Canyon Ranch Announces First International Wellness Resort in Turkey

Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya

Wellness hotelier Canyon Ranch has announced plans to open its first international destination resort, Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya, on Turkey's Aegean coast, it announced this week.

"Canyon Ranch is launching onto the global stage with Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya in Turkey," Canyon Ranch CEO Susan Docherty said in a statement. "With its breathtakingly beautiful natural landscape and ancient, healing lands, [Turkey] is the idyllic location for our first international immersion destination and will redefine the concept of a luxury wellness experience."

Scheduled to open in July 2016, the new resort will have 141 rooms and suites -- all of which will have views of the Aegean Sea -- as well as two restaurants and a 107,500-square-foot spa, fitness, and wellness center.

Although meeting space was not announced, Canyon Ranch said the resort will cater to both intimate retreats and larger groups by offering a range of wellness and team-building activities, planning healthy menus, and helping planners arrange agendas to maximize energy and performance.

Notably, the resort also will be available to groups that wish to arrange a complete property buyout.
