Turkey is making a bold comeback. In 2018, the number of visitors increased around 22 percent from the same period the year before, to 36 million. Additionally, new Istanbul Airport will be one of the world’s busiest hubs, shuttling more than 90 million people annually. The savviest of them will make a bee-line for the coast.
The hot new under-the-radar luxury travel destination is the seaside city of Bodrum, Turkey. The port city has been dubbed the “St.Tropez of Turkey” for its luxury hotels, beach clubs, food scene, and the abundance of superyachts drifting in its turquoise waters. While Europeans have been vacationing there for years, it’s been long overlooked by American travelers.
Both Condé Nast Traveler and Bloomberg named Bodrum one of the best places to travel in 2019, with Bloomberg suggesting travelers skip “overdeveloped Bali in favor of Bodrum, where a five-star-resort renaissance is under way.” The publication pointed out the recent high-profile openings in Bodrum of trendy luxury resorts such as Six Senses and Edition Hotels.
“With slick infinity edge pools facing the Aegean, celebrity-approved beach clubs, spas with steamy hammams, and sunbathing nooks shrouded by olive groves, the see-and-be-seen destination is a revitalized alternative to St.Tropez and Mykonos” Bloomberg wrote of Bodrum.
