We stayed at the hotel for a week in late May this year, 2012, and discovered another world.
The hotel must have the best views in Turkey, and when the weather is calm the place is sublime. It isn't just the physical situation of the hotel, right on the tip of the Peninsula, just out of Kas, that makes this hotel remarkable. It is the tranquility and kindness of the charming Ikhlaque Shah, the owner/manager and his staff.
We arrived with illnesses after some gruelling traveling through Romania, Istanbul and down through Turkey so we needed a break, needed kindness and attention and we found it in this small hotel. We travel a lot and can distinguish between human consideration and professional hospitality. If you want the former go to the Hotel Cachet. Nothing was too much trouble. The chef, Fikri cooks wonderful food, and varied the menu to please everyone. As we are vegetarian, he went to extra trouble. Bulent the restaurant manager did everything he could to make us feel at home, as did the beautiful, largely invisible housekeeper who decorated the newly-made bed with a different flower design each day with flowers from the garden.
As for Kas itself, I presume the quietness of the town is due to the fact that it is nearly 3 hours from nearest airport and so is largely free from the package holiday crowds and seems to be off the main tour bus routes. If you are driving yourself, or happy to take the bus from Dalaman or Antalya, you will not regret staying in Kas for a few days (we stopped for a week) - it is a Mediterranean gem.
