Over the last ten years, leisure time spent in the Moscow Region has become very popular, especially when the hotel is by water or in other beautiful natural locations In general, these hotels are designed for people looking for middle level comfort and service, who don’t need more; for those who do, some disappointment is possible. Yahonty Hotels have three hotels in the Region; Noginsk, Avantel Istra and Tarussa. All three are located in areas of outstanding natural beauty and offer sports, swimming and other outdoor activities.

The Yahonty Noginsk Hotel is on the shore of Lake Kovershi, 49 kilometres east of the MKAD. The natural lake, the mixed forest and clean air are the hotel’s assets. The hotel has 306 rooms of different types, including apartments and town houses. It offers separate swimming facilities for adults and children, and for the latter, water slides and a fountain.

The second of our hotels is the Yahonty Avantel Istra, situated 55 kilometres to the west of Moscow, on the shore of the Istrinskoye reservoir. The building is modern and has its own 15-hectare territory of mixed forest. The hotel is smaller than Noginsk with 137 rooms of varying types. It has an indoor swimming pool for adults and for children the pool also has slides and a fountain. The special feature of the hotel is its proximity to the New Jerusalem Monastery.
