Kusadasi (Aegean Coast)

Kusadasi and Altinkum are good if you’re looking to experience busy city life, with bars, clubs and endless evening entertainment. Akbuk and Guzelcamli are ideal for outdoor adventurers, with fewer people and ample outdoor opportunities. And the historical Selcuk is great for a cultural stay, a stone’s throw from the historical sites of Ephesus and the Virgin Mary’s House.

 

Kusadasi: Ideal for city slickers

 

The Abem Hotel in central Kusadasi is great for the budget traveler. The informal atmosphere is still comfortable and charming and perfect for those travelling alone being close to all amenities of the town. Conveniently located near beaches and accessible to modes of transport it’s ideal for exploring the region, and after a busy day, the rooftop terrace is great to watch the sunset.

 

The Asena Hotel, nestled on the famed Ladies Beach is a stone’s throw from the cooling turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. As well as the luxuries of a beachside hotel, there is a swimming pool hidden on the terraced roof, allowing you to enjoy excellent panoramas of the cityscape whilst relaxing and soaking up some rays.

 

The luxury Pine Bay Holiday Resort has its own 2km private beach, neatly framed by rows of majestic pine trees (hence the name). For a luxurious holiday break with exceptional service, the resort ensures you’re treated like kings. And with on-site Turkish baths, a beauty salon, an aqua park and a plethora of sporting activities like tennis, canoeing, jet skiing and banana boat rides, you’re in for an action packed stay.

 

Akbuk: Ideal for outdoors enthusiasts

 

Olive Village Villa overlooks the sparkling brilliance of the sea and is beautifully surrounded by olive groves. The comfortable and stylish villas provide the ideal base from which to explore the area and being more independent than a hotel, they’re ideal if you’re planning excursions at all hours of the day. Located minutes from boat trips, Turkish baths and nature treks, you won’t find a buzzing club scene but you will find a friendly and relaxing atmosphere, ideal for a calm, restful break.

 

The Apollonium Spa Resort is right by the sea yet quite remote - ideal for a peaceful stay and close to beautiful scenic walks. The resort has huge white sunbeds, thatched parasols and a number of pools to cool off in as well as an on-site spa with Turkish baths and outdoor massages so you can relax to the sound of the waves.

 

For luxury villas and penthouses, Mandalya Gardens Apartments is top notch. The contemporary, modern interior is enhanced by the stunning sea views, which you can admire from the spacious private terraces. The apartments are self-catered but if you don’t feel like cooking, there are a number of traditional Turkish restaurants a short stroll away.

 

Didim & Altinkum: Ideal of all-inclusive stays

 

Altinkum has developed over the years into a haven for those looking for a hotel to lay their head and sandy beach to flop on. With a host of tourist facilities from restaurants, waterpark, watersports, bars and beachfront buzz the accommodation is designed accordingly. Choose from self-catered options to all-inclusive resorts.

 

Didum is a more traditional place to base yourself but there are still a number of hotels to choose from, ranging from 2 to 5 star luxury. Club Tarhan Holiday Village is one such luxurious resort that is family friendly and also comes with its own private beach, while still being only 4km away from Didum and the ancient temples of Apollo.

 

Selcuk: Ideal for culture vultures

 

Dreams Guesthouse is budget accommodation with a home from home atmosphere. You’ll find yourself cosying up in the lounge to watch a film in the evenings or cooking in the communal kitchen. The family run accommodation offers friendly service and the ideal location for the sites of the area at an affordable price. Start you day with a Turkish breakfast in the garden and end it with a game of pool on the roof terrace where you can admire the lights of the city.

 

The Artemis Hotel has a more inland location, 5km from the Aegean Sea. The twenty rooms were all recently renovated and are ideal for all seasons. During the summer you can sit out in their courtyard under the orange tree and relax to the sounds of the waterfall and the scent of fresh flowers. And during the winter, snuggle up in the pillow lounge and chat or enjoy traditional music.
