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
Very friendly hospitality, amazing view and excellent service. Staff are very helpful and friendly (Ozga and Ogun)... Highly recommended hotel. Relaxing sea view, clean rooms, it is close to the bodrum city and all clubs.
This is a solid 4-star hotel. It has big, clean rooms, nice pools, good staff, decent food - GREAT views.
Location is only thing I would complain about - do your research if planning a stay in Bodrum, as I think there are many "inlets" and it makes a difference. This hotel has no nightlife and is not within walking distance of any. Our taxis into "town" to go for dinner etc. felt long (maybe 15 minute drive). In retrospect, would have stayed closer to that.
It is definitely worth going to the beach club one day - they have a free shuttle to take you there. It is built into an outcropping of rocky cliffs, and has tons of beds for sunning or reading in the shade, as well as a dock to walk out to for swimming and a full bar. Lots of fun.
TIP: do not bother booking a massage here, all of ours were terrible.
I’ve stayed in this hotel before and it was a good experience. However, on my last stay, they gave me a poor quality room which I was not happy about it. The staff was good but the management was rude.
