Hotel of the week: D-Resort Grand Azur in Marmaris, Turkey
D-Resort Grand Azur is a stunning resort on Turkey’s Turquoise Coastline, and one that completely distinguishes itself from the other resorts in the region, both in terms of style and level of luxury. As the only non-all inclusive in Marmaris, D-Resort Grand Azur offers a truly luxurious experience; everything from the setting to the atmosphere (live jazz music over dinner), plentiful and helpful staff, a secluded beach surrounded by imported white sand, lush gardens and majestic mountains all contribute to the divine feeling of being there.
It’s a stunning, newly renovated property, ideally situated between two mountain ranges with beautiful views of the coastline. D-Resort Grand Azur exudes architectural style with its sleek, curving profile, nestled in exotic gardens and just steps from a magnificent beach. From the setting to the décor, everything here is in line with its 5-star status. Greeted by a lobby dressed in soft creams and a glittering art deco chandelier you will find rooms designed in soft, muted colour schemes, with clean lines, wet room showers and contemporary touches. Upstairs you’ll find chic and spacious rooms and suites all of which are newly renovated and come with a good sized and child-safe balcony.
The resort offers plenty to do boasting a well-equipped gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, flood-lit tennis courts and water-sports facilities on the beach. There is a dedicated children’s pool with a lazy river and water slide. The Azur spa sauna, steam room, Turkish bath and solarium offers a wide range of massage and health treatments to leave you feeling like a new person.
The hotel is brilliantly located in an enviable spot on the seafront and lies only a short distance from the centre of town, which is easily accessed by mini-bus, taxi or simply a leisurely stroll. Its Blue Flagged beach is beyond inviting, with imported white sand trucked in from Egypt that neither gets too hot nor sticks to bare feet. Imposing mountains line the far side of its quiet, glassy sea, with water so incredibly clean and clear you can see what colour polish is represented in your holiday pedicure the entire time you swim.
We recommend the 5th floor suites for their luxury, design and spectacular views.
Standard Sea view rooms start from £135 per night incl half board.
