Iconic Mykonos beach club, Scorpios, has revealed its expansion plans, with the opening of new venues in Turkey and Mexico
Renowned as a Mykonos institution where DJs such as Rufus Du Sol have headlined, exclusive beach club Scorpios has announced it is expanding. In June 2024, Scorpios will open a venue in Bodrum, Turkey, with another establishment set to follow in Tulum, Mexico.
Taking the experience beyond Greek shores, Scorpios Bodrum will showcase two restaurants, a clubhouse, Scorpios’ signature beach club and 12 private suites, adorned with outdoor pools and lounge areas, along a lush, 75-thousand square metre exclusive peninsula. This marks Scorpios’ first venture into accommodation and 24/7 hospitality.
The design philosophy behind each Scorpios venue pays homage to traditional craftsmanship and the surrounding landscape, with each venue enriched by local cultural influences. In Bodrum, the collaboration between Scorpios and architecture studio, Geomim – along with interiors by Lambs and Lions in partnership with Annabell Kutucu and Studio McBride – highlights the simplicity and authenticity of natural materials.
Founders Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel introduced Scorpios in 2015, envisioning it as a modern interpretation of an ancient Greek ‘gathering space’. A destination for artists and creatives to connect and collaborate, Scorpios places creativity, art and music at its core.
“Scorpios has always created inspirational experiences through rituals that unite human connection with art, music and nature. In these deep moments of togetherness, we lift each other’s spirits. This is what makes the Scorpios experience so energising and enriching,” said Thomas Heyne, Co-Founder of Scorpios.
The Bodrum venue will also feature a unique wellbeing program called ‘Inner Gardens,’ where ancient healing techniques, contemporary knowledge and cultural practices are celebrated. The program will take place at the brand’s landmark Ritual Space, where guests can also experience ‘mindful movement’, ice plunges, breathwork and sound meditation. The dining menu, meanwhile, is aligned with the original Scorpios food concept, fusing Eastern Mediterranean cuisine with local Turkish influences.
Scorpios Bodrum will feature a revolving artist residency in collaboration with the brand’s music label, Scorpios Music. The expansion will also focus on aiming to grow its record label and invest in supporting experimental electronic musicians. Scorpios will facilitate collaborations between emerging talents and established names – namely Keinemusik, Sébastien Leger and Bedouin, showcase monthly performances and launch an annual arts festival that will celebrate creative experimentation across music, wellbeing and hospitality.
Scorpios Bodrum is set to open in June 2024, bookings for available now.
