Penthouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Situated on the multiple award-winning upscale beach resort of Horizon Sky near Bodrum, this spacious air-conditioned penthouse has been furnished to a very high contemporary standard and can accommodate four people in great comfort.
The property boasts an enormous terrace with panoramic views of the sea and surrounding areas, which guests can enjoy al fresco from the luxury of their own Jacuzzi. There is also a swimming pool to the side of the apartment, so no need to go to the main pools if you fancy a nice relaxing day in!
Inside, there's a roomy open-plan living-dining-kitchen area with patio doors leading directly onto the terrace. The modern kitchen is equipped to a high specification, and the dining area seats up to six people. The luxurious living area has a ipod docking station, 40-inch flat-screen TV and a DVD player, (which features a USB port, allowing guests to bring and watch their own viewing material).
The apartment's airy bedrooms also features patio doors, which lead onto the terrace, and a 20-inch flat-screen TV. It has a built-in mirrored wardrobe complete with drawers. There's also a large contemporary en-suite bathroom, with a bath and power-shower, and double sinks to the main bedroom and a ensuite shower and toilet to the guest bedroom.
Guests benefit from the use of a safe and free WiFi at the resort (by the main pool).
The resort itself boasts several swimming pools, beach bar and shop (for basics only), and friendly and helpful on-site staff. A private boat transfer service operates from Horizon Sky's private beach and jetty, to and from the nearby atmospheric fishing town of Güllük, in which there are several good dining establishments and bars, (which we would be happy to recommend), along with a decent-sized supermarket, a pharmacy, bakeries, coffee shops, and several banks. Taxis and mini-buses may be taken to the buzzing town of Bodrum from here. Güllük is also only 15 minutes away by cab from Bodrum Airport, (a one way journey costs approximately 40 YTL).
Please note that while the penthouse forms part of a phase in the development of Horizon Sky that has already been completed, development work is still underway in parts of the resort. Development work is suspended this year between 15th April to 15th October.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Turquoise Coast and Lycia region of Turkey is home to some of its most well known resorts.
Olu Deniz is famed for its blue lagoon, and the whole of the coastline is very beautiful.
Marmaris is a more European style resort, but still boasts a lovely old town quarter. Quieter resorts such as Foca, Cesme and Kusadasi are all old port villages which have reinvented themselves.
The Horizon Sky Resort is located in the historically rich region of Bodrum, in the bay of Gulluk. This region is well known as 'Iasos' and its history dates back to 3000BC.
Although, the quintessential charm of small harbour and fishing villages such as Gulluk, has not been lost and consumed by over development.
The ancient city of Bodrum is said to be founded by Dorian settlers in Greece from around 1000BC. Since then the area has had a tempestuous period of change and different rulers.
The city came under Ottoman rule in 1522 AD Suleyman the Magnificent captured Rhodes and forced the knights to move to Malta. in 1522 AD, Ottoman rule took over. This was known as 'Petrion' after the Castle of St. Peter, and this became in Turkish 'Bodrum', the name by which the town is known today.
With its colourful history and monuments attesting to such, Bodrum exerts a lasting fascination on its multitude of visitors year on year, irrespective of age or nationality. There is so much that this region offers and is more than suitable for an interesting getaway, whether you are after culturally rich tours, busy nights out in Bodrum, a romantic evening in a cosy tavern over looking the bays from the small villages, or just a relaxing break away by the pool whilst soaking up the sunny weather. Bodrum and the surrounding areas offer it all.
