About Us

Ruebush Hospitality Group is a full-service hotel development and management company based in Batumi, Georgia. We are passionate about quality and service.

Our story began in 2012, with our founder David Ruebush jumping on the trend of investing in residential "Airbnb's" and aparthotels. It was a profitable business model for a while, but as the supply in the market grew dramatically, and the returns on residential investments dwindled, we ventured into a strong niche market that provides better profits.

We soon discovered that while residential real estate can be a risky investment, commercial properties – boutique hotels especially – offer higher returns at a much lower risk. The obstacle for most investors, up until now, was that they couldn’t afford to buy a hotel. But we’re here to change the game.
