Nudist tourists will be able to work on their full-body tan on the sun-kissed Turkish coast from next week, when the mainly Muslim country opens its first naturist hotel, a report said Sunday.
Open exclusively to foreigners, the beachfront nudist-only hotel opens on May 1 near the major southwestern resort of Marmaris, a small revolution in Turkey’s conservative society, Milliyet newspaper reported.
“Nudism is allowed inside the hotel premises, but not on the nearby public beaches,” Ahmet Cosar, bookings manager at the Adaburnu-Golmar hotel, told the newspaper.
For guests who are determined to shun bathing suits, the hotel will provide a shuttle bus to and from a private naturist beach.
