Shangri La Istanbul

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts' first property in Turkey, Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul is 13 stories, six of which are underground so as to protect the historic façade. The building is the second-tallest on the coast after the Dolmabahce Palace.  But this is a palace of today and we doubt anyone ever had lived or even dreamed of living the way they can at the Shangri-La Istanbul. 

This 186-room luxury hotel is located between the Dolmabahce Palace and the Maritime Museum on the European shore of the Bosphorus Strait – the 30-kilometre stretch of water separating Europe and Asia. Set within the Besiktas district, the shopping and transport hub of Istanbul, the hotel is close to the city's financial district and the Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Shangri-La Bosphorus has the most spacious guest rooms in Istanbul.  The minimum size is 453 square feet.  Even the bathrooms are over 100 square feet.  The 17 suites range from 861 square feet to over 3900 square feet.  These luxurious accommodations are decorated in a contemporary style with Asian elements befitting a modern palace and 60 percent have drop dead views of the Bosphorus.

Istanbul is a city that likes eating out and many of the restaurants have great views as well.  Now, the Shangri-La even has the locals waiting to get into their gourmet restaurant IST TOO.  The décor is magical with rose gold floor lamps and spherical ceiling pendants and the food is getting great reviews.  Japanese, Southeast Asian, Mediterranean and of course, Turkish cuisine is served.  In addition an all-day dining restaurant offers a unique combination of Asian and Western cuisines. For exceptional Cantonese cuisine, gastronomes will be heading to the hotel’s Chinese restaurant, with three private dining rooms, a spacious main dining area and intimate booths, offer diners authentic Chinese fare.

The heart of the hotel is the Lobby Lounge, featuring a tea lounge and bar with an outdoor terrace. Breakfast, lunch and an afternoon tea service will be followed by evening entertainment in relaxed yet refined surroundings.

One of the highlights at Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul is CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La, our signature spa brand. CHI, The Spa, Chinese healing therapies, inspired by the mysticism of the Shangri-La legend. The spa features eight spacious private treatment rooms, as well as three hamams.

Other facilities include a health club, furnished with the latest fitness equipment, a beauty salon, luxury retail boutique and an indoor swimming pool.

Our suggestion is to reserve one of the Grand Premier Bosphorus rooms.  They all have private terraces accessed through floor to ceiling windows.  If you really want to go all out contact us to arrange your stay in the Shangri-La Suite.  It has three terraces overlooking the old city of Sultanahmet, the Asian shore of Anatolia and the Bosphorus bridge. It doesn’t get better than this!!!!
