With healing water baths, the Abastumani Resort is quite popular. The healing thermal water bath and sanatorium Meskheti were built for Prince Giorgi Alexander Romanov by the end of the 19th century and have been functioning until 1994.
Abastumani has a moderately dry mountainous climate, with relative humidity reaching 50% only in summer. Abastumani’s three hyperthermic springs (39–48.5 °C) are little mineralized, rich in sulfate-sodium chloride waters. They have long been used in the treatment of tuberculosis. Abastumani is also a starting point for hikes into the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park.
