IHG Hotels & Resorts has announced the signing of the first Vignette Collection property in Kazakhstan.

The 95-room hotel in the city of Almaty will open in the first half of 2027 and be part of the Meliora mixed-use development by Hayat Construction.

The signing marks IHG’s second luxury and lifestyle hotel in Kazakhstan, joining the existing InterContinental Almaty.

The Vignette Collection property will further strengthen IHG’s presence in the region, where it already has three Vignette Collection hotels open and seven more in the pipeline.

The new hotel will be strategically situated on the main road near the city centre, offering easy access to the airport and key attractions such as Kok Tobe Park.

The Vignette Collection brand focuses on offering guests unique and memorable experiences in distinctive destinations.

The Almaty property will embody this philosophy with its Memorable Ritual and A Means For Good intiatives.

Memorable Rituals connect guests with the local culture, while A Means For Good projects see each Vignette Collection hotel collaborate with a local non-profit organisation to make a positive impact on the community.

Guests at the Vignette Collection Almaty can expect stylish rooms, a destination restaurant and bar, and premium wellness facilities including a spa and gym.

This signing brings IHG’s portfolio in Kazakhstan to ten properties.

It also reflects the growing trend of hotel conversions in which owners seek to retain their individuality while benefiting from IHG’s global reach, expertise in luxury and lifestyle hospitality, and the IHG One Rewards loyalty programme.

Launched in 2021, IHG’s Vignette Collection has experienced rapid growth with aspirations to reach more than 100 hotels globally by 2031.

There are seven Vignette Collection hotels in Europe, including the Hotel Alexandra in Italy, Alte Post in Germany, the Casa da Companhia and Lisbon Convent Square in Portugal, and the Halyard Liverpool in the UK.
