The Bodrum EDITION

A seaside Turkish escape

Jet off to Turkey and relax at The Bodrum EDITION, where the ivory-colored accommodations feel as crisp and pristine as the sparkling Aegean Sea beyond. The boutique hotel features a collection of 108 rooms, suites and villas, most with views of the water and features such as a garden, balcony or private pool.

Even if you don’t opt for accommodations with a pool, you’ll find plenty of access to the water. Unwind in the 28-meter infinity pool, which overlooks the mountains, sea and sky, or hit the gold-sand beach, the hotel’s social hub. When you get out of the water, dine and drink at four restaurants and bars; work out in the fitness center, which offers Life Fitness equipment, a Pilates room and a yoga terrace; or spoil yourself in the spa, where you can have a treatment outside in an open-air cabana.

At the end of the day, you’ll relish retiring to your room’s large marble bathroom, with its deep-soaking tub, monsoon rain shower head and Le Labo toiletries.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The striking infinity pool makes you feel like you are flowing right into the sea. Plus, you’ll have access to the property's exclusive beach club, complete with a secluded jetty where you can book a cabana.
  • No matter which type of stay you choose, each comes with custom-designed furnishings, stone tile floors and warm-wood accents. Floor-to-ceiling picture windows complete the luxurious beach house vibe and most offer views of the sea or bay.
  • Celebrated Peruvian chef Diego Muñoz runs the resort's alfresco restaurant, Brava. Muñoz, formerly of El Bulli and Mugaritz, has created a menu that touches on his home country, with items such as blue tail prawns with garlic, grilled avocado and pickled chalaca, roasted beef fillet with smoked onion and a lomo saltado sauce, and ceviche de puerto with fish, octopus and fried calamari.
  • When in Turkey don't skip the traditional hammam, an ancient Ottoman sauna with cleansing and exfoliating rituals on a marble slab. At this gorgeous hotel spa, it's followed by a relaxing massage using Moroccan black soap with olive extract.
  • Refresh yourself at the pool or beach by ordering from Morena's menu. For starters, the cocktails like a pistachio milk colada, a sparkling wine and gin drink with citrus sherbet, and a sweet-and-spicy tequila tipple are all you will want while sunning. Add on sustenance such as a fruit platter featuring produce from the Yalikavak Market, a zucchini and crab tostada, and sticky fried chicken bites topped with nori and crushed cashews. Bonus: you can dine on even more street-food-style fare in the sit-down café.
