Story of Maçakızı
Maçakızı was established in 1977 by Ayla Emiroğlu as a pension and a private beach located in Bodrum town. The original aim was to create an inspiring environment for writers, painters and intellectuals. Over the years, Maçakızı continued to evolve and grow in line with Bodrum’s increasing popularity. The seeds of the Maçakızı concept have flourished under the contemporary vision and guidance of Ayla’s son Sahir Erozan. Since 2000, Maçakızı has been located in the elegant town of Türkbükü on the Bodrum peninsula. Maçakızı has been transformed from a bohemian bed & breakfast into a beautiful boutique hotel with a private beach and world-renowned restaurant.
