Atop the hill on which it is perched in the very centre of Bodrum, the irresistible outline of the hotel The Marmara Bodrum catches the eye. This establishment undeniably has a certain magic. Between its walls, you will find a stylish dialogue between vivid colours and neutral tones, between the bohemian spirit of the Aegean and a discreet luxury underlined by iconic design elements. Throughout your stay here you will find poesy, subtlety and elegance in everything from the luxurious rooms and suites down to the plates on which local and international cuisine are served.
From the balconies and terraces of the rooms and suites, the blue nuances of Bodrum Bay make a delightful contrast with the white walls of the medieval castle. Fill your lungs with sea air, and re-energise looking out over the luxuriant vegetation before you finally fall asleep in a large, deep bed; it’s like falling asleep on a cloud. The decor has been planned to awaken the senses. It combines natural materials such as wood for balance, different shades of ochre for luminosity, bold design touches, and mood lighting for a shared intimacy.
Your sensory immersion continues in the restaurant, where throughout the day you can explore the tastes of Turkish and international cuisine while contemplating the remarkable panorama of white houses set against a turquoise background. There is no better way to enjoy the appeal of the Turkish Riviera, or to appreciate the country’s legendary hospitality.
The Marmara Bodrum is part of the Marmara group, one of the best-known hotel chains in Turkey. Every hotel in the group has its own story and its own distinctive personality. I know the one in Istanbul and have appreciated it a great deal for years now. I was also seduced by the group’s Bodrum hotel, which benefits both from an ideal location in the centre of the pearl of the Aegean coast, and a relaxed atmosphere enhanced by a discreet charm.
