Luxe skyscraper resort in Baku's iconic flame towers, with a rooftop pool, tennis courts and eight restaurants
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.
