Situated in the Mediterranean region of South West Turkey, near the Dalyan Delta, this family-run guesthouse is a real jewel. The hotel is in a beautiful secluded location, reachable only by boat, with a frequent boat service taking guests across the river to the hotel, thus preserving its tranquillity.
This entire region is recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty, and is a paradise for ramblers with endless treks winding along the river banks, through the reed beds and up into the surrounding pine covered slopes.
Boats are readily available to take you down the gentle Dalyan River; head downstream to Iztuzu Turtle Beach through the Dalyan Delta, a labyrinth of reed-lined channels/streams, or upstream to the renowned thermal baths and Lake Köycegiz, or simply enjoy wandering through Dalyan, enjoying the cafe culture and views across the river.
The hotel provides a complimentary minibus and riverboat service for guests wishing to visit Dalyan Village, a 10 minute trip scheduled at frequent intervals throughout the day.
Spacious ensuite rooms with private lounge areas (see photo), overlooking the hotel’s lush landscaped gardens, swimming pool and uninterrupted views of the unspoilt surrounding countryside.
The pool and surrounding gardens envelop the guests in a state of peace and tranquility. Relax on sun-loungers and enjoy the sunshine.
Buffet breakfast and dinner are served in the Garden Restaurant.
A varied and plentiful menu of local dishes and traditional Turkish cuisine. A light a-la-carte lunchtime menu is also available (not included in retreat package).
Ingredients are sourced fresh daily, and locally wherever possible. The dinner menu is supplemented by the daily harvest of home-grown vegetables from the hotel’s vegetable garden.
