Bvlgari to open new resort in Bodrum in 2026

Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement for a new property in Bodrum, Turkey, scheduled to open in 2026. 

The resort will occupy the tip of a 60-hectare peninsula between the bays of Türkbükü and Gölköy. 

Spread over 10 hectares of terraced Mediterranean gardens, it will comprise 84 rooms and suites. A total of 43 rooms will be located on various levels of the main cascading buildings, while 40 standalone villas with private pools will be set in the main garden overlooking the sea. 

A five-bedroom Bvlgari Villa will be situated within extensive landscaped gardens featuring a private, 25-metre swimming pool and exclusive stretch of beach. 

Facilities for relaxation, entertainment and dining will be located in the main building and throughout the estate. The Bvlgari Spa will feature a swimming pool with an outdoor deck and a fitness centre with a juice bar. 

A private sandy beach will offer watersports and sun decks with cabanas. 

There will also be a “theatrical hidden oasis enclave” dedicated to events and banquets, and a promenade village hosting luxury shops including a Bvlgari boutique. 

The resort will be surrounded by an exclusive residential community featuring 100 Bvlgari-branded ‘mansions’ of different categories, ranging from three to six bedrooms and featuring swimming pools, outdoor areas, balconies, terraces and private gardens.

Bvlgari said the project would be developed according to the best sustainability practices. 

Chief executive Jean-Christophe Babin said: “Bodrum and [the] Türkbükü-Gölköy coast area have been establishing themselves in the latest years as the ultimate glamorous destinations in the Mediterranean area, attracting the most prestigious and sophisticated clients who reach the region on their elegant yachts or love to stay in resorts. 

“We are thrilled to present such an amazing project which will become not only the first Bvlgari Resort in the Mediterranean Sea but also the new point of reference for the community of upscale and discerning travellers that already know and appreciate the other ‘gems of hospitality’ of the Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts Collection. 

“We envision the Bvlgari Resort Bodrum to shine as the ultimate sustainable luxury destination and experience in the region crafted by the Roman jeweller of Hospitality.”

Bvlgari Resort Bodrum will bring the brand’s collection of properties to 12. Last year, Bvlgari opened hotels in Rome and Tokyo, and will also welcome properties in the Maldives and Miami Beach in 2026.
