The Bodrum Edition has opened on the Turkish Riviera and includes a spa that hopes to bring a renewed style of luxury to the ancient Turkish bathing of the hammam.
The resort includes a state-of-the art spa facility complete with salt treatment room, sauna, steam room and plunge pool. The spa has 14 treatment rooms, including three outdoor treatment areas, and two couples’ areas with both indoor and outdoor space, and is using products from Budapest-based organic skincare brand Omorovicza.
Two types of hammam are offered: a traditional Turkish style with soap foam, and a Moroccan hammam with black clay soap, each available for 30 minutes or one hour.
Set within 22,000 sq metres (72,200 sq feet), the 102-bedroom Bodrum Edition has been designed by designed by Christophe Pillet, who has drawn inspiration from local influences and native natural resources, and combined these with ultra-modern twists.
The landscape, conjured as a Mediterranean oasis, reflects the peninsula’s indigenous flora and fauna. Native olive trees and local stone have been used throughout.
The resort’s largest restaurant, Kitchen, is inspired by the relaxed lifestyle of the Balinese and Hawaiian coasts, offering an all-day brunch menu focussed on health and wellness.
