Luxurious hotel with stunning views of Mount Shadag
Feb 2020
As with many experiences in Azerbaijan the Shahdag Mountain Resort is a bit of a conundrum. It has been built, presumably, to capture the nascent skiing market. Consequently, it is a typical skiing facility completely unsympathetic to its surroundings. However, the sheer scale of the Lesser Caucasus means that, despite this, the building is dwarfed by nature.

The hotel is sumptuous (by our standards) and the food and facilities are excellent. The views both from the rooms, the swimming pool and from the restaurant are unsurpassed. There is a lovely walk up to the waterfall at Laza and some basic cafes there and, at appropriate times of year, I'm sure that there are lots of organised activities. I doubt that many of the people who stay here do the walk over the mountains to Khinaliq but I have read that it is astounding.

Middle of nowhere. Nice views but absolutely nothing to do
Feb 2020
The place is very far from everything. Besides 3 fancy and extremely expensive hotels there is nowhere to stay. No shops, no bars - just restaurant in the hotel with high prices and tasteless food. Absolutely nothing to do in the evening. You feel totally trapped there.
Although the slopes are maintained nicely and lifts are very good - it is almost impossible to ski after midday as the snow melts and becomes extremely watery. In the early morning it is opposite - very icy. The skipass costs a fortune and in a rent (the only one there) they try to charge for every movement. Total dissapointment

Absolutely fabulous!!
Mar 2020 • Family
I just came back from a ski trip with friends and family and we stayed at Shahdag Hotel. I have to say that it was one of our best vacations ever!!
The hotel and staff are wonderful and accommodating, and includes a beautiful breakfast every morning (egg station, pancake station, fruits, cheeses, cereals, and about 50 other things) My whole family enjoyed the breakfast and it was a great way to start a day of skiing.
The rooms were great, extremely comfy beds and giant balconies! We actually had snowball fights on the balcony. :-)
And the skiing.... amazing! Some of us are intermediate skiers and were able to enjoy the whole mountain, while others had never skied and took private lessons with the instructors (who are top-notch and so nice)
We loved everything and are actually planning our next trip there soon!!

Shahdag Ski Resort

It is our 4th visit to Shahdag resort. Unforgettable service. Great facilities. We usually stay at Shahdag Hotel. Spacious rooms suitable for both, family and friends. Good selection of food for breakfast and very serviceable people who work there. People working in the hotel and in Shahdag resort are very attentive, helpful and competent. Special praise goes to:1) Bahruz and Edgar, always welcoming with big smile and attention to detail managers of Gondola Restaurant and delicious soups, burgers and mulled wine; 2) Valih and Tofic, great ski and snowboard coaches, who are English-speaking with great work ethic; 3) salespeople at ski shop in Pik Palace where we rent our equipment; and 4) always smiling Zarina working in the lobby of Pik Palace Hotel where we have our Prosecco apes-ski everyday.

Strongly recomend.

Activities during summer - Paragliding, ropeway, hiking, quad bike, cycling
Jul 2019
In summer, weather suddenly turns wet and cold, advisable to carry warm jackets. Otherwise you have to buy from the only shop at the resort. Quad bike seen in the picture (with blue balloon structure) is for kids. Proper Quad bike also available for adults to take a guided tour in the mountains.
