Once loved this hotel, and surely it still is gorgeous. Stayed for a night, (incognito) last year, this, just to see. Kalkan was once a small village. It grew, with little care to tie it into surroundings as lets say, Kas. But Turkey is so full of little villages by the sea, you can find that feeling again. It was... More

Beautiful view if you have rooms down below. We were first given the room next to the breakfast area. Not anything like the other rooms. Rooms are a nice view but not special. The pool room was very special with an infinity pool. The hotel restaurant was the most romantique dinner we've e er had. Dining on the ocean with... More

This was our first trip with Exclusive Escapes, and everything went smoothly. It is expensive, but for that you get 24 hour on call rep who can't do enough for you. The Villa was in two parts- three bedroom with two of them outside, down a flight of stairs directly opening onto the swimming pool. This would be ideal for... More

This small, but perfectly restrained hotel with its all white rooms, welcoming staff, Beach Club bar for day relaxing and lunch and wonderfully evening dining by the water, looking over the most beautiful of bays is certainly an earthly paradise. The menus are a combination of European and Mediteranean cuisine, perfectly cooked. Although I would like to see the inclusion... More

We had a great couple of weeks' holiday at Hotel Villa Mahal. From the minute we arrived and soaked up the spectacular view across the bay, we felt relaxed and in good hands. This is a very special hotel in an extraordinary location. Rooms are a good size and well equipped, on various levels on the hillside. Yes, it's a... More

What a treat, the better half had a massage in the beach club looking out at yet another perfect Turkish sunset and joined me in the terrace restaurant for the BBQ. Super slick and friendly service in a setting that pulls the romance out of a grumpy old goat like myself. It's the sort of place that makes you feel... More

Without question an unique seaside gem. A boutique cliffhanger in the best sense of the word. Small, romantic and beautiful. Very friendly staff and best one-on-one service, excellent food. The perfect place to relax. A piece of paradise in a paradise, a true Turkish dream at emerald waters of Kalkan Bay. Chapeau to Ipek and her team.
