Jumeirah to Operate Istanbul's Pera Palace Hotel

Big news from Jumeirah today, as the company continues to expand its portfolio: Today, the Group signed a management agreement with Demsa Group, a Turkish retail trade company, to operate the iconic Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey. Jumeirah will assume management of the luxury museum hotel from May 1 and the property will be known as Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah.
 
Located in the Beyoğlu district of Istanbul, close to the Golden Horn, the Bosphorus and the airport, the hotel is the oldest established luxury hotel in Istanbul: It originally opened in 1892 as the destination for travelers on the Orient-Express.
 
The main restaurant, Agatha, is named after the famous British crime writer Agatha Christie and serves French, Italian and Turkish specialities, paying tribute to the three major stops of the former luxury train. The Orient Bar is a popular meeting-point for the high society of Istanbul, as are the Kubbeli Saloon and Tea Lounge, Patisserie de Pera and Orient Terrace in summer.
 
The addition of Pera Palace Hotel brings Jumeirah's number of luxury hotels, resorts and residences around the world to 19. From the start of 2011 to the end of 2012, the Group will have more than doubled the number of hotels it manages and almost quadrupled the number of countries in which it operates. In the coming six months, Jumeirah expects to open Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa in Mallorca, Spain; Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Hotel in Baku, Azerbaijan; Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel and Spa, Kuwait; and Jumeirah Creekside in Dubai, UAE.
