Caresse, A Luxury Collection Hotel
A Luxury Collection Hotel
What it is
An architectural, beachfront resort right in the center of Bodrum.
What it isn't
A quiet retreat in a secluded cove nor a sprawling resort with limitless entertainment.
What we think
Right on the white sand beach, the hotel is Starwood Luxury Collection’s first property in the glam port city of Bodrum. The resort looks like architecturally stacked boxes, palm fronds and decorative grasses peppered on the edges of the rooms’ balconies and around the infinity pool. A grey stone path winds down the private beach where a plank deck curves out over the water - acting as both a place to sprawl out in the sun and as a place to board the resort’s yacht for day excursions. The property has 84 rooms, 9 of which are suites, 7 of which are private residences and one that is the separate, private villa. All of the rooms favor pale woods, matte greys and handsomely contemporary furniture; they all have balconies that open to panoramic views of Bodrum’s turquoise bay. Caresse has multiple dining options on property: La Plage and Glass offer locally sourced and artfully done Turkish and Mediterranean fare while the Sushi Corner supplies a fresh alternative. The extensive 17,000 square foot spa utilizes ESPA’s expertise and has a host of holistic treatments, ranging from Ayurvedic massages to the Bodrum-specific, Aegean themed rituals.
You're here because
Looking for a getaway, you’re looking for something different - a place with nightlife, strong sunshine and a sense of place.
The moon, giant and glowing, has began its ascent. Once it clears the small volcanic island just off the coast, it lights up the dark water. Lights under the infinity pool’s surface twinkle in tandem with the stars above.
Restaurants & Bars
Glass Restaurant - World Cuisine
La Plage Restaurant - South Aegean, Mediterranean &Japanese
Bodrum Marina Yacht Club
New Old Club
In Turkey’s southwestern corner, on the Aegean coast. Currently it’s a prestigious resort city with a vibrant nightlife - the hotel is within walking distance to a bevy of shops and restaurants and Bardakci Beach and Bodrum’s Marina are just around the corner. Bodrum, known in antiquity as Halicarnassus, is rich with ancient sites: the Tomb of King Mausolus (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World) and the Bodrum Windmills are both about two miles away.
The resort is just under 45 minutes from the international airport.
