InterContinental opens new hotel in Azerbaijan capital

BAKU, Azerbaijan, August 2, 2021

IHG Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has debuted its InterContinental Hotels & Resorts in Azerbaijan with the recent opening of 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. 
 
The city of Baku is a melting point of architecture inspired by the city’s rich history and seamlessly combines the ancient and modern. 
 
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.  
 
Baku is known for its 'oil-boom architecture', originating from a period of significant economic growth and development in the 19th century. The hotel’s façade is inspired by this style, and the rest of the hotel’s design is inspired by the region’s landscape, history, and culture. 
 
Medieval poet and scientist Nizami Ganjavi, who was born in Azerbaijan in 12th century, is considered the greatest romantic poet in Persian literature. His collection of poems, Khamsa, have been reflected in the hotel’s interior design and inspired the names of different hotel facilities.
 
The 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.-TradeArabia News Service
