Paris may be known as the place for a romantic escapade, but Istanbul is a very strong contender for the title 'City of Love'. It is the perfect getaway for lovers, newlyweds or couples wanting to renew their vows. And what could be more romantic than to stay in a unique hotel with rooms especially furnished for an amorous experience?
Perhaps it is the magical oriental atmosphere that permeates the city. Or maybe its impressive views over the Bosporus and sunsets in the Sea of Marmara. Either way, Istanbul just oozes romance. The city seduces and captivates. The sensual aromas of the bazaars and the mystical sounds from ancient mosques and churches are simply unforgettable. You will fall head over heels in love with Istanbul.
Boutique hotel Witt Suites lies tucked away between the galleries, patios and restaurants of Cihangir, within walking distance of the Istanbul Modern Museum and the bars of Beyoğlu. The 17 rooms are stylishly decorated by design company Autoban which furnished the rooms with grey marble bathrooms, luxurious sofas and Bose iPod docks. The result is a tranquil room that feels like a loft. The comfortable beds with leather headboards are perfect for lazing around all day, and you can order a delicious breakfast in bed at no additional cost.
Defterdar Yokusu, 26
The Four Seasons Hotel on the banks of the Bosporus is one of the most popular wedding venues for Istanbul’s high society. The pale pink former Ottoman palace, with its marble interior, velvet fabrics and stunning hand-painted ceiling decorations, feels more like an intimate resort than a hotel. The main terrace and some of the rooms offer an irresistible romantic view over the river. At night, lit torches illuminate the terrace. The luxury spa at the hotel boasts a special 2-person treatment suite.
Çırağan Cad, 28
Super deluxe rooms with shimmering curtains, walnut wood furniture, an XL-minibar and lovely limestone bathrooms; photos by famous Turkish photographer Ara G on the walls and a wine lounge in the lobby; the Park Hyatt Macka Palas, nestled between the elegant shops in Nişantaşi, features all of this and more. For the ultimate romantic getaway, book the exquisite Spa Suite with a 2-person tub, a private hammam and steam room. And of course a remote control to dim the lights and set the mood.
