Built into rock formations and designed with green roofs (and biophilic walls), the resort is home to many of Turkey's botanic species (nature's aromatherapy of olive, cypress, oleander, sage and thyme). As shared custodians of this extraordinary setting, we're careful to conserve the raw beauty of our secluded beaches, dramatic landscape and local heritage.

As we are committed to wellness and sustainability, we are continually developing new initiatives to maximize the health of our guests and ecosystems.
The resort’s organic farms and gardens play an important role in our Eat With Six Senses approach to food and drink. Through growing much of our own fruit and vegetables on site we can ensure that our guests are getting fresh, whole, healthy, high-quality food. Additionally, we are surrounded by a number of local gardens, vineyards and farms from which can responsibly source the freshest vegetables, fruit and herbs for our guests. We are slowly turning our old growth wild olive trees into an edible forest following an organic agricultural model.
We are currently establishing Earth Lab, our ecology area where our all sustainability initiatives, activities, innovations and partnerships are shared with our guests.
By filtering and bottling our own still and sparkling water, we have reduced the carbon footprint associated with the packaging and transporting of drinking water. By using only glass water bottles, we eliminate all plastic bottles from resort operations, part of an effort to be single-use plastic free.
We encourage our younger guests to learn something new by sparking their curiosity and creativity in a fun and playful way. Our back-to-nature activities teach them how to reuse and recycle, plant a seed and take care of the plant to connect with our local environment. It is also possible to spot wood peckers, squirrels, rabbits, foxes, turtles and even the odd wild boar.
Working directly within our community, we make positive impacts by employing and purchasing locally and by giving back through education and green projects.
The villagers in our local community produce eggs, milk, various kinds of cheese, olives, olive oil, homemade sourdough bread and two different types of yogurt. We plan to provide these natural products for our guests and are currently waiting for them to be certified to meet national regulations.
Once approved, community producers will see an increase in market value and sustainability of their products at local bazaars and eventually at a national level. You'll be first in line for nutritious and delicious goodies too!
Sustainable communication encourages two-way exchange between generations and brings benefits to everyone. We invite respected elders from a local nursing home for lunch in our resort, spend quality time with them, support their special needs and provide them with a tea-making machine. Recently, some of our hosts visited their facility and enjoyed a tea-and-talk time. We will continue to schedule these visits as regular events.
