Marmaris, Turquoise Coast, Turkey

2

Surrounded by dramatic volcanic rocks and hillsides lush with almond trees, D-Hotel Maris stands in an unblemished nature reserve and looks towards the Aegean and Mediterranean. Repeat guests know to request a harbour-facing room for the best views and to make a point of sailing those turquoise-tinted waters aboard the resort’s 100ft yacht Pasa. Kayaking, diving and more can also be arranged at the watersports centre, five beaches provide variety and a spa offers refuge on rare rainy days. On summer evenings, dinner can be taken at an alfresco outpost of London’s Japanese restaurant Zuma or one of five other dining options. Wherever guests end up, service is sincere, the crowd sophisticated and the atmosphere carefree. An additional bonus is that it’s just a two-hour drive, or 25-minute helicopter transfer, from Dalaman airport
