Art & Culture
Guests can enjoy an immersive journey through contemporary art curated by Zeynep Utku, founder of Arts Connected and graduate of Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design.

As a central figure on the international art scene, recognised and applauded for his corten steel sculptures, Bernar Venet has created one of his largest-scale monumental sculptures to date with the construction of two rising vertical arcs at the entrance to the resort’s marina.

In addition to this, Venet’s work appears throughout the property, with his sketches adorning the walls of the public spaces, as well as a number of his sculptures. There is also an exhibition showcasing his works, marking the first time this collection has been displayed in Türkiye.

Refik Anadol, the Türkiye-born Los Angeles-based new media creative, who, for much of the past decade, has hypnotised the world with his swirling A.I. art landscapes, is showcasing one of his arresting installations in the resort’s lobby. Anadol’s digital artwork has been inspired by data collected from the seas and is displayed on a giant screen.

The property is home to two art galleries where through Arts Connected, Utku has partnered with BASTOK LESSEL, founded by Tom David Bastok and Dylan Lessel. A dynamic exhibition programme is planned featuring blue-chip artworks which is also open to non-residents. A pioneering residency programme is currently in the works, kicking off with innovative Canadian artist Chloe Wise.

An inspiring itinerary of local cultural experiences has been curated, providing the opportunity to delve into Türkiye’s rich heritage, including visits to Ephesus Ancient City (UNESCO World Heritage), The House of the Virgin Mary and Sirince Village and Pamukkale Travertines and Hierapolis Ancient City.

Rates start from €875/approx. £750 based on two people sharing a luxury suite with a sea view, including breakfast. Access to the Maxxi Land Kid’s Club is complimentary for children aged 3-12 years old.
