When Ayla Emiroğlu moved here in 1977,
There was little more than a few simple
houses, cars and stray cats in Bodrum. It was a
couple of thousand years after Homer talked
about the “wine-dark sea” of Aegean, but the
sprawling peninsula adorned with its sweet
orange and lime trees still possesed that
ancient beauty, a faint decadence where the
blinding rays of the sun meet the immersive
blue of the sea and sky.
“Bodrum was my freedom” says Emiroğlu, the
enchanting owner of Maçakızı, the hotel that
helped make this town a destination for the
The silvery leaves of century old olive trees
rustle in the cool night air. A glass of crisp
wine provides the perfect partnership to the
delicious and unique blends of flavors that
emerge from the open kitchen, every dish
is a work of art, lovingly created by
Aret Sahakyan’s genius hands.
Splashed against the sparkling waters
of the sea, Backed up by hills and adorned with
vibrant bougainvilleas Maçakızı is a world of
its own, Home to beauty lovers.
Start your day with a yoga class
by the crystal clear waters of the Aegean,
hit the gym for a personal training session or
relax your soul with a luxurious
body treatment at the spa.
My room is my heaven. A place to retreat and
revive to rest and recuperate to enjoy some
time alone before rejoining the party. To relax
and reconnect. A place to dress up or undress
my private sanctuary.
The sea is the embodiment of a supernatural
and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love
and emotion: It is the living infinite...
The globe began with the sea. So to speak:
And who knows if it will not end with it? In it
is supreme tranquility.
