Ritz-Carlton debuts in Kazakhstan capital

by Florence Head | 20 Jul 2017

Luxury hotel operator The Ritz-Carlton has opened a location in Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan.

Owned by Verny Capital Group, the 157-bedroom Ritz-Carlton Astana is located within the Talan Towers, designed by US architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill as a natural extension of the square around the nearby Bayterek Tower – a monument and symbol of modern Astana.

A wide range of wellness facilities, including a spa and 320sq m (3,444sq ft) fitness studio, are included in the hotel.

“Much like the monument it overlooks, The Ritz-Carlton, Astana represents the future of Astana and acknowledges the city’s growing power and prominence,” said Hervé Humler, president and COO, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
