Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum Review: A Regal Escape in the Turkish Riviera

TURKEY


At Bodrum, the turquoise water glistens, the landscape blooms in an indigenous mosaic habitat, and the Mandarin Oriental property excels in luxury and hospitality.


Nestled along the stunning blue Aegean Sea, Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum beckons travellers with its breathtaking beauty and opulence. The Paradise Bay hosts an unparalleled view featuring Mediterranean pine forest, garrigue shrubland, olive groves and savanna.


A stay at the hotel is not merely an escape from city life, but an immersion into Mediterranean-style luxury where you will fall in love with nature as you dine at the property's restaurants, relieve stress with its spa treatments and find comfort in the cosy and spacious villas.

Accommodation


Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum is a luxurious beachside resort in the Turkish Riviera.



From the tranquil wooden wall panelling to the cream-coloured rugs and the beautifully woven leather headboard, the resort boasts 128 luxurious rooms, suites, villas and lifestyle apartments designed by the acclaimed designer, Antonio Citterio. It is reminiscent of Mandarin Oriental's signature oriental heritage whilst at the same time also portraying the traditional local Turkish aesthetics.




Spacious yet private and quiet, each accommodation features a sundeck, terrace, or balcony, and some, a private garden and infinity pools. To top it off, every roof, edge and corner is designed to blend harmoniously with its natural surrounding trees and ocean line for an idyllic view wherever you are within the resort.





Dining


A dining experience at Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum means that all the paradise's beauty becomes a backdrop to a gastronomic journey. Its 13 bars and restaurants, overlooking the sea, make for a stunning collection of cuisines.


Atelier di Carne is a vibrant contemporary steakhouse for a casual meal. The menu offers a mouthwatering selection of quality cut meats, ethically sourced seafood, and fresh produce. The jewel of the property is Hakkasan, a Cantonese fine-dining that seeks to reinvent traditional Chinese recipes. The dining space is an open-air setting capturing a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea.


For a taste of the fresh ocean, Kurocahn by IOKI presents a menu full of modern and innovative sushi menu influenced by Peruvian flavours. Perched over the resort's main beach, the Nikkei-style contemporary Japanese and Peruvian restaurant is also among the favourites of the guests. And for those who are craving something resonating more with Japanese cuisine, there is also IOKI on the Beach which serves authentic and iconic dishes like tempoura, teppanyaki and robata grills.






Facilities


The resort life is not complete without an indulging visit to The Spa of any Mandarin Oriental. This is where centuries-old Turkish water therapies can be experienced in hammams, where a grand 2,700 sqm spa is spread over 2 floors in 12 treatment rooms, 3 beauty rooms and 4 outdoor cabanas. Its holistic spa serves an array of wellness, beauty and massage programs in the region, as well as hammams with private scrub rooms, an indoor swimming pool and a vitality pool.


And, after a recharge at The Spa, you are welcomed by a wide range of activities to get your full use of the dream-like ocean. Scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing, fishing, or tennis, basketball, jogging and swimming.



Overall


Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum is a nature-filled escape to serenity from your daily hustle, complete with fine dining, a luxurious spa and exceptional service to match.
