Opt to arrive at the hotel by boat and you’ll be greeted by a sparkling white marble terrace fronting a 19th century former Ottoman palace. Inside, décor is classic and elegant, with links to the building’s royal past in the hand-painted ceilings, silk carpets, 18th-century engravings, lashings of marble and sparkling chandeliers.
Bed and Bath
The 141 rooms and 25 suites are beautifully decorated in muted tones of beige and taupe, aqua and teal blue, complemented with mahogany wood furniture and silk curtains. Bright kilims, embroidered cushions, framed antique prints and ornate ceiling decorations lend a sense of history and place. But, fear not, you’ve got all the modern high-tech necessities–WiFi, satellite TV, DVD players and game consoles (upon request). The gleaming marble bathrooms all have a separate tub and powerful shower as well as L’Occitane amenities.
Start the day with a relaxed buffet breakfast on the terrace, watching the never-ending stream of boats ply the Bosphorus. In the evening, you can feast on AQUA’s Italian and Turkish specialties, including roasted lamb shoulder stuffed with minted artichokes, Pecorino cheese and fava beans, before relaxing with an after-dinner cocktail at the Pool Bar and Grill. Take a break from sightseeing to lounge around the outdoor, turquoise-blue swimming pool. Or head to the vast basement spa, which features three marble hammams and a mosaic-lined pool.
In the Area
The Ottoman glitz of Dolmabahçe Palace is just a short walk away, so you can get there early to beat the tour buses. Sultanahmet is the historic heart of the city and home to its most famous sights: Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Shop-til-you-drop, from the labyrinthine Grand Bazaar to Nisantasi’s international designers, Galata’s avant-garde fashion and Çukurcuma’s treasure trove of antique and vintage shops. Mikla, on top of the Marmara Pera, is as famous for its show-stopping views as its fabulous fusion menu. Don’t miss partying under the stars at the Bosphorus super club, Reina.
