The extensive outdoor spaces of this small boutique hotel lead directly onto the banks of the Turkish Riviera. Spacious wooden decking hangs 50 cm above the glass-clear water; inviting guests to bask in the warm sun, take a cool dip or relax in the more shaded areas, with bar staff on hand to serve cool, refreshing drinks. There is also an outdoor restaurant to be enjoyed, specializing in delicious fusion of Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. The hotel has a young, fun atmosphere, but it is also a gorgeous setting for a romantic couple’s retreat. Especially romantic are the hotel’s ultramodern ‘Junior Suites’ that come with a private veranda for a stunning view of the sea. Health conscious guests can also round off their trip with a visit to the hotel spa, or by taking advantage of the numerous hotel-run sports activities. Boutique hotel: a chilled-out atmosphere and amazing comfort
The Macakizi Hotel is made up of 74 guest rooms and suites, and this smaller size creates a great setting for guests to kick back and relax. The outdoor area resembles something like an open-air Chill Out Lounge, with a bar serving tasty cocktails made from fresh juices and soothing club beats providing the soundtrack to ultimate relaxation. Guests have a choice of comfortable sun loungers either in the sunshine or the shade, and should the Beach Deck get too hot there is always the choice of a refreshing dip in the hotel swimming pool. This relaxed, chilled atmosphere carries on into the guest rooms, where stylish paintings and bold colours contrast the fresh white of the comfortable beds. The double rooms alone come with 35m² of space; however, the absolute pinnacle of luxury is found in the hotel’s two-storey villa, complete with private terrace and balcony. Romantic: relax together in the glorious sunshine
The Macakizi Hotel is the perfect destination for loved-up couples looking for romance in the sun. Stunning sunset views don’t have to be enjoyed with the crowds – choose a Suite with a private terrace for a more intimate setting, or join other guests on the Beach Deck for a more social, party-like atmosphere as the evening draws on. For the real party animals the centre of the area’s nightlife is only a short walk away. Also extremely romantic is the hotel-run boat trip, which tours the coast making stops at plenty of secluded bays. A visit to the Hammam for a relaxing massage is also a great way to unwind with a loved one. Sport and Leisure: watersports and personal trainers
For those that like to get themselves moving on holiday, the Macakizi Hotel has a great variety of activities on offer. The hotel’s location is suited to practically every type of watersport, plus there is a fitness room and personal trainers available for yoga and Pilates. Swimmers can easily jump straight from the Beach Deck into the sea, and the hotel’s roped off swimming area. Food and Drink: Turkish-Mediterranean Fusion cuisine
The day begins with a relaxed breakfast outside in the morning sun. During the day and in the evenings the hotel chefs, led by head chef Aret Sahakyan, create delicious Turkish dishes with an added Mediterranean flavour. A great selection of bars and especially good fish restaurants can also be found along the bay side. Location: on the water’s edge
The Macakizi Hotel reaches out into the waters of the Türkbükü bay in the North of the Bodrum peninsula on the Turkish Riviera. The centre of the town and the vibrant nightlife along the bay side are just a few hundred metres away.
