Overlooking tranquil Bitez Bay, on the Bodrum Peninsula, the Doria is a sleek retreat that blends contemporary design and traditional Mediterranean style. The open-plan lobby/lounge has a relaxed seaside feel, with light wood floors, coral armchairs and colorful wall prints. The guestrooms are decked out in a similar bright and breezy style with pale wood furniture, ocean-blue throws and a private balcony with garden or sea views. The minimalist bathrooms feature rainfall showers and marble walls. Sun seekers can spend the day by the outdoor pool, enjoy a cocktail at the Club House or head down to the hotel’s private beach, where you can order a drink right from your lounge chair. Dine on Mediterranean and Aegean dishes at the Blu restaurant, an alfresco eatery overlooking the bay. For a spot of pampering, the Doria Spa offers a range of massage treatments and has a luxe Turkish bath.
In the Area
Bitez Bay is a 10-minute drive from the bustling center of Bodrum, home to ancient sites and colorful markets. Explore the 15th-century castle and the Underwater Archaeology Museum, and stroll around the two pretty harbors and the old town’s narrow, shop-lined streets. Farther afield is the ancient wonder of Ephesus, which can be a daytrip arranged through the hotel. You can also book a boat trip to the Greek island of Kos from the Bodrum marina.
How to Get There
We came, knowing it was out of season, so it was lovely and quiet, the room was super comfortable and a really good size. Amazing views. Decor and set up was very professional and well done. I can imagine it being very different in summer, maybe a little more noise and a little more warmtn (that's the weather - not the staff!). Would happily recommend. Definitely come in off season if you're looking for a classy place that is quiet. I think for us, we would have preferred somewhere more central given how quiet it is at this time of year, but that's a reflection on us and not on the hotel at all. In summer, this place would be a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of tourists in the main towns.
Stayed with family,2 teens and a 10 year old for 4 nights. Very quiet in Oct, we were almost the only ones there - but that’s Bodrum that time of year. Still worth it to go. Good rooms, well renovated. Nice view. I wouldn’t call this a 5 star. It’s really a very good 4 plus. Friendly staff and very clean. The big surprise was the half board. The food was fabulous! Sea bass lovely, steaks tender. Wine inexpensive. Made the stay. Do the Jeep safari a great day out and it’s cheap. Final analysis is if you get a good rate and we recommend the half board you will be happy. More boutique/smaller style than the big all inclusives. Depends on what you want really. Fresh nice simple style.
The Doria hotel is located in Bitez which is about 10 to 15 minutes taxi ride from Bodrum town. The hotel has two pools both of which have amazing views , one looks out over the Agean and is located at the restaurant with the second near the gym/spa with views overlooking the local town and sea. The restaurant serves very good meals and is where breakfast is also served. The rooms are of a good size with comfortable beds. The hotel sits at the top of a very steep driveway which has a conveniance store, restaurant and bar at the bottom. There is a larger supermarket about 4 minutes walk and the local township with shops, restaurants ten minutes walk. The hotel also has a shuttle service to its own swimming area which is a rock shelf type area onthe sea with loungers and a rstaurant/bar. Had a very enjoyable stay here.
I stayed here twice, rooms are clean and big with a beautiful view on sunrise..their private beach is around 7-10 minutes with arranged transfer to/from, but it is closed after middle of Sept. The hotel is far from noisy places, so it is good for a relaxed rest
Stayed here in September 2018,This is a brilliant hotel ,with stunning views over the Aegian ,been to Turkey many times ,this is by far the best hotel,it takes you a couple of days to get over the stunning sea views it has,the rooms are spotless and if you get a sea view the views are stunning. The credit has to go to the staff ,who are genuinely friendly,and helpful.I hope the owners of this hotel realise what good staff they have,from the cleaners to the management.Really enjoyed our stay thankyou.
