“Simply perfect”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Simply perfect with very excellent details of architecture and interior design. Excellent personalized service with very warm hospitality but providing privacy. Surprising small gifts starting from welcome to farewell makes you smile and feel special. Food is remarkable yet maybe some local touch from Alacati region could have been added but service quality is great. From Spa services to housekeeping, front office to f&b facilities simply perfect. Didn't have chance to try the outside catering or the private sail boat, hopefully in the future. Prices are high but definitely value for what is paid.

This is what I would call a true getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Beatiful setting in the heart of Alacati. Boutique hotel made of cleverly restoring and joining 5 old houses. Ideal for a romantic time away. Service and food excellent. Staff very attentive with every little detail in the room thought of. An absolute try is the eggs benedict at breakfast. Try and sit out on the balcony overlooking the long rectangular pool if the weather is sunny. If cold they have outside heaters to warm you up. Should be visited off season as the setting gets very noisy in the summer. Dont miss out on visiting the local market just around the corner on Saturdays full of very fresh local produce and goods. You can also relax in one of the few open small coffee shops on the main street. All in all a very tranquil few days.

I don' t know where to start. Should I start with the most comfortable bed with the perfect beddings, or luxurious room ammenities such as a high end music system including an ipod with beautiful playlist in it; the vide variety of teas, and coffees; huge and cleanest bathroom ever; relaxing garden; choice of two world class restaurants (MITU & FOGO) run by two succesfull Italian Chefs; the amazing staff who makes you feel and live "anything & everything is possible in ALAVYA".
All in all, this is a beautifull property which is luckyly operated by the most enthusiastic staff, which results as a perfect holiday experience.
Special thanks to Zeynep, İlknur, Carlo, Alessio and the whole Alavya Family for this wonderful experience.

We spent two nights with my husband at this amazing property. We travel quite a bit and we have never been at such a boutique hotel with excellent service and wonderful atmosphere. The rooms are marvelous and extremely clean and have great amenities. Every turn down service had a surprise for us! The hotel is full of personalized details. The location is great-walking distance to the happening places. The food is outstanding. The staff is ready at your service to exceed your expectations any time! Definitely going back! Highly recommended!

I spent a weekend at Alavya and it was fantastic. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. The hotel and the rooms are very well designed, interiors and objects and there are nice little surprises like kaleidoscopes, flipflops, even an iPod with good tunes in. Bed was extremely comfortable, you really don't want to leave your room. Food is delicious at two restaurants Fogo and Mitu, also drinks especially Sangria. People lives in Alacati say that place is even better in autumn and winter so I'm planning to spend another Alavya weekend in winter.
