Depending on sea and weather conditions, Meridian Travels & Yachting reserves the right to make necessary changes to the tour itinerary to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests. The Captain’s decision is final.

Cabins on a gulet are smaller than you’d expect in a hotel but larger than on a sailing yacht. They are built from wood so might be basic but they are clean and have a small wardrobe with limited storage for luggage. Every cabin has a private en-suite bathroom with toilet,  shower and hot water in the evenings. One bath towel and one hand towel are provided, please bring your own beach towel.

With plenty of sunbeds on the fore and aft decks choose how to relax; sunbathing, reading, chatting or perhaps you’ll even sleep here under the stars. Meals are usually taken on the aft deck where you have a different view for almost every meal.

There’s a well-stocked bar with reasonably priced soft and alcoholic drinks. Please do not bring your own drinks onboard.

Air-conditioning can be in use up to 8 hours daily, the use of A/C in harbours is strictly forbidden. 

Whether you want to stay in a hotel overlooking the marina in Bodrum, a restored farmhouse in a village or a five star hotel complete with rooftop pool overlooking Yalikavak bay we are happy to advise and book for you.
