The brand chooses a setting of unrivaled natural beauty for its first launch overseas.
FORT WORTH, TEXAS – As a founding voice in the world of holistic wellness, Canyon Ranch has the wisdom and expertise of spending nearly 40 years helping its guests achieve well-being. Now, the life-enhancement brand that’s built a devoted global following is going global itself.
Under the guidance of the brand’s new Chief Executive Officer, Susan E. Docherty, the company announced the development of its first-ever international destination, Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya, on a spectacular peninsula of the sun-kissed Aegean coast. The initial phase of the Canyon Ranch development, which will open in July 2016, will include a strikingly modern resort and luxury real estate offerings. The property will integrate the signature wellness and lifestyle programming that has earned Canyon Ranch a famously loyal clientele worldwide.
Canyon Ranch is proud to be the anchor brand of the Kaplankaya development, an exclusive waterfront enclave on the Turkish Riviera, near the city of Bodrum. A rarefied mix of natural beauty and contemporary design, Kaplankaya will emerge as a new, progressive destination on the Aegean coast, which is poised to become one of the world’s most sought-after year-round getaways.
The region is not only breathtaking in its natural beauty, surrounded by significant ruins and archeological sites, but has also been a center of healing since ancient times. This confluence of stunning landscape, rich Mediterranean history and thousands of years of healing tradition, make Kaplankaya an ideal setting for the inaugural international destination of Canyon Ranch.
The wellness resort and real estate offerings were meticulously designed by the world-renowned Barcelona-based architectural firm OAB (Office of Architecture in Barcelona) and principal architect Carlos Ferrater, the team behind the award-winning Barcelona Botanical Gardens and other landmark projects.
Honoring and embracing the natural beauty, tradition and landscape of the region, the dazzling plan includes a complex of brilliant guest quarters respectfully integrated into the topography. Geometric shapes, sustainable materials, and superb finishes will harmonize into a blissfully luxurious environment that also stimulates feelings of well-being and pure pleasure. The unique and environmentally conscious buildings will integrate seamlessly with the landscape.

Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya will have a total of 141 rooms –75 hotel rooms and suites as well as 66 exquisite enclave rooms and suites, all of which will have views of the Aegean Sea. Guests will have exclusive access to the 107,500 square foot, approximately 10,000 square meters, Canyon Ranch Spa, Fitness and Wellness Center. The oasis will feature 40 treatment rooms where guests will be able to enjoy rejuvenating treatments combining traditional and Eastern medicine practices for the complete integrative wellness experience Canyon Ranch is known for.
The resort will also include two restaurants, one in the hotel and another more casual option located adjacent to a pool and beach, which will offer a wide array of healthy and flavorful gourmet Mediterranean dishes showcasing the best local ingredients.
