Would you take a wellness trip to Turkey right now?
Canyon Ranch ushered in the concept of wellness travel, and its been perfecting the concept in Tucson, Arizona for four decades. This summer the brand went international with the opening of Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya in Turkey.
Located on a spectacular peninsula on the sun-kissed Aegean coast, The Canyon Ranch development, includes both a resort and luxury real estate offerings. The property integrates the signature wellness and lifestyle programming Canyon Ranch is known for.
Canyon Ranch is the anchor of the Kaplankaya development, an exclusive waterfront enclave on the Turkish Riviera, near the city of Bodrum. A rarefied mix of natural beauty and contemporary design, Kaplankaya could be poised to be the next jetstter hotspot. Certainly, it has breathtaking natural beauty, significant ruins and archeological sites, but the current instability and recent attacks in Turkey could make Canyon Ranch’s first international destination a hard sell.
The centerpiece of Canyon Ranch is a 107,500 square foot Spa, Fitness and Health + Healing Center. The oasis features 38 treatment rooms where guests enjoy rejuvenating treatments combining traditional and Eastern medicine practices for a complete integrative wellness. Additional wellness offerings include mountain biking tours, sailing and wind surfing, helicopter tours, scuba diving,
Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya has a total of 141 rooms – 75 Hotel rooms and suites as well as 66 exquisite Ridge rooms, all of which have views of the Aegean Sea. The resort features two restaurants – Sage + Sea in the hotel, and Wild Thyme, a more casual option located adjacent to a pool and beach – which offers a wide array of healthy and flavorful gourmet Mediterranean dishes showcasing the best local ingredients.
The wellness retreat will also feature mind/body programming and the strong fitness schedule Canyon Ranch is known for.
I haven’t had the pleasure of personally checking out this new Canyon Ranch…yet. But I’d love to get your feedback if you have been and also would the situation in Turkey make you hesitant to go at all?
