The Bodrum Magic

Location, pampering, and exquisite service

When on a Balance Retreat, you’ll be staying at the legendary hotel The Marmara Bodrum, which is in a league of its own with intimate and refined luxury, stunning views, and a prime location close to the beach and Bodrum’s many attractions – including the marina, charming boutique streets, and Bodrum Castle. The wonderful staff are available around the clock, and the service is exceptional. The hotel has its own wellness center with hammam, pool, fitness centre, and spa, where you can indulge in a range of beauty treatments delivered by expert hands.

Plenty of time to explore town each day

Nestled within green hills and sparkling turquoise waters, lies Bodrum – a beautiful port city with a world class marina, narrow boutique streets and white houses jewelled with flowers. The vibe in Bodrum is truly unique! The city offers everything from the slightly hectic and hyped high society life, to the very down-to-earth village life, where you can still find the small “lokanta” where mum is in the kitchen preparing absolutely superb food.

Bodrum is in many ways different to other Turkish beach towns – perhaps because it was built over the ruins of the Ancient Greek city of Halicarnassus? Certainly, the atmosphere combines the best of both worlds, and it is a charming town to explore on foot. Don’t miss out on the delicious fresh food market on Fridays, the many classy beauty parlours, or the opportunity to commission professionally made gold jewellery with one of the excellent craftsmen in town.
