Do you need some time to unwind and find yourself?

This summer, find the freedom to be you with Azure Retreats‘ first yoga and wellness retreat for gay men in Turgutreis, Turkey. With hosts Kurtis and Stephen, both with years of hospitality experience, you’re sure to feel right at home. 

The gay men’s retreat takes place from the 27 August until 3 September 2019. Your package includes full board, with your choice of a single or double suite room, all with beautiful views and full air conditioning.

For those of you really looking for an authentic wellness experience, there are the luxury lotus belle tents. Both options are perfect for guests travelling alone, or for couples and friends.

All meals are prepared on-site: 100% vegetarian-friendly and fully delicious. There’s no alcohol served in the Azure Hotel, and you’ll really feel the benefits after just a week without.

Azure’s yoga instructor, Dean Dalton, caters to all skill levels. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, he’ll be on hand to help you realign and unwind.

Azure’s top priority is your relaxation, and their instructors will be as attentive as you need. You’ll never be pushed too hard. 

Start your retreat with a pamper at the hammam Turkish baths, complete with a skin exfoliation session. You’ll soon be primed and ready for soaking in the sun.

Want to see the sights? You can choose between two lovely day trips.

If you love the sea, you can spend a day sailing around the Bodrum Peninsula. Sunbathe on the boat or take a dip in the crystal clear waters.

For the wine lovers among you, there’s a wine tasting tour to Mumcular’s Mor Skalim Vineyard, where you can taste the grapes, take in the sights and even try the wine!

If you prefer a quieter holiday, the beautiful Azure Hotel has plenty of options. You can take a dip in the pool, relax on the sun loungers, cool off in the shade, or go exploring to see those breath-taking views.

The beach is only a short trip away, so be sure to take a visit. If you want to go exploring, the beautiful fishing village Gumusluk is round the corner, with a charming artisan market for you to peruse. 

Take your holiday with Azure at your pace, relax and find the time to be yourself with their first gay men’s retreat.


Places are limited so book sooner rather than later. Each place costs £700, and couples are more than welcome. Your full package with Azure Retreats includes: 

  • Airport transfers from Bodrum Milas Airport.
  • A 7-day stay at the Azure Hotel.

Azure Retreats

Azure Retreats was established from a dream to create a safe, welcoming space for people from all walks of life. With a beautiful mountain backdrop the beautiful view alone is enough to take anyone’s breath away.

Being situated just a short drive away from the beach doesn’t hurt either.

The Azure Hotel hotel has a maximum capacity of 20, so their yoga instructors can dedicate time to everyone, and you won’t have to worry about the crowds.
