The EV hotel

Everything is dramatic about the EV hotel.They are simply styled in sharp white, and each one has a balcony, towelling sofa, plasma TV, CD player and adjustable mood lighting. The fully equipped kitchens boast Smeg appliances and the bathrooms include Jacuzzis. This hotel was built for relaxation, and even those who tire of lazing in the sun on the towelling day beds need not get bored, as there are eight outdoor pools, a spa and fitness centre. Staff will create a tailored ‘personal wellness program of rejuvenation and replenishment’ for each guest.

Turkey’s elite have long flocked to the southern Aegean resort town of Bodrum for its calm azure seas (great for snorkeling and sailing) and its proximity to Lycian, Roman, and Ottoman ruins. The area’s latest addition is EV Türkbükü, a hilltop hotel designed by Turkish architect Eren Talu. It’s not hard to stay under the radar here: with 48 rooms and eight heated pools (you do the math), your privacy is guaranteed whether you take a dip outside or in the whirlpool in your ultramod, white-on-white room. Plasma-screen televisions and 24-hour butler service will please the most reclusive of travelers—true lovers of seclusion may even choose to skip the hotel’s restaurant and whip up dinner in their own fully equipped gourmet kitchen. But if you’re ready to emerge once the sun sets, head down the hill for Bodrum’s renowned hedonistic pursuits: the bars and clubs here stay open till dawn.
The EV opened two years ago, the latest of Turkbuku’s growing crop of boutique crash pads aimed at the globe-trotting elite. It includes Maca Kizi, which is owned by Sahir Erozan, a habitué of Washington high society who was behind such trendy restaurants in the capital as Cities and Leftbank, and which offers its own tranquil private beach club.
