In proximity to the vibrant spots in Bodrum, Caresse’s unbeatable location offers guests access to the true essence of this world-class destination.
Built to harmoniously blend with traditional local architecture, the style of Caresse is evocative of the low-rise, hillside villages that define the Turkish coastline. Overlooking the azure water of the Aegean Sea, the resort’s color palette is derived directly from nature, featuring hues of ochre and stone, complemented by verdant Mediterranean flora and vibrant mimosa. The distinct character of the destination extends through the resort’s chic public spaces, where shades of wood are offset by soft lighting to create a warm, contemporary feel and floor-to-ceiling windows showcase an inviting panorama of the bay at every opportunity.
The property offers 67 rooms, nine suites and the Caresse King villa, which are all inspired by the nautical and jet-setting lifestyle of the area. They have each been completed with the Luxury Collection Signature bed and private balcony, offering sweeping sea views and the famous moon rise of the Bodrum peninsula.
Caresse plays host to one of the finest spas on the peninsula, Spa Caresse. Tucked away in a serene area of the resort, the spa offers an extensive range of nurturing and revitalising treatments specially designed by ESPA and unique to Spa Caresse. Designed to rejuvenate and relax guests, the treatments fuse together local ingredients and ancient traditions. Sensory treatments are provided by ESPA with specially trained therapists and personalized sessions inspired by nature to nurture the mind and body. Signature treatments include The Caresse Retreat, combining Turkish herbs and local tangerines; a poultice massage to relax and ease muscle tension and tightness which uses delicious tangerine scents throughout. Coffee is also on the menu. Taking on a customary Turkish treatment, and instilling it with coffee to detoxify the body, Caresses’ traditional Turkish Hammam was crafted using natural products to purify and soften skin. Additional leisure facilities include a fitness center, a tennis court and indoor and outdoor pools. Guests can even enjoy a picnic among the Tangerine Orchards or set sail along the Aegean Coastline on a private yacht.
One of the highlights of the property is the enticing infinity pool perched just above the shoreline giving guests ultimate views of the bay and direct access to the immaculately designed teak decking that stretches along the white sand private beach. It is the perfect spot to soak up the sun in style.
Caresse’s two restaurants, La Plage and Glass, enable guests to embark on a journey of culinary discovery offering exceptional cuisines from the South Aegean and the Mediterranean. With stunning vistas over the Aegean Sea they act as the perfect vantage point to watch the moon rise over the peninsula as guests dine or sip their cocktail.
In regards to the destination, Caresse is seamlessly positioned for guests to experience all the treasures of Bodrum. Be it snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters, chartering a luxury yacht or traditional gulet and sailing around neighboring islands, or, simply wandering through picturesque villages and discovering the local tangerine orchards, there is plenty to discover. Not to mention that Caresse is a stone’s throw from one of the ancient wonders of the world, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus.
Caresse will enjoy its first full season this year.
