Travellers to Istanbul can now find Shangri La. Located on the site of a former 1930s tobacco warehouse, right on the water on the European side of the Bosphorus Strait and overlooking the domes and minarets Istanbul is famous for, The Shangri-La's second foray into Europe is enchanting.

The warehouse's carefully restored six-storey Neo-Classical facade and two ancient sycamore trees in the courtyard are a nod to the past while inside a mix of European, Asian and Turkish design creates an opulent feel (think Bohemian chandeliers, Turkish marble and more than 1000 pieces of European and Asian art).

Couples will love:

The Shangri La Suite with three private terraces offering stunning Old City and Bosphorus vistas, and the CHI spa with indulgent private spa suites and hammam.
