four seasons bakuHere's what should be next on your luxury radar: Baku, Azerbaijan.

We hear that this once well-kept secret is now exploding with high-end options for VIP travelers. Most notably, is the opening of the Four Seasons Hotel Baku. Located on the promenade by the Caspian Sea, the hotel offers 171 rooms and suites, four restaurants and bars including the Kaspia and Kaspia Bar, the Jaleh Spa and Pool and more.

Top touch: We hear that the Jaleh Spa and Pool offers an indoor pool within a two-story atrium topped by a glass roof.

Those gearing up for a trip to Baku may want to do so this fall for the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup. The tournament will also feature concerts by Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Rihanna.

Travelers will also love the opening of the Azerbaijan Carpet Museum, which will open on the waterfront by the end of the year. Cool touch: The museum is shaped like a giant rolled carpet.

Baku's Old City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers architecture (think Maiden Tower and Shirvansha's Palace), along with the Gobustan National Park and the 14th century Mardakan Quandrangular Castle.
