Marmara Bodrum

Luxury hotel in Bodrum Town

The upmarket Marmara, high on a bluff, has spectacular views and 97 swish rooms – make sure you get one facing the right way! It's part of a five-star chain, and facilities include tennis, spa, gym and two pools. We love the photo portraits of Turkish country people adorning the corridors and the antique locks and keys on display.

A free shuttle accesses a private beach at Göltürkbükü on the peninsula. The rooftop has a big jacuzzi, two balconies and a private roof terrace for throwing your own all-nighter. Note that children under 12 are not allowed.
