The Six Senses Spa Kocataş Mansions, housed in a restored 100-year-old stone house, now welcomes guests to its newly launched spa.

Overlooking the Strait of Istanbul, the spa celebrates Turkish heritage with Ottoman artefacts displayed throughout the space and blue-tiled walls inspired by the Blue Mosque.

Spanning 1,500sqm across three levels, there are five treatment rooms, two steam rooms, two saunas and an open-plan relaxation area with a retail boutique.

For the full Turkish experience, there are three additional rooms that offer authentic hammams administered by local experts. The hammam is a traditional Turkish bath that involves using hot water and high humidity to allow the muscles to relax, and leave spa-goers feeling rejuvenated and invigorated.

Six Senses states that the spa completes its vision of combining wellness with an appreciation for Turkish heritage and culture.
