Known as part of the Turkish Riviera of the Mediterranean, Bodrum has seen one of its busiest seasons in 2022. With its clear turquoise coastline and paradisiacal coves, the seafront city sets itself apart from the regular European hotspots with an added touch of sophistication and style, and has fast become one of the most exclusive destinations amongst the world’s elite globetrotters.

Cem Mirap, founder of Lucca and member of the TURYID Board of Directors, has been instrumental in masterminding and curating the most glamorous destinations in both Istanbul and Bodrum. Transforming the best of art, culture and delicacies Turkey has to offer with a strong dose of upscale, international influence, Mirap’s establishments are known for attracting some of the most high profile crowd in art, design and fashion.

Having founded Lucca, an iconic destination located in the chic area of Bebek, Istanbul since 2004, Mirap took the bold step in expanding the venues under the Lucca umbrella in Bodrum, despite the uncertainties amid the pandemic. After launching Lucca by the Sea in summer 2021, the ultra chic Lucca Beach opened its doors in 2022. Situated at the Paradise Bay within the Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum, the private beach club offers an experience like no other whilst combining the best of style, nature, music, and dining by the seashore for those long, lazy summer days.

Quickly discovered and loved by the trendsetters, the style at Lucca Beach emanates an air of poised relaxation. Think on-trend swimsuit with daring yet tasteful cutouts, lightweight and semi see-through kaftans in sorbet shades, statement-making accessories and headscarves, completed with this season’s hottest arm candy — be it a bold piece of jewelry or mini Kelly in the newest, impossible-to-get color.
