This family-run guest house is a real jewel and is situated in a secluded location near to the Dalyan Delta in the Mediterranean region of South West Turkey. A frequent boat service takes guests across the river to the hotel thus preserving its tranquillity.
Boats are readily available on the gently flowing Dalyan River and provide an opportunity to head downstream to Iztuzu turtle beach through the labyrinth of channels alongside the reed beds of the Dalyan Delta or upstream to the renowned Thermal Baths and Lake Köycegiz - or just to wander through Dalyan enjoying the cafe culture and the views across the river.
This entire region is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a paradise for ramblers with endless treks winding along the river banks, through the reed beds and up into the surrounding pine covered slopes.
The Hotel provides a complementary minibus and riverboat service for guests wishing to visit Dalyan Village. The 10 minute trip is scheduled at frequent intervals throughout the day.
The ambiance of this hotel is well suited to the yoga classes.
Morning yoga takes place in the indoor air-conditioned yoga shala.
Afternoon yoga can also take place here, or outside in the upstairs area with its wonderful views, depending on the requirements of the group
There will be two yoga classes a day, the first before breafast and a later afternoon class prior to dinner.
Mid holiday there is one day with no yoga when you can go further afield on an excursion, take the famous 12 Islands Boat Trip or just relax by the pool.
Accommodation is provided in comfortable en-suite rooms linked by the central tower. Rooms are large and have a small lounge area - see picture. The rooms overlook the lush landscaped gardens and swimming pool, with uninterrupted views of the surrounding unspoilt countryside.
