Design Story of The Spa

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Bosphorus, Istanbul on the hotel’s second level is designed as a grand circular Zen Garden. From the point of reception, a tranquil welcome in neutral materials and textures, guests enter the Spa’s outer circular corridor with Gingko leaf-inspired glass panels. The 3.500 sqm Spa serenely leads its guests into world-class facilities, including treatment rooms, changing rooms, hammam and indoor pool featuring the warm hues of Eucalyptus wood. Guests can relax in various lounge seating sets around the inner most garden feature. The rings of the spa are designed not only to allow for ease of movement through the key areas, but to slow the sense of time as guests make their way around the central garden. The Spa’s tranquil indoor pool, surrounded by lounge seating, features a backlit onyx ceiling cove inspired by Turkish landscapes. From the pool, guests follow a wood-grain corridor, inlaid with geometric patterns, to three separate hammams that each incorporate a layered geometric ceiling cove inspired by the intricate designs of traditional Turkish baths. The mood is elegant and evokes a sense of ease, as guests gather around a central fireplace in comfortable lounger seating. The Fitness Centre creates the perfect environment for exercise and rejuvenation in an open, relaxed atmosphere. A seamless extension of the hotel’s wellness amenities, the venue features a lushly landscaped courtyard as the centerpiece of the design, bringing daylight and nature’s presence to an elevated workout experience.
