Central Asia’s Largest Hotel Offers Luxury and Affordability
King Hotel Astana – the largest hotel in Central Asia – has much more than its size to be proud of. This upscale property specializes in four-star facilities and services at affordable prices, and it is a top choice among visitors to Kazakhstan. The hotel has 289 guestrooms and 165 serviced apartments, for a total capacity of 700 guests. Luxury amenities include a cigar bar, highly rated Sadaf restaurant, a trendy lobby bar, a world-class spa, and many special services, including a tourism office within the hotel.
General Director Alimov Zhumatai points out that high quality along with reasonable prices give King Hotel Astana its competitive edge. He says, “We have earned a very strong reputation here in Astana thanks to our generous policies. For example, breakfast and dinner are included in the room rate. Our excellent food and beverage offerings are also very popular, which is why King Hotel Astana often hosts important meetings and events for government and business leaders. We expect a strong growth in visitor numbers during Expo 2017.”
Ready to welcome more tourism visitors
Around 60% of the hotel’s guests are executive travelers, but Mr. Zhumatai expects to see more tourism visitors as Kazakhstan’s tourism industry takes off. He says, “We are already getting more guests because of Expo 2017, since some people are coming to Astana early to prepare for the event, and as Kazakhstan develops all its beautiful and exciting tourism attractions, we know that more global travelers will discover our country.”
Looking to the future, Mr. Zhumatai and the hotel’s owners aim to boost King Hotel Astana’s rating from four-star to five-star and to establish a chain of hotels with King Hotel as the flagship property. He says, “We envision a chain which will be recognized not only in Central Asia but also in Europe and worldwide.”
