JW Marriott Absheron Baku

A skyscraper with Caspian Sea views

Gifted with a waterfront location and a stellar skyline, JW Marriott Absheron Baku makes the most of its spectacular surroundings to the tune of a 237-room skyscraper on the shore of the Caspian Sea. Floor-to-ceiling windows in every unit and a 21st-floor indoor pool ensure those sweeping vistas are never out of reach, though there’s plenty within the luxury hotel’s walls to keep you entertained.

In a fun nod to Azerbaijan’s carpet-making culture, JW Marriott Absheron Baku’s interiors don’t shy away from color. Flame-inspired Fireworks Urban Kitchen embraces its theme with red lightning while quirky touches such as orange rubber ducks adorn signature dining venue Zest. When you’re ready to rest your head, brightly hued accent pillows provide a subtle pop of color in otherwise crisp, neutral-toned rooms.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The luxury hotel’s onsite garden does double duty as a relaxing retreat for guests and a supplier of herbs and fresh produce for the property’s restaurants. Look for dishes like the burrata, strawberry and basil salad at Fireworks Urban Kitchen that feature just-plucked produce.
  • The thought of an indoor pool might conjure up mixed reactions from the jet-set crowd, but rest assured that JW Marriott Absheron Baku’s version is strictly luxe. An ornately carved backlit wall shines directly onto the tranquil blue waters, providing a stunning backdrop for morning dips.
  • After a day of exploring Baku’s sights, treat yourself to some well-deserved pampering at the Absheron Spa. Enjoy the fruits of the hotel’s onsite garden with a JW Garden Essentials massage, a treatment infused with Baku botanicals for a local twist.
  • Accommodations are spacious for a city-center hotel, starting at 452 square feet. The supremely comfortable rooms have window walls with skyline views and marble bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs in which to unwind after a day of sightseeing.
  • Book lovers will make themselves at home at JW Marriott Absheron Baku’s Badikube lobby library. Boasting a modern cubist aesthetic, nooks for curling up with titles focusing on Azerbaijan’s culture, history and contemporary works, this hideaway is a bookworm’s dream come true.

The Restaurants

  • Dine on succulent steaks and other flame-grilled fare in the moody environs of Fireworks Urban Kitchen. The red-hued dining room’s design was inspired by fire, a theme that continues through the kitchen’s mouthwatering offerings, including charred salads, grilled prime meats and locally inspired kebabs.
  • By day, enjoy the citrus-forward flavors of Mediterranean- and Azerbaijani-inspired cuisine at Zest Lifestyle Cafe. Quirky, colorful accents play on the restaurant’s garden theme — look for orange gnomes and playful ceramic frogs dotting the wood-paneled space.
  • Italy meets Baku in the chic black and gold surroundings of OroNero Bar & Ristorante. Inspired by Azerbaijan’s mineral wealth, the restaurant’s unique interiors shimmer with gilded chandeliers and mosaics that reflect wonderfully off of black leather seats and charcoal-colored walls.
  • Oro Nero Bar & Ristorante’s Italian menu gets a luxurious upgrade with ingredients like beluga caviar, wagyu and truffle. Start your meal with an indulgent caviar course before digging into dishes such as tartufata e funghi (mushroom pizza with truffle cream) and wagyu ribeye with a balsamic reduction.
  • Indulge in an Azerbaijani-style afternoon tea in the colorful Tea Lounge. Sip on local brews while savoring sweet and savory treats, including locally grown sweet figs, served simply with no accouterment needed.
