Best Luxury Hotels in Baku 2021


It was the glitzy abode of Eurovision in 2012, but the coastal colony of Raku is also the capital of Azerbaijan. It is thriving in modern times, thanks to a lucrative oil and gas industry. Although the ancient roots are still clearly visible here, the brilliant skyscrapers are rising at a certain speed, as the city is undergoing a rapid pace of transformation. The walled city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – three of its towers are said to have been used as fire temples in the 5th and 6th centuries. Visitors come not only for the glamor and heritage, but also for Baku’s wonderfully temperate (and in summer, downright hot) climate.

Four Seasons Baku

If you’d rather stick to the well-known chains when traveling a little further off the beaten path, the Four Seasons is a reliable luxury choice. And this one is particularly popular with couples. Overlooking the Caspian Sea, the magnificent building was built in a fine art style. Italian meals are served in the Zafferano’s dining room or on the open-air terrace, along with a place for light snacks and a club-style lounge bar. Swim in natural sunlight in the indoor pool, located in a Roman-style atrium clad in stone and featuring a vaulted glass ceiling. Next door, in the spa, you will find a hammam and a VIP suite for couples’ treatments.

When it comes to dining, the hotel offers three options: all-day dining at ZEST Lifestyle Café, breakfasts and barbecues at Fireworks Restaurant, and the more formal Oro Nero for Italian fare. The central station, shopping, entertainment and business districts are within walking distance, making it a very convenient location for all types of travelers.

Fairmont Baku

Known as the Flame Towers, the curved, pointed skyscrapers of this iconic building serve as a landmark on Baku’s skyline.

Bilgah Beach Hotel

With its own private beach and outdoor pools, the Bilgah allows visitors to combine a city and resort stay. Accommodation comes in the form of 176 rooms and suites with sea or garden views and 14 independent villas. Higher grades include 24-hour butler service. Nine restaurants and bars, an on-site water park, a large spa with an indoor pool, a meditation room, a Turkish bath, a gym, a tennis clinic, a bowling alley, meeting rooms, a nightclub and a large ballroom give the impression of being more of a small village than a hotel in the capital. Pet and child friendly (babysitting services can be booked), it’s also a hit with couples looking for a romantic getaway.
