JW Marriott to open second property in Turkey

JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts announced the scheduled opening of its second Turkey location, the JW Marriott Bodrum, in May. The new JW Marriott Bodrum will combine traditional Turkish culture with contemporary design and signature services.

Located in the town of Yalikavak, the 107-room property will have its own private beach on the Aegean Sea with a dock for guests arriving by boat or going sailing. Diving sites, the Yalikavak Marina, the Bodrum castle and the Bodrum Amphitheatre will be within close proximity.

The approximately 6,562-square-foot spa will be opened in partnership with spa brands June Jacobs and Thalion. The spa will have 24 treatment rooms, a salt room and traditional Turkish baths.
