I would highly recommend this is as a place to stay in Upper Omalo. Natia could not have been more friendly, helpful and flexible. The standard of accommodation was very high, the food was excellent, and we thought it was great value for money.
The guest house comprises a building with accommodation and a large lounge centred around a fire, and a separate block with a dining room. Much of the accommodation shares a balcony with fantastic views of the Omalo fortress. Our room was spacious and had a very pleasant, clean bathroom.
Natia gave us three meals a day and they were all excellent. She also gave a good deal of variety in what she served over the time we were there. And she was able to give us a critical 7 litres of petrol for our thirsty 4x4 car.
Like most if not all guesthouses in the area, the electricity and hot water are supplied by solar energy. This means you can only have a hot shower in late afternoon/evening, and there may not always be electricity. This is fine and seems to be well managed. For information, there is no wifi at the guesthouse and the only mobile provider we could get was Geocell, which meant our Beeline internet sim card was no use.
I have two pieces of advice for people considering staying here. The first is that you should be aware that the guesthouse is in Upper (Zemo) Omalo, and neither the lower part of Omalo or Zemo Omalo are well signed. We were driving up there and we wasted the best part of an hour trying to find out exactly where we needed to go. I would suggest asking Natia to explain exactly how to get there from lower Omalo to Zemo Omalo to save frustration. Once you get into Zemo Omalo, it could not be easier to find the guesthouse - it is literally the first house in the village, on the right.
The second is that there is no petrol station anywhere in Tusheti. So you must leave Pshaveli with as close to a full tank as you can possibly get.
My only suggestions to Natia for improvement to the guesthouse would be to provide reading lights by the beds in the rooms, and maybe one reading lamp in the lounge. The ceiling lights are efficient but it's not easy to read by them. Since when it rains there's not that much else to do, the quality of reading was important to me!
