5. Spa indulgence

“The SensAsia Spa is the ideal place for the girl on the run who needs an amazing facial or detox treatment, like the body-firming Bootcamp. When I want to totally indulge, I go to the Talise Ottoman Spa at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. It’s the most beautiful facility I have ever seen. I kind of wish I could throw a cocktail party in there.”   The most luxurious destinations in Istanbul
