From romantic couples evenings to revitalizing escapes from the day,
The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul offers inspirational alfresco treatments at the Open Air Spa

ISTANBUL, TURKEY — June 05, 2015 — The glittering waters of the Bosphorus, the ancient walls of the old town and the promise of a deeply relaxing alfresco spa treatment…

Summer has arrived and the best place to savor this astonishing view — day or night — is at the chic, sleek terrace of the Open Air Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul.

“The unique panorama and alfresco ambience of our Open Air Spa can be enjoyed at any time of the day, but it is especially magical at night when the spa is lit by candles, covered in rose petals and the night sky is illuminated by the city lights,” says Ruth Acar, Director of Spa.

The Open Air Romance experience at the Spa offers couples exclusive private use of the Open Air Spa allowing them to linger over the iconic view while indulging in The Ritz-Carlton Signature Massage followed by chilled Champagne, fresh strawberries and succulent Turkish delight.

During the day, the Spa’s treatments offer the ideal escape from the frenetic energy of the city. The Spa’s Stressbuster treatment is designed to release tension from the back, neck and shoulders, while the Soothing Foot and Leg Massage are perfect for revitalizing the body after a long journey or a busy day navigating Istanbul’s busy streets.

“Our Open Air Spa is a tranquil haven far above the city — and that puts everything in perspective,” says Ruth Acar. “Add one of our unique treatments to this sense of escape—perhaps a quick revitalizing Express Facial by Valmont—and the restorative effect is unforgettable.”

Healthy and revitalizing detox cocktails add color and refreshment to warm summer days, served at the Open Air Spa which is also accessible for external guests at a charge.
