JW Marriott Turkey Hotel Istanbul Marmara Sea is now open on a stretch of coast facing the Marmara Sea in Turkey.
The hotel will endeavour to give guests a transformative stay focusing on nourishing the mind, body and spirit.
A serene location
Located in Istanbul’s serene Atakoy district, JW Marriott Hotel Istanbul Marmara Sea places guests just a short drive from the metropolis of Istanbul and close to sites such as Hagia Sophia. Every aspect of the hotel experience is designed with wellbeing in mind.
For the design of this property, KCA International drew inspiration from the aesthetics of its location. Design details include a flying carpet art installation paying homage to traditional Turkish crafts and bespoke lighting designed by artist Khuan Chew as a modern interpretation of Turkish culture.

“JW Marriott Turkey Hotel Istanbul Marmara Sea embodies this holistic approach to the guest experience from its JW Garden where organic herbs are harvested for use by the culinary team, to its robust fitness and wellness classes and introspective, intentional design. We know these principles will be the perfect complement to this breathtaking location.”
