IHG Hotels & Resorts has revealed a debut signing for its luxury InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand in Uzbekistan, with a 216-room property in Tashkent.

InterContinental Tashkent is expected to open towards the end of 2022, showcasing a new modern luxury experience within the capital city.

Enjoying a central location, the newly built hotel’s 216 rooms will include 40 signature suites, of which two will be Presidential Suites, with stunning city views.

Working in opulence

InterContinental Tashkent is being developed in partnership with UzTur Investment and Development as part of the all-new Trilliant Business Park development complex, which comprises InterContinental Tashkent, state-of-the-art offices, high-end retail space and a landscaped park, consciously designed over three towers, and a convention centre.

As a cornerstone of the Trilliant development, InterContinental Tashkent will play an important role in delivering luxury experiences in a more sustainable way, being the first example of a LEED Gold Certified project in Uzbekistan. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is a globally recognised symbol of sustainability, achievement, and leadership, awarded to construction projects being developed in accordance with a framework outlining criteria for efficient and sustainable ventures.

Conscious demand

When completed, InterContinental Tashkent will meet growing demand from consumers for more conscious travel, through the provision of electric charging points for cars, sustainable landscaping, and thoughtful details to minimise its environmental impact. This approach aligns with IHG’s ‘Journey to Tomorrow’, furthering the company’s commitment to sustainable growth.

Commenting on the new signings Willemijn Geels, VP development, Europe at IHG Hotels & Resorts, said: “I am delighted to be announcing the introduction of the InterContinental brand to a new growth market with our valued partner UzTur Investment and Development (Trilliant). The project has been thoughtfully considered at every stage, from its embodiment of the InterContinental brand’s modern luxury philosophy to its reflection of IHG’s ambitions to shape the future of responsible travel. InterContinental Tashkent is the perfect example of how we intend to focus on targeted European growth in 2022, bringing our market-leading brands to new and inviting destinations.”

Towering achievement

The state-of-the-art hotel will aim to transform Tashkent’s skyline as one of the most striking modern buildings within the city’s heartland. Stretching 94 m above sea-level, InterContinental Tashkent’s exterior will be a glamorous example of artistic architecture, designed with the modern luxury traveller in mind.

The hotel’s signature restaurant, Ember, will specialise in serving fire-grilled steaks, sushi and shellfish, while Ember’s bar will feature a landscaped garden with a whisky library, cocktail menu and panoramic skyline views. Other dining options include No’mad, an all-day dining space specialising in Central Asian produce with an open kitchen and bar, and Chach, a lounge area with a patisserie, serving coffee and sharing plates.

Events and wellness

The hotel’s Convention Centre will boast over 2,500 sq m of space – suitable for conferences, luxurious weddings and smaller-scale meetings – with a ballroom, 10 meeting rooms and four VIP suites with sweeping city views.

InterContinental Tashkent’s wellness and lifestyle offerings include a superior spa and wellness club located on the first floor. Facilities will include a 150 sq m swimming pool, treatment rooms, jacuzzi, sauna and hammam, split-level gym, large roof terrace and a pool bar serving smoothies and a grazing menu.

This latest signing follows IHG’s recent growth announcement, which will see 50 new hotels added to its global portfolio in 2022. This includes InterContinental Yao Yai Resort in Thailand, InterContinental Rome Ambasciatori Palace in the Italian capital and InterContinental Sorrento in south eastern Australia.
