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
Yes, i made my marriage proposal in this place. And what an excellent choice. I rent a suite 2 months ago and i took a word of organisation managers that they could host us in another room for the first 7 hours. When the time came, even the hotel was full, they kept their word and saved an ordinary room for us! Beside that, the manager prepared a little dinner table for us as a gift! Hotel is just between the boat marina of bodrum and nearly central. But a little bit far from the airport. But when you came to the hotel, you will forget that little ride for sure. I didnt go in season, but i know, in seasons, they have a lot of organisations(like dj, popular singers etc.). Make sure to check the organisation list before you go. I was really appreciated about the speed of the hotel crew. And they were very cooperated about my little secret organisation. Everything went fine and of course she said yes :). No surprises at all. Thanks for every detail that i forgot.
Room was clean, Hotel constructed by stones and looks beautiful, i spent my time out of Hotel Generally, that's why i couldn't find many thing. Just i remember , there is nice garden but Hotel management must remind to quests shouldn't speak noisy at Garden.
We stayed here january 2019 so very of season, but we had a great stay. The personel was extremely helpful. The room was super big and very nicely decorated. The location of the hotel is the best you can get in Yalikavak. Right next door to the famous Yalikavak Marina. We were very lucky with the wheather, We had breakfast and lunch outside in the marina. Sait restaurant is very close and a great place for eating fish. Thanx so much to personel. You were so kind! A big thank you to all of you....We certainly will be back!
Although I have been to Yalikavak many times before but this was my first time in this hotel and I must say I am so pleasantly surprised!!!
This all I needed after a seven months in China for business I needed a peaceful and beautiful place to relax and re-energized . This could not be more perfect
The suite in this hotel has the most beautiful view of the sea as well as the hills town
