Yalıkavak has its
own superb selection of hotels apart
in Bodrum proper.
in Yalıkavak is to be apart from all
the noise and bustle of Bodrum, to
be in a more sedate place.
If you want to be within walking distance
of the hottest music and dance clubs,
Bodrum is for you. If you prefer quieter
(but not completely quiet) evenings,
hotels are everywhere: right on the beach in the town center, up the hill overlooking the sea
with panoramic views and calm atmosphere, or on the surrounding bays (map). All have swimming pools, air-conditioned guest rooms with private bathrooms, and the other expected comforts.
Tranquillity and rejuvenation are the aims at the 20-room 4reasons,
and all the facilities are designed for it. Unabashedly
upscale New Age—Californian, really—you're pampered
in style. More...
Each of the 22 villas 5 km (3 miles) from the center of Yalıkavak in the hills overlooking the sea has its own private small swimming pool, and there's a larger communal pool and a tennis court as well. A shuttle van takes you to the beach. More...
The exclusive Sandima has only seven suites (including a cottage) on beautiful grounds south of the town center More...
Right across pedestrianized Plaj Caddesi from the beach and only steps from the Çarşı (bazaar) in the center of Yalıkavak (map), the Taşkule is for you if you like being able to walk everywhere. More...
Right behind the aforementioned Taşkule Hotel, the 16-room Windmill is slightly quieter. More...
Behind the Windmill Hotel, the 15-room Miray is still only a few minutes' stroll from the beach and the town center on a quiet street. More...
Big, fancy, and beautifully located on the hillside above Tilkicik Bay (map), the 200-room Delta was renovated in 2013, and has all facilities. More...
Some distance from the center of Yalıkavak on the eastern shore of Frenk Azmağı (map), the 40-room Palmalife is for you if you prefer a self-contained family-friendly resort away from town and traffic, with spectacular views. More...
Should you want to be right in town at the water's
edge, the modern Elite Hotel will serve you well.
Despite its name, it is on the shore in Yalıkavak,
not Bodrum proper.
Yalıkavak has a dozen other hotels
and apartment/ flat/ suites lodgings, some right
on the sea and in the town center. Check them here:
