Kempinski Group has signed management agreements with Turkish real-estate company Nef for two new luxury residential and hospitality projects in Turkey. Developed by Nef, the projects in Sapanca and Gölköy, Bodrum will showcase a hybrid residential and hospitality offering where homeowners can enjoy the services of a luxury resort.

The villas will range from two to six bedrooms, and will offer gardens, pools, verandas and indoor-outdoor living spaces with views of Demirbükü Bay. A luxury boutique hotel will also allow guests to enjoy the exclusive facilities of the resort.
The villas are connected by a network of low-impact roads and trails accessed by electric buggies. Facilities include an Italian restaurant, yoga and pilates decks, massage cabanas, outdoor swimming pool and separate children’s pool, a private beach, fitness facilities and playground. As well, three jetties will provide space to moor private craft, while on-demand yacht charters can whisk residents to the luxury shopping and nightlife of Yalikavak Marina, 20 minutes along the coast.
