TUI BLUE Marmaris

The TUI BLUE Marmaris is an adults-only retreat with its own section of beach. The hotel itself is located eight kilometres outside of Marmaris, but the privacy of the location really attracts people looking to relax and unwind.

The main swimming pool provides incredible views of the surrounding sea and mountains here, while there’s a specifically-designated ‘relax pool’ with its own bar.

The range of sports and activities on offer means that you’ll never have to leave the hotel, either. Here, you’ll find everything from tennis and archery, to basketball. If none of those take your fancy, then there’s also canoeing and paddle boarding.

Overview of Marmaris

Turkey has a great deal to offer any traveller, including scorching sun, endless beaches and gorgeous ruins.

From the history-laden Dalyan to the ancient ruins of Bodrum, Turkey’s long and storied past is ready to be explored no matter where you decide to stay. For example, at the TUI BLUE Marmaris, you’ll be in the shadows of the famous Marmaris Castle.

Holidays to Turkey are great for any active explorer, because Turkey is home to 13 Unesco World Heritage Sites, as well as two of the seven Ancient Wonders of the World. When you add in the world-class beaches and awe-inspiring bazaars, you’ll never want to leave.

Things to do in Marmaris

Marmaris is situated eight kilometres away from the TUI BLUE Marmaris, but remains easily accessible via bus or water taxi. You can also take the water taxi to nearby Icmeler, if you fancy a change.

In Marmaris, you’ll discover a beach paradise, but that’s not all that’s on offer here. As well as a range of water-sport activities such as snorkelling, Marmaris is home to one of Turkey’s largest bazaars, and historical monuments that date as far back as 3,400 B.C. There’s also a world-famous nightlife scene, if you fancy staying after-hours.

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.
