Beautifully bohemian and utterly luxurious, this boutique hotel is tucked away on the north side of Turkey’s Bodrum Peninsula, fringing the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea.
A hotel that has been in the Emiroglu family since 1977, Macakizi has continued to flourish with the vision of the original founder’s son, Sahir.
Artfully combining an authentic Turkish feel with an exclusive beach club vibe, the resort showcases a private beach with direct sea access, upon which, each evening a DJ entertains only the most discerning party-goers. In the day, three luxurious beach cabanas are available to hire.
After soaking up the sun on the beach or beside the pool, unwind in the hotel’s glorious spa. Affiliated with the prestigious French brand NUXE, the spa offers a lengthy menu of five-star treatments - such as the award-winning anti-ageing therapy, Nuxellence. The fully-equipped fitness centre affords picturesque garden views and personal training, with yoga and Pilates sessions available on request.
Offering a selection of exquisite, Turkish culinary delights, the resort’s main restaurant serves impressive menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while the laidback Beach Bistro offers delicious, Mediterranean-inspired small plates each afternoon before turning into a full restaurant in the evening time.
Located next to a charming local village Turkbuku, the area around Macakizi is well worth exploring. Additionally, the elegant Yalikavav Marina is just a 20-minute taxi ride away, boasting designer shopping and gorgeous restaurants, while the bustling centre of Bodrum itself is just a half-hour drive away.
The beautiful Macakizi resort comprises 53 rooms and 21 suites, each featuring artwork by renowned Turkish artists and with either a garden or sea view. Every inch of the accommodation has been recently refurbished, designed with understated luxury and decorated with modern furnishings. The impressive open plan bathrooms are complete with luxury Acqua Di Parma toiletries and an atmospheric rain shower, while the rooms feature top-end French beds with lavender-scented pillows, BOSE TVs and remote-controlled black-out curtains.
