Fairmont Arrives in Baku, Azerbaijan

Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers Complex, Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan’s capital city of Baku is buzzing with new luxury hotel openings: Four Seasons, JW Marriott, and soon Fairmont, slated to open in early 2013. The Fairmont Baku is now putting the finishing touches on its 299 guest rooms.

Located in the new Baku Flame Towers Complex- an architectural landmark on the Caspian Sea, the hotel promises to be a looker. The halls are decked with a museum-worthy contemporary art collection, while the seven-storey lobby contains a massive, two-ton chandelier comprised of over three miles of light- and crystal-decked strands.

Facilities include several restaurant options (like a French patisserie and a steakhouse); 27,000 square feet of function space; and a health club and spa by ESPA. While on business in oil-rich Baku, you can count on Fairmont's luxury transportation throughout the business district. For more information, visit www.fairmont.com/baku.
