Hyatt Regency is a mixed-use property offering 186 generously sized rooms, suites and long-stay residences, conference and banquet facilities, restaurants, a health club and extensive office space. According to Andre Pury, senior vice president, Hyatt International Europe, Africa, Middle East, Hyatt International is delighted to be able to continue to build on its track record in the C.I.S., following the opening of the Hyatt Regency Baku in 1995, the Hyatt Regency Almaty in 1996 and the Park Hyatt Baku in 1999. We are developing a strong presence in central Asia where we have identified a high level of demand by our international business clientele. We believe that there is also the potential for a substantial increase in future growth, both in the regional economy and through the continuing development of the tourist sector.

Steeped in a rich history, Kyrgyzstan once lay on a network of the trading routes known as the Great Silk Road. With its snow-capped peaks, crystal-clear mountain lakes, lush forests and breathtaking glaciers, Kyrgyzstan offers much to the adventure and the Eco-traveller. The Ala Archa Nature Reserve is one of Kyrgyzstan`s national treasures, while Lake Issyk-Kul, the second largest alpine lake in the world, is an area of outstanding natural beauty. For sports enthusiasts, the country offers white water river rafting, horseback riding, trekking, mountain climbing, snow skiing, fishing, and paragliding. Those not venturing outside the urban centre will find Bishkek to be a spacious, cultural city of considerable ethnic diversity. Home to the State Opera, Ballet, Theatre, and Art Museum, it is well known for its bustling bazaars full of exotic artefacts.
