“Sublime stay”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We stayed in the Stone House and had a beautiful honeymoon thanks to all the staff and Belize. Everyone truly enjoys their work, making the atmosphere elegant and peaceful. The dinner was the best I have had in Turkey and I have lived here for several years. There were extra touches for our honeymoon and the surroundings were breathtaking. The caliber of the hotel was evident in that the Karia Bel was buzzing with quests obviously enjoying themselves. The surrounding hotels were void of people and activity.

Room Tip: Stone house is a short boat ride away. Offers quiet and solitude but only minutes from the hotel. A...

What a wonderful place. We stayed for 2 nights near the end of our 7 week visit to Turkey and it was the highlight of our last week. The owner, Belize, goes out of her way to make sure you are happy and comfortable. One day we asked if she served smoothies, and she was unfamiliar with what we asked for. So, she went online and prepared strawberry smoothies which, like all the food there, were also truly excellent. If you are in this part of the world and don't stay there you will truly be missing out!

Room Tip: Upper Floors for Best Views.

Karia Bel! THE highlight of our 2 week honeymoon. We can't stop gushing about it to anyone who will listen :) The location - remote, peaceful, amazing. The room - so tastefully done up, clean, large with an amazing sit out overlooking the sea. Food - literally one of the best meals we've had(and my husband is really prissy about his food!) The first night dinner was served right on the jetty, and we would have been mighty pleased with just that, but the superlative 6 course dinner just blew our minds. Breakfast was also hearty and fresh. Belize, who owns the place, is a warm friendly person who you cannot but take an instant liking to. Her staff are also delightful and amazing at their jobs. I could really go on and on, but long story short 5 stars on everything. And kudos to Belize for finding that amazing 'just right' level to everything that Karia Bel offers

This was a perfect respite from the many splendors of Turkey. The people who own and run this small resort are wonderful. The food was probably the best we had in Turkey and that's saying a lot since we had no bad or even mediocre meals in two weeks. Dinner is served along the waterfront piers in time for the sunset. In May, the seawater was pleasantly cool and swimmable and one morning we kayaked across the bay to the ruins of a watchtower. Another day we hiked about 1-2 miles into town and then the resort picked us up in a boat to bring us back. At night this peculiar bird called a clockbird begins to chirp at steady three second intervals. AMAZING!!

Room Tip: Any room with a view (most have them)

We love to holiday and travel extensively but never seem to get around to posting feedback on Trip Advisor. However….having now visited Kia Bel for the third time, it is perhaps time to share this hidden gem! (Even though it is tempting to keep it just to ourselves and off the radar!)
So…what makes this hotel special?

Location - situated on the peninsular of the bay you reach the hotel via a short boat journey; the aspect is fabulous and the views breath taking. The nearby village of Bozburun offers a selection of cafes/restaurants around the small harbour where you can while away a few hours simply watching the yacht’s come and go.

Hotel -the rooms are all individual with a very refreshing mix of style and comfort. The owner, Belize, is passionate about her hotel (which was her parent’s home) and as an experienced hotelier, her attention to detail is incredible. The staff provide an excellent service; not ‘in your face’ but discreet, consistent and genuine.

The food is fantastic! The evening meal is served by the water’s edge with the lights of Simi glistening out to sea; it is a truly delightful experience.

It is very difficult to be concise regarding Kia Bel as there is so much to be positive about. Don’t expect 5*luxury as in Fairmount or Regis type hotels –Kia Bel is luxurious but in its own special way..
A true Turkish delight!

Our stay at Karia Bel' was the highlight of our two week trip to Turkey. We were lucky to be able to come in mid April, before high season starts. I highly recommend a visit at this time. The weather is perfect - sunny, refreshing, but not hot. You may not be able to swim (we didn't) but can walk/hike/visit town in this beautiful area without getting scorched. And Beliz and her staff are unhurried since the hotel is not yet fully booked. Can't say enough about Beliz...she is warm, fun, and totally focused on providing all your needs for a nice stay.

Our room (Simi) was spacious and had a superb deck and view. The meals served overlooking the bay were among the best we had in Turkey, which is saying something in this country of great cooking.

We took some advice from Beliz for places to visit during and after our stay (Dalyan, Korakoy, and Kas), and they were all great ideas.
