Veltur Turiya Hotel and Spa
Ranked #1 of 16 Turgutreis B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 July 2012

My partner and I had a fantastic week at the Turiya Hotel and Spa in mid June.

The location is perfect within Turgutreis – a pleasant five minute walk along the promenade to the shops, bars and restaurants. The Turiya end of the promenade was just far away enough from the centre of the resort to be pretty quiet and peaceful most of the time. The hotel was very quiet whilst we were there, it clearly wasn’t at full capacity, but as there are only 22 rooms I can’t imagine that it ever feels very busy. There is a choice of the pool or jetty for sunbathing. We preferred the pool and most days had it virtually all to ourselves; the most people around the pool at one time during the week was about 6. Bliss! Drinks and food are served around the pool and on the jetty, and towels are provided. The pool was usually around 30 or 31 degrees - perfect for swimming (however the pool is quite deep right across with no shallow end to speak of).

The hotel itself is lovely; contemporary decoration and fixtures with really attractive modern bedrooms and bathrooms (window separating bathroom from bedroom, with blind for privacy). Bed was very comfortable with good quality linen. Everywhere was kept very clean; the pool, restaurant and outdoor areas were always spotless. All bedrooms have a stunning sea-view. It was definitely the nicest hotel we saw in the area.

We were on a bed and breakfast basis. The buffet breakfast was always beautifully presented with cereals, breads, cheeses, salad, fresh fruit and a couple of warm options (usually small sausages and scrambled eggs) and is served until 11am so no rush to get up early. We had an evening meal in the restaurant one evening on the patio overlooking the sea. The food was good (although we did have other meals just as good at various restaurants in town); the only complaint was that we were somewhat rushed through our courses and the starter was taken away before we’d finished! (I think this was through eagerness to provide good customer service, rather than ignorance of good customer service!). There’s a snack menu available during the day with various light meals.

The staff all strive to provide great customer service and are very friendly (especially Ali!). Not all staff speak a lot of English (which is fine, not a complaint) so you sometimes have to be creative in making yourself understood using hand gestures and mimes etc (i.e. we wanted to order a white wine spritzer from the bar which they didn’t know of but we got there in the end and by the end of the week we ordered it with no problem). Our flight home wasn't until evening so we asked to keep our room until 6pm, although check-out is lunchtime and this was no problem with no extra charge.

We arrived late on Saturday night and were given room 203 on the first floor by the lift which had a shower but no bath. Whilst all rooms have a great sea-view, this one was above the restaurant so had the flat-roof in front of it – whilst this didn’t obscure the view, we felt it wasn’t quite as pleasant as those on the pool side of the hotel so on our first morning I enquired at reception whether we could move to a room with a bath – I was shown room 207 on the first floor overlooking the pool which had a bath and we felt was slightly more spacious and a better view without the flat-roof, so were moved after breakfast with absolutely no fuss or hassle and were very happy with our room for the week.

It was my first time in Turkey, and first time in Turgutreis for both of us and we’re really glad we chose the resort. There are numerous restaurants to choose from and a few lively-ish bars but it didn’t feel too English orientated (although you can get a full English breakfast at several restaurants if that floats your boat) and suited us perfectly as we wanted somewhere with a good choice of places to eat, drink etc whilst avoiding loud tacky nightclubs etc. All of the restaurants we visited were great value for money with good food, especially ‘Lapikant’ where we had a table on the beach with exceptional food. The beaches are OK, not the best I’ve seen but not the worst either.

The only two downsides we found were that we encountered the ‘hard-sell’ of restaurants and shops quite a lot and it was sometimes hard to get away when someone stopped us to ‘chat’ (people were very friendly but it was usually heading towards trying to get you to eat, or buy something or take a boat-trip). I don’t suppose this is any different to a lot of other holiday resorts but did lead to us coining the phrase ‘There’s no such thing as a free Good Morning’! The other thing was that there are quite a lot of stray dogs around Turgetries – whilst they didn’t bother us at all, it’s a little upsetting if you’re an animal lover (although a local did tell me that they are looked after by the local council or equivalent for medical care etc).

