In the private Haremtan Cove, Turkey, the new 105-key METT Hotel & Beach Resort Bodrum will open on 1 May 2021. The five-star beachfront lifestyle resort sits right opposite the old town of Bodrum, just 38 km from the nearest airport. METT Bodrum is designed to bring the best of social living, ensuring time spent outdoors is unforgettable and time spent indoors is perfectly relaxed. Sitting right on the Aegean Sea with its myriad shades of blue water, METT Bodrum puts the art of dining and entertainment at the heart of its experience.
The property has 72 elegant and beautifully designed rooms and suites as well as 33 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom luxury villas harmoniously disseminated around, overlooking the sea. For an extraordinary guest experience, there is the luxurious 240sqm 4-bedroom Villa Ak Ana with its 13-metre infinity pool, large private terrace and winter garden, set high-up overlooking the old town of Bodrum and its ancient fort.
A true dining destination in itself, METT Bodrum is home to four restaurants designed to suit the every mood of guests and visitors throughout their stay. Looking to spend a day by the sea? FOLIE Restaurant & Sea is the perfect place to sip on rosé wine while soaking up the sun and sampling a selection of Mediterranean dishes inspired by the riviera. Later in the day, head to MOOD Lounge to enjoy cocktails and pan-Asian bites on one of its five different terraces while watching the sun set to the sound of a DJ set. If Italy beckons, ISOLA, set in the beautiful Manzara Garden, combines quality Italian food with carefully chosen entertainment to carry guests from lunch to late dinner and evening drinks. For an authentic local taste, OTTO’s indoor-outdoor settings create the right surroundings for those looking to uncover its modern twist on the diverse and delicious Turkish cuisine.

Additional experiences at the property include an art gallery curated by contemporary artist Laura Margarita where unique pieces are displayed for the pleasure of guests as well as a small boutique with fine selection of resort wear, from locally sourced kaftans to bohemian chic jewellery for sale. Rest of the facilities include MOI Spa, an 850sqm spa with traditional Turkish Hammam, steam bath, infrared sauna alongside other services, as well as RAISE Fitness & Wellness, a new gym concept promising to be inclusive rather than exclusive, where guests can stay fit during their holidays, either with a personal trainer or on their own.
For the more adventurous ones, hotel staff can accommodate any request made by the guests from watching the sunset from a boat, day-trips and picnics at sea, tennis lessons in nearby courts, or arrange a relaxing day in private cabanas, and massage treatments in their room.
Price starts from £230 / night for a Deluxe Garden room to £5,000 / night for a luxury 260 sqm private villa with its own garden and infinity pool overlooking Old Bodrum.
