The Hotel Villa Mahal is a remarkable place. The hotel is cut into a steep slope running down to the sea, so every room and every part of the hotel (particularly the pool) has a stunning sea view. The rooms are towards the top of the hill, the swimming pool is halfway down, and at the bottom is a beach... More

HotelVillaMahal, Owner at Hotel Villa Mahal, responded to this review

Dear 411AJP, Thank you for taking the time to describe so perfectly the real concept of Villa Mahal and for your positive impressions. The reason why Villa Mahal has so many repeat guests is because our concept matches with their expectations. Indeed, tastes differ and it is not a "Dubai/Las Vegas glitz" setting but the truth is that the Mahal... More

Villa Mahal is a beautiful site, created with a lot of attention to detail. The property is on a steep hill; reception, most rooms and the breakfast area are at the top, the beach is reached after a five-minute walk down a path with many steps. A pool area is situated half-way between the rooms and the beach. Unfortunately, the... More

This was such a beautiful place to stay, we absolutely loved it and will definitely rebook! We read that it had been awarded Johansens most romantic place to stay and we certainly saw why. From breakfast on the roof terrace, to candlelit dinners by the ocean and everything in between, all was perfect! Ipek the hotel owner has amazing attention... More

Delightful property with superb staff. Breathtaking views from every aspect, breakfast terrace, rooms, pool and waterfront lounging area. Food excellent at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Forget going into the tourist trap of kalkan and chill out here instead.

We stayed at Villa Mahal for a week after reading a gorgeous article about the place. We booked for a week the sunset suite (third most expensive) which looked gorgeous on pictures with its private terrace overlooking the sea. The place is gorgeous but to explain the 3/5 let me give you the positive and negative. Positive: - gorgeous place,... More

We absolutely loved the Villa Mahal. The views and location are stunning, the sea is beautiful to swim in, and the beach club feels really exclusive. I had a massage above the sea which I would heartily recommend. Our days filled up so easily sunbathing on the loungers, swimming out to the platform, and drinking delicious cocktails. We took the...

Spectacular view, very well decorated different sizes of rooms, very romantic restaurant, delicious meals and above all very elegant service. If you need something, all you have to do is ask for. They will do anything for you if possible. You will pay little more then average but you will get much much more then average. Affordable luxury.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A sophisticated boutique hotel nestling on a hillside in Kalkan Bay. Here at the Villa Mahal, each step you take offers a picture perfect view of the Lycian Coast and divine Turkish Mediterranean. You arrive at the Mahal's reception from the dusty track outside, and crossing the threshold you quite simply enter another world. The picture post-card spot was hand-picked by the owner Ipek when she first moved to Kalkan over 25 years ago, having gathered all in one place the essential ingredients of an award-winning boutique hotel. Mahal's unique thirteen rooms retreat offers the ultimate soul quenching vacation. It will restore, refresh and invigorate you. Tastefully appointed rooms and suites are all with striking picturesque sea views. At Villa Mahal, you will have the ultimate freedom vacation. It is a kick-off-your shoes, shrug-off-your-blues way of life that makes the tomorrows prettier than the yesterdays. Come visit Villa Mahal, tucked away just on the edge of paradise. (*) Villa Mahal winner of the Conde'Nast Johansens award for "Most Romantic Hotel" in Europe in 2007. ... more   less
