Expert Review

Newcomer hotel Four Seasons Istanbul at the Bosphorus occupies a converted 19th-century Ottoman mansion on the banks of its namesake strait. In addition to 170 rooms and suites, the hotel includes indoor and outdoor pools, a full fitness center, and a restaurant serving Italian and Turkish cuisine. The spa contains three hammams - one for men, one for women, and one for couples (a first for Istanbul). White columns grandly surround a swimming pool illuminated by skylights. The traditional Ultra Luxury Turkish Bath is conducted in private and the therapist tells the spa-goer about all the steps beforehand. The treatment starts in a cool room, then progresses to a warmer one where the therapist performs a rigorous scrub with a kese (loofah) and then applies a blanket of nourishing bubbles. Next the guest pauses at the qurna (washbowl) for hair washing and a head massage before returning to the cool room to decompress.
