In recent years, Turkey has grown in popularity as a holiday destination that offers sun, sand, sea and relaxation. Bodrum is a popular spot for tourists who like great nightlife and a wide choice of restaurants and bars.

Not far from Bodrum, a 5-star resort has recently opened on its own peninsula that juts out into the Mediterranean Sea. Xanadu Island is a 5-star resort that is aimed at holidaymakers looking for the ultimate relaxing retreat. Bodrum and Turgetris are easily reached by public transport from the peninsula, so those after a lively night out or two needn’t go without.

Transfers to Xanadu Island take just over an hour from Bodrum airport. The resort has a buffet restaurant and an onsite Italian restaurant that needs to be booked in advance in order to ensure a table. An amphitheatre showcases nightly entertainment, there are bars dotted around the island and a waiter service at the two onsite swimming pools.

Rooms at the 5-star resort are very spacious and offer either courtyard views or sea views if you’ve got a bit more to spend. Sea view balconies have great views of amazing sunsets across the ocean. The en-suite bathrooms are large with great facilities, or for a different type of bath, go to the Turkish bath in the onsite spa.

Xanadu Island is perfect for those that are after a relaxing stay in a hot 5-star resort. With everything you’d need packed onto a tiny peninsula, Xanadu Island is like a luxury cruise ship on land.
