ESPA partnered with the groundbreaking EDITION Brand to launch ESPA at The Istanbul EDITION. Opened in May 2011, the spa is based in the heart of one of Europe’s most vibrant cities, Istanbul. It combines design influences drawn from Turkish tradition and local customs resulting in a breathtaking spa.
Spread over three floors, the 1800 sqm spa is truly spectacular with dark sumptuous lighting throughout, rich metallic woods and embossed bronze floors softened by upholstered walls. ESPA worked closely with Inge Moore from HBA London to design the spa. Inspiration came from the traditional Hammam, particularly focusing on the light shafts that penetrate through a series of faceted cut out’s in the dome.
The spa boasts ten spectacular multi-functional treatment rooms with sculptured natural stone sinks and striking Lava stone in the showers, a Private Spa Suite and Thermal Suite featuring a Rock Sauna, Steam Room, Snow Cabin, Experience Shower, Ice Fountain as well as the Turkish Hammam with opulent chocolate brown marble and cast bronze sinks. A 16 metre swimming pool, vitality pool with air and water massage jets, heated loungers, state-of-the- art fitness studio and Library Spa Café complete this magnificent ESPA spa.
