Restaurant Macakizi Boutique hotel with legendary waterfront dining room
It's known by many as a luxury boutique hotel on Bodrum's posh northern stretch of Turkbuku, but to villa-owning residents and Turkish elite it's a prized beach club restaurant in one of the area's very best locations. Sprawling-out in front of a series of two-story villas adorned with flowering bougainvillea and olive trees, an outdoor dining room is concealed under triangular white canopies over a teak deck the touches the pristine blue waters of the harbor. Chunky teak outdoor furnishings compliment a sprawling waterfront beach club (minus an actual beach) by day with direct access to a neighboring swimming cove perfect for leisurely lunches while watching pretty people swim with endless bottles of Rose and evening suppers that last till 12am.
