We don’t know about a “hot girl” summer, but our ideal vacation is what we have dubbed the “Mediterranean girl” summer. What is that, you ask? Well, let’s just say it involves lazing around the Mediterranean shore, taking refreshing dips in the glistening coastal waters, and feeding on copious amounts of carbs, sorbet, and chilled beverages all day long. This summer, we lucked out. We found the absolute perfect spot to camp out: The METT Hotel & Beach Resort, Bodrum.

Nestled on the southwest bank of Türkiye, the former fishing village of Bodrum shares the confluence of the Aegean and the Mediterranean seas with neighboring Greece. Boasting a rich history narrated by the sunken treasures found under the turquoise waters, Bodrum, eternally imprinted by the Greek, Roman, and Ottoman empires, was first put on the tourist map when Turkish writer Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı was exiled in the coastal town. As he served his three-year sentence, he fell in love with the eternal blue riviera. Through his writings, Kabaağaçlı invited Türkiye’s high society to explore the seaside town and its fascinating sights.

Over the last few decades, Bodrum – with its perfect blend of historical wonders, beach clubs, and vibrant nightlife – has evolved into a tourist hotspot. Recognizing this, Dubai-based Sunset Hospitality Group – the geniuses behind some of Dubai’s favorite spots like Drift Beach, Sushi Samba, and Aura Sky Pool – decided to take roots in the Turkish Riviera with the stunning METT Bodrum Hotel & Beach Resort.

First Impressions

A 30-minute drive from the Bodrum Milas airport, the METT Hotel & Beach Resort is designed to impress you right from the first glimpse. Perched up on a cliff, the lobby of the luxury property welcomes guests to a relaxed environment, flaunting a breathtaking view overlooking the sea that can be enjoyed through the massive floor-to-ceiling window. If you manage to tear your eyes away from the view, you’ll notice that the lobby features sleek modern interiors drenched in a neutral color palette, an aesthetic that runs throughout the resort.

Speaking of the resort, the property features 72 elegant guest rooms, 31 premium accommodations equipped with private pools, five restaurants, a world-class spa, a fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool, a water sports center, and of course, a private beach.

While it’s hard to find a reason to leave the gorgeous resort, guests who wish to explore places like the Bodrum castle, marina, and market can reach the city center in under ten minutes by taxi.

Food Matters

Like we said earlier, our ideal vacation setting relies heavily on culinary delights. Fortunately, the hotel excels in serving a variety of cuisines. Start your mornings with a sumptuous breakfast served in the boho-chic Anjel restaurant with a side of mind-blowing views. Eager to try Turkish cuisine? Treat your tastebuds to a delicious traditional Turkish breakfast platter. Not the one to experiment? Dig into a conventional English breakfast or refreshing açaí bowls and avocado toast if that’s more your style.

Overlooking the majestic castle that looks particularly magical when lit up at night, the Isola Manzara restaurant promises a sumptuous feast both for your tastebuds and for your eyes. Inspired by the rich culinary traditions of Italy, Isola offers a relaxing dining experience from a late-afternoon aperitivo to a romantic dinner. The restaurant is essentially a gastronomic adventure featuring beloved Italian classics that uses only homemade pasta and the freshest ingredients. Pro tip: the fried calamari, ‘Risotto ai Funghi Porcini’, and ‘Lobster Linguine’ are a must-try.

Folie, the crown jewel of the METT Bodrum Hotel & Beach Resort, is the resident beach club that hosts some of Bodrum’s chicest parties throughout the summer. An elevated seaside sunbed platform and a boho-chic Mediterranean open-air restaurant define the unique dining concept. Folie – which translates to “madness” in French – welcomes guests to enjoy mouth-watering food, live-music performances, and energetic vibes by the sea.

With a wooden deck and private beach strip dotted with comfortable sun beds and unobstructed views of the blue horizon, Folie promises endless days of barefoot luxury. It is the ideal place to relax and sip on chilled beverages as you float on the sea hammock listening to groovy tunes. Treating you to an explosion of flavors, the restaurant’s highlight is the impressive fresh fish selection, where you can choose your seafood and fish daily to be grilled to perfection. The result? Each dish exudes freshness and simplicity, made even more delicious when savored together with the sights and sounds of the sea.

Sweet Surrender

While carefree days spent on the beach are certainly very relaxing, no stay at the METT Hotel & Beach Resort is complete without a trip to the Moi Spa. With a spacious indoor area and skilled therapists, the Moi spa is well-equipped to soothe, pamper, and de-stress your mind and body. The spa offers a range of rejuvenating treatments, but when visiting Türkiye, you don’t want to miss out on the traditional Turkish hammam. For the uninitiated, a hammam is a bath ritual originating in the Middle East that involves steam, full-body exfoliation, and a bath.
