Turkey's most popular seaside destination, white-washed, bougainvillea-drenched Bodrum, just got a luxury addition. The exclusive five-star Movenpick Resort Bodrum
opened its doors at the beginning of July. From its vantage point on a hilltop overlooking Gumbet Bay and the Aegean Sea, the Movenpick offers breathtaking vistas over the harbor. Known for its happening nightlife and its historic sites (including St. Peter's Castle and the Mausoleum), Bodrum is also a yachtsman's dream, a jumping off point to discover the myriad small islands along Turkey's incredible Aegean coastline. In fact, the Movenpick has a sailing yacht which can be chartered by up to 18 people. The resort's 92 rooms are decorated in a Mediterranean style with light wood colors and Spanish shutters. Guests can take in the spectacular sunsets from the private balcony or terrace. Facilities include two outdoor swimming pools, one indoor pool, restaurant and bar, Fitness Center, and a Wellness Center, where guests can relax in the Turkish hammam and sauna. Take advantage of a limited time special offer for the hotel's grand opening: rates start from just EUR 122 until September 1, 2007.
Three night minimum required.
