The first standalone residence of The Ritz-Carlton in Europe, Middle East and Africa offers the ultimate Mediterranean hideout.

In the heart of Bodrum’s most desired area, Tilkicik Bay of Yalıkavak and developed by Aksoy Holding of Turkey with an investment to the tune of €200 Million Euro, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Bodrum is a gated community composed of sophisticated, modern and detached private villas. Perfectly positioned on an undulating 126,000 sqm private peninsula with panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and just steps away from a secluded 1.7-mile stretch of beach, these wonderfully chic villas redefine luxury sea-front living.

Designed by world-renowned South African architectural firm SAOTA and with interiors by HBA the villas enjoy open floorplans ranging from two-to-five bedrooms, as well as a private heated swimming pool, landscaped gardens and cabana & sun terraces. Every villa has designer fittings, state-of-the-art appliances, floor-to-ceiling windows with layouts that blur the line between indoor and outdoor, maximizing the space and making the most of the incredible views.  Designed to align with the architectural and environmental characteristics of Bodrum, the villas blend seamlessly into the environment thanks to the use of natural materials, a muted colour palette and special landscaping.

This theme is continued inside, with the Mediterranean landscape of the Bodrum peninsula providing the inspiration for the relaxed interiors. Showcasing a refined eclectism, a rich source of local inspiration has translated into many decorative elements including the furniture, finishes and materials. The materials used to introduce a natural feel to the space and contemporary artworks add a touch of colour. The overall feel and aesthetic reflect a barefoot luxury; an intimate and tranquil hideout.

Featuring the first standalone residence of The Ritz-Carlton in Europe, Middle East and Africa, the residences offer an amenity-rich lifestyle unlike anywhere else in the region with the legendary service excellence of The Ritz-Carlton and exceptional facilities. The mile-long private beach and various sun terraces & decks spread across the peninsula provide ample space to soak in the sunshine. Massage cabanas, a community pool, a swimmable natural pond, restaurant & bar, fitness center, kids club, residence concierge and residents lounge with owners lounge, SPA, media & meeting rooms inside, all managed by a dedicated residential management team mean guests never have to leave. The dedicated management team also ensures seamless delivery of services such as valet, in-residence dining, in-residence housekeeping and concierge services.

A popular summer destination, the town of Bodrum (ancient Halicarnassus) has an enigmatic elegance; from its enchanting castle and glittering marina to its bustling cafes and white-plastered backstreets, there is plenty to discover.
