Following the success of Vakko Hotel & Residence Istanbul, which offers personalized experiences in the heart of Nişantaşı, the hub of fashion, culture, art, and social life in Istanbul, Vakko is now embarking on its second hotel venture, the Sumahan on the Water, located in one of the most beautiful spots along the Bosphorus.

Transformed from a 19th-century Ottoman factory in Çengelköy, distinguished by its stone walls, arched windows, and its private pier right on the edge of the Bosphorus, Sumahan on the Water catches attention as a distinctive structure. It will soon open its doors as Vakko Hotel & Residence Sumahan. Guests in this unique location will also enjoy the pleasurable moments offered by Vakko L'Atelier.

"Realizing Our Dream"

Cem Hakko, Chairman of Vakko's Board of Directors, stated, "With Vakko Hotel & Residence Sumahan, we are realizing another dream. We are confident that this magnificent building, overlooking all the beauties of the Bosphorus, will leave unforgettable memories in the minds of those who visit and stay in Istanbul. Therefore, we see this place not only as our second hotel but as a gift that adds value to Istanbul."

Designed by French architects who also contributed to the Vakko Hotel Residence Nişantaşı project, the hotel will stay true to the architectural DNA and original textures of the structure. It will offer 12 comfortable living spaces with an unparalleled view of the Bosphorus, providing a special club system for guests who wish to stay for short or extended periods, along with the privileges of the Vakko world. Areas within the hotel, such as Vakko L’Atelier, Club Privee, and Bistro Bar, will offer the elegance synonymous with Vakko.

Blending the romance of the past with the timeless Vakko style and functional, modern luxuries, the Vakko Hotel & Residence Sumahan is set to open its doors to guests in May 2024 as a truly special hotel, redesigned by Vakko, catering to those who appreciate tranquility within the city but away from its chaos.
