LUX* RESORTS AND HOTELS’ OPEN THEIR FIRST AEGEAN SEA RESORT – LUX* BODRUM
LUX* Resorts & Hotels has added to its growing portfolio with the opening of LUX* Bodrum on 17th June 2017.
LUX* Bodrum is a sparkling new addition to Turkey’s Aegean Riviera, one of Turkey’s most glamorous holiday destinations. Perched on a picturesque pine-clad site and surrounded by rocky coves, the brand new resort lies on the southwestern coastline, on a private peninsula with its own exclusive bay. Setting it apart are the spectacular sea views, private beach and breathtaking sunsets that can be enjoyed from every angle.
Tucked away along the Bodrum peninsula, the resort lies in a sheltered cove, away from the crowds of Bodrum City. Offering 91 guest rooms, 19 private residences and an exclusive beach house with its own private yacht anchorage, LUX* Bodrum is the perfect base to explore the beauty, culture and history of Bodrum.
LUX* Bodrum Resort & Residences has already won the silver A’Design Award in the category for Architecture, Building and Structure Design with all rooms and suites offering exceptional 180-degree ocean views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The three-room villas with private terrace and balcony provide ideal accommodation for large families. Pure clean lines and bespoke furnishing complement the award-winning architecture. As well as a picture-perfect private beach with vast blue waters of the Aegean Sea, LUX* Bodrum also has a 20m swimming pool for a refreshing swim.
Paul Jones, LUX* Resorts & Hotels’ CEO comments: “For LUX*, this is a fantastic addition to the portfolio, bringing the LUX* brand to the shores of the Mediterranean. LUX* Resorts & Hotels is well known for the innovations it has brought to the tourism industry, as well as offering world-class service standards, and now, LUX* Bodrum takes our reputation further.”
Beside LUX* Bodrum’s stretch of shoreline, guests gravitate to LUX* Bodrum’s atmospheric bar, restaurant and club lounge to relax in day beds or soak up the sunshine on the wooden deck. By night, DJs take to the decks and mixologists get shaking.
Bringing a fresh breath of LUX*-style island living to Turkey’s most scenic and cosmopolitan destination, a curated calendar of the group’s popular ‘expert-led workshops’ guided by creative artists and leading specialists will run throughout the year. Guests can discover a plethora of new and unique skills such as Sri Sri Yoga, try their hand at the art of water marbling or take part in a stained-glass workshop.
Wellbeing and pampering are assured from the LUX* ME Wellness Centre, a destination to rebalance and rejuvenate, rest and re-energise. Five elegant treatment rooms deliver a wide choice of facials, massages and specialist therapies using locally produced therapeutic essential oils. Guided by Wellness Experts guests can enjoy indoor and outdoor fitness programmes, ranging from Pilates to open-air on-deck yoga, and tailor-made fitness training sessions.
When it comes to cuisine, LUX* Bodrum is a sophisticated and delightful combination of the traditional and the innovative. Its restaurants feature fresh, seasonal produce and dining is a feast, taking cues from Bodrum’s Mediterranean and Asian neighbours. Stella, the resort’s Italian restaurant reveals the talent of Executive Chef Baris Torcu and LUX*’s Corporate Chef Walter Lanfranchi.
Stay with LUX*, and surprises and delights await round every corner, ranging from thoughtful little perks to indulgent extras. Phone Home is always there, allowing guests to phone anywhere in the world for free from the LUX*s iconic red phone box. Guests can also look for a Message in a Bottle hidden in the grounds, which may reveal a free dinner for two, or a spa treatment. Cinema Paradiso the hotel’s open-air ocean-facing amphitheatre, will screen cult classics and blockbusters under the stars. Coffee connoisseurs can discover the magic behind LUX* Bodrum’s house-roasted ethically sourced blends at Cafe LUX*. LUX* knows the best holidays involve ice-cream. Served in made-in-front-of-you waffle cones, ICI comes in a fantastic range of flavours – all created and prepared by LUX*’s own ice-cream specialists. If the treats of a LUX* stay makes a soul hungry for more, the Tree of Wishes may come in handy.
