The St Regis Ä°stanbul hotel has dĂŠbuted a Bentley suite, named for the car brand, its interior inspired by the current Continental GT model.
A collaboration with St Regis Hotels & Resorts, the suite features a balcony overlooking MaĂ§ka Park with views of the Bosphorus and the city. There are floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing Ä°stanbul’s sights.
Bentley design cues are present in the living room, bedroom, the one and a half baths, the dressing room and powder room.
The entrance’s mirrored ceiling reflects the marble floor, inset with a Continental GT wheel-inspired design. The living area’s veneer walls are meant to evoke the Continental’s interior, and the living room’s sofa’s leather is shared with the car’s. Bentley’s diamond upholstery is present on the sofas, which have two champagne bottle coolers, while the light installation evokes the Continental’s jewelled headlights. The curves of the NĂźrburgring race track are suggested in the way the rug has been cut, and both the living area and bedroom rugs capture the Bentley grille in abstract form.
The wet bar, with olive ash, is inspired by the Bentley’s dashboard, and the bar doors reveal three Breitling clocks. The humidor in the bar set-up has been hand-crafted in Bentley’s own wood shop. Items from the Bentley home collection feature throughout the suite, including the chaise in the bedroom.
The work desk sits alongside a 40-inch pop-up television, while the bed base, tailor-made from burgundy hide and bright engine spin, also conveys the lines of the Bentley Continental GT’s interior. Controls for the room are accessed via a touch panel and Ipad.
The master bathroom has a dual-basin sink, glass-enclosed rainforest shower, and free-standing glass-enclosed bathtub. There is a 19-inch mirror TV and an adjacent dressing room. The suite also has an additional full bathroom and powder room.
Naim Audio equipment, which is available on the Bentley as an option, appears throughout, with the SuperUniti player in the living room, and the Mu-so wireless system in the bedroom.
The new hotel has been designed by Emre Arolat in the art-dĂŠco style. Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant and the Iridium Spa also appear at the new property.
