Blue Flag beaches, ancient ruins and lots of tasty meze.
On a luxury holiday to Turkey you can relax like Ottoman royalty in one of the country’s best hotels. The 4,000 years of history and sandy coastline are fit for kings and queens, too.
A luxury holiday to Turkey means you get to enjoy the country from the comfort of one of its best hotels. It’s the ideal base to enjoy Turkey’s legendary steam baths, spice-filled bazaars and east-meets-west cuisine. Here’s an idea of what’s on offer...
You’ll get a good view of Turkey’s coastline on a traditional gulet. These wooden boats are great for nipping in and out of little coves, so it’s easy to find your own secluded beach. En route, you can head up to the deck for a spot of sunbathing.
A stew with a twist
While a warming stew sounds more like food you’d want to tuck in to on a cold winter’s day, Karides Guves, a traditional Turkish dish, is just right for eating in the sun. It’s made from prawns, chillies, red peppers, garlic and tomatoes.
Pro golf courses
One of the most popular courses here is the 72-par Nick Faldo-designed golf course in the heart of Belek. Once you’ve mastered that, there are lots more to try, such as the Gloria Championship course, a challenge for even the most seasoned golfer.
A fusion of old and new
If you appreciate history but love modern restaurants and trendy bars, Kusadasi is the place to be. Along with the sights of traditional Turkey – sugar-cube houses and narrow lanes – you get stylish cafés, restaurants and bars just down the road. And the Grand Bazaar gives you a taste for how the Turkish like to shop.
The famous Blue Lagoon
Even on windy days, the sparkling turquoise sea in this beautiful cove in Dalaman is still, so it’s good for watersports and little children alike. It’s a good idea to pack a picnic – to protect the lagoon’s outstanding natural beauty, no shops or restaurants are allowed here.
