On a hillside above the Bodrum Peninsula’s chichi North Shore, this chic boutique is the brainchild of imaginative Turkish-Canadian owners Ali and Esra. An unfailingly congenial atmosphere pervades this attractive complex of low-rise buildings, and the views stretch across citrus groves to the bright lights of Yalikavak and the Aegean Sea. The 20 guestrooms are split into four categories: Casual (with a mini–sitting area and a shared terrace); Functional (great for families, with two adjoining rooms and two bathrooms); Passionate (with a sea-view balcony and a wood-burning fireplace); and Junior Suite (a spacious open-plan layout with a common terrace). They’re all bright and stylish and barely a skip from the 25-meter pool, where you’ll find loungers and attentive staff aplenty. Dine alfresco on local seafood and tapas-style mezzes; the mucver (zucchini fritters) are a particular highlight. Join a yoga session in the verdant garden, where the wellness masseur works his magic. With all this on-site, there’s really no reason to stir, but trad/mod Yalikavak, a fishing-village-meets-mega-marina lined with boutiques and bars, is just a half-hour stroll away, the same amount of time it takes to reach Bodrum by car.
In the Area
After the high summer season, once the coast road has unclogged, venture west to Gumusluk’s quaint waterside tavernas or east to shiny-glam Turkbuku, home to legendary party venues like Macakizi. Make a day of it and immerse yourself in ancient ruins at Euromos (75 minutes) or Stratonikeia (90 minutes), or check out Bodrum’s own ancient wonder, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. Hire a boat to reach the peninsula’s quieter bays, or browse Bodrum’s bustling market for “genuine fake” accessories or hand-made leather sandals.
How to Get There
We had a wonderful 5 night stay at 4 reasons hotel, the staff were very helpful, any problems were resolved quickly, food was lovely, the pool and lounge areas beautiful, we all felt very relaxed and had a lovely stay.
The pool was lovely and warm.
Location was good, a mile from the fantastic Yalikavak marina, where there are plenty of places to eat and drink and generally have a good mooch around.
In particular from a staff point of view Gonca was very helpful and friendly to us.
I would definitely return to 4 reasons and Yalikavak
38 of us rented this boutique hotel for a 50th birthday celebration 5 day stay. We were not sure about the place on booking as it was arranged by a tour operator. However, all our apprehensions disappeared the minute we walked through the pretty gate onto the cobbled path. It was truly magical by day and by night. The hotel is at a height which allows panoramic views both during the day and night. Each room was very well maintained and modern. Although not much time was spent in doors as we all generally congregated around the pool and bar area. The children ranging in ages between 10 - 22 enjoyed the amenities ranging from the pool table to the swimming pool. The staff was incredible and catered to our every need including cooking specific dishes we asked for. It was truly a home away from home and I could not recommend it enough especially for a large party.
One of the best boutique hotels in turkey i will not choose any other hotel if i visit bodrum again, view rooms staff food everything was extraordinary.i highly recommend this unique hotel also it us close to the center of yalikavak
