President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and his wife Mehriban Aliyeva have attended the opening of “Qarabağ SPA and Resort” hotel complex in Naftalan.
Achievements in the fields of sport, culture, arts and other areas in Azerbaijan, which plays the role of a bridge between Europe and Asia, has increased interest of both foreign businessmen and tourists in the country. Important projects implemented in the field of tourism as a result of President Ilham Aliyev`s successful policy lay strong foundations for this.
There has been a big tourist flow to Azerbaijan in the past years. So complex measures are being taken to develop hotel industry in the country. These hotels offer high-quality services to guests. Azerbaijan, which aims to strengthen its position among developed countries, is hosting a large number of high-profile international events. The development of the non-oil sector is also among key priorities for the country.
The construction of “Qarabağ SPA and Resort” hotel complex is one of the important steps in this field. This complex is an important tourism facility not only for Naftalan, but also for the entire region.
President Ilham Aliyev cut the ribbon symbolizing the official opening of the complex.
It was said that the construction of the facility started in 2012. One of the factors increasing the importance of this complex, which occupies a total area of more than 13 hectares, is that there are many recreation facilities in its area. There is a tennis court, a basketball ground and a golf course. There is also a helipad, 8 km-long walking areas and green areas.
The five-storey facility will offer high-quality services to tourists. The complex, which includes several blocks, once again demonstrates the government`s support of the tourism sector in the country. There are restaurants and cafes in the hotel, which also offer SPA therapy services.
The hotel, which has 132 rooms, can accommodate up to 264 people. The majority of employees here are locals.
