Antik Zeytin Hotel is a small luxury hotel in Bodrum. It has been known for centuries the important role that olive oil plays in our lives and historically it has been known as the 'elixir of life'. Antik Zeytin (the ancient olive) produces olive oil using the original extraction and production methods. Guests have the pleasure of making their own olive oil with granite stones and ancient olive presses. This chic retreat is at one with the rustic surroundings, ensuring that products are certified organic as much as possible and always on the look out for ecologically friendly solutions. Relax by the outdoor pool and enjoy fresh Mediterranean cuisine at this gorgeous hideaway.
Guests can bake their own bread in the Anatolian wood-fired oven in the mornings and pick local herbs from the neighbouring hills of Karadag. Where else can you dip your own home-made bread into your own olive oil? The next adventure is to enjoy a trip on Antik Zeytin's hand-made traditional sailing boat allowing you to experience sailing as it used to be. There are plans for a pottery and glass blowing workshop, using ancient methods of course. Bodrum has a history of over 5000 years and is home to the King Maussollos's tomb which is one of the Seven Wonders of the world. The biggest underwater Archaeological Museum is also worth a visit. Hand-made jewellry, sandals and olive oil are just some of the treasures you can find to buy in Bodrum. Antik Zeytin has a lovely outdoor pool surrounded by lush greenery and with stunning views of the sea.
Fresh Mediterranean food using ecological farming methods is served at Antik Zeytin Hotel with the emphasis on the homemade olive oil and nearly all of the ingredients are organic. Lunch is a relaxed affair and can be enjoyed anywhere you like.
