Join the bronzed and beautiful guests lounging by the Aegean at this uber-slick beach-club hotel and spa. A jet set hangout, it’s Turkey’s answer to St Tropez.
Hidden within Turkbuku’s enclosed bay near Bodrum, magical Macakizi’s cottages spill down the picturesque hillside, flanked by a rampant rainbow of pink bougainvillea and red hibiscus towards a truly glorious apex: a timber pontoon with comfortable, cushioned lounge areas. Sinking into the seats, you can enjoy vodka-infused watermelon cocktails and various other combustive concoctions that keeping flowing all afternoon.
Explore the tiny, intricate pathways through the resort and stumble upon sail-shaded sitouts among bushes and olive trees. They are perfect for a spot of solitary sunbathing. You can also slip into the tranquil spa. Then, venture back to your bedroom – white, airy, contemporary and an ideal place to relax at the end of the day.
Most rooms are situated in two-storey cottages – and if you can, choose an upstairs room). In the evening, Macakizi’s in-house restaurant and bar serves some of the best food in all of Turkey.
