Healing haven with a first-rate spa on Turkey’s sparkling Aegean coast
Therapeutic doesn’t begin to describe the restorative vibe at this seaside stunner, sleekly camouflaged into the rugged mountains of Turkey's Turquoise Coast. This idyllic all-inclusive selected an unvarnished backdrop for its initial international outpost: Muğla, which some now consider a hushed and more exclusive alternative to Amalfi. Whether you choose from an array of curated “focused stays,” ranging from weight-loss packages to a four-day program aimed at aspiring non-smokers, or simply want to unplug, you’ll emerge decidedly detoxed. Start with a dip in the electric blue waters of the Aegean, followed up with a pampering, centuries-old herbal body treatment at the gargantuan spa (the brand’s signature basalt stone massage is also a worthy option), then tuck into freshly caught seafood and mezze at the poolside café, Wild Thyme. For total privacy, opt for one of the 49 “rooms on the ridge,” spread out across a maze of slopes laden with olive trees, all set above the main resort building.
In the Area
History junkies can delight in the fact that this resort is within driving distance of two ancient world gems, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus and the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus—both claim Seven Wonders of the World status. Also close is the port city of Bodrum, a pretty mix of white stucco homes and bougainvillea vines and its star attraction, a 15th-century castle, which now houses the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. For those who want to stay closer to the emerald coves of Kaplankaya, there are a variety of customized guided hikes designed to fit different fitness levels, as well as windsurfing excursions—after all, you’re in the birthplace of seafaring civilization.