The only tiny negatives we found at the Turiya were that when we used things in the room (shower gel, bathrobe, toilet rolls etc) these were not always replaced without asking, the glass between the bathroom and bedroom could do with a good clean, and one of our bathrobes was taken away mid-week and not replaced, and on one occasion we had a guy coming round the pool trying to sell us boat-trips but I’m sure if we’d mentioned it to the management they would have dealt with it. The negatives are very very minor and in in absolutely no way detracted from us having a brilliant stay. If we ever decide to return to Turgutreis I’m sure we would choose this hotel again. First class!

Room Tip: All good but the ones overlooking the restaurant have the flat-roof in front. The ones overlooking...

I stayed here for two nights only on business, most of my colleagues were staying at La Blanche next door so I spent time at both. The Turiya was an oasis of calm, wonderful views from every room, the bar, the pool, the deck all looked over the sea and out towards islands. The pool was perfect, 31 degrees, deep enough and long enough for a swim. The service was good, generally very helpful, free Wifi was useful for me and they had no problems with a late check out. Rooms are nice and modern with balcony and good facilities, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was a bit limited in choice and I didn't eat any other meal there so can't judge the food. Down the road is a great Turkish restaurant where you sit on cushions on an elevated deck with straw roof and look over the sea. A great business lunch with a difference! La Blanche seemed like a great resort but given the choice I would now pick Turiya as it's not so noisy and of course there are a lot less people - I'm sure the two don't really compete for the same customers but as I saw both it was an interesting comparison.

I stayed in this hotel for 9 nights at the beginning of June on a bed and breakfast basis. The hotel is excellent and how nice to find everything functioning perfectly in the room! I certainly found the bed comfortable. No complaints regarding the cleaning of the room. The Turkish breakfast seemed a shame to eat. Beautifully presented on a wooden platter. Of course the sea views are to die for.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view

Without doubt the best hotel we have ever stayed in to date - and we've travelled all over the world.

We love Turgutreis anyway..but the hotel is in a fabulous location - about 5 or 6 minutes walk to the centre of town - gorgeous hotel/facilities and wonderful friendly staff who were great fun. In fact they helped make our holiday more than that...it was a great holiday to remember. We laughed so much with all of the staff.

We stayed bed and breakfast but the food was outstanding and several times we ate there at lunch and had an evening meal too. Food to die for. I have never seen breakfast like it!

The hotel is obviously more expensive than others in the area - but then so it should be as it is really first class - it is worth every penny. If you want an upmarket, relaxing holiday...we can't recommend enough. In fact - for the first time ever we can honestly say there is nothing we could fault! We can't wait until next year because we will certainly be returning!

Oh...and one more thing. The beds and pillows - our one nightmare when going abroad...will be be able to sleep? No worries at Turiya... extraordinarily comfortable mattresses and pillows... we dropped into bed with a sigh each night!

Room Tip: doesn't matter what room you stay in...all of them have beautiful see views and are excellent.

My husband and I stayed at the Turiya Hotel in September 2011. This hotel is amazing! It only opened in July 2011 and i have to say it was fantastic, there is nothing i would change.
The rooms are wonderful and spotless and have everything you need, full power shower hairdryer, minibar,tv, free safe, comfortable double beds, spacious balconies and very stylish decor.
We stayed half board and the food was lovely freshly cooked and beautifully presented everyday. The pool area is spotless too with beach towels provided, there is a very small patch of beach and a platfrom with steps down into the sea with 8 sunbeds on it, and further sunbeds on the beach. We didnt struggle to find a spot everyday it was perfect.
There is also a indoor pool and gym and treatment rooms and turkish bath on site below the hotel.
The hotel is right on the beach front which is flat and a lovely 2-3 minute flat walk along the front into the main centre of town.
I would reccomend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing quieter holiday in fantastic surroundings.

Room Tip: Any all rooms are fabulous, the staff showed us a few they were all fantastic.

Some of you who have been to Turgetries before will know this hotel as the Opal, it is no longer, the owner has rebuilt the hotel to a very high standard and along with the excellent food and position it retains the staff from the old hotel who are very helpful. If you are going to Turgetries and would like a little luxury in a boutique type hotel on the seafront with its own private jetty this will be the one for you, and only a 5 minute walk into town.
