The legend returns: Divan Istanbul
Divan Istanbul, the indispensible element of Istanbul’s fascinating silhouette, reopened on September 1, 2011. The symbol of Taksim, the very house of unforgettable memories and the server of originality and authenticity is returning to retrieve its frequenters.
The 191-room hotel reformed by the aesthetically admirable touch of Thierry W. Despont, holder of Legion d’Honneur and one of the most prominent architects of the world, combines its unique design with traditional Turkish hospitality. The glass work by Robert Du Grenier, the estimable American glass-blower, including the ceiling figures created by the master through the combination of elegance with the fine sense of aesthetics, enchants the audience.
Divan Lokanta, managed by Executive Chef Aydin Demir, serves the almost evanesced delicious tastes of Ottoman Court Cuisine, while Divan Pub and Divan Bar prepare to be the venue of anecdotes to remember. Maromi, on the other hand, is set to be a hip spot of the city for the exotic tastes of the Far-Eastern dishes on its menu.
Divan Patisserie inspires the dessert fans for its tasty cakes, flamboyant macaroons, delicious chocolates, delights and Rokoko, the classic of all times. And Puri Spa, which heals not only the bodies but also the souls, offers to “recreate you on the inside and on the outside” with its semi-Olympic swimming pool, Turkish hammam, sauna, fitness gym, instructed Pilates sessions and massages and cures sessions.
