Essentially floating off the shores of Istanbul’s Bosporus, it’s one of Europe’s chicest beach clubs despite that fact that there’s actually no beach at all. Known as Suada, it’s a virtual private island and all-white floating landmark home to three restaurants, beach club and nightclub off the shores of the Bosporus accessed by ferry service and private yacht. A beacon of chic new Istanbul society, during summer months the location is ground zero for the city’s fashion and entertainment set to strip down, lay-out and show-off in the sun.
By day Suada is ruled by its Olympic-size swimming pool, adorned with mattress-style loungers clad in white linen topped-off with welled-toned models and pretty people. Arranged around a massive pool deck dotted with white umbrellas, the beach club is home to weekend DJ parties and be-seen summer soirées. By night the space transitions to the on-site nightclub located within a massive glass-domed lounge with similar all-white theme and indoor-outdoor architecture that takes advantage of the awe-inspiring views of the Istanbul skyline and sexy entourage of starlets with heartthrob eye-candy.
