Tufenkian Avan Dzoraget

The Avan Dzoraget Hotel is a countryside getaway only a 4-hour drive from Yerevan, which invites guests to relax and explore the beautiful landscape. The property sits along the Debed River, nestled among the forest-covered hills and rocky slope of Caucasus Mountains. Its basalt stone exterior and architecture is evocative of medieval Armenian castles and redolent of history and tradition. Rooms and suites are spread among the main building and a new annex. All guests can enjoy views of the river from their stylish rooms dressed with handcrafted furniture and modern amenities. On property, guests can unwind poolside, enjoy meals and drinks on the riverside terrace, and enjoy massage treatments and the sauna at the spa. Those looking for adventure can enjoy fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and river rafting within the scenic canyon area. The historic Sanahin and Haghpat monasteries are within a short 15-minute drive away.

Why We Love This Hotel

Character: Armenian heritage can found in little touches throughout the property, from sculptures in the courtyard that feature Armenian folktale imagery, to pre-medieval Armenian script decorating the walls, quaint arched doorways, handcrafted furniture made from local iron and basalt, and hand-woven Armenian carpets and woolen blankets.

Countryside Hideaway: A charming Armenian castle perched by the river, the Tufenkian Avan Dzoraget is a tranquil countryside retreat where guests can escape from the city to relax and spend time in the picturesque forested hills of the Caucasus Mountains.

Location: Just a four-hour drive from Yerevan, the scenic Debed gorge area offers a slew of outdoor activities from hiking and biking to horseback riding and white water rafting. The historic Haghpat Monastery Complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just a 15-minute drive away.
