    Elevated above the retreat, and blending into the natural landscape, Six Senses Spa Kocataş Mansions, Istanbul is set in a beautifully restored 100-year-old stone house. Using natural materials from the original setting, the 1,500 square-metre three-level spa has been constructed with sensitivity to the local environment and incorporating local cultural references which pay homage to the city’s past.

    Within the calm oasis away from the city, there are five treatment rooms, three hammams, two steam rooms, two saunas, an open-plan relaxation area and retail boutique, along with a Holistic Anti-Aging Centre, Pilates Studio, Alchemy Bar, and Nail Bar. A locally inspired, multi-layered mix of treatments are on offer including massages, facials, rituals, and hair, body, and beauty treatments. In addition, the spa has partnered with French skincare specialist Biologique Recherche to supply treatments and Subtle Energies for ayurvedic aromatherapy rituals.

    “Six Senses Spa Kocataş Mansions, Istanbul is a magical place for guests and members alike,” said Spa Director Sündüz Ediz Kibar. “After months of anticipation, we have opened our doors, completing the resort’s identity. Our passionate team will be working to create #OutOfTheOrdinary guest experiences and immersive wellness programming and retreats.”

    Inspired by the tiles of the Blue Mosque, the walls of treatment rooms are designed with brilliant blue tiles to celebrate Turkish culture, and completed with red line details to give the walls a natural, authentic, and smooth finish. The blue accents throughout the design also reflect and reference the blue hues of the Bosphorus which provides the spa with both view and inspiration.

    Six Senses Kocataş Mansions, Istanbul marks a new milestone for the brand as it combines the Six Senses ethos of sustainability, wellness and local sensitivity with Turkish heritage and culture in everything it does, right down to the 100 per cent sustainable uniforms for the spa hosts. The resort has partnered with local designers EzraTuba, who champion sustainable, circular, and ethical fashion in Turkey.
