Hilton Bodrum Turkbuku Resort & Spa is surrounded by clear blue waters, beautiful beaches and natural coves. The peninsula is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and is only a short drive (four kilometers) from the harbour town of Turkbuku, an exclusive hideaway often described as the 'St Tropez' of Turkey. Turkbuku features a wealth of restaurants, shops and boutiques all set around its lively harbour. The resort is 22 kilometers from the busy resort of Bodrum and 50 minutes drive from Milas Bodrum Airport (BJV).
Offering a selection of evening restaurants Hilton Bodrum Turkbuku Resort & Spa offers upscale dining ideal for couples or families, including the signature Mediterranean restaurant, Paparazzi; the seafood restaurant, Seaport; the Italian restaurant, Patio Olivia; and Sultan Sofrasi, which serves locally inspired Turkish cuisine.

Most restaurants feature outdoor dining areas with beautiful views.
Guests can also enjoy a selection of bars, including the Sarnic Bar, Kicker's Pub, the A La Mer Bar, and the Lobby Bar as well as two poolside cocktail bars. For those looking for a night of partying, there is a disco within the resort where guests can dance until the early hours.
For conferences and events, the hotel has the spectacular 1,200 square meter Grand Phaselis Ballroom, three additional meeting rooms and a multi-purpose boardroom, all with natural daylight and superb views. The décor is highly contemporary and prior to an event, guests can drink cocktails on the large terrace with panoramic views over the bay.
