Relax... in a paradise of nature, with butterflies in an orchard cradled by a mountain river
Relish... an amazing Armenian culture of unique wines and food, handicrafts and festivals
Reflect... on the history of the oldest winery, the first Christian nation and the Silk Road

     

 


We're building our dream lodge in an orchard surrounded by water and nature that will ensure guest privacy, security and well-being. Apart from employment, we're also supporting local villagers and Armenia with our Adopt-a-Village charity programme and the Origins Project.

Unfortunately, due to a combination of bureaucracy at both central and local government levels, and a builder whom we had to terminate, we are forced to delay our expected opening until at least Spring 2023. Please follow our , and feeds for the latest news

Areni Lodge Complex Plan

Areni Lodge has been designed to be environmentally-friendly, with features such as:

  • our own carbon credit scheme that beautifies the environment, helps to stop erosion of a semi-arid landscape and supports local jobs by planting fruting trees;

  • solar water heaters and photovoltaic panels;

  • geothermal temperature control and thermal building insulation;

  • bio-sewage and other eco-waste management systems;

  • research and development for a new type of vertical axis wind turbine; and

  • rain water and mountain spring water use (filtered without power and shared with the community).

We offer services such as tours, and local tourist information about special places, including the adjacent Areni Open Air Cultural Museum.

    
   

  
Areni is about 110 kilometres from the capital Yerevan or Zvartnots International Airport, which takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes by road. We can arrange guest transfers on request, or you can fly directly by helicopter when our helipad is available.
