The team behind the Serafina Restaurant Group and Serafina Beach Hotel has opened the Serafina Mare Deluxe Residence, a boutique resort on the Bodrum Peninsula in Gundogan, Turkey. The property has 18 residential-style suites with one to three bedrooms, a beach club and waterfront restaurant concept, Serafina Mare.

The newest member of the Serafina family comes just over a year after the launch of Serafina Beach Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which opened in March 2018 in the Condado District. 

Fabio Granato, Serafina co-owner, said the restaurant and beach club would be the focal point of the serviced apartments. "While many hotel brands don’t see large returns on their food and beverage operations, we have really flipped that model and built our recipe for success around a vibrant restaurant and bar scene, complimented by sleek and stylish suites," Granato said. Serafina Mare, the resort’s signature restaurant, serves Italian-inspired fare, and has alfresco seating on a deck and lawn. The space becomes a nightclub in the evening.
