Following the success of award-winning sister hotel, Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal, the new Turkish resort, Six Senses Kaplankaya has recently opened its doors. Six Senses Kaplankaya creates a unique guest experience aiming to address all the senses to achieve the ultimate in balance and wellbeing. Seamlessly bridging old and new, the spa and wellness resort combines contemporary architecture and high-tech comforts for its 141 guestrooms.


Located across the bay from Bodrum on a naturally beautiful stretch of ancient Aegean coast, Six Senses Kaplankaya is carved into giant rock formations with green-roofed buildings layered down towards the coastline.  Preserving its natural surroundings, the resort is surrounded by undulating hills clad in evergreens, rugged rocks, wild olive trees and cypresses, and flanked by secluded golden beaches and the turquoise sea’s lapping waves. It is also within easy reach of many cultural and archaeological sites, including two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus in Bodrum, and The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus near Izmir.

Six Senses Kaplankaya is home to one of the most extensive and advanced spa and wellness offerings within the Six Senses portfolio, providing guests and residents with a truly integrated approach to optimal wellness. The spa is spread over two floors with 20 treatment rooms and comprises an impressive signature treatment menu. Six Senses Kaplankaya is the first property to launch the Six Senses Holistic Anti-ageing clinic led by renowned neuroscientist Dr Claudia Aguirre.  Other facilities include a state-of-the-art gym, a yoga studio, a movement studio, multiple steam rooms, a hydrotherapy pool, a traditional Turkish Hamman, an ice room, a crystal steam room, a Finnish sauna, a private watsu pool, a nail salon and hair salon, and the much-loved Six Senses Alchemy Bar, where guests can skillfully blend organic and sustainable ingredients to create their own lotions and potions.


Additionally, nutritionists, exercise physiologists and certified fitness instructors guide visitors through holistic healing practices, and programmes designed around movement, weight loss, cleansing and mindfulness. Packages such as ‘Yoga Gateway’, ‘Healthy Weight’ and ‘De-stress & Re-connect’ are also on offer providing the latest advancements in preventative wellness.


Lastly, for families, Family Ridge Villas offer the ultimate in spacious accommodation, some complete with their own private pool.  These are sheltered retreats offering a more nomadic experience within their own independent enclaves.  Each villa has a small garden with either its own ancient olive tree, an outdoor shower, a plunge pool or a gorgeously-decorated cabana.
