The article featured a short column with the headline reading "Riveria on the rise" which was written by freelance CNN producer Tamara Hardingham-Grill.
She went on to say that "The seaside city of Bodrum has reinvented itself several times over the past few decades—from a quiet fishing village to a popular resort town to a glamorous hot spot.” She then continued to say "Look no further than its superyacht marina, which reportedly draws billionaires like Bill Gates and Roman Abramovich.”
Hardingham-Grill also listed some of Bodrum's newest luxurious lodges and also gave special mention to the Bodrum Castle which has recently re-opened after being closed since 2017 for restoration.
