It's only a few kilometres beyond the all-day breakfasts, beer-guts and tattoes of Hisaronu and Olu Deniz, but a world of difference in every possible way. It's spectacularly located between the sea and the mountains in a totally rural setting, with only birdsong (ok, one of the birds is an insomniac cockerel) and the occasional goat bleat or bell to break the silence. The rooms are vast by any standard and provide everything you can expect of a classy hotel; the outside areas are similarly well-equipped and great to look at, sit in or swim in. The dinners are amazing - in two weeks I rarely saw the same dish twice, which, given there are 4 or 5 meze starters, a soup, a hot starter, a main course and dessert, is quite exceptional. And all this from a very small team of staff for whom nothing is too much trouble and who are ever cheerful and smiling. Having all that to look forward to after longish hikes along the Lycian Way really made it an unforgettable holiday.
- Also Known As:
- Fethiye Mandarin
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- An unspoilt setting, luxurious surroundings and a warm, personal welcome... Opened in the summer of 2007, Mandarin is a delightful boutique hotel situated in an unspoilt natural setting close to south-west Turkey's magnificent Turquoise Coast. Perfect for nature lovers who also value a touch of luxury and a high level of personal service, Mandarin has been designed as a stylish and supremely comfortable hideaway, which nevertheless boasts a pleasantly informal atmosphere without any hint of stuffiness or pretension. Mandarin comprises just eight guestrooms and thus offers a very intimate ambience, making it the perfect venue for a small group to rent for a special celebration, club event or even a business meeting. However, the hotel is equally suited to romantic couples and guests wishing to stay in unspoilt surroundings, relax in unperturbed peace and perhaps indulge in a few nature-based activities. Please note that, to maintain its air of tranquillity, Mandarin operates a no-children policy (with the exception of group bookings renting the hotel in its entirety). ...introducing one of Turkey's most exclusive retreats ... more less
