D-Hotel Maris

Datça Peninsula, nr Marmaris, ££££

D-Hotel Maris is a new hotel set high on a cliff overlooking a completely private and secluded bay, with five separate beaches. This is unquestionably the finest resort hotel on the southern Turkish coast, and the 200 rooms facing seawards enjoy really stunning views over the island-strewn Aegean Sea. The superb position is matched by the facilities on offer: five private blue-flag beaches, a world-class water sports centre, possibly the best spa in Turkey (ESPA), a National Geographic Dive Centre, a private 100-foot gulet and smaller motor yachts, a tennis academy and a first-class fitness centre. The various dining options are also very fine, but above all, the hotel staff are all of the highest calibre so that the welcome and levels of service are truly excellent.

Insider Viewpoint

Although at first sight the building is not a great beauty, the position is wonderful and the quality of the renovation and professionalism of the staff make for a really strong first impression. Staying at D-Hotel Maris is a very elegant experience, the rooms are extremely comfortable with marvellous views and the water sports and spa facilities are truly world-class. This is a superb resort hotel where you can easily spend your whole holiday, but which is equally suited to a few nights before or after your gulet charter.

Elegant experience, beautiful location, splendid views.
