Considered to be the best hotel in the Turkish Riviera, the D-Maris Hotel is located at the Datca Peninsula. It is situated up on the hillside which offers to the visitors breathtaking views of the of the Mediterreanean Sea. The hotel is surrounded by pine tree forests, small seckluded islands and volcanic mountains. It is situated where the Mediterrranean meets the Aegean Sea, where anyone can enjoy relaxing moments in the natural private beaches.

As far as the interior design is concerned, the D-Maris epitomizes the notion of luxury in every aspect combining the exotic elements of the East and modernity of the West through the notion of minimalism. The D-Maris is designed in natural stone and all material used for its construction is totally compatible to the surroundings. Dark wood, limestone and Turkish marble are the main elements that were used in creating its premises.

A couple of months ago, ESPA, the D- Maris Hotel spa ,opened its doors after the latest renovation and offers the visitor a great opportunity to relax and enjoy traditional Ottoman spa services such as the opulent marble Hammam room and escape into an oasis of peace and relaxation. There is a vitality pool, seven treatment rooms, a relaxation lounge and one Private Spa Suite. Male and female changing rooms offer their own heat experiences with experience showers, ice fountain, a sauna with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gardens for men and a steam room for women.

At the egde of the Aegean sea, one can enjoy swimming in the crystal clear waters and sunbathing in one of the five private beaches covered with pearly sand imported from Egypt, always respecting the surrounding nature. Each one of the beaches has its own characteristics and vibe depending on what the visitor seek. Each one of the five stunning natural sanded beaches offers their own individual concept for guests at D-Hotel Maris; Bay beach has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag rating. The Bay is largest beach, also features DJ performance in the afternoon and offers for lunch à la carte snack menu and dinner buffet; the “Breeze” beach is located next to the Aegean restaurant; the “Silence” beach is for those wishing a quieter area to relax; the “Executive” beach features six stylish cabanas especially dedicated for Executive Club Lounge guests and “Coliseum” beach at the tip of the peninsula benefits from both the calmer sea and windier side.
