Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus reflects the changing face of modern Istanbul, infusing a 19th century Ottoman palace with the contemporary elegance of its waterfront setting. The Hotel is located on the European banks of the legendary Bosphorus strait with views across to the hills of Asia. Inside, stylish interiors offer a refreshing take on traditional Ottoman design, creating a fitting base from which to explore the upscale shops, restaurants and bars of the city’s modern center. Opened in 2008 , Four Seasons Bosphorus most recently named ‘Best Large City Hotel in Europe – 2012’ by Travel & Leisure Magazine.

The Hotel’s 170 rooms occupy the original palace building and two new wings. Light, understated interiors reflect the coastal location, while decorative Turkish touches and traditional artworks allude to the Bosphorus as the former summer retreat of the Ottoman elite.

Extensive outdoor amenities – including heated pool and whirlpool, bar pavilions and the Wedding Garden – are located along a 190 m (623 ft) waterfront terrace, framed by the Bosphorus and its ever - changing landscape of boats, yachts, cruise-ships and ferries. Beneath the terrace is a 2,100 sq m (22,605 sq ft) spa, sky-lit from above, featuring three hammams / Turkish baths. Function facilities include two ballrooms, which can accommodate receptions for up to 1,000 people.

The Hotel is the company’s second property in the city and marks a distinct change from the first, Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet. The service, however, remains unmistakably Four Seasons and offers a seamless continuation of the standards for which the original property is so revered.

Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus has 145 guest rooms and 25 suites. The bright and airy rooms overlook a variety of waterfront, garden and city views with nearly a quarter featuring views across the Bosphorus strait to the hills of Asia.

The rooms feature a striking blend of Ottoman design and contemporary furnishings. Subtle handpainted ceiling motifs mirror the geometric shapes of the fabrics below, while handcrafted ‘Hiref’ mirrors and lithographs representative of Turkish and Ottoman art adorn the walls. In the suites, freestanding baths and pendulous glass lanterns enhance the modern elegance of the design.

The four Palace Roof Suites feature private rooftop terraces with a 180-degree view of the Bosphorus, across to the Bosphorus Bridge on one side and the distant skyline of the Old Town on the other. The second floor Atik Pasha Suite can be configured for up to three bedrooms and includes a grand foyer, living / entertainment area and dining room for up to ten guests.

The SPA

The SPA at Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus introduces a decadent approach to the authentic hammam (Turkish bath) experience, combining the traditional cleansing properties of the bath with the indulgent delights of contemporary, western treatments. Covering an area of 2,100 sq m (22,605 sq ft), the Spa includes three separate hammams (men’s, women’s and couples) – a first in the city. Nine treatment rooms and one VIP Spa suite (with whirlpool) are arranged around a pillared pool, sky-lit from a height of 6.7 m (22 ft). The pool features underwater music, whirlpool and poolside relaxation areas. Other features include pre- and post-treatment lounges and men’s and women’s locker areas with steam room and sauna.

The Spa’s hammam experience blends the time- honoured Turkish bathing ritual with a 21st century sensibility. Guests are taken on a journey through several stages of cleansing, purification, massage and relaxation, scented with traditional attar (essences) of rose, pine, sandalwood or lemon. In addition to cleansing rituals, the Spa offers a series of customised hammam treatments, where a bathing ritual is combined with one or more modern therapies (such as salt peels, facials and ‘wrapless wraps’) to maximise the beneficial heat of the hammam. Treatments are based around all-natural Sodashi, Ayurvedic Sundari and French Biologique Rechercehe products.

The design of The SPA is subtle and understated, decorated in light marble with coloured mosaic tiles. The minimalist interiors are punctuated by indigenous touches, such as ornate tas (water bowls), kese (cloths for rubbing down) and pestemal (a wrap worn in place of a robe). Accents of wood and motherof- pearl on jewellery boxes and hand-held mirrors further infuse an air of Ottoman elegance.

Hammams evolved from the Roman bath and were originally used for ritualistic, religious cleansing. They soon developed into a popular social gathering, where separate groups of men and women would meet to prepare for and celebrate ceremonies and social events. The SPA at Four Seasons Hotel Bosphorus extends these traditions with a range of celebratory group packages.

Fitness Studio

The Hotel’s bright and airy Fitness Studio occupies a private 324 sq m (3,488 sq ft.) area, set apart from Spa & Hammam.

The ballroom’s access lifts can accommodate cars up to the size of a Hummer, making the ballroom ideal for car launches. The Bosphorus Ballroom, with its lovely garden views, suits pre-event receptions. A further six meeting rooms, named after local Bosphorus districts, can be adapted for a variety of gatherings from board meetings to small banquets.

At the Hotel, the emphasis is on the outdoors and access to the Atik Pasha Terrace from the ballrooms and meeting rooms allows for refreshing breaks during meetings and conferences. The Wedding Garden is accessed via the conference area, a sweeping marble staircase or direct from the Bosphorus via the Hotel’s private dock.
