Description

This luxurious hotel is situated on a cliff top in a secluded location approximately 15 minutes drive from the town of Bodrum. A short walk or golf buggy drive down the cliff path takes you to a private sandy beach where you can swim in the warm sea or take advantage of the water sports on offer. The shelf entry is safe for children, plus there's plenty of shade near the Beach restaurant with its lush lawns, hammocks and sun loungers.

Each of the 148 sizeable guest rooms have glorious sea views with balconies or terraces overlooking the hotel’s private bay. All have en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi and are decorated in calm and neutral colors.

The Kempinski Bodrum is a fantastic place to unwind and get away from the stress of everyday life. With 5500 sqm of space, The Spa is an exclusive haven where guests can relax and rejuvenate with treatments based on a Far Eastern approach to wellness. In between treatments you can take in the breathtaking views from the comfort of your sun lounger or dip into the largest infinity pool in the region. All of the parasols shading the sun loungers have their own "call" button, so a refreshing gin and tonic is never far from reach.

It's a large hotel with not so many rooms and a lot of public space, which gives it a great advantage of certain privacy and intimacy as compared to larger hotels - there are never too many people anywhere, at breakfast or down at the beach. This allows for a very relaxing atmosphere.

Guests can sample refined cuisine in the hotel’s many restaurants where only the freshest local produce is used. Whether you fancy a gourmet dinner or a snack at lunchtime, the hotel has a variety of bars and restaurants to choose from. A short five minute drive takes you to a small village with a marina where you can sample traditional Turkish fare.
