Appears to be a standard stop on the tourist route to Karakol and back. Karven is set out on a giant lot of the edge of lake Issyk-Kul. Be warned, you are quite far from anything so don't think you can stroll down the street to amuse yourself. Certainly it would appear that it's set up to be entirely self-contained....

Place has so much to offer but only in season. We stayed in October and the place had nothing working. The kitchen also has only limited food available. Rooms are small. Bathroom floor being heated was the best thing. Nice boardwalk and private beach.

Whether you like it or not depends on your personal tastes and preferences. Certainly, it's a hotel with international standard rooms, - they are spacious and comfortable (though the bed was way too hard for me, not something I usually mention unless it's extreme). However, for being something like the ultimate luxury in Kyrgyzstan, there are obviously things missing for...

I attended a business conference in this hotel. The chalet to which I was assigned was vast, clean but curiously had only minute towels in the bathroom. The place was very popular with visitors from Russia and Kazakhstan and overall my experience was very good. The pluses were that it was well maintained (quite an achievement in that part of...

The accommodation we had was in a chalet with the rooms on 2 floors. It felt a bit like a student's hall of residence. There were individual bungalows available. There are lots of amenities, such as a large indoor pool, gymnasium, mini-supermarket, bar, games room, water park and children's play area. The staff we spoke to were courteous and helpful....

If you're into a sanitised vacation in a far-off land, this will do nicely for you - as it seems to do for spade loads of Russians, safe in the knowledge that they have reached Shangri-la. There's actually nothing wrong with it, international standard hotel rooms, individual bungalow alternatives, laid on entertainment, a private beach, the calm waters if Issy...

After weeks on desert and mountain roads I was looking forward to a relaxing stay on the shore of Issyk Kul. The Karven Four Seasons resort did not disappoint. A definite 4 to 5 star establishment with well maintained rooms (Building 1), large restaurant and a short 5-minute walk to the beach, swimming pool, futsul pitch, tennis court, water park...

We hab a house for 6 people, the house was very big with everything you can think about what is needed at holidays. The restaurants served very good food and drinks. The beach is perfekt for beach-volleyball. Breakfast is European style and nothing is missing, perfekt!

Though it seems like a huge campus filled with cookie cutter blocks of concrete and less of a 'Resort', the property is located in a great place and with easy access to a private beach on the Lovely Lake Issyuk kul. Cant beat that! But that is where the value ends. the rooms are bland, the fittings look dated and...
