Where Celebrities Vacation in Bodrum

Celebrities Vacation in Bodrum

Istanbul and Bali may be the hottest spots in Turkey, but for something less well-known, look no further than Bodrum. With its chic beach clubs, world-class restaurants and bustling marina full of superyachts gliding into its turquoise waters, this coastal peninsula has become the new St Tropez of Turkey – drawing global power players as well as discerning travellers alike.

Kate Moss and Bill Gates, two of the world’s most well-known celebrities, often visit Bodrum during their summer breaks. Despite being in the spotlight, these high-profile travellers prioritize spending time outdoors enjoying life rather than making headlines.

Spending your holiday at one of Bodrum’s luxury hotels is an ideal way to maximize your experience. Choose from high-end establishments such as Mandarin Oriental, Hilton Bodrum Turkbuku Resort & Spa or Aqua Fantasy Aquapark Hotel & Spa for a truly special trip.

For the best views, try staying at a resort with an infinity swimming pool on its terrace. These may be more expensive than other hotels, but they also come with additional perks and provide more privacy.

Visitors to the Bodrum Peninsula often take day trips to the stunning Turquoise Coast for some sun and relaxation. It’s best to visit during the shoulder months of May, June, September and October when temperatures will be just right for a dip in the sea without feeling too oppressed by heat.
