“Bodrum is fondly known as the Turkish St Tropez, and this unique location is the perfect complement to the Radisson Collection with its amazing natural environment and its status as one of the most popular tourism hotspots in Turkey,” said Elie Younes, EVP and CDO, Radisson Hotel Group. “We’re pleased to see the positive rebound in the Turkish tourism sector and are confident in its future outlook, especially with the increase in international tourist arrivals to Turkey, in particular from the traditional source markets of Russia, Germany and the UK.”  

The resort will have 120 rooms and suites that will open in two phases: 80 rooms will open initially; the remaining 40 rooms will open 12 months later. The property will have a spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and direct access to a private beach. 

The agreement selection process and negotiations were facilitated by Istanbul-based Access Hospitality Development & Consulting.
