Shangri-La Hotel IstanbulWe’re incredibly excited about the May debut of the Shangri-La Hotel Bosphorus in Istanbul. (See our preview in Luxury Travel Advisor’s February issue.) A killer location, the city’s largest guest rooms, and Shangri-La-style pampering make for a positively swank guest experience in this happening destination.

Housed in a former tobacco warehouse on the banks of the Bosphorus, the Shangri-La will open as part of the Preview program from luxury travel network Virtuoso. (Sister property Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto was the first for the brand to debut with Preview.) Clients who reserve the hotel through a Virtuoso travel advisor will receive a bunch of complimentary benefits, including an upgrade at time of booking; daily breakfast; food & beverage and spa credit; and traditional Welcome Shangri-La tea.
