Following a year long renovation, D Maris Bay has re-opened its doors and is back with a vengeance.

Harriet, Kate L and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

Located on the hillside in the Datça Peninsula, the D Maris is surrounded by pineforests, islands and volcanic mountains, and many of the rooms have views of the panorama, including of course the Aegean Sea. There are 194 rooms and suites, and most of the deluxe suites have a bathtub on the balcony, ideal for soaking up the spectacular views.

Also in the enclave of the Datça Peninsula are five beaches (one of which has been decreed a 'Silence Beach' - a slightly more glamorous take on the quiet carriage on trains), and the hotel itself has a gym, a spa with a hammam, indoor and outdoor swimming pools,and tennis courts where lessons can be arranged. There is a dive centre across the bay, as well as a sailing school, and guests can explore the nearby Greek islands on a private yacht charter.

There are four restaurants at DMaris Bay serving gourmet Ottoman and Aegean cuisine, and seven bars from which to choose from.

Why we love it

The Datca Peninsula is known for having the third highest level of oxygen in the world, and is therefore said to have natural healing properties that date back to 12th Century. True or not, it makes us feel better already, psychologically at least.
