Karia Bel' Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Bozburun
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Hidden away on a not so well known tourist peninsular, a short boat ride and Karia Bel appears beautifully located on the hillside with jetties sitting over the clearest water - this was high on the 'wow' scale! And the 'wows' were to continue.
From the moment we were collected by boat, to our arrival and welcome, to the divinely decorated rooms (all very individual), to the food - this place was our dream come true!
The room rate is dinner, bed and breakfast and, to be honest, we were not holding our breath expecting a great culinary experience since it's all inclusive. However we were very pleasantly surprised, the food and service were fantastic!
Beliz runs an amazing hotel and is supported by efficient and friendly staff.
A day was organized on a local boat for exploring, swimming and a lunch in a nearby village, a great day and if staying for a while we would recommend doing this, it would be a shame to not investigate this stunning location some more !
We were so sad to leave after 2 days and wished we'd booked for longer, fate took a hand when a ferry was cancelled to our next destination and we got to return for another 2 days. We were so happy!
Full marks Beliz and your team, Karia Bel was a real highlight for us during our 5 weeks in beautiful Turkey.
We will definitely be recommending a visit to our kiwi friends when they visit Turkey.

Karia Bel' is perfect for a peaceful getaway. A small boutique hotel with lovely rooms (think wood and crisp, white sheets), nothing is too much trouble for the very friendly staff (hello Yas!). The journey from Dalaman is 2hrs so worth arranging a flight that arr/dep at a decent time. The hotel will arrange transfers and their drivers are excellent. The boat trip to/from the local village is great fun. Good points - v. friendly, aesthetic rooms and sunbathing area, great food, quiet, right on the sea. Not so good points (there aren't bad points) - 2hr transfer but beautiful scenery, may get bit bored after a week as nothing much to do other than relax and explore surrounding islands (the local village is quite small). Food though wonderful (def worth going half board) - strangely similar each day. The local cockerel and other birds make themselves known but you get used to them. Possible improvement - a hotel massage therapist!!? We hope to return when the high season's over.

Room Tip: The rooms are built on a hillside with lots of steps up to them. If you have dodgy knees - ask for o...

I don't usually review a hotel, but our stay was outstanding! I don't have a single bad thing to say (and I'm usually quite picky).
The settings is amazing, the rooms are specious, clean and well decorated, the food is really good and the staff is attentive, carrying and efficient! I would recommand this hotel in heartbeat, it's even worth the detour if you weren't planning on visiting that region.

My wife and I stayed at Karia Bel for 5 nights in September 2013 following our first visit the previous year. We had such a wonderful time in 2012 that we decided to return and spend my wife’s special birthday at the resort together with close friends from Australia and the UK. And what another magical experience it was.

Karia Bel is a little off the beaten track but the journey is well worth it as you leave the madness of Marmaris and enter the idyllic, unspoilt environment of Bozburun. What strikes you immediately is the stunning bay and the beautiful waters of the Aegean with its peaceful, mirror reflections.

A short boat ride brings you to Karia Bel, with its terraced rooms discretely nestled into the hillside. Out front are two large timber pontoons, floating in crystal clear waters, and these provide the resort’s focal point for your days of leisure- sunbaking, swimming and dining. The bar and restaurant are close by.

On arrival you are warmly greeted by the charming Beliz, the owner of Karia Bel, and immediately made to feel welcome. Beliz is very personable and professional and it is through her efforts that her family’s former summer house has been transformed into this special destination which we can all now enjoy. You will be introduced to her delightful staff, including Ender, Seda, and Ceylan, who will look after you with attentive, personalised service. After a day or two, you feel like part of the family. .

Karia Bel has been carefully planned to create a serene, elegant ambience. Each guestroom is individually decorated and furnished with impeccable taste. Most rooms have a terrace from which you can sit and take in the beautiful views of the sea and the Greek island of Symi in the distance. We again had the super deluxe room- Appolonia- which we just love.

The food at Karia Bel is excellent with a focus on fresh, local produce- the seafood is superb and perfectly cooked. They also make their own bread each morning in an outside wood-fired oven. The setting of the evening meal on the pontoons is sublime with individual tables overlooking the water making for a beautiful, peaceful and romantic dining experience. Breakfasts are also fantastic with a huge array of fruit, eggs, cheeses, olives and turkish fare. Karia Bel’s half board is a great concept and very good value.

The nearby village of Bozburun is on the waterfront and is very picturesque with its collection of moored yachts, particularly the traditional gulets. It can be easily reached by Karia Bel’s boat but we took the opportunity to do the pleasant 20 minute walk along the goat track (yes, we saw goats) to the village each morning. We found some delightful little shops selling local jewellery, etc and an excellent tailor (Mustafa at Zigzag Boutique) selling hand-made cotton shirts and pants.

Bozburun is a superb location and with Beliz and her wonderful staff, you can’t help but experience a memorable, relaxing holiday. Read Beliz' story about Karia Bel on the website and you will come to appreciate why it is such a unique boutique hotel

If you are intending to visit south west Turkey, make sure you stay at Karia Bel.

Fantastic hotel with a fantastic location, great food, quirky and stylish accommodation with staff that provide low key attentive, friendly service – it really provides the most complete package.

We tend not to review hotels unless they seriously fail us or seriously exceed our expectations – we visit the Karia Bel a great deal and it always surpasses our expectation.

We have stayed in Karia Bel' in October, as two couples. It was in such a great location, which can be reached by boat only. The view from our balcony was great and very much relaxing.

As for the meal options, the hotel is half board, with excellent buffet breakfast and fix menu for dinner. The food is really fantastic, suitable for seafood lovers. The beverages are extra but the prices are not high.

The hotel is good for relaxation, it is a small area and you don't have much options. But the deck is great and you can spend the whole day there. You can reach the town only by boat or walking through a small path in 20 mins.

The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The owner, Beliz Hanım is also very nice and attentive.

Each room is decorated in a different style. Many of them has a balcony. The decoration was nice and our room was spacious (room #9). The rooms are very clean and they are cleaned everyday. (no "don't disturb" sign btw)

The hotel has steep stairs and may not be very suitable for children or people with disability.

Will definitely come back. :)

Room Tip: Room -8 and room-2 has nice terraces.

We stayed there for 4 nights. Everyday was a treat. Turquoise water, birds singing, breath-taking view, pampering service was available all day long. It is an ideal choice for those who wants get out of the crowd.
