Bentley Suite at The St. Regis Istanbul
The Bentley Suite at The St. Regis Istanbul captivates all luxury car enthusiasts. Taking cues from the seductive curves of the Bentley Continental, the 125 square metres one-bedroom suite welcomes guests with an entry vestibule featuring mirrored ceilings and inset marble floors that recall the interior of a car wheel and lead to the living room.
A captivating light installation based on the car's headlights and the sinuous lines of the Nuremberg Racetrack, illuminates the interior. At the same time, an abstract wool-and-silk carpet inspired by the Continental’s front grille captures the movement inherent to the original design and frames a built-in sofa lounge. Crafted from Bentley leather, it features quilted diamond upholstery and integrated Mulsanne champagne coolers, and perfectly mimics the strong curvilinear architecture of both the suite and the Continental.
The design invites guests to enjoy a movie on the 55-inch Samsung LED television while sipping a beverage from the wet bar. Inspired by a Bentley dashboard, the bar’s doors open to reveal Breitling clocks and a full bar set-up incorporating a Humidor specially crafted in the Bentley woodshop.
Connected to the bedroom by a glass door, the master bathroom extends the bespoke experience. Its marble book-matched slabs create a dramatic pattern that surrounds a dual-basin sink, glass-enclosed rainforest shower, and freestanding bathtub. A 19-inch mirror television and guests’ choice of upgraded bath amenities further elevate the restorative retreat, while an adjacent dressing area ensures privacy.
