Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Amanruya is nestled amongst the secluded coves, pine forests and olive groves of the Bodrum Peninsula, with a 1km-long stretch of private pebbly beach overlooking the Aegean. Guests can visit artisan villages and fascinating ruins such as those at the UNESCO-listed ruins of Ephesus, which can be reached on a day trip, and set out on scenic hiking trails, while the town of Bodrum, with its medieval castle, cafés and restaurants, is just 20 minutes away.

Rooms at Amanruya

Amanruya is styled on a traditional village, and its spacious and elegant suites and pavilions feature stone, terracotta and wood, with cool white walls, marble floors, traditional Turkish mangal charcoal fireplaces, dark acajau wood furnishings and handmade kilim rugs, alongside luxe four-poster beds and floor-to-ceiling windows to make the most of the vistas.

The bathrooms are all white marble and natural lighting, with deep freestanding baths and invigorating rainshowers, and the private marble pools are set in large gardens with dining areas, pergolas with cushioned daybeds, and beautiful views over the pine forests, olive groves and coastline.

Food & Drink

Feast on gourmet Turkish cuisine by the pool, while there are numerous spots around the hotel, including pavilions set in the hills, where you can enjoy a leisurely meal accompanied by the sun and sea views. The expert chefs make the most of local, organic produce, with fresh seafood and local olive oils some of the staples. Enjoy meze platters with home-baked bread, or take out a delicious picnic on a hike and enjoy it on a hilltop overlooking the Aegean. 

If it’s a tipple or two you’re after, head straight for the lounge, which offers panoramic views from the wraparound windows and is also a lovely spot for afternoon tea, or visit the wine lounge for a glass of wine and views over the hills and the bay.


The hotel has a divine 50-metre infinity pool, lined with green Antalya marble, with incredible views, as well as a spa offering blissful treatments such as massages and body scrubs, using essential oils such as cardamom and bergamot. Enjoy a yoga session in the studio or outdoors, overlooking the sea, while there's also a fitness room and a tennis court.

Activities at Amanruya

Hike, bike or horse ride around the serene landscapes, play golf at the small golf club nearby, go diving to explore the sunken ancient city of Myndos, or set sail in Amanruya's 40ft yacht to investigate the coves and beaches dotted along the coast.   

Further afield, you will find staggering ancient ruins, including the world-renowned Temple of Apollo at Didyma, which dates from the 7th century BC, the city of Ephesus and the incredibly well-preserved Temple of Athena, where you can look out for 2,000-year-old graffiti!

Turkey is also known for its centuries-old arts and crafts traditions, such as pottery making with distinctive red clay, and intricate hand-knotted carpets. Watch artisans at work in the local villages - or have a go yourself - and visit Amanruya's own art gallery, which showcases the work of local artists and sculptors.
