Six Senses Expands Portfolio to Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul

Six Senses has expanded its portfolio of luxury hotels, resorts and spas to Istanbul, Turkey.

The Six Senses Kocataş Mansions, which also incorporates the Sait Paşa Mansion next-door, is located in the prosperous Sariyer district of Istanbul’s European side, famous for its “Pearls of Bosphorus” waterfront properties.

The urban resort recreates historic architectural features and artifacts from the site’s former 19th century Kocataş Mansions, which were devastated in a fire years ago, paying homage to its original footprint.

The former mansion was owned by and named after Ottoman Minister of Justice Necmettin Molla Kocataş, owner of Kocataş Water.

The site enjoys far-reaching views over the Bosphorus as it begins its last curve towards the Black Sea. This iconic Strait has been sailed since the Roman era and today marks one of the world’s most strategic waterways, separating Europe and Asia.

The 45 guest rooms and suites are divided between the two stately three-level heritage mansions.

In addition to a variety of F&B outlets, lounges, event spaces, a gallery and a gym, the property has its own boat which guests can use for sightseeing and excursions.

“We are very happy to partner with the Alfardan Group for this historic project,” said Chief Executive Officer, Neil Jacobs. “Ideally situated in the city’s prosperous northernmost district with its vibrant outdoor cafés and garden areas, this remains truly the best spot for a Six Senses hotel in Istanbul. It will appeal to local residents in search of an urban wellness fix and great dining experiences, and also to international travelers who wish to explore the city.”

The historic city center of Istanbul is a short boat ride away and the Istanbul New Airport, one of the largest hubs in the world, is a 40-minute drive.

The stately heritage mansions are scheduled to open in November 2019, with more facilities to be added by next Spring.

Omar Alfardan, president and CEO of Alfardan Group, said, “The partnership between Alfardan Group and Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas proves to be timely and strategic, as Turkey continues to emerge as a highly popular destination in the region. Six Senses Kocataş Mansions is a tribute to history and culture, and it represents our unique take on hospitality and urban hotel living which will be clearly reflected in its incredible designs and state-of-the-art facilities.”
