A ‘Mediterranean oasis’: Edition comes to Turkey

by Jane Kitchen | 29 May 2018

Boutique hotelier Ian Schrager’s Edition brand – created in partnership with Marriott – will make its debut in the Turkish Riviera in June.

The Bodrum Edition, which Schrager said he has designed as “refuge,” with “everything you need and everything you want”, houses a spa facility complete with 14 treatment rooms. The spa also includes a Turkish hammam, salt treatment room, sauna, steam room and plunge pool.

Inspired by local influences and native natural resources, the hotel includes a landscape designed as a Mediterranean oasis with indigenous flora and fauna. Native olive trees and local stone have been used throughout the resort, which features 102 guest rooms, bungalows with private pools and a four-bedroom private villa.

The hotel’s open reception area, designed by Christophe Pillet and Ian Schrager Company, includes a contemporary glass atrium framing the view over the bay.

Guest rooms have a relaxed, beach-house feel, and contrast stone floors against a clean, light colour palette.

Marriott has described 2018 as a 'pivotol' year for the Edition brand, with planned openings bringing the total number of Edition hotels from four to 11 by the end of this year.

Edition will also open its first property in the Middle East this year, with the launch of the 244-bedroom Edition Abu Dhabi in the UAE.

There are also two new properties planned for the US – at New York’s Times Square and West Hollywood, California.

“All of the Edition hotels are unique, original and one-of-a-kind, embedded with a sense of time and place,” said Schrager.

The boutique luxury brand was unveiled in 2007 and the first hotel – designed by architects George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg – opened in November 2010 on Waikiki Beach in Hawaii.
