourism infrastructure has expanded the resort's function, and Gudauri is steadily transforming itself into a year-round mountain tourist destination.
Thanks to its sunny climate and safe slopes with minimal avalanche risk, Gudauri is considered an ideal place for many types of winter sports. 10 ski lifts provide access to modern ski slopes with a total length of 70 km. The ski season in Gudauri extends from December to April. However, in the not-too-distant future it will be possible to extend the season until the end of June - plans are underway to build new cable cars and produce artificial snow.
The growing popularity of Gudauri as a ski resort allows it to be more and more popular in summer. The development of tourism infrastructure in Gudauri now allows visitors to plan a summer holiday in this beautiful mountain region, with hiking, alpinism, fishing, rafting, off-road excursions, horse riding, and climbing the famous Mount Kazbek during the hot summer days until autumn.
One of the most attractive features of this type of residential complex is that effective management allows owners to obtain a return on investment of 18 to 20% through the rental of their apartments. The profitability of apart hotels in these tourist areas is undisputed. In New Gudauri (which is under development and not yet using its full potential) the average price for renting a one-room apartment during the winter season is $120 to $140 per day. With an average occupancy rate over the 4 months between December and March of 60 to 70%, the prospect of an increase in summer occupancy from 2019 is now to be taken into account. Thus, during the summer of 2017, the resort's figures recorded an occupancy rate of 25% in the Gudauri apart hotels, with an average price of 55-60 dollars per day. Statistics show that occupancy rates between May and August are expected to be between 30 and 40% by 2019-2020.
The developer of each complex is responsible for the maintenance and care of the infrastructure. It operates at a fixed rate. By purchasing an apartment in one of the proposed complexes, as an owner, you are required to pay a fixed fee for these maintenance services, the amount of which is calculated according to the surface area of the apartment. On average, the cost is $700 per year for a 30m2 studio. In addition to electricity costs, this maintenance includes the maintenance and cleaning of the buildings, heating, hot water, Internet, telecommunications system, television, doorman and security guards. The electricity bill will be calculated based on individual meter readings (average $10 per month).
