The Natural Extension of You
Tufenkian Heritage Hotels in Armenia are a network of luxurious boutique hotels, traditional restaurants and tourism facilities that provide visitors the experience of a revived Armenia. With several new hotels in development, the Heritage Hotels currently consist of Tufenkian Historic Yerevan Hotel, Avan Dzoraget Hotel, Avan Marak Tsapatagh Hotel and Old Dilijan Complex.
City center hotel
The newest member of Tufenkian Heritage Hotels, Tufenkian Historic Yerevan Hotel, opened its doors in September 2012 in the heart of downtown Yervevan, one of the oldest cities in the world. The new Tufenkian city center hotel is located on the crossroads of Hanrapetutyan and Buzand streets, facing the famous Vernisage, Yerevan’s outdoor craft and souvenir market.
Tufenkian Historic Yerevan Hotel offers 83 rooms, a bar/lounge, conference center and features a traditional Kharpert Restaurant, which offers age-old Western and Eastern Armenian cuisine. The warm and inviting atmosphere of the Kharpert restaurant is the perfect way to relax after a long day.
The exterior of Tufenkian Historic Yerevan Hotel reflects the Yerevan architecture of 19th-20th century. The idea was to create a new building inspired by both classic European and 20th century Armenian design and architecture.
The design of the Tufenkian Historic Yerevan Hotel was a collaboration effort between renowned designers including the world famous architecture and interior designer Clodagh, James Tufenkian and top Armenian architects.
The interior of this new hotel in Yerevan displays superbly detailed features, luxurious furnishings and rich stone accents, reflecting the brilliantly applied traditional Armenian theme. The Tufenkian Historic Yerevan Hotel provides an exceptional level of comfort and warm heartfelt service.
Address: 48 Hanrapetutyan str. /near Vernissaj/
A medieval castle by the river
Situated 160 km north from Yerevan, the Avan Dzoraget hotel is located midway between the capitals of Armenia and Georgia. Although it was built in 2004 (main building), Tufenkian's Avan Dzoraget hotel is designed to evoke the historical romance and excitement associated with medieval Armenian castles. The exterior is made of basalt stone and Armenian culture permeates through the hotel; from the courtyard's sculpture of Taurus whose legs and sides are adorned with images from Armenian folktales to the pre-medieval Armenian script decorating the walls around the lobby to the arched doorways throughout the property.
Avan Dzoraget Hotel sits along the Debed River, nestled among the forest-covered hills and rocky slope of Caucasus Mountains. When not exploring the landscape, touring monasteries and monuments in the area, fishing or visiting the nearby villages, guests at Avan Dzoraget enjoy the views and serenity of the Debed River, as well as the hospitality and comfort Armenia is known for.
Avan Dzoraget Restaurant features a bar and lounge area and guests have the option to dine in the opulent atmosphere of the restaurant or on the open terrace overlooking the Debed River. Exceptional Armenian and Georgian cuisine served at the restaurantmakes for a truly authentic and inventive dining experience.
The most tranquil, calm and relaxing...
The Avan Marak Tsapatagh Hotel is located in the rural setting of Tsapatagh, a small farming and fishing village on the eastern shore of Lake Sevan; 126 km north-east of Yerevan. The Hotel has 34 rooms including spacious and luxurious duplexes and suites.
Tsapatagh Village's warm climate makes it a perfect recreational site where visitors can relax on the shores of the world's largest high-elevation lakes. Avan Marak Tsapatagh Hotel offers a range of on-site recreational facilities, including billiards, an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, sauna and table tennis. The hotel is the perfect place for rest and relaxation, with an inviting lounge where guests can enjoy a variety of leisurely pursuits in a relaxing sitting area, lounge poolside at the hotel's outdoor recreation area, or spend the evening under the brightest stars in Armenia.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing destination, Avan Marak Tsapatagh Hotel is the perfect choice.
The hotel is seasonal and operates from May 1st - October 20th.
The true Dilijan experience...
In the 1800s, the age-old Armenian city of Dilijan was known as a blossoming center of culture, commerce and cuisine. In order to enjoy the region's picturesque landscape, wealthy vacationers from Tbilisi, Baku and beyond, flocked to Dilijan in increasing numbers, paving way for the town’s international culture. In 2004, Tufenkian began restoring the historical district (Sharambeyan Street) of modern-day Dilijan, preserving the 19th century architecture which you can experience today. The intricately carved balconies typical of 19th century Dilijan display the region’s historical love for fine woodwork. Old Dilijan's Esayan museum recreates a typical 19th century Dilijan home, from household textiles to hand crafted musical instruments common to the region.
Tufenkian's Ananov Guest House gives you a chance to enjoy Dilijan in native luxury. The high vaulted ceilings, understated handmade chandeliers and intricately detailed handmade carpets of the Old Dilijan's Haykanoush Restaurant recall a typical Dilijani dining room.
On the streets of Old Dilijan, visitors are immersed in the finest culture of an earlier time. Specialized workshops and studios sell jewelry, clothing, carpets, ceramics and woodcarvings, arts and crafts all revived with Tufenkian’s renovation of the historical district.
Old Dilijan Complex also offers a separate picnic area, which you can rent and enjoy a day outdoors with your friends and family. The area has barbeque facilities with plates and cups provided by the complex.
