Macakizi Hotel, Turkey

Maca Kizi means Queen of Spades in Turkish, and this Bodrum hotel shimmers like a waterside palace, making guests feel like 21st-century royalty. All three parts of the resort — a hotel, a world-class restaurant and a hip-happening beach club — recline on the side of a hill covered with hot-pink bougainvillea and white-hot sunlight. The beautiful people come here, but so can everyone else.

The quiet rooms and suites are at the top of the hill, and a small maze of flower-decked paths takes you to the open-air restaurant (where the complimentary breakfast includes omelets made to order) and the beach with its large bar and various sunbathing and swimming piers. En route you’ll pass the lovely, underused pool, the well-attended Turkish bath and a small gym.
