We spent a week at this hotel in September having looked at it whilst in Turkey last year. This hotel has huge potential but is in real need of a General Manager. We had difficulty in making ourselves understood several times at reception and once on the phone to get another bathrobe which had disappeared during cleaning,the general handyman was sent up to us to look at the lighting that we had just telephoned about....?!
Our room ,private deck with great view and good sized plunge pool were all lovely although I do agree with a previous reviewer that the bathrooms were lacking in ventilation and also there were no shelves or storage for any of your own toiletries etc. which could be easily remedied and a
welcome addition. Wardrobe space was good.
Breakfast was good, lovely fresh fruit, cereals and eggs to order. In our opinion Bilal the excellent barman and food and beverages manager held the whole place together, he was always attentive,on the ball and very aware of what was going on...his lovely wife who waited on tables also deserves a mention, she was excellent too.
Dinner was a bit hit and miss and maybe needs a little attention,( I think we have been spoiled by the good food at the Likya Residence in Kalkan where we went to after the Peninsula, see separate review )
Kas is a lovely town, far more cosmopolitan than English Kalkan,we had 2 meals there, one at Zaica and one at a fish restaurant recommended by Bilal..both were excellent and would probably go to eat in Kas more often next time. You do have to rely on the shuttle service which is very good as it's too far to walk to the town or take taxis.
The sea is wonderful, we loved the pontoon in the water and sun beds were comfortable, and Hallelujah ....no sun bed bagging at dawn !! The steps down and up will give you a bit of exercise for the day !
All in all we had an enjoyable week and have booked a week for next year before we go to Kalkan.
I think because each room has its own private space there is much less socialising with other guests but perfect for a lovely chill out week but for us a week was long enough .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This is one of the most luxurious new hotels we have found on the Lycian coast. As you read this, the first guests are already splashing in their private plunge pools, or basking on their secluded terraces. Literally from the ground up, The Peninsula Gardens has been designed to make the most of the craggy coastal cliffs on which it stands. There are two buildings, but the slope allows the second building to command just as splendid a view as the first. ... more less
