With so many large chain hotels in Dubai, we can’t be blamed for wanting somewhere a little different to stay when we escape from the city. We want somewhere that is unique, comfortable, and fashionable – and where the service is both personal and attentive.
Lush Hotel in Istanbul ticks all those boxes. The city is just a 4.5 hour flight from Dubai – and the hotel is centrally located on Taksim Square, which is walking distance from Istikhal Street (the shopper’s haven) and the stunning Dolmabache Palace on the Bosphorous.
Each of the 44 rooms is styled individually. Depending on your tastes, you could opt a room from the distinct Ottoman style with elegant furniture – or one with a modern vibe and contemporary décor. Regardless of style, each room boasts wooden floors, exposed brick walls, textured wallpaper, and street scene murals.
After a tiring day exploring the city, guests can relax with pure Turkish bed sheets, luxurious L’Occitane toiletries, fluffy bathrobes, and indulgent rain showers. For some serious pampering, you should head to the top floor for a massage in the hotel’s spa – or, if you have a little more energy, a workout in the modern gym.
When it comes to eating and drinking, the uber-trendy cafe/bar takes up the entire lower floor and extends into outdoor seating. And Lush’s famous Turkish breakfast is not to be missed, with a mixture of international and local cuisine served by friendly and attentive staff. There are few better ways to start the day!
