Review of Lemon Lounge

Lemon Lounge
Ranked #2 of 8 Nightlife in Dalyan
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The Lemon Lounge is our second addition to the Olive Lounge family, already famous for being the one and only real lounge boat in Dalyan. Together with her sister Olive, Lemon is designed and build to offer her guests the most comfortable and relaxing day out on the water possible. Lemon also has all the mod cons you already know from Olive, such as a toilet (even more fancy than before!) And a fresh water shower. Let us treat you to some authentic Turkish cuisine, lounge music, mouth watering drinks and of course great service, and enjoy a boat trip you'll never forget! Our top deck has plenty of sunbathing space for those who wish to top up their tan, and our lower deck is completely shaded for those who choose to stay cool. Free WiFi available on board during our tours!

Having been on the Olive Lounge last year with Alper & Anouk we had no hesitation in booking a trip with them again this year. Originally this should have been on the Olive but as this boat is currently undergoing minor repairs we were lucky enough to go on the even more luxurious Lemon Lounge. We were originally due to go on the Tuesday of our week long holiday but Alper arrived at our hotel reception at 8am to explain that the weather forecast was not very good for that day and would we consider a postponement to the Thursday. We really appreciated that he had come to the hotel when he could have just phoned and we agreed to the postponement and considering the storms on the Tuesday afternoon was 100% the correct decision. The day starts at 10am and we arrived at its mooring outside the Tezcan hotel just after 9:30 having caught the hotel's courtesy dolmus to find our captain for the day Anil still eating his breakfast, but it was no problem to let us onboard and provide complimentary coffee before departure, we were on the Ekincik bay tour and this involves a lovely trip down the river past the tombs to the sea and some lovely swim stops and a fantastic BBQ lunch with 3 different meats and about 10 different salad/vegetable/pasta dishes plus bread at an extended stop whilst the captain becomes the chef. Then later in the afternoon at the beach stop lovely melon and Baklava is served.The day cost us 60tl (less than £20) I believe this is slightly more in high season and drinks are reasonable. We be back on the Olive/Lemon or Ivy (new boat for 2014) next year. Thanks to Alper, Anouk and Anil for a fantastic day out.

We got married at a hotel in Dalyan and had our after party on the lovely Lemon Lounge. Our party consisted of 25 people the youngest being our 2 year old son and everyone had an amazing time.
We started with a trip to a bay near the beach where our guests went swimming and ended up on the lake under the stars.
The crew were great and didn't stop making us fabulous cocktails all day. The food is some of the best I have ever tasted.
Thank you to all the staff on The Lemon Lounge for helping make our wedding day so special

This is our 2nd time back in Dalyan and we went on Olive Lounge last year and Lemon Lounge this year. There was 14 of us in total with the youngest being 3yrs and the oldest being 87! All of our group loved this and agreed was the best day of the holiday! I am not a fish lover and was a bit worried that lunch would be just fish, but they did a BBQ on the end of the boat and we had chicken, meat balls and beautiful food that was so nice. The staff are great and the boat is clean and perfect with space downstairs and plenty of room up top to sunbathe!!

I could not fault this and if you walk down the river, you will clearly see Olive and Lemon Lounge stand out from all the others and if you book I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed! We tried to book again for our 2nd week as we enjoyed it so much, but it was booked out! I would suggest book before you come out to ensure you get one of these boats. We looked at other ones, but none lived up to the Lemon or Olive Lounge!

Loved this boat! Fantastic!

We'd already been on a very enjoyable day cruising the islands and bays earlier in our holiday, we then booked for the evening trip to the lake and a visit to the mud baths.
As before, the boat was not at all crowded, spotlessly clean and tidy, no loud music just a nice relaxing cruise to the lake.
Up the river through the reed beds to anchor for a swim, the lake was so warm, an excellent BBQ cooked by our skipper with salads, and bread.
The mud baths during the evening are the best time to visit, the hoards from the cruise ships had gone (we were the only ones there) floating in the mud was a strange experience. The deluge showers were efficient and it only cost 4TL each to get muddy!
Try the hot springs very pongy but have a go and tick the box.
Back on the boat we sailed to the middle of the lake and watched the moon rise and the stars come out, the milky way was very clear.
All in all a very enjoyable experience, spent in enjoyable company with a very friendly crew. Give it a go.

we recently hired both Lemon and Olive lounge for 2 private trips (13 of us). our party raged from 78 to age 5, all had a great time.both were fabulous days and well worth the money/ both boats are great and the food is out of this world, the beetroot was amazing!!! the crew on board are fantastic and made both days fantastic. the beauty of a private trip is that we could choose to stay any length of time at the stops or just cruise on down!!! we will be booking again for next year without a doubt. happy to answer any questions about it. i cannot recommend these boats highly enough.
thanks Anouk for making the booking easy too. Janx
