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
