Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will manage a second luxury hotel in Istanbul, Turkey. The project, which also features branded residences, is scheduled to open in 2022.
The new development comprises three standalone towers and is located in the exclusive Etiler residential area, close to the city’s central business district. One of the towers will house Mandarin Oriental Etiler, Istanbul with 158 guestrooms and suites and 16 serviced apartments. The remaining two towers will house 251 luxurious Residences at Mandarin Oriental. UNStudio from Amsterdam has been appointed as the master planner and architect.
The hotel will have three restaurants and bars, and a selection of adaptable meeting spaces with outdoor areas and terraces, ideal for hosting both business and leisure events. There will also be a spa and fitness centre, offering the Group’s award-winning signature wellness programs as well as locally inspired treatments. The hotel will have both an indoor and outdoor swimming pool.
The Residences at Mandarin Oriental will feature some of the most exclusive homes in the city, providing owners with extensive private gardens and impressive views of the Bosphorus. Owners will also enjoy Mandarin Oriental’s legendary service and direct access to the hotel’s facilities. Additionally, there will be a full suite of facilities for residents, including two outdoor swimming pools with city skyline views, a fitness centre and six beauty treatment rooms.
The owners and developers of the project are Astaș Holding A.Ş and Yapi & Yapi. This is the Group’s third venture in Turkey with Astaș Holding A.Ş, who own the Group’s two other Turkish properties: the award-winning Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum and Mandarin Oriental Bosphorus, Istanbul (which is scheduled to open in 2020).
