Claiming an idyllic bay all to itself on Bodrum’s serene north coast, Amanruya rests on a hillside with its own pebble beach amidst ancient pine forests scenting the air.
An incomparable location for revelling in summer’s balmy days while enjoying unparalleled access to the region’s historic ruins and culinary delights, the resort reopened for the season on 1 April 2023 with an exciting new array of experiences.
With new Executive Chef Omer Ozkan Cam at the helm, Amanruya’s cuisine will imbue an even deeper Ottoman influence with focus given to ingredients sourced from local producers.
Alongside his expert team, the chef is collaborating with boutique wineries from across Turkey to introduce a new series of wine dinners showcasing indigenous grape varieties – held once a week from May to mid-June in atmospheric settings across the property.
Throughout the season, Amanruya’s olive oil takes centre stage as the foundation of the resort’s food concept, drawing from the exceptional harvest that the resort experienced from its 3,000 olive trees last year – a record yield of over two tonnes.
From food as an artform, to art itself, Amanruya has some exciting plans for its Gallery in 2023. A new partnership with Galeri Bosfor in Istanbul sees an exciting calendar of exhibitions and art events – from breakfasts and dinners to live screenings – being curated by Galeri Bosfor founder, Gökşen Buğra.
Exhibitions will feature artists the likes of Ahmet Çerkez, Olga Ülkenciler and Erman Özbaşaran, as well as local talent who draw inspiration from the rich history and natural beauty of this storied land.
With minimal rainfall and plenty of warm sunshine, Morocco presents the ideal seasonal escape. Inspired by the rose-hued buildings of old Marrakech, palatial Amanjena lies close to the fabled Red City within its own expanse of lush gardens, fringed by the emerald fairways of the Amelkis Golf Course.
