Canyon Ranch’s first international location set to open in Turkish Riviera this week

by Jane Kitchen | 27 Jun 2016

Wellness destination Canyon Ranch is set to open its first location outside the US on 1 July in Kaplankaya, Turkey, near Bodrum.

The first international location for the brand marks a significant step in Canyon Ranch’s nearly 40-year history in the wellness space, and involves bringing some of the best programming from the iconic Tucson location to the Turkish Riviera, as the company aims to reach a whole new European audience.

Canyon Ranch Kaplankaya will feature a 107,000sq ft (9,941sq m) spa, fitness and Health & Healing Center, which will house 38 treatment rooms and will offer integrative wellness experiences that combine the best of traditional and eastern medicine.

Designed by Barcelona-based OAB architects, the 141-bedroom resort is constructed with environmentally-conscious materials and finished to complement the surrounding scenery. Principal architect Carlos Ferrater worked to honour the natural beauty of the landscape in his ultra-modern design.

“We’re taking advantage of the surroundings,” said Canyon Ranch Kaplankaya general manager Markus Iseli. “The sea, the climate, the environment – it’s the Turkish Riviera.”

The resort will incorporate water sports and activities into the offerings, as the location features a spectacular peninsula location on the Aegean Coast. The resort will also take advantage of its location to introduce easy, mid- and power-walking routes as well as mountain bike trails.

Iseli said he expects the majority of guests to come from Europe – particularly the UK and Germany – as well as Turkey, the GCC and CIS countries such as Ukraine.

Canyon Ranch also has wellness destination resorts in Tucson, Arizona and Lenox, Massachusetts, and operates a SpaClub day spa at The Venetian and The Palazzo hotels in Las Vegas, as well as SpaClub at Sea facilities on board several cruise ships.
