We stayed at Hotel Cachet in Kas peninsula for a week in mid April 2011.
The peninsula is a long narrow strip of land connected to Kas which has been developed in recent years predominantly with private villas with a few hotels. It is well served with a local bus which follows a circular route to Kas (about 10 minutes drive away from this hotel). However,we had a hire car to enable us to explore the many places of interest in the locality. The approach to the hotel is down a very steep hill and is very hairy when first encountered but we rapidly got used to it.
The hotel is very modern with a large glass atrium as you enter giving it a light and airy feel. It is small, with accommodation for about 20 to 30 people and is run by the owner which gives it the feel of an intimate boutique guest house.
The communal areas internally are light and welcoming although the nature of our stay meant that we only used the dining room.
Externally there are a variety of terraced areas, walled and paved, leading down to the beautiful sea directly below the hotel. The pool is a good size and is kept very clean as are all the terraces and garden areas.
We had a generously proportioned room, well furnished with a truly stunning view across the sea from the balcony. Very comfortable and quiet.
One of the absolute delights is dining in the evening. There is an extensive menu with Turkish and international options. The chef is a star, particularly with Turkish food and cooks almost everything in real time (ie no pre-prepared dishes). It is also reasonably priced compared with restaurants in town. However, like everywhere in Turkey, wine is expensive. Breakfast is self service and adequate.
Service at the hotel is friendly and helpful with the owner and the chef fulfilling multiple roles from receptionist to pool cleaning. At the end of a week you get to know everyone pretty well
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unique little hotel and would happily return.
ps. at the time of wrting the website does not do justice to the hotel,particularly the external shots.
