D Maris Bay

The D Maris Bay is a contemporary hotel set high on a cliff overlooking the beautifully serene Datca Peninsula in Southwest Turkey. The 196 spacious guestrooms include 36 suites on the upper floors and an exclusive villa, with beautiful mountain or sea views.

The hotel has a number of swimming pools, an indoor spa and a good range of restaurant options. The D Maris Bay hotel has five sandy beaches reached by funicular or water taxi. 

Why we like D Maris Bay

From almost every angle, there are magical views overlooking southern Turkey, lovely beaches and a fantastic choice of outdoor sports.


Alongside the comfortable accommodation, there is a selection of mouth-watering beachfront restaurants, an ice cream parlour, bakery and cafe. A popular spot is La Guerite, with its beach club vibe and lounge atmosphere. The beaches offer something to suit all tastes. Take a digital detox on Silence Beach, suspended on your day bed over the ocean. Take a massage in your private cabana on Maris Beach or explore the further three beaches by swimming the bay. Find your rhythm whilst staying at D Maris Bay.

  • Five private beaches, each with its own concept
  • An indoor pool, outdoor pool, and a vitality pool
  • Fully equipped gymnasium and Mytha Spa
  • Kids club and Water Sports School
  • Tennis school


If you fancy something more exhilarating than just relaxing on the beach, activities on offer at the water sports school include water skiing, wakeboarding, sailing and diving. Alternatively, hire a car and explore some of the unspoiled scenery along the Datca Peninsula. As well as the charming old town of Datca, there is the ancient site of Knidos, dramatically set right on the tip of the peninsula. Treat yourselves and hire one of the hotel's yachts to spend a lazy day exploring some of the coastlines hidden coves or the lively port town of Bodrum is also easily reached for a day trip.


Overlooking the turquoise waters of the Aegean and the Mediterranean, D Maris Bay nestles high on a hillside of the unspoiled Datca Peninsula, approximately one and a half hours from the towns of Dalaman and Bodrum.
