Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya has officially opened on the Aegean coast of Turkey, near the city of Bodrum. The 141-room resort is the first Canyon Ranch property to open outside the U.S., and is an anchor brand in the new exclusive Kaplankaya waterfront development. 

The 107,500-square-foot Canyon Ranch Spa, Fitness + Healing Center is the centerpiece of the resort. It offers 38 treatment rooms, and Canyon Ranch's approach of combining traditional and Eastern medicine practices will be available. 

In terms of lodging, there are 75 guest rooms and 66 luxury Ridge rooms, each of the latter offering views of the Aegean Sea. Among resort activities offered are mountain-biking tours, sailing and wind surfing, helicopter tours, scuba diving, farmers' market visits with a Canyon Ranch nutritionist, neuromuscular assessments, Kinesis and stress management. 

Two restaurants are on-site, Sage + Sea and Wild Thyme, the latter a casual option adjacent to the pool. Both feature healthy gourmet Mediterranean dishes that feature local ingredients.
