Six Senses Kaplankaya to reopen following Clodagh-led redesign

The resort first opened as Canyon Ranch Kaplankaya in July 2016 and includes a 107,000sq ft (9,941sqm) spa

The resort first opened as Canyon Ranch Kaplankaya in July 2016 and includes a 107,000sq ft (9,941sqm) spa

The Six Senses Kaplankaya luxury resort, located close to the Turkish resort town of Bodrum, will reopen in May following a comprehensive redesign by New York-based design studio, Clodagh Design.

Located across a bay from Bodrum, the 141-bedroom resort is carved into giant rock formations and initially opened as Canyon Ranch Kaplankaya in July 2016 – the first international location for the Arizona, US-based resort company.

An attempted Turkish coup d'état just two weeks after the resort’s opening, however, made for challenging timing and Six Senses took over the management of the property in May 2017.

Originally designed by Barcelona-based OAB architects, the resort – which is owned by Capital Partners of Turkey – has now been reimagined and “brought in line with Six Senses design, sustainability and wellness standards”.

Clodagh’s design pays homage to Turkish tradition and guests arriving at the resort will now walk through a lantern-lit portal and wooden doors into a sky-lit lobby, which offers views of the remaining four floors and the sea.

Beneath the lobby, a sculptural collage of kilim rugs and leather-clad ottomans sitting on layered Turkish rugs are interspersed with tables crafted from large pieces of local olive wood.

A spokesperson for Six Senses said: “The resort is a complete passion project for the owners.

“The long-term vision for Six Senses Kaplankaya is to create a high-end, environmentally-sensitive destination, which will encourage positive economic and social growth in Turkey, while preserving the spectacular natural surroundings and heritage of the local area.”

Following the redesign, the resort will be home to one of the most extensive and advanced spa and wellness offerings within the Six Senses portfolio.

Entry to the huge, 10,000sq m (107,640sq ft) spa will be through a seven-metre (23-foot) meditation walk, illuminated by glowing ottoman patterns and a ceiling filled with glittering lights to create a soothing guest experience.

The spa is spread over two floors and features 20 treatment rooms, multiple steamrooms, hydrotherapy pool, traditional Turkish Hammam, ice room, crystal steamroom, Finnish sauna, private watsu pool, nail and hair salons, and a Six Senses Alchemy Bar – first introduced at Six Senses Douro Valley – where guests can blend organic and sustainable ingredients to create their own lotions and potions.

The spa will also be the first property to launch the Six Senses Holistic Anti-ageing clinic, led by neuroscientist Dr Claudia Aguirre.

Wellness and beauty experts will analyse the impact of lifestyle habits and the effect on toxicity levels which can lead to premature ageing.

Integrated with Sleep with Six Senses and Eat with Six Senses as well as movement and mindfulness, the clinic will curate personalised programmes around the four pillars of “sleep and detox, restore and nourish”.

As well as the 141-key resort property, Six Senses Kaplankaya will also include 66 Ridge Villas and residences.
