We have driven major refurbishment projects including the creation of the fashionable Bleu Lounge & Grill, and the transformation of the Club Lounge into one of the most exclusive comfort zones in the hotel. Our Club Lounge guests are also very welcome to use our two convertible The Ritz-Carlton cars which we introduced recently. They are perfect for exploring the city or for getting to business meetings. The hotel’s Spa has been renovated and features the only ‘Couples Hammam Suite’ which enables its guests to share an authentic memory of Turkey. The hotel also boasts the first open-air spa in the city with three contemporary Jacuzzis, a stylish sleek sunbathing terrace, two massage rooms and a pool.
At Atelier Real Food, the open kitchen entices with its handmade French Rotisserie and all dishes use fresh local seasonal ingredients. The restaurant enjoys an indulgent ‘Winter Garden’ terrace for lovers of alfresco dining, a private chef’s table for those seeking dining exclusivity and a showcase cellar with 150 local and international wines.
Bleu Lounge & Grill features a Mediterraneaninspired menu, and an innovative range of signature lab cocktails, with live music and DJ performances five times a week. The Lobby Lounge has been transformed into ‘Atelier Lounge’, a chic but stylish place to meet, eat and drink, offering bite-sized, Mediterraneaninspired, upscale contemporary Turkish cuisine. .
By empowering our Ladies and Gentlemen, we enable them to take ownership of the entire well-being of our guests, not only those aspects that fall within the confines of their specific job scope. If a guest experiences a problem, they can expect to have their problem resolved immediately by the first Lady or Gentleman they encounter regardless of their department or job title. This is the kind of service that sets The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul apart from the many competitors in the industry.
