Listen up spa lovers: ESPA has opened a brand new and super luxurious spa at D-Hotel Maris in Turkey. Set on a hillside in the Datca Peninsula nature preserve, the peaceful enclave is surrounded by pine forests, natural private beaches, small islands, and volcanic mountains with spectacular views of both the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. Famous for having the third highest concentration level of oxygen in the world, the Datca Peninsula is said to have natural healing properties that date back to the 12th Century BC and was once a sacred place of pilgrimage to the legendary Aphrodite of Knidos.
Set in the resort gardens, ESPA at D-Hotel Maris offers signature treatments, seven spa rooms, private spa suite, and heat experiences (including a vitality pool), contemporary indoor pool, sauna, steam room and relaxation lounge. Relaxing at a Hammam (Turkish Bath/Steam Bath) is an essential part of a visit to Turkey and ESPA Hammam rituals include a warming steam prior to treatments like the Indulgence Hammam Ritual (a total body experience that caresses the skin and revitalizes the body). Signature treatments include the Sea Salt & Oil Scrub with Aegean Sea Shell Massage, the Purva Karma Four Handed Massage, and the Active Hydration Facial.
D-Hotel Maris has 200 luxurious and elegantly appointed rooms, all with exceptional mountain or sea views and most Deluxe rooms feature a bathtub on the balcony. The Presidential Suite has a roof sauna and the Exclusive Villa has its own private Hammam. There are four gourmet restaurants and seven cocktail or wine bars from which to choose.
