This fun and fabulous hotel is the latest collaboration between Ian Schrager and Marriott on the north coast of the Turkish Riviera. Overlooking the Aegean Sea which surrounds it’s hillside location with the shimmering Turquoise Coast, the fabulous views can be enjoyed from many spots including the seriously stylish cabanas on the wooden jetty, the infinity pool and from the villas overlooking the private beach.
The hotel has a calming and uncluttered aesthetic throughout its 102 rooms. Muted tones of beige, brown and white give a minimalist feel. Crisp linens dressing the ultra large beds, and black-and-white beach photos leaning against the headboards give a chic vibe. The bathrooms are just as luxurious, with oversized tubs, monsoon rain showers, and double vanities. But there’s more than the pristine rooms that draw people here, the facilities are another level with a private beach, infinity pool, must visit spa, pop-up shops, and a nightclub.
The three on site restaurants appeal to all the foodies out there. Each offering something different, but all taking advantage of the views with outdoor seating facing the bay. Head to Morena for sushi, tempura and gyoza, Kitchen for locally inspired dishes; and Brava for Peruvian flavours.
Morena is the beachside restaurant that’s laidback by day and adventurous by night, offering beach-friendly dishes ordered from restaurant to your sunbed. By night the menu transforms an elegant, Japanese-inspired dinner menu in collaboration with Istanbul’s acclaimed Inari Omakase.
Kitchen is particularly special, with its higher up vantage point offering the best views, and a menu which explores the flavours of the Turkish coast for a true
taste of community with the freshest fish, meat and salad greens sourced from the property’s own gardens and local farms.
Brava is the Bodrum EDITION’s signature al fresco restaurant, More than a culinary destination, Brava hosts live events and has become known as a cultural hotspot with artists from the music, art and fashion worlds.
The spa serves something for everyone from facials to massages. Enjoy a treatment in the warm glow of the surrounding hurricane lanterns and indulge in secluded outdoor treatment spaces, complete with hot and cold plunge pools.
If you’re looking for a touch of adrenaline instead visit the watersports hut to book time on jet skis, paddleboards and more in the bay in front.
