Holidays in Turkey: Bodrum, the paradise of Turkish bohemian

Holidays in Turkey: Bodrum, the paradise of Turkish bohemian. Whoever has not seen Bodrum once in his life should do so. Such a combination of mountain with sea, arid and greenery, Greece and Turkey in one place does not even exist.

Plus the air has special properties. Not for nothing, in the past, before tourism exploded in the area, Turks suffering from lung diseases came here to be treated. Now, things have changed, but the air has remained. So a Turkey 2021 holiday should have among the objectives a visit to Bodrum, which can improve your physical condition and not only your mental one.

A historic city

Known in antiquity as Halicarnassus, Bodrum is also known as the birthplace of the Greek historian Herodotus. It is also home to the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus – one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The ruins of the Mausoleum can now be visited being located in the northern part of the city (about 1 km from the center).

St. Peter’s Castle is another important site in Bodrum, next to the Myndos Gate and the amphitheater built by King Mausolos.

An island of calm and relaxation

It still works wonders, if we take into account the many hotels / resorts in the area. Among them Xanadu Island Hotel Bodrum or Vogue Hotel Supreme.

As the name suggests, Xanadu Island Hotel is a complex located on a private island, connected to the main land by a specially built road. With 220 rooms spread over 55,000 square meters, Xanadu Island Hotel is more of a small village than a simple hotel. There are tennis courts, private pools, children’s playgrounds,

Over 10,000 Romanians arrive in total at Xanadu Island Hotel. Even if they are not the majority, our compatriots are super pampered in the complex that occupies an entire island. This gives them protection and privacy. And, although it is separate from the rest of the city, the rules are kept sacred. The resort is inspected monthly by the authorities and receives operating approval only if all measures required by law are complied with.

Tourism lessons from the Turks

Dream facilities

The infinity pool, usable by all guests, is now open. So are the pools “sprinkled” everywhere in the complex. And the sea that sits smoothly at the feet of tourists makes your stay on the island even more pleasant. And, also to please the guests, the chefs come with more and more appetizing dishes. Nothing is missing from the menu. And, for an ideal experience, tourists are pampered, if they want, with familiar dishes. Thus, the chefs are informed about the nationality of the guests and, if necessary, prepare the food according to them. “If, for example, we have guests from England, we make sure to have beans for breakfast, and also from our menu, there is no lack of traditional fish & chips (…) Plus, if a tourist celebrates his birthday or celebrates a specific event, the hotel representatives take care to give them small gifts“, spune Ibrahim Eyiuslu, assistent guest relations manager Xanadu Island Hotel Bodrum.

Xanadu also offers for rent villas for up to 8 people not only the classic rooms in the main building of the resort. And, although the prices at the reception (2500 € / villa / night, or 200 € / night / room, in the main building of the resort) may seem discouraging, the agencies come with much better offers.

A hotel always in vogue

With an ideal position and an incredible view of the sea, Vogue Hotel Suprem is the place where everyone feels happy and protected, even in times of pandemic. With 2100 beds on a huge area (over 400,000 square meters), not only parents but also kids can be happy.

Kids can feel like in fairy tales in Candyland, in the Luna Park amusement park, in the 8D cinema (well, yes, there is such a thing !!) or in the gaming room that offers the latest PS 5 games, a cinema hall or themed workshops. The place specially designed to the liking and size of the children has a huge advantage. Juniors can be left here for hours, under the careful oversight of some park employees, so adults can finally feel on vacation. Tempting, isn’t it?

Guests who want even more privacy can rent one of the four villas, located in the less visited areas of the resort. The price of 12,000 € / night is not scary for everyone, so the villas are frequently rented.

Turkey 2021, a destination not to be missed

An intense nightlife

If it’s Tuesday, it’s Belgium, the title of an old movie. To paraphrase, if it’s Bodrum, it’s nightlife. This is also another reason why tourists choose the city that combines the sea and the mountains. It is said that this is the most active nightlife in Turkey. The city seems to be empty with Bodrum Bar Street, as the Cumhuriyet artery is also called, and on which bars, clubs, terraces and discos are “planted”. Anything else to add ?? Maybe just the fact that, in normal times, some big parties were organized at sea. But, it’s not the past tense. Turkey is no longer on the yellow list, so everything can return to the state we all knew.

One stay, two countries

Passionate tourists to see as many places as possible have the opportunity, if they choose a trip to Turkey, to see a little bit of Greece. Yes Yes! Less than an hour away, after a ferry ride, you can reach the island of Kos. All you have to do is buy a ticket, either online or from Bodrum port, and you’re done. IMPORTANT!! It is mandatory to have your passport with you!
