An opening date of 14 February 2023 has been confirmed for The Peninsula Istanbul, the newest addition to The Peninsula Hotels’ portfolio of luxurious hotels. The five-star property is a member of the Virtuoso Preview program for highly anticipated new openings.
The waterfront property encompasses four buildings, three of which are protected historical landmarks dating to the early 1900s, each carefully renovated, set amid a quarter-kilometre expanse of blooming gardens along the Bosphorus Strait
Positioned within a new waterfront revitalisation project in Istanbul, the location features museums, restaurants, and boutiques in the harbour district of Karaköy and is in walking distance to Galata Tower, Galata Bridge, The Hagia Sophia Mosque, The Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace.
The Peninsula Istanbul comprises 177 rooms starting at 40-49-sqm to the top-of-the-line 510 sqm Peninsula Suite. Many will provide sweeping Bosphorus views from large windows, balconies, or private terraces; others will include direct access to the property’s gardens, outdoor swimming pool, private boat dock, and stylish luxury boutiques. All will be decorated with bespoke furnishings, original art, modern Turkish design elements like wood-and-mother-of-pearl inlay, kilim-style carpets, and sumptuous bathrooms clad in Marmara marble.
The Peninsula Suite comes with its own hammam, gym, and rooftop swimming pool, making it one of the most opulent and spacious suites available in the city.
“We have spent a lot of time and effort to meticulously restore this beautiful property on the Bosphorus and we look forward to welcoming locals and visitors alike to experience our world-renowned Peninsula hospitality,” said Clement Kwok, Managing Director and CEO of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, owner and operator of The Peninsula Hotels.
“The opening of The Peninsula Istanbul represents a glorious new chapter for our brand, and for luxury travellers,” said Peter Borer, Chief Operating Officer of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Ltd. “With our new property, we are delighted to offer a magnificent new location that fulfils the most discerning travel dreams.”
