Hotel Lavanta Hotel Hotel 3 star

Mevkii, Papatya Sok. 32, Yalikavak Bodrum, Turkey
Amy Adejokun Section editor

It might not be the most obvious choice but the Lavanta Hotel is a real hidden gem. High up in the hills of Yalikavak, this place is a tranquil spot for anyone who will appreciate some old-school Turkish hospitality. In a magical and romantic corner of the Bodrum peninsula, while the hotel might not be on the doorstep of all the must-see tourist sites, it can certainly be proud of its wonderful service; that and the incredible views at sunset!

    Location 3.36 /10

    Overlooking the bay of Yalikavak, the Lavanta Hotel is still a mile or so from the town centre, while Bodrum's town centre and Milas-Bodrum international airport are about 10 miles and 34 miles away respectively.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The comfortable 30m˛ rooms at the Lavanta Hotel feature large beds, timber floors and traditional pine furnishings that create an incredibly warm ambiance. The hand woven Turkish rugs and embroidery artworks in each room give it that extra 'homey' feeling. On top of that, all rooms are clean, non smoking, benefit from lots of light and are equipped with either a balcony or terrace. The bathrooms are spotless, decorated in a pleasant aqua blue scheme, complete with charming fish tile details.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Driving up the steep driveway and seeing the hotel's exterior for the first time does not prepare you for the little 'Garden of Eden' that awaits you on the other side. This 14 year old hotel is renovated every year to ensure its facilities don't lose their shine. There are eight rooms and eight suites across three buildings; each one decorated differently, each one decorated with care. The hotel terrace overlooks the pool and the town below, nestled in a delightful and utterly charming garden bursting with roses of all hues. The pool is large and benefits from direct sunlight yet there is still a garden and BBQ area next to it where guests can unwind underneath the shade of the trees. From hibiscus to bougainvillea, the garden is well looked after. In addition, the hotel roof terrace also boasts great views, and is used for, in the owner's words, "sunset parties" where guests can enjoy a glass or two from one of the best vantage points in Bodrum.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The bright and breezy breakfast buffet is in a cosy corner of the hotel that opens up onto the terrace. Inside, paintings by past guests (some professional artists, others not) adorn the walls and give you the feeling you are visiting somebody's home and not taking breakfast at a hotel. Make sure to take advantage of the complimentary afternoon tea - served here and on the terrace - and savour the scrumptious homemade cakes.

    Beach 6.45 /10

    The Lavanta Hotel is some distance from the closest beach but there are several choices should you use private transport; the Xuma and Dodo beach clubs are a couple of miles away (there is an admission fee to use the sun loungers and parasols etc), or the public beaches of Yalikavak and Magi, are also a short car ride away.

    To know

    The Lavanta Hotel is a wonderful choice for people who want to enjoy the romance of their surroundings. Being that it is such a quiet place it's less suited to families with children who need to be constantly entertained. The hotel is open between May and October.

      Run by a lovely Turkish husband and wife team, what was once a struggling family auberge is now a chic yet unpretentious boutique address. The antithesis of the huge, brash all-inclusive clubs that are so characteristic of the Bodrum area, the 4 Reasons Hotel + Bistro will impress not only for its local charm but for the excellent and personalised service from its hosts. Indeed, the '4 reasons' are serenity, design, quality and attitude; four areas where they wish to excel - and so far they haven't done a bad job!

      The Golden Age Hotel is a huge all inclusive property that is popular with a mostly British and European clientele. Built in 2001, there have not been any recent renovations to the resort and while its official classification is that of four stars, it feels closer to a very big three star hotel.

      The Delta Beach Resort is one of the larger all inclusive properties situated in the small fishing village of Yalikavak. With almost everything you could possibly need on-site, you may get the feeling you don't need to leave; whether this is a good or bad thing is up to you. On the other hand, the resort feels like a real four star hotel and not a three star hotel posing as a four star hotel!

      On impact alone, Casa Dell'Arte hits the spot. As its name suggests, this beautiful hotel in a tranquil corner of Bodrum is indeed a 'house of art'. Classy and modern yet unpretentious, the Casa Dell'Arte is for lovers of art, or even just lovers... From the exquisite art collection to the attentive but discreet service, no detail has been forgotten. Owned by a prominent art collecting family from Istanbul (where they run an art gallery), the Casa Dell'Arte attracts a who's who of Turkey's movers and shakers. But even mere mortals head to this sleek boutique address to admire the wonderful art and bask in the sunshine in style.

      LUX* Bodrum Resort & Residences opened its doors for the first time in June 2017. It's the first Mauritian facility in the Mediterranean. Just like all hotels, this place plays with the concept of "Lighter and Brighter," but it also plays with the concept of "Reasons to Go", (these are just a few good reasons to stay at LUX* Bodrum Resort & Residences) to show and priotise their clients priviledges.

      If you had to describe the Doria Hotel Bodrum in just a few words, they would be: beautiful, peaceful and enchanting. The establishment opened in 2007 and it is a jewel of a place, to be fiercely guarded. Its location on the heights of Bitez affords a splendid view of the sea, which can be contemplated from anywhere in the hotel. The Doria Hotel Bodrum is definitely the perfect place for a romantic stay.
