You don’t need to be a Bentley owner, or a motoring fan to enjoy the sensuous curves and craftsmanship of the Bentley Suite, St. Regis Istanbul. Hand-crafted features have been lovingly made by Bentley Motors in Crewe to ensure a truly authentic experience in the curvaceous Bentley Suite, in the intriguing city of Istanbul. This is Europe’s first Bentley Suite following the success of the Bentley Suite in the St. Regis New York. Part of Bentley Motors’ continued collaboration with St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, the suite is inspired by the Continental range of grand tourers. The Bentley Suite is designed for lovers of unparalleled luxury, and it affords breathtaking views of the city and the Bosphorus Strait. Craftsmanship is blended with contemporary design. A number of Bentley bespoke details can be enjoyed throughout. Colours are inspired by the Bosphorus using a Bentley palette. The entrance foyer has mirrored ceilings that reflect the marble floor, which is inset with a design inspired by a Continental wheel. The living room has a bespoke built in curved sofa, crafted from Bentley hide, with signature Bentley diamond upholstery. The sofa is perfectly completed with two Mulsanne bottle coolers, which hold Bentley Lalique champagne flutes, and champagne. Lounge around on this sumptuous sofa, drinking champagne. Play a game of backgammon on the beautiful Bentley custom made backgammon set, which has been crafted from Porpoise and Linen hide with Birds Eye maple veneer. The contemporary wet bar houses a state-of-the-art Naim sound system, and three Breitling Clocks, which display the time in Istanbul, London and New York. You can enjoy lovely vistas from the suite, which are maximised by the floor to ceiling windows, or else you can step out onto the oversized terrace to take in the panoramic views of some of Istanbul’s iconic sights. Look back inside the suite, to the captivating light installation, which is inspired by the sinuous curves of the Nürburgring Racetrack and the Continental’s jewelled headlights. The large bed in the generously sized open plan bedroom is backed by a customised Portland Bentley hide curved headboard. The bed is framed beneath, by a matrix grille inspired carpet, which lies on top of the beautiful marble floor, that runs throughout the room. A rising and rotating TV screen is housed in the bed base, surrounded by a burgundy hide and bright engine spin. The marble flooring continues into the bathroom, where you can relax in a large bath tub. Jewels can be stored in a Bentley wood shop jewellery box, in Tamo Ash and a linen hide interior. Carbon fibre wallpaper is a feature of the separate wash room, and the dry vanity area has Bentley fragrance and is dressed with knurling detail accessories. Smoked glass sliding doors connect the bathroom to the bedroom. Christophe Georges, Director of Product and Marketing, commented: The new Bentley suite at The St. Regis Istanbul marks the next phase of the partnership between Bentley and St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. The emergence of Turkey as a modern luxury destination affords Bentley the opportunity to bring our signature style and contemporary design to a new and discerning audience of travellers who want to experience the soul and sophistication of a gateway city in an environment of exceptional materials and finishes.” The Bentley Suite is full of thoughtful touches, and superb craftsmanship. It is the perfect place to stay in this intriguing city that triggers all of the senses.
