Yalikavak, Bodrum, Turkey

We are delighted to return to the picture-postcard port of Yalikavak on the Bodrum peninsula. The new marina development reflects the resort’s upmarket style, but the old windmills, white-washed houses and beach are unchanged, as are the friendly waterside bars. An hour by bus, Bodrum is a must for sightseeing as is a Turkish bath and massage.

The 4 Reasons Hotel is considered one of the most stylish boutique hotels in Bodrum so we are so excited that it is back on our programme!

Please note that from 2nd March 2020, a tourist Visa is no longer required to visit Turkey.

4Reasons Hotel

Named ‘because there are 4 reasons to stay here’, this 20 room hotel has 5-star online reviews which mention many more reasons. At the 4Reasons Hotel there are sweeping views from the roof terrace bar to the resort and beach 15 minutes’ walk away. The restaurant serves a buffet breakfast, plus dinner (with wine) on 5 nights and there’s a blissful pool and gardens.

At the heart of the hotel is the lovely pool with its terraces and sun-beds complemented by the carefully tended gardens. If you are looking for a luxury hotel with excellent food, service and views, this hotel is for you!

This hotel is adults only (over 12’s only). As featured in the Daily Mail article – July 2020 – by Liz Hoggard.

A quirky but elegant styling with a clever use of space and original artwork characterize the hotel’s personal approach.

Bodrum is well-served by regional flights, and while the hotel is a tranquil retreat there is lots to do around the peninsula. Yalikavak has a good public beach; cooling sea breezes are great for windsurfing and a huge choice of boat trips. The city features twin bays with views of Bodrum Castle. This medieval fortress was built in part with stones from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
