Bodrum, Turkey. Bodrum, Turkey.

The first Hyatt Centric resort in Turkey will debut with the opening of the 77-key Hyatt Centric Yalikavak Bodrum in mid-2019, after an affiliate entered into a franchise agreement with Özkent Girisim Gayrimenkul Yatırım ve Ticaret A.S.

Hyatt Centric Yalikavak Bodrum will be managed by Access Tourism and Hotel Investment Consultancy Ltd. The property will mark the fifth Hyatt-branded hotel in Turkey, joining Park Hyatt Istanbul – Macka Palas, Grand Hyatt Istanbul, Hyatt Regency Istanbul Ataköy, Hyatt Centric Levent Istanbul, and Hyatt House Gebze, which is slated to open in September 2017.

“The brand is designed for millennial-minded guests who see themselves as savvy-explorers and we look forward to the brand’s continued growth throughout the region,” said Hyatt senior vice president, acquisition and development, Europe, Africa, Middle East and South West Asia Peter Norman.

“We are very excited to announce Özkent’s collaboration with Hyatt to open Hyatt Centric Yalikavak Bodrum, the first Hyatt Centric beach resort in Europe, which will offer high-end vacation experiences in one of the most prime bays of Bodrum”, said VARYAP’s CEO Erdinç Varlıbaş. 

The hotel is located minutes from the five-gold-anchor marina Palmarina Bodrum, which offers a number of restaurants, an open-air shopping mall and entertainment venues. Hyatt Centric Yalikavak Bodrum will be easily accessible from Milas-Bodrum Airport, which offers both national and international direct flights.

Guests will enjoy views of Turkey’s southwest coast from the hotel’s 77 guestrooms with private gardens and balconies. The hotel’s five food and beverage venues will offer both local and international cuisine. Hyatt Centric Yalikavak Bodrum will also offer a spa, as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools and will be located in close proximity to a beach club. The hotel will also feature more than 544 square metres of conference and events space.

Often referred to as the “St. Tropez of Turkey,” the Bodrum Peninsula is one of the most popular and upscale destinations on the Turkish Riviera.

Hyatt Centric is expected to debut in the Middle East with the arrival of Hyatt Centric The Palm Dubai sometime in 2019.
