Contemporary all-suite retreat opposite the Bodrum Peninsula's glitzy marina, with a cabana-strewn private beach
This contemporary 15-suite property feels more like a collection of private apartments than a traditional hotel. The low-rise cubic suites are arranged around a private beach dotted with chunky daybeds, cabanas and a sunbathing jetty, and the hotel backs onto the Palmarina, a glitzy harbor studded with megayachts. All suites come with large marble terraces that spill out onto a garden lapped by the Aegean Sea.
Bed and Bath
The suites start at 807 square feet and are cool, calm and contemporary, with marble floors and walls. A sliding door separates the living space from the sleeping space, where kingsize hypoallergenic beds are dressed in high-thread-count white linens. The neutral color scheme is broken up with contemporary artworks and oversize potted plants, and floor-to-ceiling windows let the light flood in. Walk-in wardrobes with plenty of hanging and storage space keep things clutter-free. In the marble bathrooms you'll find large tubs, powerful rain showers, his-and-hers sinks and Bulgari products. There’s also a small kitchenette complete with a Nespresso machine.
Breakfast can be enjoyed at Sait, a modern all-day dining restaurant overlooking the marina, in your suite (at no additional cost), or alfresco on the beach. The buffet includes fruit, local cheeses, homemade preserves and eggs made to order, plus local favorites like simit (a Turkish take on a sesame bagel) and menemen (peppery scrambled eggs). In the evening there's a host of eateries nearby and the freshly caught seafood served in many is a must-try. The small ESPA Spa offers a full range of facials and massages, or you can be scrubbed, soaped and massaged into a state of total relaxation in the hammam. For active types there's a well-equipped gym, and available water sports nearby including windsurfing and diving.
In the Area
The Palmarina Bodrum is packed with designer boutiques, clubs and restaurants, like Nobu, Cipriani and Billionaire. The cobblestone streets of old Yalikavak are lined with more budget-friendly shops, as well as alfresco bars and restaurants, like the popular Giggles and Café Minor, where you can listen to live jazz. It’s worth visiting Bodrum City, about 12 miles away, to explore the 15th-century castle, the harbor and the narrow streets of the old town. And in the quaint fishing village of Gumusluk, on the west coast of the peninsula, you can glimpse the remains of the ancient city of Myndos, which lies a few feet below the surface.
