To go to Mestia from Tbilisi, it takes 8-10 hours. It depends also on the drivers. The road is good. You should pass Samegrelo to get to Mestia.
Yes, it is a major detour, as it will be really tiresome to go straight to Vardzia, but you don't have to drive till Tbilisi, you should first go to Borjomi on the way back and from there to Vardzia. From Borjomi to Vardzia it's gonna take one and a half hour.
