Celebrate Novruz At Four Seasons Hotel Baku

March 3, 2018 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

During the most captivating season of the year, Four Seasons Hotel Baku invites its guests to experience an unforgettable time celebrating Novruz, the national holiday that welcomes the coming of spring in Azerbaijan.

From March 19 to April 10, 2018, Four Seasons Hotel Baku inspires guests to immerse themselves in the festivities, with a new and exclusive package, where guests will receive a complimentary fourth night with every three consecutive paid nights. Just steps away from the central Boulevard and The Old City, an abundance of cultural rituals take place in Baku, including the Feast of Novruz and the much anticipated Fire Jumping tradition.

With Novruz approaching on March 21, guests can feel the first breath of spring at Four Seasons Hotel Baku, the perfect place to toast to the New Year.

Cultural Rituals in Baku

Moments from the cultural hub of the city, Four Seasons Hotel Baku boasts the capital’s most high-profile location, with the main celebrations of Novruz taking place in the Old City. Guests can explore the historical quarters and venture to the Maiden’s Tower or Market Square to admire the local people dressed in traditional clothes, school children taking part in festive dancing and folk bands performing traditional Azerbaijani songs.

The Feast of Novruz

A significant part of Novruz festivities revolve around food – tables are set with Novruz Xoncasi, a display of traditional dishes and beautiful decorations such as hand-painted eggs, candles and green sprouting wheat, symbolising the arrival of spring. To further enhance their stay at Four Seasons Hotel Baku, guests will receive their very own Novruz Xoncasi in their room to symbolise the beginning of new life and prosperity.

Fire Jumping

Perhaps the most anticipated event of Novruz is fire jumping, a tradition dating back 2,500 years. According to ancient tradition, fire is symbol of purification and therefore when someone jumps over a fire, his or her troubles are taken away before the start of the New Year. On the eve of Novruz, guests can expect to see bonfires light up the entire city witnessing first hand how this fascinating fire jumping ritual captivates the city of Baku.

The Celebrate Novruz – Fourth Night Free offer may be booked online.
