Kempinski Resort Bodrum, TurkeyTravel to Turkey is booming, and those sun-seekers lucky enough to hit up the Aegean coast near Bodrum this summer may want to make a beeline for the Kempinski Hotel Barbaros Bay if tranquil solitude is an important part of the vacation equation. The resort—which occupies a dreamy setting overlooking the vast turquoise sea—has opened an “adults-only silent beach” for the ultimate in relaxation.

“Music, children, phone calls and motorboats are banned,” explains The Guardian, “and loungers have a call button so guests don't even have to shout for another cocktail.” Better yet, therapists from the spa are available for al fresco treatments.
