Four Seasons Baku


Azerbaijan is a country with a great culture, and since time immemorial it was an important center on the Great Silk Road, which connected the east and west.

With countless architectural and historical icons, Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, is a cosmopolitan city by the sea. Like nearby Istanbul, it is a city of great contrast - a mix between Asia and Europe and has been home to many empires during its rich history. The country has been part of many empires, from Alexander the Great to the Ottoman, Persian or Russian Empire. It is due to this melting pot of East and West that it is such a fascinating destination with a rich and constantly changing culture.

In parts of Azerbaijan, even on the outskirts of the capital city of Baku, the land is dotted with oil and gas reserves. Volcanoes have formed on some of the reserves - but instead of throwing lava, volcanoes explode with a mixture of water, sand, gas and sometimes oil.

Baku is the largest city in the Caucasus and is the political, scientific and cultural center of Azerbaijan. The city is modern, chaotic and multicultural, with an architecture that encompasses multiple generations and styles that complement in an interesting way. For example, the futuristic Flame Towers are located just behind the city walls that are centuries old.

Located in the heart of the capital of Azerbaijan, overlooking the Caspian Sea, the Four Seasons Hotel Baku offers the opportunity to explore the Old City and the new city. The Beaux Arts-style hotel, located in front of the sea, is located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe.

The Four Seasons Baku opened its doors at the end of 2012. It refers to the French style of Fine Arts of the late 19th century, and is inspired by the iconic Four Seasons George V in Paris. It is located in a lush building of classic proportions designed from the inside out to control that the operational operation of the hotel and the guest experience match its visual promise.

Like an ancient pool, the Four Seasons pool is located in a two-story stone-clad atrium topped by a domed glass roof. It is a serene and secret hiding place to swim under the sun and the stars. Its beautiful Jaleh SPA is located on the top of the building, with incredible views towards the Caspian Sea from the jacuzzi and an impressive hamam.

A classic and modern design makes the Four Seasons a luxury sanctuary that combines one of the most prestigious names in the world of hospitality with the unique culture of one of the most exotic places in the world. This building of lush proportions stands at the foot of the majestic Caspian Sea, embodying the soul of Baku: a sophisticated and contrasting kaleidoscope that is ancient, modern and daring at the same time. Baku center that runs parallel to the Caspian Sea.
