Overlooking a private bay on Turkey’s white-hot Bodrum Peninsula, this luxe resort aims to please all its well-heeled guests with a choice of 12 different suite categories and lavish apartments with up to four bedrooms. The vibe blends a high-end Asian feel with exotic Turkish accents, and most rooms take full advantage of the resort’s waterfront setting with floor-to-ceiling windows. The wining and dining options feel endless, from casual Mediterranean to haute Japanese. Got a sweet tooth? You’ll love the Terrace Lounge and the Mandarin Cake Shop, which both offer homemade treats along with sea views. The sublime spa is spread over three levels and offers a range of signature Mandarin therapies, as well as locally influenced treatments, like the Olive Branch Journey, which involves olive leaves picked from the garden, and a hammam experience, inspired by the centuries-old Turkish steam room tradition.
In the Area
If you can drag yourself away from the hotel’s two private beaches on the Aegean Sea, it’s worth exploring this stunning coastline further, preferably from a gulet, a traditional Turkish wooden boat. Blue Cruise Bodrum specializes in tours on these romantic vessels, either private charters or day cruises. Head into the town of Bodrum and party the night away onboard a different kind of vessel, the tacky-but-fabulous Club Catamaran, which claims to be Turkey’s only floating nightclub, or boogie down at the popular open-air Halikarnas club. If culture is more your thing, explore the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology, which incorporates the Bodrum Castle of the Knights of St. John and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Special mention to the Human Resources team who sourced Eylul & Maurice as they have provided exemplary service.
We really enjoyed our stay at the MO Bodrum. The staff made us feel very relaxed and at home with their friendly and cheerful manner. The landscape and nature is stunning, with amazing views from the rooms and all over the resort. The interiors and architecture of the main hotel building and other facilities were very impressive, with a lot of attention to detail. The rooms were spacious and extremely clean, some with their own private pool as well. Food was delicious, from the room service to restaurants. We particularly loved the breakfast live pastry and coffee stations, and Blue Beach club for lunch.
Overall, it exceeded our expectations and feels like paradise on earth. We want to thank the hotel staff for their hospitality, and very much look forward to my upcoming wedding at the resort this summer!
We stayed at this resort for 4 days last week with our 3 children.
The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. Always greeting you with a genuine smile and warmth.
The rooms, restaurants, spa and entire resort is the cleanist I have seen anywhere in the world. They do a fantastic job of maintaining it.
We had an incident where our youngest child needed a nebulizer as he wasn't feeling well. We always travel with one but it got burnt with the different voltage in America and Turkey. We informed the staff and they immediately made it a priority and kept updating us on having it fixed/replaced. They eventually gave us a brand new one with a 220V within 3 hours. We were so grateful as it is quite stressful traveling with a sick child, but with MOD's staff and general manager, Harun, making our issue his priority, we felt much more comfortable.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Incredible hospitality meets with heaven! What can I say more...Perfect location, a calm bay , perfect arthitecture, staff beyond expectations, very good food...You feel very comfortable there. every single detail has been thought. Room with sea view and huge balcony was very very nice! I recommend everyone!
