Not much to see right now, but I guess that will change in the future. I like the fact that it's such a green city though.

The construction of the 28-story JW Marriott tower of the multifunctional complex “Esentai Park” has drawn to a close. Work on the construction of skeletons, faces and roof covering of the tower is fully completed (100%). The hotel will open its doors in the mid 2008. Work on the 20-story high residential tower is expected to continue throughout 2008.

aloha.

Esentai Park is looking absolutely phenomenal. i would LOVE to visit Almaty someday; this project looks extremely upscale and Almaty's renaissance seems too good to miss.

i found two images of what the rooms at the JW Marriott Almaty will look like when the hotel opens in August 2008. i'll post them below for you guys to view.

i also discovered that Marriott posted a new website for the hotel; check back to see if new photos are released and if reservations can be made. site: http://www.marriott.com/hotels/trave...-esentai-tower

cheers.
