A gift from the heart
The brightest of welcomes awaits you in Istanbul

You’ll find the newest member of our family on the European side of the Bosphorus Strait, near the Dolmabahce Palace, bringing a genuine sense of Asian warmth and hospitality to this historic place. To celebrate the occasion, on 14 May 2013, heartfelt messages of goodwill from the Shangri-La family and Golden Circle members were handwritten onto lanterns. This special event was captured on film, as thousands of best wishes from Asia were put to float on the magical Bosphorus.
