Tucked between the Aegean and Bodrum Peninsula’s national parks, this resort brims with top facilities.
Rixos Premium Bodrum has a stunning location, fronting the soft white sands of a private Blue Flag beach. Getting in and out on the water is a big part of the resort experience. The meandering main pool is a beautiful place for taking a dip, while the Rixy Aqua Park with its waterslides is made for fun. In the sea, take your pick of watersports from paddle boarding to parasailing. For more leisurely time by the water, we recommend splashing out on a Hawaiian cabana at least once during your stay. These private cabanas are perched over the sea, with direct access to the warm waters, and – for an extra charge – come with waiter service, minibar drinks and an à la carte lunch.
Kids will be happy to play the day away at the top kids’ club. It’s divided into age groups for tailored activities that include Lego workshops, pizza making, cinema nights and treasure hunts. There’s also a whole range of entertainment and activity programmes for all the family, from live music and themed parties to yoga and aqua Zumba. If that’s all too much, retreat to the spa and zone out in the marble Turkish bath.
Dining options include the buffet restaurant, Halikarnas, where all your meals are included, as well as a choice of à la carte restaurants. We love the signature fish restaurant, Kalamata, for its fresh seafood served up overlooking the Aegean Sea. You can also try out each of the bars. In the daytime, head to the Beach Bar for zesty cocktails, while at night the Sea and See Bar on the pier is the place to be. Spacious and modern rooms come with garden or sea views. For added space, upgrade to a suite, which has a separate living room.
