This peaceful hotel pairs rustic good looks with views of the sea.
Location-wise, this place is as private as it gets. It’s set on a peninsula at the foot of a pine-cloaked hill. It means that much of the complex is encircled by the Mediterranean Sea.
The hotel is nestled in a forest of trees, which gives it a rustic feel. Rooms are scattered among the greenery in stone-built bungalow blocks. You’ll find hammocks tied between the pine trees, too. From May 2016, this hotel will become part of the Thomson Sensimar collection.

Stunning location and very romantic.
Recently stayed in the Marmaris imperial with my boyfriend at the end of June. We had done our research about this hotel but were still pleasantly surprised when we got there as the photos do not do I justice. The hotel is set in the middle of a national park, so there are mountains all around which provides stunning views and also makes the hotel very private and secure. The rooms are basic but clean and more than adequate. (The cleaning staff were also absolutely lovely and left flowers on the bed which was a lovely touch) There is a real calm feel to the place so no running down at 7am for a sunbed as there were always some available. The food was lovely and they had a wide variety with a different theme every night. One of the main positives for us is how non intrusive the staff are. They don't pester you to join in with anything but were always friendly. Our only complaint is that there is a Cattery on site and the cats often wonder around you when you're eating. As we both aren't fond of cats this really irritated us. Having said that, we learnt quickly that if you sat in a different area, then they did not come over. The water sports available were cheap and well worth doing. There was also a very cheap bus that stopped outside the hotel that made going shopping in Marmaris very easy. Overall it really is a fantastic hotel and we will definitely be returning. More

Magical, we're booking for next year!
You wouldn't even know the resort is there, it's beautifully hidden amongst the pine trees, which smell amazing! It's the most peaceful, relaxing holiday we have ever been on. The views are spectacular, the rooms are big and beautifully kept and the staff are incredible. They work around the clock, non stop to make sure you have the best holiday and they do not fail! Huge variety of food to enjoy and a brilliant food allergy system for guests. Serdar, the water sports man, was amazing! We spent the majority of our time with him and he is without a doubt one of the reasons we are coming back! You absolutely have to try the parasailing and champagne sunset cruise! big Mabel is brilliant fun too! You need to try the Marmaris imperial, once you have been you will not want to go anywhere else!More
Great stay, but not a 5* experience
We visited during the middle of June. The coach trip to the hotel from the airport was just short of two hours.No issues, however it would have been nice to have been given a bottle of water. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were checked in quickly but no welcome drink or cold flannel which would have been nice. Our room was lovely, very close to the relax pool.We were quite low down so didn't have much of a view but for us this wasn't a problem as we spent so little time in there. There was bottled water in the room, no soft drinks which would have been nice. There was no ironing board or iron, you had to use a communal one down the road by reception in a very hot room with no air con. We had to pay for a safe, about 1.5â¬ a day.This was key operated, not key coded so you had to carry the key with you all day. The room was kept very clean apart from Wednesday which is environment day. The hotel grounds were lovely and the views and surrounding area was fantastic. The beach was our favourite spot. The sea is shallow enough to swim in and quite calm and clear, but does get very deep not far from the shore. We never had any problems getting a sunbed on the beach, but if you wanted one at the front about 5 feet from the sea, you did have to reserve these quite early. The beach was lovely and very relaxing with no loud music. The relax pool was just that, very quiet and relaxing. There is very little breeze so does get very hot at midday, with a bar and toilets close by. We didn't use the other pool, although it did look very nice. This had more of an 'atmosphere' with activities and music. To be fair, the music was not loud but more background. There is a small book library in the meeting room by the breeze bar and another in a basket near the relax pool. The food was excellent.Lot's of variety and it didn't become boring.There was so much to choose from and was cooked to a very high standard. The only gripe was with the drinks. It would have been much better if you were served tea and coffee in the morning and served drinks at lunchtime aswell, instead of a self service. This was only applicable in the evening. As soon as you were sat down you were asked for your drinks order, but you were never then asked if you wanted another. Also, the drink quality was poor. In the morning you could dispense some 'fresh' orange juice which stated that it was 100% pure orange juice. This was nothing but orange cordial and was either too strong or two weak. And the coca cola did not taste of real coke which came out of a coke branded machine, but some cheap 'rola' cola. The spirits also were not strong. The drinks in general were of a very poor quality. We did visit the turkish restaurant where the food was excellent. However the service was very poor. Worth a visit though for the food. There are a number of cats wandering around the hotel, but these never gave us any problems. We did go into Marmaris for an evening, catching the pink bus from outside the hotel and returning later. It is aroud 3.5 lira each i think. We didn't have any issues while we were there and really enjoyed getting some great bargains and having some banter with the shop owner's. There is night time entrtainment at the hotel which sounded good, but we choose to sit at a bar near the watersport's area. This was lovely, looking out over the bay and had a very refreshing breeze. We only sat at the breeze bar for one evening, but found it very difficult to move from your seat to get to the bar. I can't understand why more staff are not employed to provide a waiter service for guest's so that you can relax instead of having to fight your way to the bar and then stand around waiting to order your drink. I do this at home, we shouldn't be expected to do this at a 5* hotel. The majority of staff were friendly and would say hello, but some were quite rude and wouldn't give you the time of day. The fella at the beach bar, Selo was great and a couple of other's whose names i have forgotten, but some looked like they didn't want to be there. Overall, we had a relaxing stay, we really did unwind and it was a nice week away. The weather was fantastic, the scenery was beautiful and the hotel was in an ideal location. Nowhere can be perfect, however the simple and small points raised above could have made our stay even better. I would recommend this hotel and with a bit of tweaking would make this hotel jusify it's 5* rating. More

