Formerly The Golden Savoy, the 135-room Jumeirah Bodrum Palace juts out into the Aegean Sea, meaning all accommodation options – including suites, villas and a six-bedroom palace – have ocean views, as well as private terraces.
Dedicated event facilities at the hotel include The Lounge for 150 guests; a meeting room for 70; and a boardroom for ten. The main restaurant foyer can also be used for a 200-delegate reception and the Music Club can hold 500. Outdoor terraces can accommodate ten to 300. The venue can also be set up for concerts, with a podium/stage available with high-tech equipment.
There are 100 swimming pools – indoor and outdoor – at the resort, with 58 villas each boasting their own private pool. Other leisure facilities include a Talise Spa with 12 treatment rooms, a range of luxury hammams and a fully-equipped fitness centre.
F&B options comprise five restaurants, five bars and a shisha lounge. Finally, groups can take advantage of a wide range of water sports, including parasailing, windsurfing, water skiing, fishing, sailing and scuba diving.
Gerald Lawless, president and group CEO of Jumeirah Group, said: "Jumeirah Bodrum Palace is a truly spectacular luxury resort. We have worked closely with the owner to ensure that the full Jumeirah experience is delivered through the hotel and I am delighted to say that the improvements to the hotel have exceeded our expectations.
"I am confident our loyal guests from around the world will be impressed not only with the location and design, but also with the service standards for which Jumeirah is famous."
