ARMAGGAN Bosporus Suites are located on the European side of the Bosphorus in Ortaköy, a popular cosmopolitan neighbourhood in Istanbul’s thriving Beşiktaş district. The suites occupy a commanding waterfront location, directly adjacent to the Bosphorus Bridge, facing Istanbul’s Beylerbeyi Palace. A constant flow of ferries and leisure boats fills the Suites’ terraces with the unique energy of one of the world’s busiest waterways.
Originally the residence of Anatolia’s Governor General, Beylerbeyi Palace was rebuilt as a summer residence for Sultan Abdülaziz on the Asian shore of the Bosphorus in 1860’s by renowned Ottoman architect Sarkis Balyan. So proud was Balyan of his palatial creation that he built his own yali on the European shore from which to cherish it. His restored yali is now part of the ARMAGGAN Bosporus Suites. Beneath the ever-changing colors of the Bosphorus Bridge, ARMAGGAN Bosporus Suites retain their unique standing on the strait.
Arranged as a lavish waterfront home, ARMAGGAN Bosporus Suites bring together two cornerstones of Turkish culture -hospitality and heritage- and packages them as a gift for international aficionados and cosmopolitan sophisticates alike.
