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
The positive things about this hotel is the rooms size its specious and the infinity pool with amazing view.
Only three staff with smiley faces and welling to help you yet the rest are kinda rude and forced to work.
The buffet is small and basic no variety at all.
We wanted to try the spa on the last day no one were at the desk we waited and no one show up, so unfortunately i dont know about this service.
The hotel has hill at its entrance and no steps be aware about it.
Over all its normal stay nothing wow, they can improve their services and employees as they have awesome view.
On arrival we were shown our room, sea view. The view was a a partial sea view with a balcony . However the bath had mould on the sealant and was black in parts, not acceptable. We then shown another room at the side of the hotel overlooking the building site with dust billowing, which was really taking the mickey. No other rooms available as the hotel was full. Plainly untrue as it was half full at best..
We knew what was coming and for £190 extra we got a great room, marvellous sea view and very clean. It was an upgrade .No free upgrades here.
The hotel is at the top of a steep hill. We are in our sixties and walking wasn't an option in the heat. We took taxis ito Betiz, Gumbet and Bodrum for evening meals.
Gumbet is a bit shabby would recommend Bitez for our age group.Bodrum has lots of great choices.
We had one evening meal in the hotel and that was very good.
Breakfast was good but you have to talk to staff if you want extras such as omelettes,scrambled eggs etc. They were very obliging.
The beach club is lovely and a mini bus runs back and fore. Unfortunately they decided to shut it with three days of out break left. This was silly as others were still open and the demand was there .
There are two outside pools but only the "bottom" one was open due to demand I guess in the "full" hotel.
Nice stay, beach club closing was a disappointment. Paying extra for an acceptable room left a bit of a bad taste.
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.
