I arrived in Turkey for the first time with a nervous anticipation of what Id find, and I did not know what to expect from the D-Maris Resort as I knew the main building is from the 1970s which is now protected by planning laws. However, after a 1.5 hour journey from Dalaman Airport along the beautiful coast and through the surrounding hills I arrived at the hotel, and after a reassuring security-check I pull up to a grand entrance with views right across the Turquoise Coast. You instantly feel like you have arrived in a luxurious paradise as your bags are whisked up to your room and you enjoy your welcome cocktail during the check-in process. The views from the rooms are breath-taking as you are high up on a hill and can see the hotels five sandy beaches and the picturesque bay in which the hotel is situated. A few yachts are dotted around the crystal-clear bay and you cannot see another building in sight. The hotel offers a range of activities for people who dont want to just relax on the sandy beaches; amazing water sports including sailing, water-skiing, stand-up-paddle-boarding and much more is easily accessible as well as a huge gym, spa, tennis academy, kids club and some amazing restaurants including a Zuma. The La Guerite beach club situated on a small sandy peninsular offers amazing lunches and then transforms into an Ibizan-esque beach club open until the early hours for those guests wanting to party the night away. However, if youd rather relax in peace then dont worry as you can always spend your days on the adults-only apty named Silence Beach. All-in-all this resort is fantastic and even though the hotel is a bit isolated, you really wont want to leave as there is something for everyone!

Hidden away in this beautiful corner of Turkey is an absolute gem of a beach resort. I had known about the D Hotel Maris Bay for a few years and had disregarded it previously as a bit of a white elephant overly flashy and lacking in style. I couldnt have been more wrong. It is a bit of a drive from Dalaman to reach the hotel but not uncomfortable and the majority is spent whizzing through forest clad mountains and valleys as you pass through a national park. You arrive at the hotel and walking through the oversize glass doors are greeted by the most incredible view 180 degrees of sparkling Mediterranean Sea and small protected bays.  The hotel is one block sitting high above the sea below. You need to take a funicular down from the main pool to reach the beaches below. Its easy and quick but works well in separating the rather stiff 5 star hotel from the very relaxed beaches and restaurants below. The beaches are man made but you would never know, the sand is beautifully soft and there is plenty of it with the main beach having easily enough space for everyone. The thing that really made it stand out for me though was the quality of the restaurants. Zuma is every bit as buzzy as its London sibling and the food is right on par, its a million miles away from the average resort restaurant as is the stunning beach club La Guarite which screams St Tropez from the moment you rock up off the hotels shuttle boat. Altogether it adds up to a seriously impressive package and I cant wait to go back.

It is really hard to find any fault with this hotel, from the exceptional service at the Zuma restaurant to the smaller details such as flower arrangements along the funicular lift, everything has been planned to precision with attention and care being taken each step along the way.

From the moment I checked in I felt at ease, perhaps due to the incredible view across the bay to Rabbits island or perhaps due to the enormous and extremely comfortable king size bed that I could collapse on. 

The selection of beaches is fantastic as whether you would like to relax and read a book in silence, hop onto a jet ski or enjoy a beach club atmosphere with live music ... you will be sure to find what you are looking for.
