Hotel is situated in 20-25 minutes cab drive from the town of Bodrum. If you are staying more than a week you would want to go to check the town at least 2 nights. Cab ride is round turn is 60-65 usd. Hotel provides shuttle buses but it is a longer ride, too many stops and in general no AC in the cars. If you are dressed up for a dinner, most likely you would enjoy a cab drive more.
Hotel is on the hill and has stunning views to Aegean see and surroundings. Because it is on the hill it takes 5 minutes golf car ride to get to the beach or a pleasant walk and many elevators. Beach offers large entertaining, renting of all water sport equipment, rides, etc.. We have tried a few and were very happy with the service. Beach area offers option of privacy and away from children if you wish. Has large beachside restaurant that serves delicious food just like any other restaurant on the grounds of the hotel.
Beach has a long but narrow stripe of sand not a powdery sand but more rocky. The rest of the beach is a fake grass , not my favorite . I loved that the umbrellas have a call button if you wish to order drink you just push the button ;) The service is great they walk around by the beach and pool area with refreshing facial cooling spray and ice cold towels to offer you.
It is never too hot in Bodrum as there is always that light breeze that does not let you faint from the sun.
My favorite part was by the pool area it is very luxury with wooden decks and wonderful scenery, convenience, clean and beautiful changing rooms and towel stands.
Rooms are very large and almost all have balcony overseeing the Aegean see, stunning sunrise. The restaurants and bar area of the Kempinski hotels are brilliant. Yes they are overprices and expect to pay 3 or4 times of the price that you can eat in Bodrum BUT the food is amazing, the atmosphere is wonderful. It is better if you book in advance as they get full very quickly. Breakfast is magnificent with thousands of fresh fruits and juices and healthy food options.
I tried Spa and was very pleased. I also went for a few early morning yoga classes on the deck –wonderful feeling.
I highly recommend this hotel. It offers you a feeling of the luxury and entertainment.
