MANDARIN ORIENTAL BODRUM
The 109 room Mandarin Oriental Bodrum in Bodrum, designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. Wrapped around its own private bay on the northern shores of Turkey’s beautiful Aegean coast, the Mandarin Oriental Bodrum offers sublime views, hip bars, an excellent choice of restaurants, and a fabulous spa. Restrained elegance is the key to the 86 rooms and 23 apartments. .
Find your bearings ‘Bodrum’, to its regulars, is not precisely the town itself – rather, the name refers to the peninsula at large. On this coastal finger, you need to know where to go. Bodrum Town is where you can let off steam at night, where the club singers croon and corks pop across the shiny marina, and where summering show-offs swarm the boulevards. Beyond the town, quieter villages hug the northern, more exclusive shoreline, where you’ll find Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum.
Feed your mind Bodrum Castle was built by crusaders around 1402, from the ruins of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, long since dismantled (much is in the British Museum). It was reborn in 1962 as the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology, and has the world’s biggest Eastern Mediterranean amphora collection, as well as exquisite relics from shipwrecks around the Turkish Aegean.
Special Offers For Bookings
Sofra offers a diverse Mediterranean menu and panoramic views, and is the place for breakfasts, specialising in great breads and pastries, as well as artisanal yoghurts and cheeses. Aegean-set, cosy Bodrum Balıkçısı offers the traditional Turkish fish and seafood dishes that Bodrum is famous for, with a modern twist. Meanwhile, the classic Italian Assaggio, built on a platform at sea, is a wonderful spot for a romantic dinner or atmospheric evening with friends or family.
The phrase ‘blue cruise’ (‘mavi yolculuk’ in Turkish) refers to the joy of sailing the Turkish Med in a hand-carved gulet. It was invented by Bodrum’s first expat: novelist Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı, who was exiled to Bodrum in the 1920s and never wanted to go back to the big city.
A UNIQUE HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE…
Bodrum is catnip for divers. The most interesting sites are the Lighthouse, famed for its ethereal white corals, the Big Reef, replete with beautiful marine life, and Bubble Cave – accessed through a metre-wide gap in its roof.
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum is colossal, yet welcoming and cossetting, spread over two floors and a vast 2,700sq m. Blue Aegean horizons and year-round sun lend the spa to a fitness-focused break that also fuses pampering and high-tech treatments. Check in for an invigorating hammam, or choose one of the signature Oriental massages that zone in on stress areas. To bliss out even more, book yourself onto a ‘Blue Voyage’, which refers to the practice of exploring the cerulean coast in a hand-built timbered Turkish yacht. Dropping anchor in pristine bays and swimming in virgin inlets will definitely blow away any cobwebs.
