Coming soon: New luxury resort on Turkey's Göcek coastline

Boutique retreat Ahãma is scheduled to open in August 2024

New luxury resort Ahãma is set to open on Turkey's Göcek coastline this summer.

Scheduled to launch in August 2024, the resort is positioned on the beach in a secluded bay, surrounded by 11 hectares of protected forest. 

A 25-minute car ride from the nearest airport, Ahãma will open with 30 "cabanas" and one villa, along with four dining venues, an open-air yoga shala, a gym, a massage area, and a pool, apparently shaped like an inverted temple.

Ahãma Cabanas

Each of the five two-bedroom cabanas and 25 one-bedroom cabanas overlooks the forest or the sea. The spacious villa offers three bedrooms, an infinity pool and a private dock.

All guests will experience "the best that nature has to offer" and Lycian heritage, which characterises this part of Turkey. According to historical record, the ancient Lycians that once inhabited the area were known as the ‘People of Light’; as such, light has been harnessed in all aspects of the architecture and design.  

The aesthetic is enhanced by curated artworks, repurposed and artisanal furniture, and individual pieces sourced from vintage fairs and art galleries in Istanbul and London.

Interior touches also include the handmade tiles and kilim rugs crafted specifically for Ahãma by Turkish artisans.

The resort’s wellness programme is led by Natalie Garih. It will offer an immersive journey; from the moment a guest arrives, they’ll be encouraged to explore secluded meditation spots in the surrounding forest and "embark on a path toward inner peace and revitalisation". 

In 2025, Ahãma will welcome a wellness centre and spa, a Mezcal bar, a concept store, and a multi-functional Sound Temple designed by renowned Mexican architect and designer Hector Esrawe for sound healing ceremonies.
