Amanruya resort in Bodrum. On the scalloped coastline of the Bodrum Peninsula, Amanruya – the name meaning ‘peaceful dream’ – lies in a landscape of sheltered coves and ancient olive groves. Overlooking a kilometre of private beach with far-reaching views of the Aegean Sea, the property is laid out as a traditional village, with rustic guest Pavilions of stone and terracotta bleached by the Mediterranean sun. Away from the property’s jewel-like central pool and elegant Beach Club, guests can explore the area’s magnificent ruins, including the Unesco World Heritage Site of Ephesus, along with artisan villages and picturesque hiking trails.

*open until 15 November
