The InterContinental Almaty hotel in Kazakhstan was opened in December 1996, offering a country on the threshold of independence a taste of five star luxury and refinement like nowhere else.
Today, after decades of successful operations, the hotel continues to offer all the modern amenities of its western rivals, yet retains the subtle, aesthetic beauty and warm hospitality so important to Kazakh tradition.
The hotel delivers a unique combination of local hospitality, world-class facilities, spacious living and meeting space, with a perfect city centre location for all visitors’ business or vacation desires.
The Tian Shan Mountains – known locally as the “mountains of heaven” - provide a magnificent backdrop for InterContinental Almaty, situated in the heart of the city within immediate vicinity of the Presidential Residence and other prime business and entertainment addresses.
The Tian Shan Mountains offer a stunning backdrop to the property
The hotel has excellent transport links to Almaty International Airport and all the city’s important tourist attractions. Republic Square, for example, is very close to the hotel; it will take no more than five minutes to get there by foot and it is probably the best place in the city to arrange to meet someone.
Koktobe Mountain offers visitors the best view of Almaty, and the short drive will take you to Medeu and Chimbulak – the famous ice skating rink and ski slope that are busy with preparations for the 7th Asian Winter Games that will be held in Astana and Almaty in 2011.
