There is nothing more luxuriously indulgent than enjoying a cool tall drink in the warm bubbles of a Jacuzzi overlooking the languid waters of the Bosphorus.
One of the highlights of summer is the opening of the Outside Air Spa of The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul, and this year the hotel is offering more treatments, more relaxation and more reasons to visit than ever before.
“Our Open Air Spa is proving to be incredibly popular this year,” said Bulent Tuysuz, the hotel’s Spa Manager. “People find that the view is just as relaxing as the treatments we offer, but we have also introduced a few new ideas that guests and visitors are finding irresistible.”
Among these are chilled stone therapies (30 minutes for 120 TL), soothing mint foot treatments (30 minutes for 100 TL), ice masks (just 50 TL) and pre-sun treatments (30 minutes for 110TL) all of which are ideal ways to indulge and relax on a summer’s afternoon. Other popular treatments include hand therapies, eye care, facials, scalp massages and de-stressing back treatments.
On the terrace are two treatment rooms, two Jacuzzis (heated to 32 and 38 degrees), a fitness suite, a fresh dip pool, bar, lap pool and a sundeck. But the star of the spa is the view.
“The Bosphorus will always be a highlight of any visit to Istanbul,” said Bulent. “And there is no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside on the terrace of our Open Air Spa.”
The Open Air Spa is open until September seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
