For the ideal retreat during the Eid holiday, look no further than Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul. This former Ottoman palace turned hotel, located on the shores of Istanbul’s Bosphorus Strait, is offering a special Eid holiday retreat that gives guests the chance to live like the sultans once did.
Each morning during their four-night stay in a Superior Sea View room, guests can dine on rare delicacies from the extravagant breakfast buffet at Laledan Restaurant. One’s visit to Istanbul will offer more than one can do in a visit, as the city has a vast array of historic sites, coup de cœur mosques and palaces, including the hidden gems of Istanbul, such as the Blue Mosque or the Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum.
From perusing the over 4,000 shops of the historic Grand Bazaar, or Kapalı Çarşı, which has been open since 1461, to trendy, upscale shopping in Nişantaşı on Istanbul’s European side, or antiquing in the artsy neighbourhood of Çukurcuma, all of the best shopping in Istanbul is easily accessible from Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul’s convenient location near the centre of the city. Hip shopping malls like Kanyon or İstinye Park, and the Champs-Élysées of the city, Bağdat Street, which is located on the Anatolian side, also deserve a mention. Get ready to shop until you drop!
For respite from a long day of shopping or an unforgettable boat ride along the Bosphorus, a Turkish bath “Hamam” treatment at the Sanitas Spa, which is located at the hotel building, is ideal. A dinner right on the Bosphorus with a view of the Bosphorus Bridge and the Old City at the al fresco Bosphorus Grill is a true summer feast, with a delicious open buffet serving fresh homemade pasta, mezzes, salads, a rich variety of grilled meat, fish and sweets. All of the ingredients for the buffet items are from Turkey and hand-selected by Turkish Executive Chef Sezai Erdoğan.
