About Four Seasons Hotel Baku 

Straddling the Middle East, Europe and Asia, the enigmatic capital of Azerbaijan sits on the coast of the opal-blue waters of the Caspian Sea, with the Caucasus Mountains to the west. With its beaux-arts-style Four Seasons Hotel Baku is perched along the waterfront in the heart of central Baku, with the medieval walls of the World UNESCO Heritage site – Inner City just steps away and a trio of flame-shaped, modern skyscrapers flickering nearby. It’s a contrast that perfectly sums up Baku city: ancient, modern and a little daring, all at once.
