The Ritz-Carlton Opens its First Hotel in Astana, Kazahkstan

The Ritz-Carlton has opened the doors of its first hotel in the capital of Kazakhstan. Located in the Talan Towers, The Ritz-Carlton, Astana joins an elite business center and luxury shopping gallery to create the city’s first high-end, mixed-use complex. With a unique yet graceful design, The Ritz-Carlton, Astana is also a natural extension of the square around the nearby Bayterek Tower, a monument and symbol of modern Astana.

The Ritz-Carlton, Astana has 157 guest rooms, including 32 suites, and 27 residences, all of which offer panoramic city views. A Club Lounge on the 14th floor provides guests with private check-in, dedicated Club Concierge, and culinary presentations throughout the day.

There will also be three restaurants. Adjacent to the main entrance, Өzen offers a selection of organic produce, while Mökki, an all-day dining restaurant, serves comfort foods. The selection is completed with Selfie Astana, the newest creation of the Russian-based restaurant group White Rabbit Family, which will be located on the 18th floor.
