4reasons hotel+bistro is a wonderful getaway refuge in pleasant Yalıkavak on the northwestern shore of Turkey’s Bodrum peninsula (map).
Four reasons for being: Serenity, Design, Quality, Attitude.
The hotel was a leader in recognizing that discerning visitors wanted these four qualities in a hotel, and the hotel delivers on the promise.
Set back in the hills well above the town, 4reasons is tranquil—well, serene—with the loudest sounds being the morning bird calls and the hilarious croaking of frogs from the little waterfall fountain in the evening.
Spacious, beautifully designed and maintained indoor and outdoor seating and sunning areas, a fine swimming pool with a spectacular view of the town and the bay, and careful, quiet service are hallmarks of the 4reasons.
