Marriott International opens its second hotel in Belarus with the addition of Minsk Marriott Hotel, the capital’s first 5-star internationally rated hotel, which is now open for business.
The deluxe Minsk Marriott Hotel sits within a new compound located on the Svisloch riverside offering an exceptional range of services under one roof including a sports and entertainment complex, which comprises a state-of-the-art sports arena for 3,000 people complete with cafes and bars, a modern gym, a wellness centre with spa services, a tennis and squash academy and a cinema.
The Minsk Marriott Hotel’s 217 deluxe guest rooms, including 25 suites, are designed with a spacious and upgraded look with tailored solutions that are as inventive as the guest. They reflect elements of the hotel’s locale and Belarussian heritage, including hand-made wall finishings and natural colours and materials to create a calm and elegant environment. Many of the rooms also offer balconies and panoramic riverside views.
