Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Villa Mahal

Patara Evler Yani, Kalkan, Antalya, 07960, Turkey Fodor's Choice

Clinging to a cliff face with a wraparound view of Kalkan Bay, this immaculate establishment is one of Turkey's most spectacular hotels, with a gorgeous pool that juts out into the air (making swimming feel like flying), a beach club at the bottom of the cliff, and a hotel boat that will take you five minutes across the bay to Kalkan Harbor for an evening in town. If there is anywhere in the world to splurge on a great room, this is it. Try the Sunset Suite with its spacious layout and blue mosaic hot tub. Be ready, however, for the 181 steps from top to bottom—if you don't want to walk, the hotel has golf-cart service around the property and to its beach. And be aware that the long balcony in front of the picture windows of the standard double rooms also serves as a public walkway. Four three-bedroom villas above the beach club are also available for rent, and excursions can be arranged on the hotel's private yacht.

PROS

  • Peaceful beach club offering many water sports
  • Stylish, glamorously minimalist rooms and public areas
  • Stunning location

CONS

  • Isolated location
  • A long trek down to the beach
  • Expensive, though with facilities this luxurious, it's arguably value for money
