Text description provided by the architects. Swissotel Resort Bodrum Beach is a coastal development in Turgutreis, on the Bodrum peninsula, Turkey, located on a gently sloping site with unobstructed sea-views of the Turgutreis marina. The project consists of a hotel with 60 enclosed rooms, 46 apartments, and 27 residential villas as well as a generous spa, gym and pool complex.

GAD’s design reacts to the most pressing challenges inherent to this site; positioning a high density building on a site with a limited slope whilst providing a direct sea-view for each room.

The hotel, a twisting structure, is located on the highest point of the site and serves as the entry gateway to the development. A pedestrian path links the hotel lobby to the sea, bridging the light-flooded space to a seaside restaurant & bar at its other end, creating a focal point by the sea. This main axis structures the development and serves as a back-spine of the site’s circulation.

The apartment buildings and residential villas are arranged on a series of platforms, cascading down towards the sea, thus providing the maximum possible vista.

Conceptually, each villa has two levels with private rooms in the upper and a spacious living room at the garden level, offset fin walls, pushing out to the sides of the buildings, maximizing their facade and offering a sea-view for each room. Wooden screens & canopies add an additional layer of detail and also provide protection from the intense summer sun.
