IHG Hotels & Resorts has opened its first hotel in Azerbaijan with the recent opening of the InterContinental Baku.
The 128-room property overlooks the scenic Baku Bay, allowing guests to experience the InterContinental Life in modern surroundings while enjoying views of the Caspian Sea, harbour and Baku’s iconic Flame Towers.
General Manager Pawel Czerwienka said: “As an international luxury hotel brand, with 75 years of travel across the globe, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has become a symbol of sophistication and worldliness.
“The brand is renowned for weaving modern luxury design and we can’t wait for guests to experience the InterContinental Baku,” he added.
The new hotel features seven floors of guest rooms, an all-day dining restaurant featuring local and Mediterranean cuisine and a SPA with indoor pool and hammam. The mezzanine floor features the hotel’s Club InterContinental – named Iksander-nameh after Nizami’s ode to Alexsander the Great – with spectacular views of the Baku Gulf and Caspian Sea and offers private check-in and meeting and dining spaces.
Located in the centre of Baku, the hotel is adjacent to both the Sahil metro station and the 25km-long Seaside Boulevard, which connects the unique architectural styles of the urban districts with Icheri Sheher – the Old City – a UNESCO World Heritage site developed from the 6th to the 21st century. Baku Airport is only 25km away.
