The turquoise Aegean laps Amanruya’s private pebble beach, while ancient pine forests scent the air. Resting amid olive groves and cypress trees on the Bodrum Peninsula’s serene north coast, the village-like resort is a secluded retreat offering an abundance of space and privacy.
With its candlelit recesses, lofty ceilings and dramatic archways, Amangalla’s Spa and Baths, recaptures a bygone era of taking the waters as restoration for body and mind. The two hydrotherapy suites offer hot and cold plunge pools, steam rooms and saunas, while a range of therapies personalised by the spa’s Ayurvedic physician include massages, anointments, reflexology and scrubs.
The 5,000-year-old “science of life”, Ayurveda approaches wellness in a holistic manner, aiming to prevent ill health by cleansing, detoxifying and balancing each individual’s dominant dosha. Amangalla’s Ayurvedic physician is available to tailor wellness programmes including a range of personalised Ayurvedic therapies and an Ayurvedic nutrition plan.
Amangalla’s signature treatment is an indulgent three-hour journey including a cleansing scrub and wrap of native cinnamon and lotus, followed by a full-body massage and a sandalwood facial. Finish on the veranda sipping afternoon tea accompanied by a silver stand of dainty scones, finger sandwiches and cakes.
Yoga and meditation
The Yoga Pavilion rests in the garden’s green heart, but private yoga and personal training sessions are also offered on the ramparts at sunrise. Guided meditation is offered within Amangalla’s lush 200-year-old gardens.
