Turkish Indulgence

    No Turkish experience is complete without visiting a traditional bath. While many luxury hotels attempt to provide the Turkish bath experience, the hammams at the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Bosphorus are the real thing. The 22,605 square-foot spa blends ancient bath traditions such as the use of attar (essences) of rose, pine, sandalwood, and lemon with modern spa technology like underwater music in a sky-lit, pillared pool. The hotel occupies a former 19th-century Ottoman palace with immaculately landscaped gardens, a heated outdoor pool, and a dock that offers private boat access for guests traveling between the hotel at Bosphorus and its sister location at Sultanahmet. Suites start at $1,000 per night, and its grand Atik Pasha Suite is $18,000 per night. (90.212.381.40.00, www.fourseasons.com/bosphorus)
