The spice-scented bazaars of Istanbul have enraptured you. For long moments, you have lost yourself in the intricate patterns gracing the soaring dome of Hagia Sophia. With the morning\'s memories glowing in your mind, you return to the embrace of Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul.
You are greeted, as always, by warm and attentive service. The feeling of enchanting hospitality continues when you open the door to your immaculate suite. The hotel, ideally located in the financial and entertainment district of Besiktas, yields breathtaking views of the Bosphorus Strait. As you step onto your private terrace, you are dazzled by the Strait\'s deep blue waters, a living line between two continents.
The promise of a delectable lunch eventually tempts you downstairs. Tantalizing aromas lead you to Shang Palace, the culinary pride of Shangri-La. An array of traditional Cantonese delicacies, exquisitely prepared, are sweet and savoury on your palate.
Invigorated by the meal, you head out to explore nearby attractions. A short walk away is Dolmabahce Palace, where chandelier-accented rooms built for Ottoman sultans astonish you with their opulence. The afternoon also holds luxuries of a more modern kind at the upscale boutiques of Nisantasi.
A memorable day like this is made perfect by a restful ending. On your return to the hotel, you check into CHI, The Spa. The soothing hands of a skilled therapist melt away each knot in your body, leaving a sensation of deep relaxation.
This blissful massage is followed by another treat you have been anticipating: a hammam, or Turkish bath. Enveloped in cleansing heat, you lie back with a sigh as wisps of steam caress you. Thoughts of your upcoming adventures entice, but for now, you\'re grateful to linger in this place of complete serenity.
This is the sanctuary you\'ve been seeking. This is Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul.
