Amanruya

  • Scott Goetz

The 36 cottages at Amanruya peek out inconspicuously from a pine grove overlooking a quiet Mediterranean bay on the Bodrum peninsula. The 25th hotel from Singapore-based Amanresorts, Amanruya opened in August as one of the most exclusive retreats on Turkey’s increasingly popular Turquoise Coast.

Set among the pines and ancient olive groves, Amanruya’s stone cottages feature private pools and gardens, four-poster beds, charcoal fireplaces, and heated marble floors covered by Turkish rugs. Some accommodations offer sea views, and all afford easy access to the water. Guests take a winding path down to the private, pebble-covered beach and beach club, where they can rent pedal boats and small sailing vessels. An offshore swimming pontoon offers an alternative to the 165-foot pool at the heart of Amanruya.

Four dining pavilions scattered throughout the property focus on Turkish, Asian, and Continental cuisine, while an indoor/outdoor wine lounge serves traditional-style meze platters. Local excursions range from tours of the ancient Greek ruins of Ephesus and the Didyma temple of Apollo to the shopping and nightlife scenes of Bodrum and Turkbuku.
