A New Turkish Hotel Opens with Stellar Views of the Aegean Sea

The intimate seaside inn has 10 rooms, a spa, and a restaurant with a Michelin-starred menu…

The azure blue waters of the Aegean Sea influence every inch of Il Riccio Beach House & Restaurant—a seaside hotel and restaurant in Bodrum, Turkey that opened in June. The predominately white color palette within the inn is accentuated with blue wooden tables, hand-painted majolica tiles, and curvaceous interiors—design elements that seamlessly mirror the sea.

Each of the hotel’s 10 rooms and suites feature handmade Italian ceramic floors, twice-a-day housekeeping services, and expansive patios. Also boasting exceptional outdoor terraces that practically kiss the coastline is Il Riccio’s restaurant, which showcases a Michelin-starred menu of fresh seafood and Italian cuisine. Three lively bars serve up spirits and snacks. Spa amenities include two Turkish baths, a sauna, and a gym. (ilricciobodrum.com
