With flourishing pine forests, olive groves, the sound of cicadas and the crystal-clear warm waters of Bodrum Bay as its setting, Amanruya fulfils the promise of its name ‘peaceful dream’. With only 36 spacious Pavilions, each with a garden and pool the resort is an excellent choice for anybody looking for privacy and seclusion.
