Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts entered into an agreement with Turkish developer Garanti Koza to manage Swissôtel KozaPark Istanbul, a new property being developed in the city's Esenyurt district. Slated to open in 2019, the project will grow Swissôtel's footprint in one of Europe's leading travel markets, while also strengthening FRHI's presence in Istanbul, a city that includes the renovated Swissôtel The Bosphorus, newly opened Raffles Istanbul, and the upcoming Fairmont Quasar, Istanbul, which is currently in development and is expected to open in late 2016.
Swissôtel KozaPark Istanbul will have 160 guestrooms, multiple food and beverage options and access to meeting spaces, including a ballroom.
In addition to an indoor and outdoor rooftop pool the hotel will have a spa facility. The brand's Pürovel Spa & Sport will have Alpine-inspired treatments, exercise classes and fitness equipment. The project will also introduce the first branded Swissôtel Residences in Istanbul, offering 450 one-, two- and three-bedroom luxury residences.
The Swissôtel will be part of KozaPark, a new residential, retail, and entertainment destination at the north border of the Esenyurt district.
