Where to Stay in Bodrum

Holidays to Turkey are becoming the top choice for families and couples alike. Turkey provides for the ultimate summer escape with its coastline of sun-washed sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and gorgeous Mediterranean sunshine… What more could you ask for? Well, there is plenty more to Turkey than just this!

With so many famous resorts to choose from, the choice may be difficult but here is why I chose Bodrum as my favourite along the Aegean coastline.

Bodrum, is a vibrant resort which offers fantastic nightlife, excellent restaurants and gorgeous sandy beaches. You will also come across an amazing number of historical sights, ancient ruins, museums, cobbled streets, bazaars and numerous water sports offerings. This picturesque resort is sure to make all types of holiday-makers happy!

Some think of Bodrum as Turkey’s answer to St Tropez- a charming, stylish and elegant resort.  This can be seen in the number of super-yachts in the harbour and the sheer amount of luxury hotels. There is still plenty of standard hotel accommodation and small, cheap B&Bs but now the elite and exclusive hotels are starting to take over.

Here are some of the best hotels to stay in whilst in Bodrum.

Kempinski Hotel Barbaros Bay.

For the ultimate luxury treatment, Kempinski Hotel Barbaros Bay is the top choice. This five-star hotel sits on a rocky hillside overlooking the Aegean waters. The hotel has an award-winning Six Senses Spa, its own private beach and an infinity pool with a partly submerged mosque.

The rooms are sumptuous, full of marble decor and have vast views over the sea. You may even spot a celebrity or two here!

Hotel WOW Bodrum Resort

The four-star WOW Bodrum Resort is a family-friendly resort set in the picturesque bay of Gumbet, with its own private beach. The stylish resort is home to 5 restaurants and offers an abundance of entertainment, catering for all tastes.

The attractive outdoor gardens and swimming pools make up for the outdated bedrooms! But hey, everyone spends most of their time outdoors whilst on holiday!

Voyage Bodrum

Voyage Bodrum is a four-star “adult” hotel which operates on an Ultra All Inclusive system and spans an area of 8,000 m². This is the perfect choice for those who want to get away from the notice and hustle of staying at a family hotel. It offers breath-taking views over Bodrum Castle and the blue-flag beach.

The five-star luxury boutique Marmara Bodrum Hotel enjoys a fabulous location, perched on a hilltop at the entrance of Bodrum with spectacular views over the bay and St Peter’s Castle.

This hotel has been designed for comfort and is ideal for those wanting a relaxing hotel in style. The luxury pool, Olympic sized pool, tennis court, fitness centre, spa, whirlpool and Turkish bath all help you totally unwind.
