Truly a beloved property
HOME TO BEAUTY LOVERS
Splashed against the sparkling waters
of the sea, Backed up by hills and adorned with
vibrant bougainvilleas Maçakızı is a world of
its own, Home to beauty lovers.
Maçakızı is the Queen of Spades, a symbol of intelligence and beauty that, in fact, inspired a fellow Bodrum lover to name the hotel for Ms. Emiroglu. Infused with her sophisticated, yet subtle style, what started as a small pension in downtown Bodrum turned into one of the most cherished temples of laid-back luxury in the Mediterranean. Her magnetic personality created an atmosphere that drew crowds of intellectuals and artists to this quaint little town. Where else could you run into Ahmet Ertegün, Mick Jagger and Nureyev having a lavish lunch by the sea but Ayla’s table…
Then came along her son, Sahir Erozan, who had been writing his own success story in a different part of the world, in Washington D.C. He was the maverick that created several hip restaurants and clubs in the U.S. capital. He vaguely remembered the smell of jasmine in the garden of his mother’s little pension in Bodrum. But it was during a trip in the early 1990’s that he fell in love with the peninsula again and decided to work with his mother first in her second beach club project in Gölköy, and then the property that we know and love today as Maçakızı Hotel in Türkbükü.
An eye for details in each accommodation
Gerhard and Gabriel were just there… and they were fully seduced.
Indeed, be amazed by the “home away from home” comfort found in each room and suites… or Villa at Maçakizi, all well hidden in the bougainville and the surrounding nature… a beauty that is only perceived once on property.
The silvery leaves of century old olive trees
rustle in the cool night air. A glass of crisp
wine provides the perfect partnership to the
delicious and unique blends of flavors that
emerge from the open kitchen, every dish
is a work of art, lovingly created by
Aret Sahakyan’s genius hands.
Start your day with a yoga class
by the crystal clear waters of the Aegean,
hit the gym for a personal training session or
relax your soul with a luxurious
body treatment at the spa.
The sea is the embodiment of a supernatural
and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love
and emotion: It is the living infinite…
The globe began with the sea. So to speak:
And who knows if it will not end with it? In it
is supreme tranquility.
