Sat in the Yalıkavak Marina, the Bodrum EDITION has been built into a natural amphitheatre, making its views and beach even more dramatic against those Turkish Riviera skylines. Seriously – when we’ve stayed locally before, it’s hard to get sick of them.
Bodrum is changing fast, and EDITION are wise to get ahead of the crowds. The tourism industry here is only a few generations old so the EDITION’s flair for combining contemporary touches with traditional design is fitting. Glass foyers leave the hotel’s landscape to do the talking, while the horseshoe-shaped grounds with a slope towards the beach and jetty mean the focus is all where it should be: on the water.
