Pearl of Bosphorus opens in Istanbul

October 7, 2019 - Treat your loved one(s) to one of the most historically rich cities in the world. Stretch out in the generously proportioned guest rooms and suites at the beautifully restored Ottoman-era Six Senses Kocataş Mansions.

Six Senses Kocataş Mansions, which also incorporates next-door Sait Paşa Mansion, is located in the prosperous Sariyer district of Istanbul’s European side, famous for its “Pearls of Bosphorus” waterfront properties. The urban resort recreates historic architectural features and artifacts from the site’s former 19th century Kocataş Mansions, which were devastated in a fire years ago, paying homage to its original footprint.

Opt for one of the Bosphorus Rooms for daydreamy views over the Strait, and ceilings up to 4.7 meters (15.41 feet). The en-suite bathrooms, complete with beautiful marble tiles, create an atmosphere evocative of heritage Turkish Baths. All rooms have a flat-panel television, iPad, WiFi and a Nespresso machine. The Bosphorus Suites add a separate seating area and living room for entertaining, with oriental touches adding authenticity, and original timber flooring and soft hued tones complementing the original architectural style. Tall windows looking out to the Bosphorus emphasize the high ceilings of the heritage mansions.

The quirky Sky Loft on the top floor of Sait Pasa Mansion has windows in the ceiling to gaze up to the stars. The one of a kind Cistern Suite transforms an original cistern to a brilliant oval bathroom, and offers a spacious seating area on the lower floor and a king bed upstairs. The two-bedroom Kocatas Mansion suite is the most spacious and gracious of all; the perfect palace to live the good life and socialize in style.

In addition to in-room dining, guests will be invited to sample the specialty menu at the Toro Latin GastroBar. With its elegant décor styled by the restaurateur Richard Sandoval, Toro is inspired by Pan-Latin and Asian cuisines, featuring cocktails shaken or stirred by a resident mixologist. The all-day Kahve café is located in a bohemian-style gilded hall offering up sweet and sticky pastries and refreshing Bosphorus views in turn. An additional restaurant featuring high-end cuisine from Istanbul’s best-loved chef Mehmet Gürs will be open in mid-2020.

As with all Six Senses properties, GEMs (Guest Experience Makers) will be on hand to help you relax and reconnect, while enjoying the exciting attractions of the picturesque Sariyer district, sea and city. A private boat moored in front of the property will be available for sightseeing trips and excursions.

The historic city center of Istanbul can be reached by boat in around 60 minutes, and the Istanbul New Airport, the largest hub in the world, is a 40-minute drive by private vehicle provided by the hotel. The stately heritage mansions and Toro Latin GastroBar are scheduled to open in November 2019, with more facilities to be added by next Spring.
