An ultra-all-inclusive stay at five-star Bodrum beach resort on Turkey’s glittering Turquoise coast
Cherished by jet-setting celebs and the cool set for its unique bohemian vibe, on-trend bars and clubs, turquoise waters and sparkling sands, the celebrity-draped Aegean town of Bodrum is fabulously set on south-west Turkey’s Turquoise Coast.
Small wonder then, that this statement-making and supersized five-star sleep with its own private beach seals the deal for luxury-seekers. There are two outdoor pools, 10 bars, gourmet thrills by way of a buffet restaurant and several à la carte dining spots, a sublime state-of-the-art spa for indulgent treatments and beauty rituals, and a first-rate kids club with age-specific activities for tots, teens, and those in-between.
With many framing of the spacious guest rooms overlooking the sparkling Aegean Sea, you can look forward to designer-led décor, stunning tiled headboards, sleek fixtures and fittings, sumptuous soft furnishings, and up-to-date gadgetry. Most fabulous, though, are the private balconies or terraces where you can while away the hours contemplating which of the many complimentary sporting activities you’ll get stuck into next.
Each of the 347 spacious rooms, suites and villas is finished to a high spec, with all assuring designer-led décor, stunning tiled headboards, sleek fixtures and fittings, and sumptuous soft furnishings. The well-sized Deluxe Sea View room frames the glittering sea perfectly and sleeps two, while the larger Family suite has two bedroom and two bathrooms, sleeping up to two adults and two children. Both room types have a minibar, tea and coffee-making facilities, flatscreen TV with satellite channels and music stations, and a private balcony or terrace.
Delectable cuisine reveals itself at the all-day Sini buffet restaurant and at several à la carte dining spots. Savour modern Turkish fare and fresh seafood at Zeytin Restaurant, relish Lebanese cooking at Layali Restaurant, or enjoy Far East-inspired dishes at Aja Restaurant - a dinner-only spot with sushi and Teppanyaki tables. Please note that à la carte restaurants must be pre-booked. There are also 10 bars and pubs dotted throughout the resort, including the Dem Tea House for speciality teas and coffees, Su Bar for poolside refreshments, and Mojito Bar for made-to-order cocktails and live stage shows.
Open daily, the sprawling state-of-the-art Rixos Royal SPA will impress the most savvy of spa-goers with its indoor pool, Turkish bath, Finnish bath, steam room, relaxation area and Vitamin Bar. There’s a dedicated Massage Parlour for Bali, Thai or Indian massage, Turkish bath rubbing and foaming, seaweed therapy and other spa rituals, a Moss Room for skin-firming and anti-cellulite treatments, and a beauty centre for pedicures, manicures, skin care and hairdressing. The resort also has an on-site fitness centre. Please note that all treatments are chargeable.
Set on 187,000-square-metres of private land on Turkey’s south-west coast, you’ll be just 10 miles from the centre of Bodrum - the celebrity-draped Aegean town famed for its bohemian vibe, trendy nightlife, turquoise waters, and glittering sands. Highlights include gawping at multi-millionaires mooring their gleaming yachts in the marina, visiting the stylish village of Türkbükü on the north side of the Bodrum Peninsula, posing to perfection at Bitez Beach, and marvelling at the 15th century St Peter’s Castle that’s home to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. Further Bodrum thrills include stocking up on designer goodies at the Karada Marina Shopping Mall, hitting the drinking dens on Bar Street, and getting a cultural fix at the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
