Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Amanruya is on Mandalay Bay, sitting snugly in a secluded spot on the northern coast of the Bodrum Peninsula, overlooking the Aegean.

Rooms at Amanruya

Spacious and elegant, the hotel’s elegant stone cottages each have private marble pools set in large gardens with dining areas, pergolas and beautiful views over the pine forests, olive groves and coastline.

Inside, the Mediterranean and Turkish-influenced interiors showcase local materials, including Turkish marble floors, traditional Turkish mangal charcoal fireplaces, dark acajau wood furnishings and rustic stone features, alongside luxe four-poster beds and floor-to-ceiling windows to make the most of the vistas. Bathrooms are all white marble and natural lighting, with deep baths and invigorating rainshowers.

Food & Drink

Feast on gourmet Mediterranean cuisine at Amanruya, in the cosy Dining Pavilion or beneath the vaulted ceilings of the Wine Cellar, while there are numerous spots around the hotel where you can enjoy a 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 hotel lounge or wine bar: there’s a wine cellar too, for special events. Reluctant to move an inch from your sunlounger? Order lunch, snacks and drinks down at the Beach Club.


The hotel has a divine Olympic-sized infinity pool, lined with green marble from Antalya, 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. There is also a yoga studio, a fitness room and a tennis court.

Poke your nose into Amanruya’s art gallery, which showcases work from local artists and sculptors.

Activities at Amanruya

Amanruya’s Beach Club is a 10-minute golf buggy ride down from the hotel, through the fragrant forests, hugged by the still waters of the Aegean. The sundeck is dappled with shade and has a ladder from which to enter the sea. 

Hike or horse ride around the scenic landscapes, or go diving to explore the sunken ancient city of Myndos. Hop on a pedalo or a traditional gulet (sailing boat) to investigate the coves dotted along the coast from the hotel. 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 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.
