Six Senses Kaplankaya, Bodrum
Discover Six Senses Kaplankaya...A Sustainable Paradise
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 wave 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.
