Bodrum, our first taste of an Aman Resort

There are few places in the world which offer classical history and natural beauty in equal measure. The Aegean region of Turkey is one such place. This fabled coastline is where Homer’s heroes were born, where the ancient Greeks consulted their oracles and the Romans built magnificent temples to honour their gods. Everywhere are reminders of this glorious past, vying for attention with spectacular natural scenery including ancient pine forests and scalloped bays. One such bay on the Bodrum Peninsula is home to Amanruya, a tranquil all-season resort. Named after the Sanskrit word for peace, ‘aman’, and the Turkish word for dream, Amanruya is set on a peaceful hillside, offering breathtaking views of the sea and a winding pathway leading to a sheltered pebble beach.

Amanruya is home for the next 2 days.

It tools us a long time to get here with the wind storm a 3 hours transfer by road from Izmir airport, but the setting is really amazing.

Caroline and Peter are leaving us today for Paris

We are ready for the next leg to Aqaba Jordan
