Raffles Istanbul setting up for opening in summer 2014

Raffles Istanbul is planning to get the perfect personification of the new Istanbul with the zealous, eclectic and cutting-edge entry this summer.

Located in the heart of the Zorlu Center the most happening place of Istanbul and fashion, food and art hub, the hotel is being embellished with an impressive artwork collection, contracted from the local artists and a blend of mosaic works, sculptures, iconic and artistic photography and videos along with a Bosphorus view.

The hotel will have 181 rooms and suites, a ballroom with a 1,200 person capacity, two restaurants and bars, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a heliport. It will also be home to a signature Raffles Spa, which is set to be one of the largest spas in Istanbul.

The convergence of fashion, art and performance will be the unique feature of Raffles Istanbul. The hotel will also portray Turkish culture and heritage giving the location its authenticity. “Turkey is a rising star of the global economy and Istanbul is a rising star of global tourism,” said Peter French, president of Raffles Hotels & Resorts.

“Travellers have come to Istanbul for thousands of years, it is a place where people meet, tell stories, exchange ideas, relax, rejuvenate and set out again on their journeys. And it is this tradition of bringing people together which is very much part of the Raffles philosophy and this is an essential feature of the story of Raffles in Istanbul”. He added.

Raffles Istanbul will bring absolute splendour and luxury to the city.
