A truly stunning property which brings out the best of its beautiful surroundings and Ottoman heritage. I have been extremely fortunate to have stayed in some amazing hotels all around the world but Amanruya will last long in the memory. If you get cabin fever easily then this isnt the place for you, but for those in search of a short break in which they can truly relax and unwind in ultimate luxury, should look no further. The Villas are incredible, the food amazing, the service attentive, all things you would expect with Aman, but what really blew me away was the attention to detail. Literally no stone has gone unturned in the construction and design of the property which truly immerses guests in Turkeys rich Ottoman past leaving you feeling as though you have really experienced a small part of this amazing country.

Amanruya is very special and it was a privilege to stay there. It is perfect for those in need of a retreat. Its a small property, with only 36 villas, all with a private pool. Its cleverly designed to give guests the ultimate experience in luxury, privacy, peace and relaxation, the hotels rustic, almost monastic aesthetic belies its age, being purpose-built by the world-renowned Aman brand in 2011. There is only one restaurant, but the quality of food and the service was excellent. I would recommend this hotel to couples looking for a unique romantic getaway.
