Hilton’s latest luxury brand, LXR, had added a new property – Susona Bodrum.
This is a rebranding of the old Nikki Beach Bodrum hotel.
LXR is intended for luxury hotels which want to have a high degree of operational independence but which still want to be part of a global sales and marketing operation. This is yet another conversion to join this new brand, following the existing London (The Biltmore Mayfair) and Dubai properties.
Susona is a boutique resort of just 76 rooms, suites and villas. It is located five miles from Bodrum and enjoys its own private beach, spa and rooftop infinity pool.
All rooms are described as having ‘panoramic sea views’ which, looking at the image above, seems very possible as it is built on a pensinula. That said, some room descriptions say ‘partial sea view’ when you come to book.
Rooms in August are around €400-€500 per night, which makes a Hilton Honors redemption excellent value at 95,000 points per night. You also receive ‘5 for 4’ on Hilton Honors redemptions if you have Hilton elite status at Silver or above.
