D Maris Bay
Hisarönü Mevki, Marmaris/Mu?la, Turkey
Blending the West’s contemporary minimalism and the east’s exoticism, D Maris Bay on Turkey’s unspoiled Datça Peninsula is a luxury resort described as an ‘aquatic oasis’. Take your pick between a quintet of mesmerising beaches that ring the resort, or outdoor, vitality and heated swimming pools within its grounds.
The resort is perched within a nature reserve, meaning dramatic scenery at every turn; admire the views from the comfort of a sunlounger or get out and explore them. Either way, the experienced concierge team will be on hand to ensure that you enjoy every moment.
The east-meets-west theme is also found in D Maris Bay’s dining options, from Anatolian cuisine at Rüya to La Guérite’s healthy Mediterranean dishes. For moments of wellness and relaxation, head to the Mytha Spa for revitalising, pioneering treatments, or try one of the hotel’s Bodyism classes with a personal trainer.
The Datça Peninsula is defined by small bays and coves, which is what creates the stunning rugged scenery the area is famed for. One of the best ways to explore the area is on a sea excursion. The hotel can arrange overnight cruises on their Ubi Bene sailing yacht, or their Alia Open Sea motor yacht is available for day outings.
Even when it comes to airport transfers to and from D Maris Bay, you are spoilt for luxurious choices. Reserve a luxury SUV, an 8-seat Mercedes passenger van or an Airbus EC145 helicopter.
