Hotel Villa Mahal

Luxury Hotel in Kalkan

One of Turkey's most stylish hotels lies atop a cliff on the eastern side of Kalkan Bay. The 13 rooms, individually designed in whiter-than-white minimalism with colourful Mediterranean splashes, have panoramic sea views. The infinity pool is spectacularly suspended on the edge of the void, while stone steps descend to seafront bathing platforms shaded by olive trees.

It's about 2km by road from Kalkan. There's a free water taxi into the centre; a normal taxi to/from Kalkan costs about ₺15. Minimum stay three nights.
