Time to relax

Nestled in a peninsular on Turkey’s Western coast, Bodrum is a beautiful vacation spot. Our hotel’s location couldn’t be more perfect; overlooking the sparkling bay and with a private Blue Flag beach right on your doorstep, you’ll find that the sea and sand is never too far away! Take a dip in the giant lagoon-style pool, sip a cocktail at one of the hotel’s three bars, take a stroll along the sandy beach or simply find a sun-lounger and soak up the gorgeous Mediterranean sunshine. If one beach isn’t enough, Bardakci Beach is also just a short walk away. The town’s main tourist beach is lined with restaurants and bars selling everything from fresh seafood to traditional Turkish meze.

Bodrum Town

This charming coastal town is a perfect example of traditional and modern life working in perfect harmony. If you fancy a break from the beach, head into Bodrum town to explore the historical sights. Bodrum Castle is a must-see; this medieval fortress dates back to the fourth century BC and was partly built with stones from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World! There are also plenty of markets and bazaars that fill the town, selling fresh fruit and vegetables, local cuisine and textiles. And when evening comes, why not treat yourself to some drinks in one of the trendy bars or restaurants that line the waterfront promenade? The town is just over 1km away and easily accessible by water taxi from the beach or the local dolmus.

Jump into some excursions

If you fancy a more active day out, why not join us on some of the optional excursions available on this holiday? With boat trips, market tours, village visits, buggy safaris, trips to surrounding Turkish cities and towns and so much more on offer, your holiday can be as action-packed or as relaxed as you like!

Useful Information

Visa Information
British citizens need a visa to travel to Turkey. You can apply for a visa online at www.evisa.gov.tr before you go. It costs US$20, payable by VISA/Mastercard debit or credit card only.

Transfer Time
Transfer time from Bodrum airport to Salmakis Resort & Spa is approximately 40 minutes.

More to Explore
You may wish to take an optional excursion during the course of your stay. Full details will be given at the Information Meeting. All tours can be paid for in sterling currency and preferably in cash only. Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00 per week. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.

Dress Code
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening, with the emphasis throughout being informal but with no shorts or vests in the restaurants in the evenings. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear.
