The view is enchanting as is the rest of the Boutique Hotel ENA in Bodrum.
We are tired, when we are entering the hotel. It was a longer drive from Çesme to Bodrum than we anticipated.
But right after entering the Boutique Hotel ENA in Bodrum, there is calmness, the whole hotel is white with affectionate decor and a clean, airy atmosphere.
A little misunderstanding is quickly resolved by the Hotel Manager and we even get a complimentary dinner on the jewel of this Boutique Hotel and that is the restaurant with its terrace.
The idea is to quickly get dressed and continue to explore the Nightlife of Bodrum. So far the theory.
But the first thing we have to do, is to try the inviting Roof Top Pool. We stay long, taking in this soothing place. To be slow seems to be natural here. Also the complimentary wine, we found in our room upon arrival, needs to be tasted, so we just savour the moment a little bit longer, no matter what is still on our list.
Afterwards we get dressed for our night out and heading to the restaurant of the hotel.
While we are sitting on top of this picturesque place, the sea and fortress in front of us, a cold glass of sparkling wine in our hands, we forget the time for a second time today.
The service is impeccable, the food delicious and the view to emphasize it a last time, like in a glossy magazine.
We stay nearly two hours, savouring the moment, our tongues loose by now after the delicious Turkish Merlot (Sarafin). Here on top of Bodrum we feel ourselves like on top of the world.
For that moment we are just happy. And this is exactly, what we are here for.
After a magic night out with all clubs and bars in walking distance, the highlight is still to come.
The Breakfast. Fresh fruits, fresh breads, freshly pressed orange juice.
Fresh and local is the motto to start the day and as you might have guessed that extraordinary beautiful view again.
After a long breakfast, we use the pool and Balinese Bed for a last time.
And then it is time to go, too early. We will be back soon.
Thank you for a relaxing and calming stay in the middle of Bodrum.
