Experiences at Six Senses Kaplankaya, Bodrum

PREMIER COLLECTION 52
SS Kaplankaya Standard Logo1

Located across the bay from Bodrum, the vision for Six Senses Kaplankaya is to offer a pioneering approach to wellness while preserving the natural surroundings steeped in history and culture. Seamlessly bridging old and new, the resort combines contemporary architecture and high tech comforts for its 141 guestrooms, six suites, 66 Ridge Terrace Rooms and residences. The resort is carved into giant rock formations with green roofed buildings layered down towards the coastline to offer everyone a view across the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. Presenting a robust mosaic of architecture, history and art, the resort is within easy reach of many archaeological sites including two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

The Turkish hospitality begins with the arrival experience: whether by speedboat slicing a foaming wake to the floating dock, by helicopter descent to a green lawn or by driving up through hills flanked with ancient olive trees and hedges of blooming oleander. Guests walk through the lantern lit portal and wooden doors into a sky-lit lobby where there is a glass railing to look down over the remaining four floors and out to sea. A massive wood table, gold leafed underneath, glows as it presents Turkish delicacies and signature beverages to arriving guests.

The 141 guest rooms including six suites (75 in the main building and 66 Ridge Villas) all boast stunning views to the Aegean Sea. Each guest room and villa was designed to complement the landscape, using natural materials for contemporary elegant simplicity. Meandering paths make this scenic area feel like a Mediterranean village.

Seaview Pool Residences with three bedrooms offering private garden and swimming pools, comfortable living/ for six, separate guest bathroom, fully furnished kitchen, iPad and unlimited high-speed wireless Internet. Available with 1,884 and 1,990-square foot (175 and 185-square meter) rental options.

Guests who travel with their families or prefer extra privacy can book one of the Ridge Terrace Rooms (with or without pool) which are private retreats offering nomadic experiences within the independent buildings. Each terrace room has a small garden with unique surprises such as an ancient olive tree, an outdoor shower, a plunge pool or a cabana filled with gorgeous pillows.
