Rixos Premium Bodrum
What We Love
- Ultra-inclusive stay at a five-star Bodrum beach resort on Turkey
- Being just 10 miles from the heart of Bodrum, known as the St Tropez of Turkey
- Gourmet delights at the themed à la carte restaurants
- The state-of-the-art Rixos Royal SPA for blissful pampering
What To Know
- Family-friendly; there's a pool with water slides and kids' disco nights
- Located on 187,000 square meters (that's close to 2 million square feet!) of private land, just 10 miles from Bodrum
- Service could be more attentive and some staff members don't speak fluent English
Cherished by jet-setting celebs and the cool set for its unique bohemian vibe, on-trend bars and clubs, turquoise waters and sparkling sands, the celebrity-draped Aegean town of Bodrum is fabulously set on south-west Turkey’s Turquoise Coast.
Small wonder then, that this statement-making and supersized five-star sleep with its own private beach seals the deal for luxury-seekers. There are two outdoor pools, 10 bars, gourmet thrills by way of a buffet restaurant and several à la carte dining spots, a sublime state-of-the-art spa for indulgent treatments and beauty rituals, and a first-rate kids club with age-specific activities for tots, teens, and those in-between.
With many framing of the spacious guest rooms overlooking the sparkling Aegean Sea, you can look forward to designer-led décor, stunning tiled headboards, sleek fixtures and fittings, sumptuous soft furnishings, and up-to-date gadgetry. Most fabulous, though, are the private balconies or terraces where you can while away the hours contemplating which of the many complimentary sporting activities you’ll get stuck into next.
Each of the 347 spacious rooms, suites and villas is finished to a high spec, with all assuring designer-led décor, stunning tiled headboards, sleek fixtures and fittings, and sumptuous soft furnishings. The well-sized Deluxe Sea View room frames the glittering sea perfectly and sleeps two, while the larger Family suite has two bedroom and two bathrooms, sleeping up to two adults and two children. Both room types have a minibar, tea and coffee-making facilities, flatscreen TV with satellite channels and music stations, and a private balcony or terrace.
Delectable cuisine reveals itself at the all-day Sini buffet restaurant and at several à la carte dining spots. Savour modern Turkish fare and fresh seafood at Zeytin Restaurant, relish Lebanese cooking at Layali Restaurant, or enjoy Far East-inspired dishes at Aja Restaurant – a dinner-only spot with sushi and Teppanyaki tables. Please note that à la carte restaurants must be pre-booked. There are also 10 bars and pubs dotted throughout the resort, including the Dem Tea House for speciality teas and coffees, Su Bar for poolside refreshments, and Mojito Bar for made-to-order cocktails and live stage shows.
Open daily, the sprawling state-of-the-art Rixos Royal SPA will impress the most savvy of spa-goers with its indoor pool, Turkish bath, Finnish bath, steam room, relaxation area and Vitamin Bar. There’s a dedicated Massage Parlour for Bali, Thai or Indian massage, Turkish bath rubbing and foaming, seaweed therapy and other spa rituals, a Moss Room for skin-firming and anti-cellulite treatments, and a beauty centre for pedicures, manicures, skin care and hairdressing. The resort also has an on-site fitness centre. Please note that all treatments are chargeable.
Set on 187,000-square-metres of private land on Turkey’s south-west coast, you’ll be just 10 miles from the centre of Bodrum – the celebrity-draped Aegean town famed for its bohemian vibe, trendy nightlife, turquoise waters, and glittering sands. Highlights include gawping at multi-millionaires mooring their gleaming yachts in the marina, visiting the stylish village of Türkbükü on the north side of the Bodrum Peninsula, posing to perfection at Bitez Beach, and marvelling at the 15th century St Peter’s Castle that’s home to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. Further Bodrum thrills include stocking up on designer goodies at the Karada Marina Shopping Mall, hitting the drinking dens on Bar Street, and getting a cultural fix at the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus – one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Rixos Premium Bodrum Turkey is 25 kilometres from Milas-Bodrum Airport.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Rixos hotel in Gocek last year and loved it so much decided on Rixos Bodrum this time and it did not disappoint. The hotel is fabulous! Beautifully appointed in lovely lush grounds with attentive and friendly staff. There is so much going on in terms of activities which we didn't take the chance to do as we were only there the week. We wished it had been 2!
Special praise to Chef Mustafa, Captain Umut and Waiter Adem at the Italian restaurant. Chef came out to speak with us as I had said I was vegan and so he catered especially for me! My husband and I had 4 courses of deliciousness! So impressed with the level of dedication, commitment and quality. Chef also caught us at breakfast the next day and made me breakfast and brought it to our table. Fabulous!
During the day we spent most of our time at the 16+ pier which has a bar nearby and the waitress would bring down fresh smoothies and drinks orders.
You can honestly spend your whole holiday just in this resort. They pamper and spoil you to the point you feel compelled to stay! Can't praise this hotel highly enough. As a rule we like to visit different places but I think we might bend them to go back here at some point in the near future!
Thank you Rixos for giving us a wonderful time xxx
Without a doubt I would come back to this hotel at any time. We’ve just got back ( myself, partner and 2yo daughter). Staff are so polite, kind, helpful and always have smile on their faces. Food and drinks were absolutely gorgeous and variety of it was just outstanding.
For families with little children: I would absolutely recommend Rixos children Club. Facilities are just great, and again their staff deserve a medal. My daughter absolutely loved it and several times during the day was asking for “club”.
Indoor and outdoor pools, beach, island.. all spa facilities - beautiful place for relaxation , rest and recharging inner batteries.

This Hotel really worth a visit all staff really good and in particular the assistant hotel manager Sabri who made it his personal mission to ensure you had an excellent holiday at the Rixos comparable with a recent stay we had in Gleneagles Scotland. The hotel had a great drinks selection and huge choice of great food we could not fault anything .Hotel on a great location and only 10 minutes in a bus of taxi to Bodrum. Would use this Hotel again , thank-you for a great holiday
A beautiful hotel in a perfect place in every respect: location, tranquility and certainly not too large! You will think there are more, but ... We had a setback; I fell ill and spent 5.5 days in the hospital; abroad is not the place where you want to be. We have experienced that helpfulness, customer friendliness and customer focus exist. From staff to management, people sympathized with us and we received all the support you need in a disaster like this; my husband and mother were assisted and completely unburdened in every conceivable way. Despite the setback we have a special experience and a very nice feeling left to Rixos Premium Bodrum; a hotel that distinguishes itself from other hotels by their sincere personal attention and commitment.
