This contemporary 15-suite property feels more like a collection of private apartments than a traditional hotel. The low-rise cubic suites are arranged around a private beach dotted with chunky daybeds, cabanas and a sunbathing jetty, and the hotel backs onto the Palmarina, a glitzy harbor studded with megayachts. All suites come with large marble terraces that spill out onto a garden lapped by the Aegean Sea.
Bed and Bath
The suites start at 807 square feet and are cool, calm and contemporary, with marble floors and walls. A sliding door separates the living space from the sleeping space, where kingsize hypoallergenic beds are dressed in high-thread-count white linens. The neutral color scheme is broken up with contemporary artworks and oversize potted plants, and floor-to-ceiling windows let the light flood in. Walk-in wardrobes with plenty of hanging and storage space keep things clutter-free. In the marble bathrooms you’ll find large tubs, powerful rain showers, his-and-hers sinks and Bulgari products. There’s also a small kitchenette complete with a Nespresso machine.
Breakfast can be enjoyed at Sait, a modern all-day dining restaurant overlooking the marina, in your suite (at no additional cost), or alfresco on the beach. The buffet includes fruit, local cheeses, homemade preserves and eggs made to order, plus local favorites like simit (a Turkish take on a sesame bagel) and menemen (peppery scrambled eggs). In the evening there’s a host of eateries nearby and the freshly caught seafood served in many is a must-try. The small ESPA Spa offers a full range of facials and massages, or you can be scrubbed, soaped and massaged into a state of total relaxation in the hammam. For active types there’s a well-equipped gym, and available water sports nearby including windsurfing and diving.
In the Area
The Palmarina Bodrum is packed with designer boutiques, clubs and restaurants, like Nobu, Cipriani and Billionaire. The cobblestone streets of old Yalikavak are lined with more budget-friendly shops, as well as alfresco bars and restaurants, like the popular Giggles and Café Minor, where you can listen to live jazz. It’s worth visiting Bodrum City, about 12 miles away, to explore the 15th-century castle, the harbor and the narrow streets of the old town. And in the quaint fishing village of Gumusluk, on the west coast of the peninsula, you can glimpse the remains of the ancient city of Myndos, which lies a few feet below the surface.
How to Get There

came here for a short getaway with my sister, from the beginning the service was beyond perfect. Ihsan along with the rest of the staff were so kind and made sure our stay was amazing. Will stay here again for sure.
I would like to express my thanks and appreciation for the service and care I received at Yalikavak Marina Hotel. It was only 2 days and a half and I wanted it to be perfect and they did not disappoint me. Every staff member with whom we came in contact was attentive and kind.Specially Mr.Ihsan was very welcoming and genuinely ready to get every single request possible.
Staying in Yalikavak Marina Hotel actually enhanced our vacation experience. I have recommended the hotel to all of my colleagues, friends and family. Thank you again for such outstanding service.
It was one of the most beautiful stays. The hotel is amazing and luxury. The staff are very helpful and even more. They care about your stay and experience. Even the manager used to walk around and set with the guests asking them for any help and plans before you think about. The view and the private beach is amazing and the access to the public beach where the parties are always on is magnificent.
Highly recommended for any person want to visit Bodrum and I will do again.
Thanks staff for your kind hospitality and making me happy!
