Attention to detail reigns at this 318-room resort, which opened in Azerbaijan’s famous flame-shaped towers in 2013. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramic views of the Caspian Sea and the surrounding city from the guestrooms, which are all outfitted with Posturpedic pillowtop mattresses, fully stocked minibars and Nespresso machines. The bathrooms are spa-like, with deep soaking tubs, huge showers, marble flooring, terrycloth bathrobes and Le Labo Rose 31 bath products. Eight dining options mean you’ll never get bored. You can savor garlicky escargot at Le Bistro; feast on wagyu beef tenderloin and bacon-wrapped prawns at the Alov steakhouse (helmed by Orkan Mukhtarov, gold award winner at the International Gastronomy Festival of Turkey, Ukraine and Serbia); and finish the night with a Cuban and a digestif at Cigar Divan, a lounge overlooking the Caspian Sea. The two-story spa offers ESPA treatments and a rooftop pool. Active types can work out at the gym or practice their serve on the tennis courts.
In the Area
Baku’s enviable location on the Absheron Peninsula (flanked by mountains to the west and the Caspian Sea to the north, south and east) provides plenty of distractions for city folk as well as nature lovers. Wander the 2.3-mile Baku Boulevard, a century-old promenade on the waterfront, and don’t miss a visit to a local chaikhan; the teahouses serve a dizzying array of teas blended with various herbs and flavorings. History buffs will appreciate Baku’s old walled city (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site) for its diverse background: People have inhabited the site since the paleolithic period. Baku’s famous Maiden Tower dates from the 6th or 7th century, and the original walls surrounding the town were constructed in the 12th century. To escape the city, head about 40 miles south to Gobustan National Park, a mountainous area that features petroglyphs. Or marvel at Yanar Dag (Fire Mountain), where natural gas flares leap 10 feet in the air.
How to Get There
The well known, famous Flame Towers get their real highlight by the Fairmont Flame Tower Hotel; most modern, with excellent suites located to the sea and city of Baku with fantastic views and a wonderful Golden Lounge in the 19th floor. The service is extraordinarily brilliant and well done. I had the opportunity to speak to Mr. Ingilab, a very well educated serviceman, in the nice Bistro-Restaurant, who fluently speaks an excellent German and was - together with his chef - very helpful with touristic advices.
Great restaurant, great service. All food is great. I ordered choban salad, lentil soup and kebab platter All of them is quite delicious. All servers (Arshad, Elmir, Mahdi) are professional especially I want to say big thanks to Elmir.

Elegant hotel. The staff was nice enough to give me a room in the upper floor. The rooms are elegant and very nice views of the City. Nevertheless for the price charged, I don't see real value added.. breakfast paid separately and rooms size are standard. Outdoor pool from the photographs is closed.
