Could Just Live Inside

Driving a Bentley is a luxury, owning a Bentley is bloody good luck. Now, sleeping in one is a lovely possibility at the all-new Bentley Suite at the St. Regis in Istanbul. The seven-floor hotel, which was designed by Turkish architect Emre Arolat, occupies a corner plot in the upscale Nişantaşi district on the European side of Istanbul. The four signature suites, each on a different floor, are set on this corner and have private balconies with views of the green stretches of Maçka Park and the Bosphorous. Chances are, you won’t have the time or inclination to peep at what lies outside.

Many of the furnishings directly echo the car’s interior. The quilted pattern of the leather sofas look and feel like the rear seat of the car. Things get evermore dramatic with the pull-down coolers that are fixed into the sofas. Here, a pair of flutes and champagne await the guests. The sideboard is in olive ash, anthracite and claret, and is inset with three Breitling clocks which keep time across Istanbul, Crewe (where Bentleys are manufactured) and New York. “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,” Christophe Georges, director of product and marketing at Bentley, points out.

The Bentley suite that comprises a private foyer, a powder room, an open plan living area, a bedroom, a sizeable bathroom and a large closet costs £3,700 a night, and in case you end up stayng here for a full month, you’d have shelled out the price of a brand new Continental GT. Are you ready to book a ride in this one?
