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.

Thank to staff that made our holiday so so special with the kids
I stayed 5 days and from the moment i stepped in till we said goodbye, there was nothing but excellence, at every where i have been. It was a pure flawless holiday. The resort itself is so beautiful. All the staff members were very nice, especially very helpfull and caring. The food was amazing! If you go there, make sure to experience at least one night at every each one of the restaurants. The Beach, spa, and the activities we had were all amazing. What a great operation. Thank you Harun. You and MOBOD definitely come out on top!
We stayed at MOBOD for a week in July 2019, having visited for 9 nights in June 2018. This place never ceases to amaze!
The luxurious apartments (hotel rooms) are built to the highest standard and quality. Everything everywhere is impeccable, which is down to the owner and his awesome General Manager - Harun Dursun.
The food offering and atmosphere are delightful (with the exception of the outsourced restaurant - Kurochan by Ioki - which perhaps lacks an edge).
The SPA and gym are world class.
Staff members throughout, are extremely helpful and friendly and they really do go out of their way to help you.
We (my wife and 11-year old twins) cannot wait to go back to "Paradise Bay" .... For now we will savour our memories of Assaggio, Bodrum Balikcisi and Sofra.......!!! Thank you Harun and MOBOD.
