The region’s stand-out resort hotel, startlingly Moorish-modern in appearance, is set in its own bay on the Bodrum Peninsula’s southern shore. The facilities include an award-winning spa, extensive water sports and a restaurant for just about every mood.

The 150-plus rooms combine a plantation-style feel – muted colours, floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies – with a generous sense of space. There are good kids’ facilities too, including a dedicated children’s restaurant. And though the beaches are hardly exceptional, this is an excellent resort for those in need of serious pampering who also wish to be within reach of Bodrum’s city vibe.

Surrounding area

The hotel stands close to the shore at the back of a wide bay which otherwise remains in its natural state – an arid landscape of rock-strewn Mediterranean scrub.

The shore tends to be rocky, with some low cliffs, but there are also a few sandy coves; a five-minute path leads west through the grounds to the largest of these coves, the hotel’s private beach.

Bodrum Bazaar

Bodrum, Aegean Region, Turkey[8.5 miles]

This tangle of streets is shopping heaven, if you don’t mind the odd bit of pressure selling. Everything from kitchen utensils to kids’ clothes is on offer, along with fresh produce, ceramics, jewellery and the ubiquitous fake handbags and clothes. Barter hard.
