Therapia Spa
With panoramic views across the Bosphorus from its floor-to-ceiling windows, the Therapia Spa is the ideal place in which to relax. The spa offers exclusive therapies, including the latest developments, alongside centuries-old spa rituals. A state-of-the-art fitness centre is provided for those wanting a more active experience while the relaxation lounge is the perfect place for recovering after a treatment.

Caudalie Spa
This haven of relaxation in Hôtel Les Ottomans, offers an unusual range of treatments. Grapes are central to Caudalie Spa’s menu: try the moisturising honey and wine wrap, a hydro-massage with vine extract, or the 100% Grape Ritual, with a Cabernet or Merlot scrub followed by a massage. Wear the sandals provided all day, as they gently massage the soles of your feet.
