More exciting news from Banyan Tree. The Singapore-based hospitality brand will arrive in Turkey in spring 2017 with a resort in Yahkavak, Bodrum. This is a prime piece of coastal real estate on the Turkish Riviera: a cape surrounded by the Aegean sea on three sides, overlooking a 1500-ft private beach. A collaboration with Nef, a real estate developer in Turkey, the Banyan Tree Bodrum is being touted as a “summerhouse concept” with a “new luxury service model.”
There will be 70 guest rooms including 14 spa suites with private pools, 40 standard rooms and 30 super-sized “branded” suites. Along with the signature Banyan Tree spa, amenities will be expansive, running the gamut from a kids club to an outdoor cinema. The project also includes private residences.
This is Banyan Tree’s first resort hotel in Europe. Currently the portfolio is comprised of 43 hotels in 28 countries, and Banyan Tree continues to expand in new destinations globally.
