Grand Pasa Hotel

Perfectly located, just 300m from bars, restaurants and shops, Grand Pasa Hotel is more than just a well-placed complex. Against its picturesque mountain backdrop, the large, contemporary hotel caters to your every need, with a large pool and multiple waterslides. A luxury spa, spacious bedrooms and restaurant serving up a varied menu encourage you to spend your entire holiday at Grand Pasa Hotel, but with the beach just 500m away and the Marmaris town centre an easy walk as well, exploring is a must.

Overview of Marmaris

No two holidays to Turkey are ever the same, particularly if you choose to explore different regions. A really mysterious and exotic country, it offers a blend of gorgeous beaches, unique culture, ancient history and the most delicious food. In Dalaman, Marmaris is a truly multifaceted town that you’ll fall for whether you’re a night owl, beach lover or want to learn more about the local culture. There’s so much happening here, you’ll leave feeling refreshed, educated and energised.

Things to do in Marmaris

Blue Flag Marmaris Beach is a perfect stretch of sand for topping up your tan, but you can also make the most of the adrenaline-pumping watersports, so now’s the time to try jumping on a water-ski or parasailing above the beach. Dating back to around 3400BC, Marmaris is steeped with history. Take time to explore the many ruins and sites, but do make sure Marmaris Castle is on your list. You could also take a short boat ride to Heaven Island or wander around Nimara Cave. Boasting some of the best nightlife in Turkey, Marmaris is great if you love hitting bars and clubs and staying out until the early hours. The aptly named Bar Street is the place to head for a vibrant night out, but you’d also enjoy a more subdued evening around Netsel Marina, with its eclectic restaurants and shisha bars.

Resort Summary

The unblemished stretches of sand which make up the coastline have been accredited with Blue Flag status, while the crowning jewel of Marmaris Castle sits above the shoreline in imposing splendour. In fact, it was from here that the famous admiral Horatio Nelson organised an assault on the French at the tail-end of the 18th century, meaning there is plenty for history buffs to explore as well.

Marmaris’ strategic location on the Turkish coast makes it the ideal hub for taking a cruise or catching a ferry to locations further afield. The picturesque marina – particularly dazzling at night-time – is near some of the clearest waters you’ll ever set eyes on, making for some spectacular scuba diving and snorkelling opportunities.
