Amanruya
Trip of a Lifetime

Nestled in a grove of pine and citrus trees among ancient ruins, the minimalist, modern architecture of this hotel typically elicits a one-word response: amazing. Guest accommodations at this heavenly spot—set in a serene valley on Turkey's Bodrum Peninsula, not far from the popular vacation town of the same name—are limited to just 36 stone cottages, all of which have traditional Turkish fireplaces, outdoor dining areas, and Mediterranean gardens dotted with private pools and daybeds. Meticulously crafted meals—a selection of international and local cuisine—can be taken in-room or in one of the intimate stone-and-wood dining pavilions. While bespoke excursions to the area's ancient sites are available, many guests prefer to soak in their large tubs or in the brilliant Aegean Sea, which fronts the hideaway. Standard complimentary touches include round-trip transfers and some snacks and in-room beverages.
