Strategically placed on the coast in Turkey, looking out over the Aegean Sea, and near the Dodecanese islands, Marmaris has a rich history, with a castle that was conquered by Alexander the Great. It’s generally the crystal-blue waters that bring tourists here these days, though, and bars, restaurants and resorts stretch along the waterfront for miles. If you’re thinking of visiting, here’s our pick of the best hotels in Marmaris to suit every budget – now bookable with Culture Trip.
