About an hours transport in an air conditioned people carrier brings you to the harbour. A quick ten minutes in a large boat and your on the island. There is a steep hill to the hotel but at least there is help at hand with the luggage. Some of the other people travelling with us had been before and it was being treated as a bit of a bolt hole for the peace. We had the room named Sahin which was on the top floor but only two flights of stairs. We chose this room for the view from the balcony and we were not disappointed. the whole week was the most relaxed, and maybe the best holiday I ever had. It just hit the mark! The mainland is about half an hour on the boat and the town of fethiye is pleasant and interesting. The meals at the hotel are a choice between a regional menu and ordinary food, both really nice. The highlight of my week was seeing a Manta Ray whilst snorkling only a few yards from the swimming platform.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ece Boutique Hotel on the island of Sovalye enjoys the most spectacular location on the water's edge, with 12 spacious rooms with wonderful sea views. The 11 spacious rooms (and one two-bedroom suite) are divided between two buildings and each open-plan room has a double or twin bed, a sitting area, fabulous picture windows to maximize the view, and a large balcony or terrace with, of course, more superb views out to sea. The Terrace Restaurant and pool area are the focal point of the hotel. Guests are requested to book at breakfast for the special dinner that is prepared each evening with the freshest of ingredients. Steps lead down from the restaurant past terraced gardens dotted with secret hideaways - to the Private Waterfront. Here guests can relax by the water's edge enjoying the wonderful views. An 'honesty bar' is located and a waiter service is provided on the terraces to ensure guests don't have to climb up the hill too often! The active are well catered for with the complimentary water sports and will enjoy the challenge of paddling around the island, or swimming - which is a little harder! At the tip of the island, a ten-minute walk from Ece, is the simple sand and shingle Sunset Beach - home to the Ada Beach Club & Restaurant. This magical setting provides the perfect vantage point from which to watch the sun dip below the horizon. Having tasted the unique atmosphere of Sovalye, we find that Guests rarely elect to venture from the island. However, on the occasions they do it is a simple hop across the water to the harbour town of Fethiye where its Turkish and cosmopolitan delights await your exploration as does the Lycian coastline beyond. A complimentary water-taxi operates three times throughout the day and evening from the hotel approximately 20-minutes to Fethiye and 7-minutes to Calis Beach. ... more less
