Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum, Turkey

Presidential Villa

The pad: Spread across two floors, this bulletproof seven bedroom villa is an ultra-cool retreat beloved of Turkey’s glitziest set. Constructed using green-tinged local stone to blend seamlessly into the pines and gnarled olive trees, it sits on the tiered hillside of this ultra chic, 15,000 acre resort, which opened in 2014. Its modernist design includes dark grey marble floors, a striking cube fireplace and slick glass sliding doors, providing seemingly endless views of the Aegean. Its eight bathrooms feature quirky, free-standing, egg-shaped baths alongside oversized rainforest showers and there is also a steam room, fitness centre and sauna. Outside, there is a vast pool terrace where you can see your superyacht anchored in the bay.

Life’s a beach: Wrapped around the horseshoe-shaped Paradise Bay, the resort has two private beaches. Guests of the villa can enjoy the sandy surroundings from an enclosed cabana, with ice-cold beverages and shisha on demand from starch-collared waiters.

Dress to impress: The style factor at this resort could rival Saint-Tropez during the summer months – think stilettos, diamonds and handbag dogs. If you want to top up your wardrobe, the resort’s arcade of shops offers international favourites including Missoni Mare, Stella McCartney and Givenchy as well as Ottoman inspired jewellery and works by local artists.

Best by boat: Anchor in the sheltered bay and tender to the hotel’s jetty, just moments away from the Presidential Villa.

From €40,000 a night
