Certainly Bodrum’s best boutique hotel, Maçakızı’s modern architecture somehow blends perfectly with its natural surroundings, especially the bold bougainvillea flowers. The beautiful private suites overlook the hotel’s private beach, while the winding stairs all around the estate direct guests down through a spa, gym, restaurant, and bar. The hotel has also become quite famous for its excellent cuisine and perfectly mixed cocktails.
