Today, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov made a working trip to Ashgabat, familiarizing himself with the construction of a luxury hotel with a multi-profile business center “Karakum”. This facility, being built in the northern part of the capital, along A. Niyazov and Hoja Ahmet Yasava Street, is planned to be commissioned by the 30th anniversary of Turkmenistan's independence.
In the 9-storey building of the hotel, which is located on an area of 6.9 hectares, the project provides 87 comfortable rooms, including standard, suite, luxury and super luxury. In addition, there are restaurants, a banquet hall, swimming pools, a fitness room equipped with various exercise machines, a tennis court, etc. The business center will create appropriate conditions for holding business meetings.
It is noteworthy that the architectural embodiment and design of the complex, located near the International Airport of the capital, reflects one of the unique natural attractions of Turkmenistan - the majestic Karakum desert with its unique landscapes.
The flowing contours of the central part of the building and the two side buildings resemble waves of sand. And the yurt, organically complementing the architectural ensemble, will emphasize the national flavor.
After reviewing the state of affairs at the facility, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov emphasized that according to all criteria, including equipment and provision of high-quality service, the “Karakum” hotel must meet international standards and requirements for such new buildings.

The “Karakum” hotel, the design and color scheme of which, including the golden color of the windows, correspond to its name, is intended to become a visible symbol of the triumph of the primordial traditions of hospitality for which the Turkmen people are famous. As the leader of the nation noted, a special cultural program should also be developed for tourists and foreign guests coming to our country, including the organization of sightseeing tours to the sights of the capital.
