Tucked away in Turkey’s Marmara Sea lies the newly announced Viceroy Princes’ Islands Istanbul, a modern resort located on the island of Büyükada. Upon completion in August, Viceroy Hotel Group will open the doors to its first property in Turkey, inviting guests to experience an ancient era of Ottoman royalty. Viceroy Princes’ Islands Istanbul boasts a total of 77 luxury guest rooms, suites and serviced residences, a traditional and restored Ottoman Grand Mansion and a “Yali” seafront mansion, extensive gardens and a private cove.

The resort’s registered cultural heritage Grand Mansion has been fully restored to its former grandeur by local artisan craftsmen. The 1,926 square metre mansion includes a baroque entryway, six suites, a private pool, numerous social spaces for private dining and entertaining, and an expansive terrace surrounded by sweeping sea views and the distant city lights ofIstanbul.

Viceroy Princes’ Islands Istanbul is exclusively accessed through the resort’s private pier. With no motor vehicles on the island, guests are encouraged to celebrate their curiosity and roam by bicycle, phaeton (horse carriage) or foot, making for a truly serene escape from the bustle of daily life. A short boat ride from the ports of the city, travellers can easily venture into Istanbuland explore by streetcar, taking in the scenery and culture of the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Galata Tower and more.

“Viceroy Hotel Group is thrilled to enter Turkey with this remarkable project,” said Bill Walshe, CEO. “The rich history of Büyükada gives Viceroy Princes’ Islands Istanbul a true sense of place through its exciting blend of antiquity, modernity, tradition, and an infusion of the Viceroy vibe.”
