Istanbul, Feb 2015

Marking the completion of the first stage of a majestic renovation, 198 newly designed guestrooms and suites are now open in the west wing of Swissotel The Bosphorus Istanbul, a flagship property for Swissotel Hotels & Resorts and a member of the Leading Hotels of the World.

Conceived by renowned interior design, Khuan Chew of KCA International, the contemporary new look lets the light of the Bosphorus flood into the guestrooms, fusing the very best of Swiss sophistication, precision and simplicity, with the warmth of Turkish culture. From the colours of the Bosphorus and the cityscape, to the textures of the Dolmabahce Gardens, the entwining influences of both Europe and Asia are present in each space. The Bosphorus strait shimmers into view thanks to Chew’s emphasis on floor to ceiling windows in every room and suite, ensuring guests have a real sense of place each time they return.

And the room renovation is merely the beginning; the hotel’s full renovation will see the re-design of the renowned Gaja Rooftop and pool, a new restaurant, and the introduction of seven glamorous Loft Suites – bringing high-life loft living to the banks of the Turkish metropolis with full height brick stone walls, duplex accommodation and statement steel staircases.

“The opening of the beautiful new rooms in the hotel’s west wing marks the completion of an incredibly exciting first phase in our renovation project,” explains Gerhard Struger, general manager, Swissotel The Bosphorus, and regional vice president Turkey & Eastern Europe. “Guests will relish the spectacular views and exquisite design which truly highlight the unique location of our hotel on the banks of the Bosphorus.”

A member of the Leading Hotels of the World and awarded Europe Luxury Hotel 2013 by World Luxury Hotel Awards, Swissotel The Bosphorus is a five-star hotel in the heart of Istanbul on the European banks of the Bosphorus. With 65 acres of historical gardens and 497 guestrooms and suites, the hotel offers a diverse collection of restaurants and bars that leave absolutely nothing to be desired. The hotel’s award-winning Pürovel Spa & Sport offers luxurious holistic spa treatments from all over the world.

Swissotel The Bosphorus, Istanbul also offers guests Swissotel Living, the brand’s residential concept, with 63 elegant apartment suites. Guests can enjoy privacy at their own pace, as well as use of the full range of hotel services including an exclusive rooftop pool.

The west wing of Swissotel The Bosphorus Istanbul opens in February 2015, with 167 Classic Guestrooms, 28 Corner Rooms, and three Suites. The seven Loft Suites will be completed in May 2015.
