a lush paradise | maxx royal bodrum resort

Stepping onto the newly opened Maxx Royal Bodrum Resort grounds is like walking into paradise. With the anticipation and excitement of the opening in the air, the beachside gem — which is designed by the renowned Turkish architect Mahmut Anlar — is the epitome of luxury and style and is destined to be a hotspot in Bodrum this summer. Nestled on the picturesque Bodrum peninsula, this sprawling 11.4-hectare property offered an exclusive resort experience. The collaboration with Scorpios, known for its creative beach concept from Mykonos, added a unique touch to the resort’s offerings.

Access to the resort was not limited to traditional means — guests had the option to arrive in style via yacht, offering a scenic journey to the resort’s shores, or by helicopter for a swift and breathtaking arrival from Milas Bodrum Airport, adding an extra touch of luxury and convenience to their stay. When arriving, it’s easy to indulge — international culinary delights awaited guests, with renowned partners such as Caviar Kaspia, Wolfgang Puck’s Spago, THE MAINE, and Alfredo Russo’s ORO, promising an unforgettable dining experience. What makes it even better is most of the food is focused on the Aegean region’s abundant local produce to truly immerse yourself in the place.

For culture lovers and art aficionados, one can find themselves in paradise with the works of globally recognized artists like Refik Anadol and Bernar Venet adorning the resort, alongside talented local artists’ creations. The resort’s sustainable design and LEED Gold certification ensured a harmonious blend with the natural surroundings, providing a serene haven for guests.

Wellness enthusiasts can indulge in the flagship Maxx WellBeing Centre, a sanctuary of relaxation and rejuvenation with a range of holistic treatments and spa rituals. The flagship 4,500-square-meter space is a sanctuary dedicated to wellness, featuring 20 treatment rooms that offer an extensive array of holistic and science-based treatments from prestigious international spa brands, including Biologique Recherche, Art of Detox Phytomer, and Swiss Perfection. Guests can indulge in a soul-soothing menu of signature spa rituals, such as the authentic Turkish Bath treatment, which utilizes locally sourced roses and rosewater. Everything from hydro and thermal experiences to a dedicated Medi-Spa section can be used, in addition to a state-of-the-art Technogym fitness studio and an extensive selection of group classes. 

Families were not forgotten at Maxx Royal Bodrum, with the expansive Maxxi Land children’s Club offering a host of activities for kids and teens, ensuring a fun-filled stay for the whole family. The art and culture scene at the resort was equally captivating, with monumental sculptures by Bernar Venet, digital art installations by Refik Anadol, and a dynamic exhibition program curated by Arts Connected.

As I immersed myself in the world-class amenities and experiences at Maxx Royal Bodrum, from exquisite dining to wellness indulgence and cultural exploration, I couldn’t help but marvel at the thoughtful details and unparalleled luxury that awaited at every turn. A true haven for the discerning traveller seeking a blend of art, culture, wellness, and culinary delights, this resort was a destination like no other. It promises an unforgettable escape in the heart of Bodrum’s beauty, with the added allure of arriving by yacht or helicopter for a truly unforgettable experience.
