Swimming pool with separate children’s pool. Pool towels supplied.
Nearest beaches - The hotels’ own beach directly in front of the hotel. There are plenty of boat trips available from Güllük that will bring you to beaches on the other side of the Gulf.
There is a small grocery shop with basic provisions just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. A local restaurant is situated adjacent to the beach front area. All the shops and restaurants of Güllük town are within an 8 minute drive.
Bodrum/Milas Airport is 15 minutes by car; Dalaman 2 hrs 15 mins
Medinn, a contemporary boutique hotel on the Bodrum Peninsula is situated just outside the village of Güllük.
A slightly incongruous building in this residential area of small bougainvillea covered white washed houses, this new hotel set directly on the beach is a jewel, offering high standard accommodation and a very relaxed atmosphere, absolutely perfect for a short break holiday as the airport is less than a 20 minute drive.
Each room is individually styled and the décor is stunning, very contemporary with clean lines and enhanced with colourful art and antique kilims and vintage decorative pieces. The Executive Suites are larger than the Junior Suites but all rooms feature separate sitting rooms and balconies with sea views. In the Executive Suites’ sitting room an opulent day bed provides the perfect place for gazing out over the bay. Extra beds are available for children in both the Junior Suites and the Executive Suites making either a great choice for a small family holiday.
The beach is directly in front of the hotel and there are plenty of sunbeds and shades, a long woden jetty with sun lounging mattresses extends out to the deeper water and the swimming xpool is surrounded with sun beds – the choice of where to relax is a hard one! A couple of jet skis are available for use by hotel guests along with a Laser dinghy.
A gourmet breakfast is available at whatever time you wish and is served at the pool side café. The main restaurant is set on the 5th floor, it is breath taking, it has a very chic interior, stunning sea views, wrap around glass doors all open to the cooling breeze and little cushion filled balconies perfect for pre dinner cocktails or after dinner coffee.
This is a truly personal service type hotel. The hotel provides a shuttle service to the village of Güllük with its great choice of restaurants.
A little information about Güllük
Just 10 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from Bodrum, Güllük is a traditional fishing village where daily life centres around the small fishing harbour.
After a nights’ fishing, the boats return home and the water’s edge is a hive of activity, the catch, mainly sea bass and bream, is packed into polystyrene boxes, weighed and loaded into refrigerated vehicles before the long journey to far flung places. But don’t despair, there’s plenty for everybody. Restaurants line the water’s front all offering a plentiful selection of mezes, grilled fish, prawns and calamari.
With so much sea, so many boats and plenty of captains there’s no shortage of daily boat tours, most of them call at the ancient site of Iassus, on the far side of the bay and then onto some of the small beaches not accessible by car. There’s no ancient history in Güllük but there are some rather splendid buildings, often hidden between the more recent development, two that have been recently restored date back only to the 30′s but their restoration has returned them to their former glory. The old Belediye (Council) building in its commanding position overlooking the sea has also recently been restored.
From the village centre it’s a pleasant walk along the palm lined sea shore, the walk can take you right along the coast line to the mouth of the Gulf. With three small beaches and early morning calm water there is no better place to take a stroll. From every point you have stunning views of the bay.
On Thursday’s it’s market day (it used to be Friday but the stall holders kept arriving earlier and earlier until it started on a Thursday!!), there’s not many of the Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger stalls but if it’s goats cheese, local olives, free range eggs or the freshest vegetables you’re looking for then it’s ideal.
Tefo Barbers is the gathering place for the men of the village, the shop is always full, but don’t worry if you’re in line for a shave, the wait won’t be too long as half of them have just popped in to pass a friendly word and get the latest football score.
On a summer evening everybody is out for their regular family promenade up and down the front, in high season the atmosphere is almost carnival like with street sellers selling sweets, peanuts, corn on the cob and lokma (hot donuts), children race up and down on their bicycles, and grandma has a leisurely çay (tea) and watches the generations of her family. Tea gardens abound and if you can manage to spend a Saturday evening in Güllük there’s bound to be a wedding or a circumcision celebration, the band plays, the whole village assembles, the older ladies sit sedately (well, as sedately as possible on a small green chair), youngsters take the opportunity to show off their dancing skills and toddlers zip back and forth across the dance floor on their tricycles!
