Our recent 9 night stay at Asena was amazing. Volkan Sebnam and their staff are unique. Stay at Asena and you will be treated to a memorable holiday experience. I like the way it is so well run yet there is an air of spontaneity too, for example we were invited to join another group's fish banqet, we were asked along with Volkan and Sebnam to visit the family home of one of the members of staff, this along with a fantastic boat trip and mountain trip to a secluded bay, made us feel we were on a 5 star plus holiday. Visiting a Turkish family home and experiencing their generous hospitality was priceless (thank you Muravet).
Time spent at the bar is a great opportunity to meet others who drop in for a drink and a chat purely because the ambience is pleasing and relaxing, just visit and ENJOY!


Excellent quality towels and bedding, spotlessly clean inside and out, food fabulous.

Dear Catherine and Malcolm,

Both you have a very special place in our hearts. Since the day we have met you early summer and than having you as our guests in September has proven that you are more than just great friends but also truly part of our family. We will never forget all the help, brother-ship and sister-ship you have shown to us. You will always have a special place in our hearts and we have the best memories with you.

We are excited for your extended Turkey tour planned for next year and even more excited that we will meet with the rest of your family next spring. Already getting excited and counting the days until May.

Thank you so much for your great comments for us but really its us who should thank you for being there for us whenever we needed your friendship.

We love you and miss you so much. please take care of yourselves and give our best to your family.

Love always,
Volkan & Sebnem

just returned from Dalyan a week ago after a seven day stay and can't wait to go back. From the moment me and the wife arrived we were spoilt rotten. The owners ( husband and wife ) Volkan and Sebnam make you feel at home immediately. The focal point is the bar built around a tree - this was a fantastic place to socialise and get to know the other guests. Many drinks were downed at the bar and I must say very generous helpings dished out too! Sebnam is an amazing cook and we were treated to two banquets that were absolutely sensational - the food is to die for. We were also given plenty of advice on excursions and even managed to go to a couple with the owners of Asena!!! Whatever we asked for the upmost was done to fulfil our request and not once were we failed. The hotel is also very clean and close to the centre of Dalyan - only 5 minutes away by walking. We can't wait to go back next year - thank you Asena for a fantastic and most enjoyable stay.

Our dear lovely friend Suchit, thank you so much for your lovely comment. Meeting you, your wife and all your friends were great experience for us. We are grateful that we get to meet with you and spend some time together. All the excursions we went together, every night we spend together at Enjoy Bar and your friendship is unforgettable for us. We really do hope you will be here next September with your friends again.

Just returned from staying here for two weeks and it was a quality holiday, Volkan and Seb run the place and there both awesome. The food they do is amazing, Seb is a quality chef. As for the bar, the atmosphere is amazing and they make you feel really at home, guaranteed you will have a good time if you stay here. Rooms and pool are simple but clean and comfortable, all you need really. Recommend highly

Not to be missed. This is my first time in Turkey and this sweet little villa made me feel like I'd come home. The staff is an extended family that are so cute and friendly, Mama doesn't speak much English but she and Pasha make an amazing breakfast each morning that is included w/your stay. The pool is perfect and unchlorinated. Each room has a pretty balcony and the beds are fresh and firm. It's 10 mins walk from everything you could want to do in Dalyan. Loved it and will be coming back next year. I feel homesick already and only left 2 days ago. Many thanks and luv to the entire Hacigumus clan. (The family that owns and runs it)

Just returned from Dalyan after spending 2 weeks at the Asena, we had 8 rooms for family & friends. Cannot fault anything, Volkan & Seb are perfect hosts. Sednam did a fish BBQ for us all which was amazing. The rooms are clean, the pool is spotless (no chlorine used)
The bar around the tree is a fabulous attraction, now known amongst my friends as "The Hub" a great meeting place, which can go on till the early hours!
I have already booked 11 rooms for next September, even though i willl be back a few times before then.
A big thank to Volkan & Sebnam, and the rest of the crew for for making our stay a fantastic memory. See you all soon.

The tan may be fading fast but our memories of the Asena will last forever!
This is a lovely little hotel but the reason the Asena really stands out from the competition is the devotion and dedication of the wonderful staff there. Volkan & Sebnem and their team really do make guests feel like they're all part of one big family.
From the moment we stepped out of the car we were made to feel like VIPs, with a warm welcome on arrival followed by a much needed drink in the relaxing Enjoy Bar. And this special treatment continued throughout our two week holiday. It's rare to experience such excellent customer service, where you genuinely feel that nothing you could ask for would be too much trouble. And the best bit? All the staff always have a smile on their faces and seem genuinely happy to help.
Add to that the lovely pool, Sebnem's amazing cooking and her fabulous cocktails, Volkan's day trips, and Casper the beautiful hotel dog, and I can't think of a better place to stay!
We have always vowed never to return to any holiday destinations, but for this one we will definitely be making an exception!

Our Dear Friends Vicky and Stephen;

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. You are absolutely right, we did feel like you were apart of our family from the moment you walked in to Asena. It was actually you who treated us VIP by being great friends and with all your understanding on busy days when we were running around. We couldn't thank you enough for all your friendship. And now even though you would plan to go explore some other part of the world next summer the possibility to see you again makes us very happy. We really hope that we get to see you next summer.

We will be in touch and even if not this summer we will always look forward to seeing you here at Asena.

With our most sincere best wishes,
Sebnem & Volkan
