There is a reason Istanbul was last year’s most visited city in the world. To experience the city is a little bit like falling in love: its architecture sweeps you off your feet; its baklava, with thin layers of pistachio and syrup, is enough to set pulses racing; its story of empire, culture and glass-making unfolds before you like a love letter. 

Creating a new chapter in the historical Tersane district, Turkish luxury group Rixos Hotels is opening its new flagship hotel resort later this month. Set along the tranquil Golden Horn harbour, The Rixos Tersane Istanbul hotel resort is part of a development transforming the Ottoman naval shipyards and turning them into the beating heart of the city once again.

The latest venture for Rixos Hotels offers luxury facilities and exceptional service

‘Rixos Tersane Istanbul embodies the city’s cosmopolitan appeal,’ says Murat Alpman, senior vice president of sales & marketing at Rixos. ‘This development marks a brand new concept and offers guests an unforgettable experience in a vibrant city location with access to superb luxury facilities, exceptional service, signature hospitality, gastronomy and world-class entertainment.’

The interior designs nods to the hotel’s nautical heritage

Guests are greeted by a spacious lobby with suspended ornamental boats decorating the ceiling in a nod to the area and its nautical heritage. With 432 expertly designed rooms and 67 suites, the majority of which have their own outdoor terraces, the resort combines unparalleled comfort with Rixos’ signature stylish decor.

The hotel’s Cigar Lounge is the only one of its kind in the city, expertly pairing whiskey, cognac, bourbon, brandy and wine with sharing plates and gourmet light bites. The hotel also features a special tasting corner where guests can experience both local and international wines with a selection of cooked meats and cheeses and an open kitchen with Italian and Asian cuisine on offer. 

With an outdoor heated pool and an exclusive sports club with expert trainers, The Rixos Tersane is the ultimate wellness retreat

From international gastronomy to world-class facilities, guests can expect live music experiences, an exclusive sports club with expert trainers, and an outdoor heated pool, while children have access to masterclasses in DJing, ceramics and sports activities.

Adding a new chapter to Istanbul’s vibrant neighbourhood, Rixos Tersane Istanbul is bringing the 600-year-old dockyard area back to life, transforming it into your next luxury getaway and rekindling our love for this magnificent city.
