Treat yourself to some well-deserved "me" time in the Spa. Covering three floors, it has not just an indoor pool but a fantastic outdoor pool too, located in the Spa's own private garden overlooking the ocean. You could very easily spend the entire day there.

Rent a stand up paddle board from the water sports center first thing in the morning when the wind and sea is calm is ideal. There’s plenty to see along this lush coastline. Paddle round in total peace before heading back for a well-deserved breakfast.

Description

This five star resort offers total luxury and style, synonymous with the Mandarin Oriental brand. On the sheltered northern shores of the Bodrum peninsula, where the waters remain warm long into October, it's the perfect place to relax and be surrounded in total comfort. This beautiful stretch of coastline is lush and green, with pine covered hills and turquoise, sandy coves.

Set amongst olive groves and pine trees, the resort's contemporary and sophisticated architecture blends into the landscape as if it had been there for longer. The first thing that strikes you on arrival is the sense of space and the exceptional quality and attention to detail, with Turkish elements combined with Oriental-inspired touches.

They are beautifully designed and furnished, with large bathrooms having a view of the sky above the bath. Many have their own terraces and lawn, whilst some feature a private pool. Private apartments offer families more independence and are elegantly designed and furnished, with a balcony or terrace and views over the pine forests or the Aegean. All have butler service, ensuring all of your needs are catered to, from dining options to arranging activities to ensuring you have everything you need in your room.

The in-room dining service is to be recommended, especially for breakfast when you can sit out on your own terrace in the sun.
