XANADU ISLAND RESORT
Location: Bodrum, Turkey
Scale: 15 acres, 225 key resort hotel
Client: Aydiner Construction Co.
Design Team: DSA + Cloward H20 + 40NORTH
Construction Cost: Confidential
Scope: Full Services
This project is a 225 key resort on the Aegean Sea, near the small village of Akyarlar, Turkey. This new hotel property is located on a small peninsula located an hour south of Bodrum. The property has a dramatic coastline and offers excellent views of both the Turkish coast and the Greek Island of Kos.
The concept of the resort is of a contemporary resort in the Bodrum-style of southwest Turkey, incorporated into a mature olive grove which serves as the backdrop for the entire property. More than 150 mature olive trees were transplanted from Urla into the resort – some are more than 400 years old. 40NORTH was involved in all levels of design for the project, from conceptual master planning and concept development and style, through detailed design and construction administration. The project opened to guests in Summer 2010.
