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.
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.

Rooms & Suites Mandarin Oriental Bodrum: Most of the 109 guest rooms face the deep-blue Aegean Sea, which takes center stage thanks to massive walls of windows, ample outdoor terraces, and private gardens with infinity-edge pools in suites.

If you love Italian cuisine, you can’t go wrong with a night at the sophisticated venue Assaggio. If you’re looking for more local cuisine try the seasonal restaurant Bodrum Balikçisi. One of the most popular restaurants here is Kurochan, which offers contemporary Japanese food and spectacular sea views. If you have a sweet tooth, a quick visit to The Mandarin Cake Shop is a must.
