Six Senses Kaplankaya: the best luxury wellness hotel in Turkey

In our opinion, this is the best luxury hotel in Turkey, and the international flagship of the Six Senses brand when it comes to wellness stays, according to its own CEO Neil Jacobs, whom we asked about this a short while ago. Set against an idyllic backdrop of turquoise waters and pine forests, the 5-star resort is the fruit of a successful encounter between modern architecture and Turkey’s historic heritage. With a wide range of treatments and personalized activities, there’s something for everyone at the wellness center, which covers an incredible 10,000 m². Six Senses Kaplankaya is also the place to relax, which can be enjoyed without any complexes on one of the resort’s three private beaches. Luxe Wellness Club offers you the chance to stay in this magnificent hotel and enjoy a complete workout under the sun of the Aegean Sea .

The resort’s geographical location allows guests to soak up the sun between cypress and wild olive trees. In addition to nature’s resplendent colors, the area is steeped in history. Numerous archaeological sites are within easy reach of the hotel, including two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the Temple of Artemis and the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus.

Located just north of Bodrum, the hotel can be reached by car or yacht. From Milas-Bordum International Airport, 50 minutes by car, 30 minutes by yacht and 10 minutes by helicopter…

Contemporary rooms overlooking the Aegean Sea

There’s no mistaking the 141 rooms at Six Senses Kaplankaya, all of which offer a view of the famous Aegean Sea. The natural materials used blend delicately with the surrounding landscape, creating a contemporary ambience with luxurious decor.

In addition to splendid rooms and suites, the resort also offers residences with three, four or five bedrooms. Cornelian choice: you have to decide between accommodation with or without a private pool.

The residences and “Ridge Terrace Rooms” give you that home-away-from-home feeling, with a cosy space for reading or marvelling at the sun’s reflection on the Aegean Sea.

Special mention goes to the bedding, which promotes restful sleep while respecting nature. The sheets are made from breathable organic cotton, and the pillows and mattresses are handmade from natural materials and organic residues.

Ecology and social commitment play a key role in the Six Senses hotel chain. These include the elimination of plastic, support for local communities and the use of renewable energies.

No less than 10,000 m² dedicated to well-being

Six Senses Kaplankaya offers everything you’d expect from a top-of-the-range spa, and much more besides: multiple indoor and outdoor pools, hammam, sauna, Turkish bath, state-of-the-art fitness equipment, sports courts and gyms (squash, basketball, ping-pong, yoga, etc.) and to round it all off, three heavenly private beaches.

You’ll also find 38 treatment rooms designed to get you back into shape, a nail bar, a barber and a hairdresser.

In fact, the hotel was originally designed by American wellness specialists Canyon Ranch, before they abandoned the project and it was taken over by Six Senses. That’s why the 10,000 m² sports and wellness center is one of the most impressive in the world.

A magnificent place, fully equipped and supervised by wellness experts. The program includes sports classes, activities with personal guides, relaxation, meditation and watsu (shiatsu stretching in hot water)…

To help you feel good and boost your energy, you can take stock of your situation and draw up a personalized list of treatments. Whether it’s for three, five or seven days, everyone can design their own program with the help and advice of the wellness center’s professionals.

Complete, revitalizing wellness packages

Six Senses places well-being at the top of the priority scale, and here the principles of traditional Eastern medicine blend with the knowledge of the Western world. Among the many wellness experiences on offer at Six Senses Kaplankaya, here is our selection:

Firstly, theHydrothermal Experience, which transports customers from one thermal atmosphere to another. Salt caves are one of Turkey’s highlights, and this experience takes you straight into one of them.

Continuing this trend of local color, it would be hard not to mention the Kaplankaya Signature Hammam experience. During the treatment, traditional techniques purify and invigorate your skin. This is followed by the application of an anti-aging mask made from green clay infused with rose essential oil. Finally, a foaming massage and hair care treatments complete this most relaxing experience.

The spa also features an “Alchemy Bar”, where you can play sorcerer’s apprentice under the guidance of a therapist. Amazing workshops teach you how to make your own cosmetics, incorporating the textures and aromas of local products. After this discovery, you can create your own scrub, for example, and enjoy it during a treatment at another time.

Tasty, healthy, fresh cuisine

It’s impossible to talk about the restaurants at Six Senses Kaplankaya without mentioning the concept of the Eat With Six Senses chain: particular attention is paid to the choice of cooked products. The hotel tries to source as much as possible from local growers and market gardeners, and grows its own organic vegetable garden .

The flavors of the resort’s three restaurants are inspired by traditional local cuisine and Mediterranean aromas.

Sage & Sea Restaurant and Bar is the hotel’s main restaurant and bar. Guests can also have breakfast here. A large buffet, as gourmet as it is balanced, is served every morning.

With one eye on the open kitchen and the other on the panoramic view of the Aegean Sea, guests of the Wild Thyme Restaurant and Bar come here to enjoy tasty cuisine in a more relaxed setting.
