Enjoy One Of The Finest Hotels In Turkey Whilst Exploring The Area’s Ancient Footsteps Too….
Looking for a trip that combines an ancient city with a fascinating culture and heritage with one of the most beautiful and luxurious hotels in Turkey? There is only one place to head to this season as Kempinski Hotel Barbaros Bay, set just outside of the historical city of Bodrum, launches its new three-day Turkish Delights Break. The new break takes in the best that Bodrum has to offer, including an exciting gastronomic journey and personal encounters with quirky local artists, all whilst staying at one of the most glamorous spots on the Aegean Coast.
Each moment of Kempinski Hotel Barbaros Bay’s new break will be a feast for all the senses, which starts with the arrival at this sophisticated hotel, with stunning views of the Aegean Peninsula that can be enjoyed with a relaxing drink at one of the hotel’s eleven dining options.
There are endless gastronomic delights for foodie fans as the Aegean region is famed for its rich collection of herbs, vegetables, olive oil and endemic plants. Kempinski Hotel Barbaros Bay can treat guests to a sumptuous tour of these local delicacies with their Executive Chef. After a typical village breakfast of olives, herbs, cheese, eggs and delicious fresh bread, the Chef will take guests to visit the local street markets that showcase produce from the local area.
The afternoon continues with a delightful visit to an artisanal farm in nearby Selia, which produces its own wine, goat’s cheese, olive, jams and bread only using traditional methods. A sommelier will accompany guests during the tour while offering them a glass of the region’s finest wine.
Guests can channel their inner Picasso in Bodrum’s artisan spot as they are taken to a local artist to the nearby art village, Dibeklihan, famed for its many artists and different forms of art from painting to glass. Guests will have the chance to try out the different art forms and visit a wide array of interesting sights whether it be the ethnography museum or charming stone houses.
Culture vultures have the option of taking a breath taking journey along the incredible coast and go back in time to learn about the many civilisations that lived in Bodrum, mythological heroes that have conquered the land and visit the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus – one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
When not jet setting around magnificent Bodrum, Kempinski Hotel Barbaros Bay is the perfect place to kick back, relax in all areas of the hotel. The hotel famously launched its Silent Beach those that really want to switch off and indulge in their surroundings. The Sublime Sundeck is the best place to enjoy a cocktail while watching the sun go down, with the sound of chilled out beats in the background, played by the hotel’s resident DJ. For spa buffs, the Kempinski Spa is a heavenly sanctuary to spend time in – 5,500 square metres that house an indoor pool, sauna room and tradition Turkish hammam and offer divine spa treatments such as Watsu and Shirodhara.
