Hillside Beach Club
What We Love
- Jetsetter rate includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, beverages including wine and beer, plus fruit and a bottle of wine on arrival
- A 15-minute drive from Fethiye, an ancient city of Lycia that boasts incredible historic and cultural sights
- A big screen is placed in the water just off the beach for nighttime movie screenings
What To Know
- The quietest rooms are in the 400 blocks, near the Nature spa and Silent Beach
- Be sure to request a sea-view room with a balcony — it’s worth the extra money
- Typical of the area, the beaches are a mixture of pebbles and sand
- One tree is planted nearby on behalf of every guest
- Plenty of free activities (including a kids club), and art classes for an extra fee
- Eco friendly
- Free WiFi
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site
Chiseled into hills covered in pine trees on a private cove, the 30-acre Hillside Beach Club has one of the most picturesque settings on the Med. Pick among its three secluded beaches including the Silent Beach (where yoga sessions are held daily and, blissfully, no cell phones are allowed), and the adult-only Serenity Beach. The interiors err on the minimalist side, but here the focus is all on the beach, relaxation and the slew of entertainment options, from Broadway-style shows to painting classes.
Bed and Bath
The Tuscan-style units have terra-cotta roofs and are draped in bougainvillea. The rooms are designed to accommodate one to four people and are organized in separate blocks all across the resort. The unfussy interiors are painted white and hold kingsize beds and simple wood furnishings, such as built-in nightstands and desks with ottomans on wheels. The balconies (make sure you request a room that has one) are spacious and come with sensational sea views.
It’s easy to have an active vacation at the Hillside Beach Club, thanks to the extensive facilities: water sports (including scuba, kayaking and a waterskiing/wakeboarding school), tennis, a fitness center and fun classes such as Latin dance, Pilates, yoga and meditation. And there are parent-friendly services, including a (free) kids activity center and child-free beach zones with floating wooden pontoons. For relaxation, Hillside’s Balinese-style spa is exceptional, it’s located in a treehouse next to the Silent Beach.
In the Area
Seek out the ancient temple-like tombs carved into the sides of mountains by the Lycians. Reach the highest, the tomb of Amyntas, and you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view of Fethiye’s marina and bay. Or get out and explore secluded bays, inlets and islands in the hotel’s private boat. Follow the legions of international solo pilots who come to paraglide over Olüdeniz. About an hour and a half from away, this gorgeous beach town has consistently great conditions and is one of the most photographed spots in the country.
How to Get There
Our favorite resort since 2011. Rooms hidden among pine trees. Beautiful park with shady palm trees and flowers, three beaches with crystal clear waters, delicious food with great selection, water sports, day long activites, night long entertainment. and excellent service by friendly and attentive staff
Everything is perfect about this place - location, service, food, atmosphere. Hillside is truly a heaven on earth. The place of real joy and inspiration. Can not be compared to any other place in the region.
Fantastic place , so that’s why we came for a third stay.
Great customer service, fantastic for kids activities, amazing shows.
The best feature of all is the fantastic food choices - especially desserts!
After receiving lots of recommendations about Hillside, we finally made a 2 week booking.
On arriving at the resort you arrive at a guard house and barrier before descending the hill for 1km to reception - it’s hidden from the road so you sense real privacy.
We were taken to our room by motor cart. Block 6 at the far end of the resort above Pacha. What a view! Very spacious room - walk in closet, huge terrace and outside shower/toilet. Housekeeping were very efficient.
On full board basis, you receive drinks including wine and beer in the main restaurant with lunch and dinner - including full bottles of wine. Food was almost all buffet style - a little disappointing for a 5 star resort. Meals were always busy, thank goodness for the adults only terrace. Food was tasty but quite samey for a fortnight and not always hot. You could book dinners at 2 “a la carte” restaurants but they served mezze/sharing style with no menu and way too much food!!!
The beaches were clean. The silent and serenity beaches were great. Lunch at Serenity was amazing!
Took a boat trip from the hotel pier which was beautiful and well worth it
Entertainment staff worked hard - from glasses cleaning to activities and sone good shows.
Stunning location , great service but tailored to families with kids and a bit too manic at meals
This hotel is simply perfect for everything. We come almost every year and no change in service or quality. Entire team is perfect. Food is more than excellent. Sea, pool, entertainment team, everything were great. If you did not come yet you do not know what you miss.
