Some of the highlights of the property include its ultra-deluxe suites and villas; the iconic Caviar Kaspia venue; an extensive wellness program at MaxxWellBeing Spa; the Scorpios Beach Club of Mykonos fame; and the opportunity to experience an off-site visit to the Ancient City of Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The 27-acre resort will offer a variety of accommodation options, including multiple suites and villas. All rooms and public areas of the resort feature local artisan-crafted ceramics and artwork, and all guests will be greeted by a striking installation created for the hotel’s lobby by Turkish-American artist Refik Anadol.

Food and beverage venues include seven restaurants, all with farm-to-table-style menus displaying local and seasonal produce. An array of authentic local Turkish specialties is provided at one of the resort’s restaurants named Twenty 4. The property’s beverage program also includes six bars.

The huge Maxx WellBeing Spa offers 20 treatment rooms offering holistic and science-based treatments including Balneotherapy, flotation experiences like Nuvola massage, and beauty-focused treatments. A dedicated Medi-Spa area with nine high-tech treatment rooms focuses on non-invasive anti-aging experiences such as an ozone sauna, a sensory deprivation tank and platelet-rich plasma injections. Guests will enjoy the spa’s extensive hydro and thermal area featuring a herbal sauna and herbal essence steam room, infrared sauna, salt room, rain room, a Kneippe Walk, a Hammam with dedicated treatment rooms, and a Tepedarium relaxation area.

The fitness studio includes a comprehensive range of Technogym cardiovascular and strength training equipment with expert instructors to provide one-on-one training. Group classes include Pilates, aerial yoga, functional strength, breathwork, sound healing and spinning. The resort also has an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool.

Maxx Royal Bodrum partnered with Scorpios Beach Club, the renowned beach concept first conceived on the Greek island of Mykonos in 2014. Scorpios Bodrum is on the peninsula, right next to Maxx Royal Bodrum Resort and will welcome guests outside Greece for the first time. At Scorpios, guests experience cross-cultural experimentation in music and art together with a wellbeing program inside the dedicated Ritual Space. Alongside this, guests will be well nourished with Eastern Mediterranean cuisine. Scorpios Bodrum opens this June.

Younger guests will also experience an adventure of their own in the large Maxxi Land children’s club, set to be the largest space of its kind in Bodrum. This new Kid’s Club with dedicated, age-appropriate areas will cater to children from 1 year old to teens. Older kids will have a program of activities to choose from, including land and sea sports, dance classes and performances, and themed art and science workshops with plenty of hands-on fun. Teenagers will also love the cinema and gaming rooms, and parents will be able to relax and enjoy some beach time or a meal for two knowing their little ones will be well looked after by the expert Maxx childcare team, a babysitting service available upon request.

Explore an Enclave Steeped in Authenticity Just Outside of Ubud

The verdant hills, rice terraces and serene temples have long attracted visitors to the island of Bali, where incense perfumes the air and raindrops scatter with an almost spiritual significance on city sidewalks. Today many visitors decide to stay, taking up residence in the now expat-centric hub of Ubud. The district was once the spiritual capital of Bali, but, in just the last five years, the desire for trendy cafés playing chill lofi music, craft brews and nightclubs has driven out many locally owned shops in central Ubud.

Bio-und Wellnesshotel Stanglwirt Review

The history of western Austria’s Stanglwirt stretches back to the 16th century, when a small tavern catered to miners stopping for a drink after long shifts. Today, it’s far from its modest beginnings, sprawling in scale and catering to a considerably different crowd, but you’ll still find heaps of heritage everywhere in this forward-thinking property that treasures traditional Tyrolean hospitality.
