We spent a week here in May 2011 and had the most wonderful time. 12 lovely rooms in a wonderful location on a secluded island reached by boat. We stayed in Marti (seagull). All the staff are warm and friendly - from Handan the owner to the chefs whose food was fantastic. Breakfast was fresh, tasty and plentiful. Rooms and garden / sunbathing areas kept meticulously clean. Lovely pool with fantastic views of the sunset. You can walk the entire island in about 45 mins (meeting some great characters along the way!) or do as a small group of us did one early morning, and canoe around :) We looked at this hotel several years ago and thought it may be a bit remote for us but we're so glad we took the plunge. We did venture over to Fethiye one afternoon for a wander around the port and backstreets using the free boat taxi and the gulet trip was the usual great "Exclusive" experience. Thanks as always to Jaz for all her help. We've already booked ourselves back in for next year. Apologies to Osman in advance for any late nights!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ece Boutique Hotel on the island of Sovalye enjoys the most spectacular location on the water's edge, with 12 spacious rooms with wonderful sea views. The 11 spacious rooms (and one two-bedroom suite) are divided between two buildings and each open-plan room has a double or twin bed, a sitting area, fabulous picture windows to maximize the view, and a large balcony or terrace with, of course, more superb views out to sea. The Terrace Restaurant and pool area are the focal point of the hotel. Guests are requested to book at breakfast for the special dinner that is prepared each evening with the freshest of ingredients. Steps lead down from the restaurant past terraced gardens dotted with secret hideaways - to the Private Waterfront. Here guests can relax by the water's edge enjoying the wonderful views. An 'honesty bar' is located and a waiter service is provided on the terraces to ensure guests don't have to climb up the hill too often! The active are well catered for with the complimentary water sports and will enjoy the challenge of paddling around the island, or swimming - which is a little harder! At the tip of the island, a ten-minute walk from Ece, is the simple sand and shingle Sunset Beach - home to the Ada Beach Club & Restaurant. This magical setting provides the perfect vantage point from which to watch the sun dip below the horizon. Having tasted the unique atmosphere of Sovalye, we find that Guests rarely elect to venture from the island. However, on the occasions they do it is a simple hop across the water to the harbour town of Fethiye where its Turkish and cosmopolitan delights await your exploration as does the Lycian coastline beyond. A complimentary water-taxi operates three times throughout the day and evening from the hotel approximately 20-minutes to Fethiye and 7-minutes to Calis Beach. ... more less
