A Luxury Spa That Sets New Standards
By Liz Ritter, Executive Editor |
Luxury hotel brand The Edition has hit Europe in the Turkish city of Istanbul, and, like its U.S. counterpart, it's opening to rave reviews. The much-anticipated hot spot blends contemporary touches with time-tested elements of Turkish culture-creating an impressive display of design that's luxurious, exclusive and an all-around elegant experience.
And it doesn't stop at the spa. Occupying three floors, the 19,400 square-foot space offers hammam experiences with private scrub rooms, a snow cabin, a lavish mirrored glass tile swimming pool with brown fiberglass walls, as well as ten treatment rooms and a private spa suite.
Signature Treatment: The Turkish Indulgence is an invigorating body ritual that begins in the Hammam with warming steam followed by a stimulating body scrub using a traditional kese bath mitt and olive soap. A body mask of Oshadi Clay or restorative Marine Mud is then smoothed onto the skin and wrapped in linens, all followed by an aromatherapy massage.
