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.
How to Get There
The hotel is with beautiful architecture and stylish design. Room’s yard is spacious. Though travelling in October, Blue Beach is still wonderful which I love the most in this hotel. Staffs are very friendly and attentive which made my pleasant stay for that four days. Everything was just perfect. Will definitely revisit this hotel in next summer!
You connect a certain (outstanding) standard with MO hotels, which is fully met. The suites and villas are amazingly executed and outstandingly designed. The inside stairway from the lobby to the restaurant is absolutely impressive. The kids club is good. The morning buffet is very diverse. Staff is nice but could improve. All in all; we had a great time with the kids and will definitely return
If heaven on earth exists, it is there !!! Excellent food, beautifull location, the staff is so friendly you can hardly believe it. Never seen before. Lots of opportunities on the water. Only minus point is the neighbourhood, outside the resort you need a taxi to get somewhere.
