Meetings at Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers, Azerbaijan
5th December 2013 – In the heart of the city of Baku, Azerbaijan – the land of fire – lies one of the most innovative and audacious buildings of modern times – the Flame Towers Complex. Resembling the shape of a flame, its northernmost tower is home to Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers – a 318 room property with enviable views over the ancient city of Baku and the breathtaking sweep of the Caspian Sea.
Located close to the Government Buildings, overlooking the hustle and bustle of the city centre and harbour, Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers offers a quiet oasis to conduct prestigious meetings of any size with over 2,500 square metres (26,900 square feet) of multi-functional space.
Doing business at Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers: There are eleven meeting rooms available in total, split over two levels, offering any number of options from a private boardroom meeting for just 14 delegates to a glittering cocktail reception in the Grand Ballroom for up to 950 guests. The eleven meeting rooms are broken down into: two board rooms, seven meeting rooms as well as a Junior and Grand Ballroom.
Attendees may access the Conference Centre via its own dedicated entrance, leading directly to the Grand Ballroom or by the impressive seven story lobby with its incredible crystal glass chandelier.
All rooms have access to the 24 hour Business Centre, a number of pre-function areas and cutting edge audio visual technology including built in projectors, screens and Wi-Fi. Each function space is decorated in neutral tones to create a calm and tranquil working environment for each guest. Every room follows the theme of the Flame Towers complex with light features mimicking flames and patterned carpets representing the movement of water. To complement the space, custom made pieces of contemporary art offer a stunning contrast to the restrained décor. Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers also offers sustainable meetings for planners who want to leave as small a carbon footprint as possible.
Relaxing at Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers: When the working day is done, any individual needs to switch off and wind down. At the hotel, there are currently two dining options available – the elegant French-influenced Le Bistro and the curved Nur Lounge with its bar and terrace – with five more to open this winter including a live jazz venue, a steakhouse and a Cigar Divan. Even special diets are easily catered for with Fairmont’s Lifestyle Cuisine.
The newly opened spa facility – ESPA at Fairmont Baku – offers ample opportunity to work off stress or excess pounds, with personal trainers to keep fitness programmes on track, available on demand. ESPA at Fairmont Baku is located over two floors and offers 3,500 square metres (37,674 square feet) of both active and passive space with a fully equipped gym, a black marble Hamman, a glittering indoor pool and vitality pools, nine treatment rooms and the stunning Sky Lounge where every guest can relax in style with that 360 degree view over the city. For travellers that like to stay active but travel light, Fairmont Fit is available, a brand programme via Fairmont’s Presidents Club. Guests may order shorts, T-shirts and athletic shoes, all delivered to the guestroom for use during their stay.
What to do, what to see in Baku: The city of Baku is similar in feel to Paris with broad boulevards and shopping malls featuring many, easily recognisable, major luxury and high street brands. The city wraps itself around the curve of the Caspian Sea, the largest inland sea in the world and there is a broad mix of architecture on show – from the ancient, first millennium Inner City to the startlingly modernist Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center designed by Zaha Hadid to the belle époque mansions of the old oil barons and the more mundane accommodation blocks dating back to the Soviet era.
