An access road weaves its way through the trees before revealing one’s first glimpse of Amanruya and its graceful setting. Inspired by the region’s traditional architecture and building methods, the resort ascends through a series of levels, offering a variety of courtyards and terraces. This creates the intimate ambience of a village while still providing a sense of space and luxury. The resort combines Mediterranean and Ottoman architectural design elements, all the while complementing and respecting the property’s pristine natural surrounds. Amanruya offers 36 spacious and elegant Pool Terrace Cottages, each with a private garden and pool. Designed to welcome and soothe, the cottages are gracious homes away from home and a cool air of sophisticated calm prevails.
Pool Terrace Cottage – The 75-square metre cottages feature a four-poster bed, two couches, a dining table and two chairs, a rectangular writing desk, a traditional Turkish mangal charcoal fireplace, a separate vanity area and clothes closet and a large, naturally-lit open bathroom. This features a rain shower and a large bath tub from which one can enjoy private garden views. Traditional handmade rugs and throws from Istanbul provide warmth and an element of Turkish opulence. Fitted with underfloor heating for use in the cooler months, there is also a fireplace that accommodates a brazier. This can be lit with firewood for use in the living room or on the terrace. Each cottage enjoys its own spacious garden which leads to a private grey-green marble swimming pool. The layout of the gardens and pools vary. Some pools are square and others rectangular. There are 22 heated pools and 16 are kept at the ambient temperature. The gardens feature pergolas with large cushioned daybeds and two separate wooden chaise lounges with shade umbrellas. All Pool Terrace Cottages are equipped with LCD screen TVs, wireless internet, DVD players, mini bars, espresso machines, safety boxes, iPod players, air conditioning, hair dryers, electronic keys and king-size beds.
