Scorpios announces global expansion

Scorpios is expanding globally with a bold new vision, establishing two new locations in addition to its flagship base in Mykonos.

In June 2024, Scorpios will land in Bodrum, later followed by Tulum, with more locations to follow in the future. Each new outpost will resonate with the cultural energy of its region, interwoven with the Scorpios alchemy of music, art, food and wellbeing, envisioned through the creative lens of their inspired community of artists and makers.

On a lush, 75,000m2 exclusive peninsula, Scorpios Bodrum will house two restaurants, a club house, Scorpios’ signature beach club, and several brand firsts — a Ritual Space, as well as 12 private suites, each with their own outdoor pool and lounge area. This marks Scorpios’ first venture into accommodation and 24/7 high-end hospitality. Scorpios Bodrum will feature a wealth of cultural programming and a revolving artist residency in collaboration with the brand’s music label, Scorpios Music.

A relaxed, communal culture of sharing and togetherness lies at the heart of dining in Bodrum. The menu is aligned with the original Scorpios food concept, braiding in inspiration from the Eastern Mediterranean with local Turkish influences. Scorpios Bodrum will also be bookable for elevated private gatherings that combine the Scorpios aesthetic with the vision of its guests.

The design of each Scorpios property celebrates traditional craftsmanship and fosters an environment of effortless ease, infused with influences from the local culture and landscape. In Bodrum, Scorpios is co-created by architecture studio Geomim, with interiors by Lambs and Lions, in collaboration with Annabell Kutucu and Studio McBride. The design ethos honours imperfect simplicity and the honesty of natural materials.

Founded by Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel in 2015, Scorpios emerged as a contemporary interpretation of the ancient Greek concept agora — a gathering place for artists, free spirits and change-makers to connect, collaborate, and celebrate under the open sky.

Scorpios will also elevate the innovative electronic music that has become synonymous with the brand by renewing its focus on championing an experimental sound, with emerging talents coming together with some of the world’s most established names. For example, the most recent season in Mykonos saw leading musicians and DJs perform — including the likes of Keinemusik, Sébastien Leger and Bedouin. The brand will continue to grow its own successful record label, Scorpios Music, with monthly label showcases, an artist booking agency and new artistic collaborations and residencies coming up in the future.

Collaborating with the world’s brightest creatives across music, wellbeing, and hospitality, Heyne and Hertel are also intensifying Scorpios’ exploration of the arts with Encounters — the brand’s annual festival for creative experimentation. The inaugural 2023 edition brought leading contemporary artists including Refik Anadol to Mykonos, with unprecedented co-creation between digital art, music, AI and indigenous communities. Scorpios will take this concept forward to new creative heights and locations in 2024.
