“Amazing stay at a friendly hotel in cesme with luxury rooms”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was delicious and the rooms felt like you are in the blue seas heaven. The afternoon tea and cookies added so much comfort to our stay.
We had coffee by the pool and the kids enjoyed the toys in the pool.
It is very close to the town center where all the fun cafes and restaurants are, also the stores.

Lovely garden, rooms. Very friendly stuff and great breakfast. Also it's located almost in the center.
I couldn't think of a better place to stay here in Alacati. I'll recommend here to everyone.
Come and just enjoy..

Thank you for the great review. We were all delighted to host you and get to know you. The great conversations at the bar by the pool or at our table by the kitchen with the rest of the crew, the dancing nights out were all greatly appreciated. Your great energy added to our happiness. Looking forward to your next visit in the fall,

Alura is absolutely gorgeous, taking only the best ingredients from boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts and striking a perfect balance. We had absolute privacy in our lovely, bright, airy and large bedroom (we had a regular upstairs 4-post bed room), but were warmly greeted every time we came home or downstairs, whether it was for breakfast, tea, a late night glass of wine, or just to enjoy the serenity of the pool, by the 24-hour staff.

Ipek, the owner and operator, was extremely helpful and willing to share all of her knowledge of the area, restaurants, and nearby destinations. Ipek also speaks perfect English.

Breakfast was by far the best and most beautifully presented I've ever experienced, with a standard spread of 3 homemade jams, cheeses, breads, olives, vegetables, and a daily special treat (one day it was an egg pizza, another some fresh cheese pastries), and eggs, special coffees, juice, and just about anything is all available on request. I just wish it were closer to New York so I could go more often.

Ipek - I hope to see you and everyone at Alura again soon!

Room Tip: If you are a couple, go for a 4-post bed room.

this is one of the most relaxing places in Alacati - wonderful colours with fresh flowers everywhere, perfect tastes by nice and little homemade bakery in the morning or afternoon, fresh smell in all rooms and around and relaxing silent environment - no noisy music like in most other places but silent classic music and the wind shaking the beautiful old trees around which are giving you shadow and cool places on hot days.
Rooms are super clean and nice. Beds/mattress of high quality and blankets also for colder nights freshly prepared in the cupboard.The staff is helpful and obliging- -nothing was missing. Even when a couple with a noisy child booked into the hotel the owner tried to suit everybody.
I stayed there together with my 5 years old daughter and there is no need to be loud!
We will defenetly come back to enjoy another relaxing days in that little oasis!
Thanks to Ipek and the other 3 lovely ladies!!! You are great!!

Last month we stayed at Alura Boutique Hotel for 9 nights and loved all of them. This small hotel gave us the chance to find the relaxing ambient we were looking for.
It is situated very central in Alacati, thus you are only 2 minutes away from the main street bus still fare away to enjoy the silence.
The Owner Ipek was very nice and caring all day long, supported us with tips for restaurants and other places to go to.
Breakfast is from 9-12 and brought always a smile to my face. We loved it.
If you are looking for some more privacy or quieter rooms the ones upstairs should be your choice.
If you are looking for a wonderful holiday in a beautiful town: Fly to Izmir, book a car, head to Alacati, book in at Alura Boutique Hotel and start enjoying the region.

Room Tip: Upstairs are the quieter and bigger ones. Groundfloor are the ones with a small terrace.

Alura is a great place to explore the small village of Alacati and the Çesme peninsula. Every detail is handled with care and to be enjoyed with your 5 senses: the natural smell from the flowers; the tasty flavors from the breakfast; the peaceful colors from rooms; the touch from the towels and sheets; and the good music always sounding in every corner (jazz, rumbas, bossa nova...). The swimming pool is big and good to swim. Personnel is really friendly and the owner, Ipek, is an amazing hoster: she speaks a very good English (an unusual characteristic in Turkey) and recommends excellent restaurants and beaches.

Just two small negative points: in the morning it is difficult to sleep with all the light in the room and sometimes you ear the noise outside.

Alura is as excellent option to rest and relax!

Super tidy and relaxing, very warm staff and the best breakfast ever! All details are carefully handled – it does make a difference. After many stays in different places, this is the best Boutique Hotel I've ever tried in Alaçati!

Room Tip: top floor rooms are more quiet.
