Six Senses offers mansion takeovers in Istanbul

Six Senses Kocatas Mansions

Away from the masses, in the leafy Sariyer district of Istanbul’s European side, Six Senses Kocatas Mansions features two brand new restaurants, far-reaching views over the Bosphorus and the option to take over a whole floor or entire mansion.

With its high ceilings, gracious Ottoman-era styling and primary location in a green area, lush with beautiful laurel trees, the "Pearl of Bosphorus" Six Senses Kocatas Mansions will be offering locals and tourists an urban oasis from July 30, 2020.

This is a boutique hotel that has super-sized on space with its airy guestrooms and suites and two new restaurants showcasing local and international cuisine.

Styled by the restaurateur Richard Sandoval, Toro is a Pan-Latin and Asian Gastro Bar serving high-end Pan-South American and Asian cuisines. Defne is located in an old Ottoman cistern that has been converted into a restaurant by a team of skillful restorationists. The creative menu is inspired by the Eat With Six Senses philosophy of local, seasonable and delicious dishes. Both make a wonderful spot for lunch, which can also be served outdoors in the courtyard, an intimate dinner or long overdue celebration.

Stay more than one night and a visit to Old Istanbul is a must. With its abundant treasures, this peerless cultural melting pot of a city has survived since the dawn of history. It soon becomes clear that our lives are just a tiny chapter in the history of civilisation that dates back for millennia.

If you’re looking to stay before the end of the year, the special Reopening Offer rates are worth a look, and there’s a complimentary upgrade to a Bosphorus view for the whole of August.
