Stayed four nights here in early September and really enjoyed the experience. The hotel is within walking distance of Orta town and is housed in a distinctive Moorish-style building with pleasant grounds. There is plenty of car parking. We did not try the Michelin starred restaurant in the hotel but those that did reported an extremely good experience. The hotel... More

I'm still not sure! Our room (Amina) was really gorgeous. If only it had a shower. The bed was dreamy. If only they'd bothered with turn-down service. The food was delicious. If only the service wasn't so crazy. The grounds are gorgeous. If only they didn't have the wedding marquee permanently marring the view. They offer a pool and beach... More

One word could be enough to describe everything: "excellence". Location is absolutely marvelous, welcoming warm and food is divine. Every single taste is something never experienced before...

This is a wonderful getaway for a very expensive day and night in a beautiful location. It has a 2 Michelin-starred restaurant, which is the main reason for being there, but more on that later.
