The Mardan Palace : Ultimate Luxury
If you are looking for an ultra-luxury hotel where to spend your next vacation, the Mardan Palace is regarded as one of the most luxurious resort in the Mediterranean. Built by Azerbaijani businessman Telman Ismailov at a cost of over $1.5 billion, the Mardan Palace opened in May 2009 and was already attended by Richard Gere, Tom Jones and Mariah Carey.
Situated on the shores of the Turkish Riviera in the Lara region occupying a total area of 180,000 m2, the Mardan Palace Antalya marks a long return to the days of experiential luxury, paying homage to the elegance of an enchanting past by recreating an extraordinary palatial architecture of ancient ottoman days. An awe inspiring world where the royal splendour of illustrious empires meets today’s modern luxuries.
The Mardan Palace has been designed by a renowned international interior designer with the intention to reflect the famous trademarks of the city of Istanbul. For instance, the Dolmabahce Palace lobby features a 21 m high ceiling and 2 800 sqm lobby surface.
The hotel comprises a total of 560 rooms and suites that have been designed and appointed to pamper the most demanding guest – each room features spectacular and discreet views over either the Taurus Mountains, the Da Vinci Bridge that spans the vast landscaped swimming pool or a partial view of the Mediterranean Sea. Moreover, the Mardan Palace perfectly combines royal splendour with modern luxuries. Indeed, all rooms are fully equipped with interactive multi-media systems, flat screen TV, wireless internet access, remote control (Light and AC) and Hermès toiletries – nothing less than you would expect from the epitome of modern comfort and luxury.
With more than 500,000 crystals, 23,000 square meters of Italian marble and 560 rooms, including two Royal Suites with private pool, the Mardan Palace, is currently the most expensive hotel in Europe.
