Located in the forest area in Almaty, Kazakhstan - Swissôtel Wellness Resort Alatau Almaty invites guests for a wellness stay in a natural holistic environment.

Here, guests can rebalance, invigorate and be transported away from their busy lives to a retreat of tranquillity and calmness. Thermal water pools, various temperature zones and the fitness room are available to guests. Pürovel Spa & Sport wellness centre is perfect for relaxing with the whole family.

The hotel experience is enhanced by five restaurants offering a truly unique and carefully cultivated culinary concept that transports guests on a gastronomic journey like no other. At The Quarter restaurant guests can enjoy a perfect blend of local cuisine with a fusion touch. The Wellness Restaurant is for those who appreciate a healthy diet - the menu features dishes based on the concept of mindful eating, prepared with locally sourced ingredients. Chic and contemporary – yet casual, the Moxie Bar, is the perfect spot to enjoy an occasional drink with friends, colleagues, or cosy date night for couples.
