The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul: Elevated splendour in The Ritz-Carlton Suite

The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul has pulled back the curtains on its transformed top suite – The Ritz-Carlton Suite – following a comprehensive, two-year long renovation across its stunningly appointed guestrooms and top-notch event spaces. 

The Ritz-Carlton Suite, gracing the 14th floor of the opulent hotel, spans an impressive 240m2, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering unprecedented vistas across the Bosphorus. 

Responsible for the renovation of the masterpiece was famed Turkish architect, Hakan Yürüoğlu, who also brought his exquisite eye to the redevelopment of all banqueting areas, including the grand ballroom.

With a design that truly reflects the rich culture of Istanbul, The Ritz-Carlton Suite is the hotel’s crown jewel. In keeping with the other 243 guestrooms, gold and copper hues are combined with highlights of rich blue to reflect the rich history of the Ottoman Empire. A unique mix of colours and materials have been used to emphasise the city’s undeniable charm, including stone, wood and metals.

“Our mission for this important project was to embrace the heritage of the city and marry it with a contemporary spirit to create a beautiful combination of the East and West influences that are found in Istanbul,” Nicolas Kipper, general manager, The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul stated.  

Comprising a luxuriously appointed king bedroom, a separate living room and a work space, The Ritz-Carlton Suite will further woo guests with a spa hot tub complemented by views of the Bosphorus, as well as two full marble bathrooms with rain showers and soaking tubs.

Other amenities include complimentary access to the exclusive, well-appointed Club Lounge and a 42-inch flat-screen IPTV. For guests travelling in a larger group, The Ritz-Carlton Suite provides the upmost flexibility with two connecting rooms available to accommodate up to seven guests. 

Located in the heart of the city, The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul is set against the backdrop of stunning Bosphorus shores. The elegant property provides a perfect blend of culture, hospitality and sophistication at the heart of the world’s crossroads between Asia and Europe.
