We stayed here for 2 nights in early May and were delighted to have found this outstanding boutique hotel.
The owners are delightful and it's clear that their vision has resulted in a unique place to stay in Kas. Everything is spotlessly clean, our room on the 4th floor offered stunning views and was incredibly quiet. The highest quality items have been used throughout. Our bed was huge and supremely comfortable. Amazing artwork is seen everywhere and we've never experienced anywhere of this standard over many trips to Turkey.
The atmosphere is calm and serene and each of our conversations with the owners left us with top tips for the best places to eat in Kas (each place was exceptional), great recommendations (including stopping in Gocek for something to eat before our flight home) and brilliant advice on all manner of subjects, which left us with a lasting impression. All these things make a massive difference.
Breakfast on the terrace with amazing view of the sea and Meis island made for an intoxicating start to the day and we could hardly drag ourselves away from the hotel.
We last visited Kas in 2003 and have previously stayed on the peninsula, however, we liked the thought of being able to walk into the town for dinner. The Gardenia is very well placed and central. It really is the best of both worlds to be somewhere so incredibly quiet and peaceful, yet only a short stroll away from the centre of Kas.
Please don't be put off by negative reviews about the lack of lifts. Our 20Kg bags were effortlessly transported to and from our room by the staff and the views from the 4th floor by far made up for a bit of a climb.
We'd most definitely highly recommend this hotel and our big regret is not being able to capture the vision and wisdom of the owners and the experience of staying here sufficiently in words. We loved it here and the kindness of the owners and the uniqueness of the Gardenia Boutique Hotel make us want to return and we hope to be back. Many thanks for amagical stay.
