Halal Hotels Baku?
Nearly 99% of the population of Azerbaijan is nominally Muslim. The rest of the population adheres to other faiths or are non-religious.
Like other tourists, Muslim travelers coming from Islamic countries have particular requirements when they choose the destination for their vacation. Among these requirements, Muslims are concerned about the availability of halal compliant foods (no pork or alcohol in food) and a clean place to pray.
Many international hotels in Baku do serve halal food that is slaughtered in accordance with the teachings of Islamic Sharia and is free of any substances forbidden by Islam such as pork and alcohol.
Other Islamic countries such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Oman and Brunei continue to be popular with Muslim tourists. Among non-OIC countries, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, Japan and Taiwan remain the top five respectively, but show improved scores on the index.

F&B needs to be careful while serving bacon or non-halal items in the buffet or in-house dining.
Shahdag is located 3 hours drive from Baku. You need a proper car / van to drive you there (easy to find online). The road is almost boring with little scenery, so don’t get too excited in the car yet.
Shahdag has three hotels now run by the same group. We stayed in the Pik Palace which is the highest standing of the three.
Park Chalet (across the Pik Palace) is a very good option too, especially if you like the cosy / wood French Alps feel).
The rooms are clean and luxurious. Plenty of natural light. The hotel is fairly new (5 years?) and well-maintain. Service throughout the hotel is prompt and people are keen to make you feel welcome but you will have to smile first to get them to smile (refer to my “it used to be communist” comment).
Overall people are in any case friendly and welcoming throughout Azerbaijan. There is an English communication problem which means if you expect everyone, including at 5 star hotels to understand you from the get go, it wont work. But this should not spoil your stay. Remember to be patient and to smile.
What I loved about the hotel:
1) The Ski is fantastic: just outside the hotel. We were lucky to have beautiful fresh snow (there are snow cannon too just in case) and very few skiers on the slopes. The slopes are good for beginners to confirmed snowboard/ skiers.
Most interesting, the Ski shop where you can rent your skis is based in the basement of the hotel and you can get down with your sleepers (staying inside the hotel), rent your ski gear (and ski clothes if you need), get a locker (to store your gear at night) and get skiing just outside the shop.
It can’t be any easier than that. You can even buy full day ski passes at the shop. Gear was good / clean and rental cost very reasonable. Again, the ability to just go down from my bedroom in sleepers (with ski pants on!), to pick up my skis / put my ski boots on and to go ski was a real luxury. Loved it.
2) There is an indoor / outdoor pool.
The indoor pool is a pleasure to dive into after a day out in the cold. Pool is clean, there is shower / changing rooms / bar / lifeguard on site (who did not hesitate to send some Arabic kids back to their room that were noisy).
The main attraction is really the outdoor pool… How many of us get to ever swim in a pool surrounded by snow ? Water is hot (35c?) yet outside it is minus 5.
Beautiful view of the mountains while you float. It take some courage to walk outside in your swimwear (8 meters at best) as the cold air will remind you that you are in the mountains, not in Hawaii. This pool was one the highlight of our stay. Best Instagram pictures!
The food at the hotel is very good. There are 2 restaurants (local + Italian) and we also ate room service (good and affordable). There are a few more dinner options at the 2 other hotels 2 minutes walk outside the hotel. We focused our dinner picks on Azerbaijani food as we liked it very much.
The breakfast was a delight. Lots of food (salted / Sweet) to please all plates.
