Though you’ve been able to check into the new Marti Istanbul Hotel since its soft opening in July, the hotel’s January 7 grand opening will unveil a top-floor spa and onsite gourmet shop. And like the rest of the 270-room, Zeynep Fadillioglu-designed hotel, these new amenities will flaunt a distinctly Turkish flavor in the heart of Istanbul.
The 8,600-square-foot spa features four hammams — it’s Turkey after all — three saunas and two steam rooms. And that’s just in the locker rooms. You’ll also find three couples’ massage rooms and two single massage rooms in the spa, as well as a facial treatment room and a nail salon. Don’t forget the vitamin bar and the glass-enclosed gym that’ll help you beat that jet lag.
As for the onsite gourmet shop, Gourmet Stop — which you’ll enjoy after your workout and hammam session, of course — it offers delectable treats ranging from organic bread to macarons in a variety of flavors. This little stop will appeal to locals and hotel guests alike with its take-away options and special baskets. From the soup of the day to udon noodles with tofu and egg, you really can’t beat its offerings — especially when it’s situated within your hotel.
