On a gorgeous stretch of sand in Antalya, where dramatic snowcapped mountains tumble into the sea, this eclectic design hotel is perfect for spending sun-drenched days on a poolside daybed, getting sporty on the beach or relaxing in the Balinese-inspired spa. While much of the design — the interiors, linens, staff uniforms and terrycloth-covered daybeds, among other things — is white as snow, there are a few notable exceptions. Red, glowing lamps and orange lava lamps warm up the guestrooms, and elsewhere you’ll find an all-red restaurant and an all-black nightclub.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms are large, white, cubic sanctuaries of cool and calm. All feature mood lighting and balconies with daybeds; many have views of the Mediterranean Sea or Taurus Mountains. The low beds feature handy pullout tables, and the minibars are stocked with upward of 100 items. Quirky details include lava lamps and fish tanks (goldfish are available at check-in if you wish to adopt a couple as roommates).
Guests come here to lounge, propping themselves against beanbag pillows with a cocktail or a laptop; if you squint, this shiny beachside scene, where chill-out music plays day, night and underwater, could be in Miami’s South Beach. The outdoor pool, bar and beach area are perfect for people watching, and there’s also a kids club, an indoor pool and a high-tech fitness center that offers crunch-style classes. Hit the spa for a traditional Turkish hammam or opt for a massage, a candlelit bath in a room strewn with rose petals, or a mega-indulgent caviar facial. The hotel has an eclectic restaurant selection, too, with five different eateries that serve everything from Turkish meze to sushi.
In the Area
Stroll along the landscaped promenade that runs along Konyaalti Beach; it’s lined with small, casual restaurants that cook up tasty meals and turn into discos at night. There are also plenty of oceanfront water sports centers offering jet skis, catamarans and the like for rent. The narrow, winding streets of Kaleici, Antalya’s old town, are lined with Ottoman-era wooden houses, harborside cafés and a bazaar featuring jewelry, antique handmade carpets, kelims and colorful tiles and pottery. Culture vultures head to Termessos, an ancient city on top of a mountain near waterfalls, or Tahtali, where a cable car offers a bird’s-eye view of Antalya. After working up an appetite, try Seraser for gourmet food in the romantic setting of an Ottoman castle. Kids are catered to also; Su guests enjoy free entry to the nearby family-friendly Antalya Aquapark.
How to Get There
Hotel is not 5stars at all. Foods awful, rooms are filled with scuff marks, AC is not cool enough, patches of paint in the walls, toilets are stained, not cleaned properly. Furnitures are worn and old, beds are hard. Only friendly staff are found in the SPA they’re just amazing down there, very helpful, none judgemental. Only 5 star about that place are the views. I will correct myself I had one good salmon meal in the property and the lahmacun at the pool. Everything else was not great. The food at the moonlight restaurant is very bland. I recommend eating out and look on trip advisor for restaurants not the recommendation by hotel staff.
Let me start with the positives. Fantastic waitstaff- like really helpful both in the restaurant and poolside. Super location. Great facilities like the pool, gym and especially the Spa.
negatives. The hotel is Tired, really tired. Not dirty per se, but the rooms need a full refit. And definitely not 5 star quality.
Now the really bad. There were at least two parties during our stay where the music shook our rooms. Like the base went through the bed. These parties went past midnight, two nights in a row. The hotel needs to decide if guests are important or parties are important. We complained and the hotel did follow up asking what they could do. Moving rooms was not an option as the entire hotel was thumping.
There are music or bands every night as well. The music gets through to the rooms, but not so bad.
For those looking for relaxation or have children, this is not your hotel despite whatever the Hotel blurb says.
Would I stay again? It’s a no from me.
The next visit convinced us that the hotel has a high standard, people are very friendly, care for a high level, the manager the right person in the right place devotes all his work to his work. Thank you, we will be back soon .
