In an effort to promote local art and artisans, Dushanbe Serena Hotel hosts painting exhibition for emerging artists every month. “Aiming at promoting local art, we invite our guests, not only to appreciate and encourage the artists but connect them for economic reasons.

The five-star luxury hotel has been designed and developed as a social and business hub for the residents of Dushanbe as well as the foreigners visiting the capital city for business or leisure. “We plan to expand the hotel chain in the next few years; Tajikistan is a beautiful and promising country with lots of opportunities, however there is need for improvement in terms of infrastructure and simplifying the visa application process to attract more tourists. Managing a hotel here is a challenge, but it is interesting and keeps us motivated. Our dedication and commitment are rewarded with the fact that Dushanbe Serena Hotel is the first choice, both for local and international travellers.”
