At a Glance

Amanruya, whose name is derived from the Sanskrit and Turkish words meaning “peace” and “dream”, is a quintessential Aman property – romantic and quiet.

  • Honeymoon-worthy accommodations in individual cottages with outdoor showers and private plunge pools
  • Beach club located a short golf-cart ride from the main resort
  • Art gallery featuring the work of local artists and sculptures


Located in an old olive grove and surrounded by Mediterranean pines on the northeastern corner of the Bodrum peninsula, Amanruya’s architecture hearkens back to an original Anatolian village. The 36 salmon-hued stone cottages are set into the natural landscape, with hand-laid pebble pathways that wind and weave around cypress trees and hidden corners.

Each cottage is impeccably constructed – the interiors are white marble floors, pane glass windows, four-poster beds with curtains, dark wood accents and a Turkish mangal charcoal fireplace. The bathroom is decadent with a rain shower and a stand-alone tub that looks out onto the garden beyond. Each cottage has its own private, green marble-inlaid pool and a garden that features a pergola with large day beds, a wooden table for an intimate meal, and an outdoor shower with a view of the bay below.

The resort is separated into multiple pavilions for dining and relaxing, and supports the local arts scene with a three-story library tower with books by Turkish authors, and a domed art gallery and carpet gallery that highlight local textiles, jewelry, and artifacts. In its four separate dining pavilions, Amanruya takes advantage of the variety of microclimates in Turkey to deliver a fresh, seasonal menu of Turkish, Indonesian, and Thai cuisines. Although the resort is not set directly on the bay, the property offers a private beach club less than five minutes by golf cart with a fantastic restaurant, kayaks, catamarans, sailboats and a 40-foot speedboat available for daily excursions.

Who Should Stay

This property is romantic and luxurious – best for an intimate couple’s vacation, group of adult friends, or parents with older children who want a quiet retreat.
