Ciragan Palace Kempinski, Istanbul

Sometimes the smallest details indicate the most dedicated levels of luxury and service. At the Ciragan Palace, for example, the pool butler will bring you a specially chilled towel.

Istanbul is a vivid, energetic, endless festival for your senses and standing close to it all – on the very edge of the Bosphoru – is Ciragan Palace. The Ciragan Palace is an integral part of Istanbul, yet it is a world apart. Within its refined cloisters you will indeed realise why the ’palace’ portion of its name is so apt. The hotel is on a magnificent scale, yet part of its grandness is the time spent on the details that make all the difference to your stay. A choice of six pillows in your suite. A concierge who will find you the ‘impossible’ tickets. A helicopter waiting to take you on an unforgettable city tour.

The Ciragan Palace will, undoubtedly, become one of the highlights of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Turkey.
