5 Stars and 6 Stripes
As we neared the area of Bilgah after a 15-minute drive, it became clear that this was one of the most prestigious, private residential addresses in Baku’s suburbs. And when the hotel came into view the architectural style of the Jumeirah was obvious. The main entrance, as well as the road to the hotel, was flanked by giant white glowing balls of light which bathed the resort in a somewhat surreal but welcoming feeling. At the main entrance General Manager Mete Atakuman and members of his team welcomed us, attired in traditional Azerbaijan costume. The Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel--Baku’s most exclusive luxury beach resort (and corporate playground) with nearly a thousand feet of private beach on the Caspian Sea. ... (CLICK HERE for more)
Jumeirah Baku - Arrival - Thorsten Buehrmann & Mete Atakuma
... The enormous Presidential Suite (170 square meters), and the impressive Ambassador Suite as well, are located on the upper floors, and are reached by glass elevators displaying a full-length view of the atrium's striking chandelier. The Presidential suite--with its gold-leaf Louis Quatorze furnishings and its Steinway baby grand piano--and the Ambassador Suite--with its silver fabrics and accents throughout-- both offer stunning views of the Caspian. Here the designer used Neo-Classical design combined with Baroque art (and a couple of casually placed modern accents) to create the feeling of a gracious and timeless home away from home. Opulent bedrooms are dressed with luscious linens and luxurious marble, and bathrooms feature spa amenities by Clarins, a French skincare line. ... (CLICK HERE for more)
Jumeirah Baku Beach - Accommodation
... Whether one is planning a conference or a meeting, the fact that the Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel is within easy to reach of the city of Baku is priceless. With its lovely gardens and terraces overlooking the Caspian Sea, the Jumeirah is a wonderful setting for weddings and family affairs. We congratulate General Manager Mete Atakuman, who opened this exclusive beach resort in the country of Azerbaijan and has managed the Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel successfully since its inception in 2011. With his diplomas in Hospitality Management from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, and the Marmara University of Istanbul, Atakuman's credentials made him the Jumeirah's ideal and perfect choice. We highly recommend the Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel, with its wonderful traditional Azeri kitchen and the surrounding incredible Caspian Sea, for an escape from the buzz of Baku, or from wherever you are. ...

* Seven Stars Award™ Introduction
Dear Friends, Thorsten Buehrmann
We are delighted to report about a new exclusive beach resort on the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan, located within fifteen minutes from the capitol city of Baku. The inner city of Baku, whose first written evidence of existence dates to the first century A.D., along with the Shirvanshah's Palace and Maiden Tower, are designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Baku boasts a wealth of history and urban nightlife, definitely making it the up-and-coming place to discover maybe already before the 2015 European Games. As the Caspian Sea is famous for its healing air, the Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel is an ideal retreat for those seeking a relaxing escape, and like to discover the area and experience their inspiring authentic Azeri cuisine. In true Jumeirah style, the hotel's main lobby is a stunning atrium displaying a190-foot gold and silver-plated chandelier sparked by 72,000 LED lights. Besides its reputation for the finest in creative cuisine, the Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel is perhaps best known for as corporate playground, the extent of its culinary options and the "Talise Spa".
Until next month from Hotel Altantik Kempinski in Hamburg, Germany and Dubai, U.A.E.
I remain yours truly
