Amanruya, Turkey

Drawing its name from ruya, Turkish for ‘dream’, Amanruya overlooks the Aegean Sea in a quiet valley on Turkey’s Bodrum Peninsula. A private village ensconced in thousands of years of history, the free-standing Pavilions combine Mediterranean and Turkish architectural details, opening out onto picturesque gardens with private swimming pools. Bordered by a forest reserve, the resort enjoys a sea frontage of almost one kilometre and offers a serene beach club. Amanruya is close to the ancient cities of Didyma and Ephesus, making it an ideal base for exploring the region’s historic treasures and enjoying its natural beauty.
