St Regis: Cool Istanbul

Hotel St Regis, Istanbul © Starwood Hotels & Resorts

Part of Starwood Hotels and Resorts, the highly anticipated St. Regis Istanbul has recently opened in the elegant Nisantasi district, above Parc Maçka, surrounded by chic boutiques and art galleries. Now each of the 118 bedrooms and suites benefit from a breath-taking panoramic view over the Bosphore. The main attraction has to be the Bentley Suite with its sophisticated design, the second in the world after the brand’s flagship Bentley Suite in New York. Conceived by Turkish architect Emre Arolat, the St. Regis Istanbul embodies a modern interpretation of contemporary art, such as the spectacular Lasvit chandelier that enthrones the central lobby. On the rooftop resides the ultra designer Spago restaurant, headed up by Wolfgang Puck. Inspired by his travels, this chef prioritises a creative menu that changes with the seasons. We love the “Louis” cocktail of blue crab and lobster, embellished with a spiced tomato-horseradish, grilled pork chops with aioli and harissa, accompanied by grilled aubergines…But this is no excuse to forget to take a look at the St. Regis Brasserie which, with its open kitchen and outdoor terrace is reminiscent of a Parisian café and the Petit O Bar. As for the Iridium spa with its seven treatment rooms, this offers personalised treatments, which respond to the desires of each guest in an idyllic setting. It also includes an indoor pool and fitness centre. A.FM