We previously stayed at this hotel in 2012 and were in awe of the fabulous location and stunning views. We were so impressed we had to come back and we were not disappointed. Everything was just how we remembered a few changes here and there but nothing major ..thankfully. A nice new touch was the deluxe cabana day where you can book a cabana on the pier with a choice of 2 packages. We chose the drinks one where a cool box is left on your cabana which includes wine ,beers ,soft drinks and water to keep you going all day without having to trek to the bar. The other package includes various snacks delivered to you during the day. The view is amazing and you feel truly special and pampered all day. There is a charge but well worth it. The food is amazing there and we never struggled to find lovely meals every night so much so we never did try the turkish and steak restaurants. The staff and management are all friendly and helpful. I must mention the lady on public relations who was very helpful when I was having problems with the wifi connections (which has vastly improved since our last visit) I also indulged in the turkish bath and massage at the spa highly recommended to kick start your holiday after your journey and put you in a relax mode. Another indulgence we had was a photoshoot with the resident photographer Omer we recieved a lovely album of photos to remember our time there. All in all a fabulous serene relaxing holiday all that we wanted and more ... would we go back a 3rd time? DEFINATELY!!! More

From the moment we turned up at this hotel me and my bride to be, knew we had made the right choice getting married at this hotel. The hotel manager Sharon and her assistant Jane made sure our every request was looked after. Nothing seemed to be a problem. The Thompsons rep's at the hotel Jess and Hayley had to take us in to Marmaris town a couple of times to sort the legalities out, this was a breeze with the local translator and driver. Both rep's went above and beyond making sure all we had to do was relax and look forward to the big day. Very professional and a real credit to the Thompson brand. The hotel its self is located a 20 minute drive from Marmaris , in a lovely mountain side setting right on top of the beach. The rooms are a little dated but cleaned to a high standard every day. The young man at the relax bar was fantastic, always smiling and happy to have a chat about how your day had been. The food in the buffet restaurant was lovely with a lot to choose from. One thing that struck me on a few occasions myself and my best man decided to eat together while the girls done their own thing. I was shocked that none of the staff seemed to want to come anywhere near us, to remove used plates or glasses. No drinks offered while the tables around us, the water and wine was flowing. Maybe this is a cultural thing I don't know? The next night we sat at the same table with the girls and service was back to its high standard. all around the resort you could find fridges stocked up with water, snack bars in between the restaurants been open. the shop on site is reasonably priced and has a wide variety. The big day itself was flawless apart from the registrar been 45 minutes late after changing the time the day before from 5pm to 4pm. The setting were the wedding took place was lovely with the sea and mountains In the background. all day and night we felt like VIPs even down to having the Brazilian restaurant all to our self's. Highly recommend staying here if you want to relax and unwind without any children. We look forward to returning in the near future. A big thank you to Sharon, Jane, Hayley, Jess, and the young man from the relax pool.More
