With its picturesque harbour, clear blue Aegean waters, marinas, clubs and celebrity clientele, Bodrum has rapidly developed into the latest tourist hot spot. And the Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum is the hottest address in town. EW have teamed up with the Mandarin Oriental to give one lucky reader a three-night stay in the chic port-side city of Bodrum
Built on a series of levels nestled in the resort’s landscaped hillside, the exclusive resort is surrounded by ancient olive groves and aromatic pine trees. There are 109 guestrooms and suites, all boasting sundecks and floor-to-ceiling windows with spectacular views. With layouts varying, you can opt for a balcony, a private garden or an infinity pool – or all three.
Foodies can indulge in gastronomic delights ranging from Turkish, to Italian and Mediterranean, with the hotel offering no less than ten bars and restaurants. For some much-needed pampering, experienced therapists are on hand to help you unwind with a range of holistic and signature wellness treatments. Be sure to put a couple of hours aside to take full advantage of the spa’s extensive hammam, Jacuzzi and steam rooms.
Fully rejuvenated, it’s time to take in some of Bodrum’s sights. Known as the St Tropez of Turkey, Bodrum’s appeal is far-reaching with snorkeling, sailing, tennis and basketball on offer for sporting enthusiasts and luxury boutiques to tempt shopaholics. Or simply head out for a walk to soak up the city’s unique architecture.
Back at the splendidly spacious and secluded Mandarin Oriental there’s nothing to remind you of the bustling outside world except for the odd super yacht cruising past…oh the glamour!
