Summer Hotspots: The Terrace at the Park Hyatt Istanbul- Maçka Palas

July 16, 2009 By: Mary Winston Nicklin


On a recent visit to the Park Hyatt Istanbul-Maçka Palas, we paused for a fresh lemonade at The Terrace, the outdoor eating space connected to the hotel's signature restaurant, The Prime. Since its official opening on June 9th, The Terrace has drawn quite the crowd, and is increasingly a hotspot for locals in addition to the hotel's well-heeled clientele. Private cabanas face the infinity pool, landscaped with wild bamboo and lit by candles by night. Under an awning, high bar tables and cushioned lounge chairs are an inviting place to relax for lunch or a cocktail. The menu is moderately priced and features items like salads, gourmet burgers, oysters, and lobster rolls. At night, The Terrace comes alive with music. The hotel itself debuted last November to much fanfare and celebration in the fashionable district of Nisantasi (where upscale designer boutiques lure tanned "Nisantasettes" on shopping sprees).
