We loved the relaxed, easy going atmosphere at Naya. The rooms were good, the breakfast delicious and the company excellent. Everything is allowed, nothing is a must. They are very easy going with kids also. We all felt right at home.

this is the place to stay. I, actually, left without staying there. I came to Naya for some nice relaxing yoga time in a beautiful place and got there exactly on the wedding DAY and then, obviously (from other reviews), night. I planned to stay in a bungalow for 50 Euro per night. I guess I am not familiar with... More

We arrived to Buyukada and found Naya very interesting, everyone know the place. apparently its the hotel hosting art lovers and full of antiques and beautiful sea view. Spend 3 nights and couldn't leave the place. After all we found ourself very relaxed and free in Naya atmosphere . totally feeling at home. highly recommend the place.

Quirky is a good word of warning: If you are ultra conventional, Naya may be too laid back for you. If you have a sense of adventure, like animals, enjoy world class conversation with a person of many talents (Ludwig), then Naya will soothe and delight you. Two nights were not enough. The islands are a sweet taste of time... More

Ludwig is simply amazing, a bit quirky though but I am in awe of him - his welcome, his generosity, his attention to detail were just outstanding. Naya - you remain etched in my memory of Turkey. Stayed there twice recently and I felt so much at home. Ludwig really went out of his way, as did those who were... More

We booked some time ago, it was meant to be a really special two days at the end of a Turkish holiday. All communications with Naya indicated that we were in for a special treat, with kind and friendly staff. We take no pleasure in writing this. Deeply unfortunately it was not communicated to us that on our first night,... More
