The fusion of traditional and contemporary design elements pervades the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul, a 19th-century palace overlooking the famous Bosphorus River. A chic spa with hammams, a traditional Turkish bath, dining venues, and swimming pools, plus the Ottoman decor add to the allure of this stylish property. The 23,000-square-foot spa offers 10 treatment rooms, including a spa suite for two, and a spa menu combining Near Eastern rituals with Western techniques. There are also steam rooms, saunas, and a sky-lit indoor pool.
