“Turkish Delight”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We have spent four nights at the Tranquilla River Lodge, at the end of March 2013. At first, we were quite astonished because of the wooden lodge architecture that didn't seem to be very turkish and also found that the rooms were not big. But that first impression was quickly forgotten when we settled at the cosy fireplace of the restaurant and took our first meal on the beautiful terrace on the river. The Lodge is furnished with excellent taste and very clean, the personnel is very friendly and always tries to make you happy, as is the host, Bahar, and her family, who even took us to a picknick trip next to a waterfall on the river. The food is excellent as well. On the whole, we were very sad when we had to leave this beautiful, cosy place where we experienced adventure and rest. Don't forget to discover Kimily Beach if you go there - the view is breathtaking.

We have spent couple of weekends there and I promise you can not find any place as unique as this. The rooms are so clean and feeling the voice of the wood structures is great. You will wake up early morning by feeling clean air and hearing the singing birds. The view is fantastic and you can spend hours without doing anything. The building next to river has a fire house and they burn it continuously.. The staff is great, so friendly and helpful. The price includes dinner and I would say you can not even find that good food in the high quality restaurants. You will feel like you own that place. You can also have a nice walk to the beach or take one of the bikes of the hotel. The breakfast is like a 5 star hotel breakfast with everything. You can also take river tours or attend special evenings either in this hotel or nearby. If you visit this hotel once, you will always want to stay there.. As we do..

The hotel is located just near the river and they max 15 bugalow houses. Quite and nicely decorated. Dinner is good. But if you want to get some extra such as beverage (Raki) think about twice since it is too expensive. On the market, the price of 20 cl Raki is 17,50 TL but they charged 55 TL whic is not normal. But the rest is OK

Thank you very much for your nice review. But I am really sorry about what you said about the price you have paid for the extras. This is of course not our price for 20cl Raki. There must have been a mistake. I will check with my staff first thing in the morning and immediately refund. Could you contact me from our mail address on our web site. Bahar

Tranquilla River Lodge is an incredible place made with real wood and decorated with a great ahmosphere. Before I have discovered tranquilla I have been to three different hotels in Agva but once discovered Tranguilla that was it.

I try to go there every winter for a weekend, and has always been sad to leave the place on sunday. The food is amazing, staff is very professional and so friendly and should not forget the amazing fire place and the real natural stones that goes up to the ceiling above it. The beatiful garden etc..

I would strongly,without any hesitation, recommend Tranquilla to everyone who wishes to have a break in Istanbul.

Really nice and friendly staff and owners. We spent 3 beautiful and relaxing days in Agva. Food was amazing, the rooms are small but very clean and there is enough place to hang around in the lodge and garden house. Hospitality exceeded our expectations, it's really a charming hotel.
Thank you Tranquilla for those nice days!

The Tranquilla River Lodge is a beautiful hotel with wooden buildings, a cozy garden with hammocks, a fireplace which is lit at night and provided with big pillows to sit on, and a terrace right at the river where it's possible to eat dinner and breakfast.

The hotel was very nice, and the food was amazing. As we were there, though, the first two days of our stay there weren't anyone in the staff who spoke English, which ended up in us not knowing (and missing out on) the included dinner at the hotel - which btw. was very nice food one could pick out from a menu card with several options. To compensate for the misunderstanding, the hotel manager did provide us with an extra free lunch and a delicious treat of white wine, cheese, nuts, and fruit on our second evening there as we were sitting by the bonfire - great!

The room was clean, but very small (especially the bathroom, where my 1.93m boyfriend couldn't stand upright), and the toilet did have an unpleasant smell of riverwater. Besides that and the lack of English speaking hosts the hotel was pretty perfect!

We stayed there for one night with our son 1,5 year old. Staff is smiling. It has beautiful garden near the river, wonderfful and delicious dinner, good breakfast but small rooms.
I recommend. I wish i did not pay 5 TL for a coke at dinner.
