Set over 25 acres of lush parkland overlooking the Bosphorus, Cemile Sultan Korusu (Cemile Sultan Grove) offers some of the best views in Istanbul.
Constructed by Princess Cemile as a lodge, the original building collapsed and was later rebuilt. The Grove is located in Istanbul’s Kandilli district on the Asian side.
Following years of neglect, the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce took over and declared the Grove a conservation area, thereby saving much of the flora and fauna and planting many more trees.
Boasting several restaurants, sports facilities, meeting rooms and beautiful gardens, the Cemile Sultan Grove is a popular function space and areas of it can be hired for special occasions. Dining options include Koru Restaurant, Hünkar Kösk, Sultan Kösk and the Tas Bar.
Sport enthusiasts will appreciate the onsite billiard room, games room, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts and the semi-Olympic sized swimming pool. Other facilities include meeting and seminar rooms and the garden area with pool and waterfall that can accommodate up to 1,500 guests.
