Hotel Overview


Maçakizi is set on the hillside of Türkbükü on the Bodrum peninsula, 40km from Bodrum airport and 22km from Bodrum town.

Rooms at Maçakizi

Modern in style but homely in feel, the rooms are decorated in white with shots of vibrant colours in the cushions and artworks. King size beds feature in every room, and there is also a sofa bed available. There are welcome touches like the private patios and balconies, remote controlled blackout curtains, under floor heating and in the marble bathrooms, rain showers with views through large windows.

Food and facilities

The multi-tiered decking area is where you’ll find the hotel restaurant, beach club and bar, and where you’ll be whiling away the hours. Maçakizi’s restaurant is a much sought-after venue for its attractive, open air setting – looking out over the azure sea – and lip-smacking seafood created by talented chef Aret Sahakyan. Breakfast is a feast with a buffet and made-to-order omelettes. In the evening, head down to the bar for frozen cocktails and champagne as you rub shoulders with the hip crowd. Maçakizi also has a fantastic pool and spa: Nuxe offers various treatments and there’s even a pilates class available, too.

Activities at Maçakizi

When you’re not lounging on the sun deck with a book and a beer, you might be strolling down the beach at Göltürkbükü, or setting sail on a gulet from Türkbükü. For party-goers, there’s a handful of nightclubs just down the road from Maçakizi.
