World-leading IHG Hotels & Resorts has announced a debut signing for its leading luxury InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand in Uzbekistan at the heart of Tashkent. Slated to open towards the end of 2022, the latest signing showcases a new modern luxury experience. It follows the group's recent growth statement, which will see 50 hotels added to the global Luxury and Lifestyle portfolio in 2022.

InterContinental Tashkent will comprise 216 rooms, including 40 signature suites, of which two will be Presidential Suites, boasting panoramic cityscape views, expert wellness facilities and delectable dining offers.

Developed in partnership with UzTur Investment and Development (Trilliant), the hotel will be part of the all-new Trilliant Business Park development complex, which also comprises state-of-the-art offices, high-end retail zones, a convention centre and a landscaped park consciously designed across three towers.

As a cornerstone of the Trilliant development, InterContinental Tashkent will serve a key role in offering luxury experiences more sustainably, being the first example of a LEED Gold Certified project in Uzbekistan. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is an internationally respected symbol of sustainability, achievement, and leadership, awarded to construction projects developed per a framework outlining criteria for efficient and sustainable ventures.

Upon completion, InterContinental Tashkent will meet growing demand from consumers for more conscious travel via 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, reinforcing the company's commitment to sustainable growth.

Willemijn Geels, VP of Development, Europe at IHG Hotels & Resorts, was delighted to announce the InterContinental brand's debut to a new growth market with their valued partner UzTur Investment and Development.

"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 be new and inviting destinations."

The state-of-the-art InterContinental Tashkent brings the world's first and largest luxury hotel brand, InterContinental, to a major new city-centre location, transforming Tashkent's skyline as one of the most striking modern structures within the city's heartland. Stretched 94 metres above sea level, the hotel's exterior will be a glamourous model of artistic architecture, designed with the modern luxury traveller in mind.

InterContinental Tashkent's signature restaurant, Ember, is also set to become one of the most acclaimed eateries in the region, offering fire-grilled steaks, sushi and shellfish. Ember bar will include a landscaped garden with a whisky library, cocktail menu and sweeping skyline sights. Other dining options include No'mad, an all-day dining venue specialising in Central Asian produce with an open kitchen and bar, and Chach, a lounge area with a patisserie serving coffee and sharing plates.

The hotel will feature 2,500 square metres of event and meeting space for business travellers, including a ballroom with ten meeting rooms and four VIP suites overlooking the beautiful cityscape. InterContinental Tashkent will become an ideal destination for conferences, luxurious weddings and smaller-scale meetings.

With a superior spa and wellness club on the first floor, InterContinental Tashkent will also pioneer the way for the city's wellness and lifestyle offerings. Facilities will include a 150 square metre swimming pool, treatment rooms, Jacuzzi, sauna and hammam, split-level gym, spacious roof terrace and a pool bar serving smoothies and a grazing menu.
