Marriott Hotels has today announced the opening of Minsk Marriott Hotel in early 2016, as the first five-star internationally rated hotel in Belarus.
A signature Marriott greatroom lobby will welcome guests to the new hotel, which will encompass a fresh and contemporary style. Many of its 217 well-appointed suites and guest rooms will boast panoramic riverside views and balconies while guests looking to sample the hotel’s exceptional dining experiences will be spoilt for choice with an array of venues, including a homely Mediterranean restaurant with open kitchen, outdoor hunting restaurant, summer terrace, café, and a rum bar offering a wide range of exclusive rums.
The property will feature a total of 940 square metres of meeting space for both corporate and social events. Facilities will include eight flexible conference rooms and ballroom space that can accommodate up to 400 people, along with a multifunctional space for collaboration, workshops and private meetings for those looking for a bespoke meeting experience.
The services of Minsk Marriott Hotel are supplemented by the high-end facilities of the multifunctional sports and entertainment complex, Falcon Club, which comprises a state-of-the-art sports arena for 2,100-4,500 spectators, modern gym, wellness centre with spa services, tennis and squash academy and cinemas.
This impressive project, a cooperation between Qatar and Belarus, started in June 2012 and has now entered its final stage of construction. The unique falcon-shaped design was inspired by the logo of the owning company; the falcon is the national bird of Qatar and a symbol of force and courage throughout the Middle East, where falconry is a traditional sport and part of the cultural heritage.
