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.
The Ise Shima region was renowned as the breadbasket of Japan’s ancient imperial court, and Amanemu celebrates the bounty and diversity of ingredients naturally available nearby – both in the chefs’ cuisine and the bartenders’ cocktails.
With mesmerising views across the surrounding forest to the bay below, Amanemu’s Restaurant celebrates Japan’s culinary heritage at breakfast, lunch and dinner, alongside a selection of refined international dishes – all with an emphasis on the fresh, local flavours of the season. Japanese Cuisine Chef Katsutoshi Kitahara sources exceptional produce from Ise-Shima, including Matsusaka Wagyu beef and prized seafood such as spiny lobster and abalone from Ago Bay.
The Bar & Lounge
Set beside the swimming pool, Amanemu’s Bar champions local ingredients every bit as much as the Restaurant kitchen, serving Japanese craft beers and inventive house cocktails crafted with regional fruits and herbs. Outside on the terrace, the sunken lounge makes the perfect setting for lantern-lit evenings watching the sun set into the sea.
Dine poolside, overlooking serene Ago Bay and Amanemu’s spectacular 33m infinity pool for the spring/summer season. With the water temperature kept at a balmy 28 degrees, the pool is inviting even on cooler days, and the delicious appetisers, light meals and vast range of drinks on offer make this the perfect spot for all-day dining and refreshments. *Only available for guests staying at the hotel. Reservation is required due to COVID restrictions.
As the seasons change, so do the colours of Ago Bay and the landscapes in view from Amanemu’s restaurant. Using the freshest local ingredients, Amanemu's chefs create dishes that reflect the beauty of these natural surroundings, creating exclusive and inspiring dining experiences all year round.
