Not everyone staying at the hotel may be aware but the hotel does a fantastic fish special. We have never seen anything like it. But white grouper slow steamed with vegetables so you have soup starter from juices and then fish and vegetables.... delicious.

One word describes this place FANTASTIC. my wife and I stayed this boutique hotel for honeymoon a few days so everything was great. Very closed to Kalkan City and Kas City. All workers were very friendly. Thank you.

The hotel owner and staff run a magnificent hotel. The accommodation is extremely well set out in a hillside complex, comfortable, clean and delightfully quiet and private. The staff are universally polite, and helpful and the hotel boat is ready to take you to the village of Kalkan - don't try walking, it's not worth it!! Don't believe the "only... More

A fantastic place to stay - you can just dream your days away in this wonderful location. Excellent food and especially the breakfast with masses of fresh produce. Try the Cliff House - it is just perfect. The town of Kalkan is just a short boat taxi away where there are some really good places to eat.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the apartments above the hotel villa mahal and used the facilities several times. The location is perfect and scenery breathtaking when using the infinity pool. We were there in low season so found it to be very peaceful. Food and cocktails were good and service average - probably better if a guest.

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
