About Richmond Nua Wellness Spa
Turkey's only destination spa, Richmond Nua is located on the shores of Lake Sapanca in northwestern Turkey. The 193,997-square-foot (18,023 square meters) property's six-story main building houses most 131 rooms and suites as well as a full-service spa and three restaurants serving a cornucopia of cuisines. The 29,063-square-foot (2,700 square meters) spa includes a broad selection of baths and wet areas, including an ice grotto, a Rasul chamber, and, of course, a traditional Turkish hammam. No one younger than 14 allowed on-property.
Lovers of the outdoors should plan to stay here in summer. Open-air massage cabanas, a heated outdoor pool, and an al fresco poolside restaurant with lake views are among the resort's warm-weather facilities. Lake Sapanca is open from June to September for swimming and water sports. The summer season is also the best time for a day trip to Istanbul, Turkey's most populous city, which is approximately 75 minutes from the property by car.
