Legend has it that the city of Almaty derives its name from the word, “apple," for it is believed to be the ancestral home of the delicious fruit. Once a land filled with apples, today Almaty is a booming, cosmopolitan center filled with commerce, luxury hotels, and shopping, surrounded by the majestic Alatau Mountains. Soaring atop this unique city, on the top ten floors of Esentai Tower is The Ritz-Carlton, Almaty, where the culture of this ancient country flourishes with a modern twist.
As one of the most thoughtfully designed luxury hotels in the city, The Ritz-Carlton, Almaty employs the elements of design to subtly share with guests the intricacies of the Kazakh culture. Because a stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Almaty is about more than simply experiencing glamour, grandeur, and sheer indulgence. It is about enveloping oneself in an entirely new world.
