SEA, HISTORY, PORT, HOTEL, SHOPPING, GASTRONOMY… ALL AT ANTHAVEN

Aspat has always been a port city, a settlement, and a center of attraction throughout history. Anthaven, ‘the apple of our eye’, built on this heavenly bay where the energy of Mount Aspat is felt, has a unique character, identity and story. Everyone here feels like they are living in a small fishing town with canal houses. Anthaven is like a small town with its own port, its own beach, market, restaurants, cafes and hotel. Moreover, there are new brands in its market now.

Aspat Bay, which is praised to the skies by the famous traveler Evliya Çelebi in his book Seyahatname, has one of the most beautiful seashores of the Bodrum peninsula, which was defined as ‘the land of eternal blue’ by Homer. Abundant in oxygen and peace, the bay has the most gorgeous shades of blue.

With the Island of Kos to the front and Aspat Mountain behind, the bay really gives the feeling of a hidden paradise. The known history of this green bay, which is mentioned in the Çökertme folk song and is now a frequented place for surfers, dates back to the 7th century BC. Known to have been an important port city both in ancient times and during the Byzantine period, those who visit this bay once will definitely want to return.

This lush green bay, which is mentioned in the folk song of Çökertme and is now frequented by surfers, dates back to the 7th century BC. The bay contains many medieval ruins and was known to be an important port city both in ancient and Byzantine times. Those who visit here once definitely want to return.

Besides the many things that make Aspat special in the Aegan Region including the ruins of the Byzantine baths on Mount Aspat and the Çıfıt Castle on top of the mountain, you can find organic vegetables and fruits that have been grown in the surrounding region, at the Akyarlar neighborhood market, which can be reached in just three minutes and is open once a week. One of the most beautiful places in this bay is also Anthaven.

Anthaven, where life began in June 2020 is not an ordinary housing project. It is a place with wonderful nature, a peaceful and quiet life, a professional service concept not only in summer but throughout the year. We offer new living space for Bodrum residents with its interior harbor for boats, its beach and nature, water sports, basketball and volleyball courts, fitness and spa, Radisson Collection Hotel, and the bazaar.

 A PROJECT WITH ‘ZERO WASTE’ CERTIFICATION

Our most important service is the production of drinking water and the recycling of wastewater. By preserving this bay’s paradise image, we have been able to sustainably meet the water needs of the trees. Thanks to the Zero Waste Management System we have established, we were eligible to receive a ‘Zero Waste Certificate’ from the Muğla Governorship Environment and Urbanization Provincial Directorate. Our telecommunication infrastructure is also very special, as every house receives internet service with a bandwidth well above the metropolitan average. We have installed a high-level security system to maintain this tranquility.

Anthaven, which was built by adhering to traditional Aegean city-building elements has a feature that makes it unique. It is the canals with boat cruising and residential piers, as well as the large mooring area used for boat docking. Almost everyone who owns a house in Anthaven wants to be near the sea. All of our residents are either interested or eager to start fishing or yachting and in this regard, the Anthaven Yacht Club Association was established.

BLUE SEA, ‘YELLOW SUMMER’

Some of our residents who bought property here to get away from the stress of the big city, stay in both the summer and winter, while others just take every opportunity to escape and breathe a sigh of relief, as they can continue their big city lifestyles here. Many of our residents are owners, managers, doctors, with their families.

Bodrum’s famous autumn ‘yellow summer’ is completely different in Anthaven. The well-known hillside breeze, which lasts all summer and allows everyone to breathe easier in the heat, leaves the bay at this time and the air temperature and humidity are perfect. Those who have experienced this weather will want to spend their winters here too. Those who love town life can spare more quality time for themselves and their loved ones. The agenda for our residents was around the pandemic last summer, however they felt safe here. Regular walks and individual sports activities every morning made our residents happy and those who have made use of the opportunity to work from home, say that they will look for a way to continue.

ANTHAVEN YACHT CLUB

The flag of our yacht club, which began accepting members in April, is an Aspat girl on a white background. Aspat Girl, the symbol of the tragic story of Halil and beautiful Gülsüm in the Çökertme folk song, which has been handed down generation to generation in the region, became the symbol of Anthaven. To be a member of the club all you need is to be a resident of Anthaven and have a passion for the sea, you don’t need to own a boat. Our purpose is to support everyone in a hobby that enables them to engage with the sea, be it kayaking, surfing, or yachting. There are events planned including rallies, trips with our boats, and fishing tournaments. We will arrange a lot of activities from kayaking races to surfing competitions in the bay. While making the love of yachting our main goal, we will protect our bays and seas, especially Aspat, against all kinds of pollution.
