Stay at the MO Bodrum
A hilltop hideaway facing the glorious Aegean coast, Mandarin Oriental Bodrum captures the magic of Turkey in more ways than one. Designed in olive-coloured geometric blocks, the estate exudes authenticity and plenty of natural charm. Warm and first-class service promises a truly luxurious escape against a glistening backdrop of ocean, gulets and yachts. Whisk your way through the grounds on a courtesy buggy. Enjoy uncompromised privacy at the bay that calls the hotel home. A sail from the resort’s private harbour can also be arranged, followed by a drink on the Assaggio restaurant deck and a handcrafted pastry from the in-house cake shop.
Based in the Bodrum peninsula near Goltürkbükü, the resort overlooks the beautiful Cennet Koyu (Paradise Bay). Milas-Bodrum Airport is 40 minutes north, and vibrant Bodrum with its chic harbour and ancient sites is just a short drive away.
The hotel houses 132 guest rooms and suites, with shimmering sea or garden views. Interiors give way to simple yet refined decor, with opulent teak panels and modern pieces of art. For a heftier price, the Presidential Suite comes with multiple bedrooms, private gym, sauna and garden lawn.
Who is it for
The resort caters to both couples and families, however its lively nature means those craving absolute intimacy and seclusion may prefer a more boutique-style stay.
