Design Influences

Rooms feature gold and copper hues combined with layers of colours, while wall panels feature intricate works of cobalt blue Anatolian ceramic. Luxurious velvet and silk fabrics serve as headboards in all rooms, reflecting both the air and earth in their design.  

Artistic Accents

Every room is beautifully decorated with contemporary pieces from Turkish artists, including a famed artwork "At Nağme" by Süleyman Saim Tekcan, a precious representative of Turkish Gravure Art, as well as glazed replicas of ancient coins from the reign of Selim III, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire.  

Meeting spaces were re-imagined by well-known Turkish architect, Hakan Yürüoğlu.  The most dramatic redesign can be found in The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom. Here a staggered wall panelling reflects a contemporary take on Bosphorus’ waves, while a lilac colouring in the flooring and majestic crystal chandeliers take inspiration from the indigenous flowers of Istanbul.
