Kibala Hotel comes up trumps time and time again! This was probably my 8th stay at Kibala in as many years, the last time before this being November 2009. The garden was even more beautiful than ever, our rooms were spotlessly clean, as usual. The food has always been excellent but even more so this year, and we 'ate in' every night. I'm familiar with the general restaurant fare in Cirali, and I have to say that dinner at Kibala is always special - a large range of original dishes with an emphasis on local, organic/ growth-hormone free produce, fine Turkish wines, immaculate service and excellent music, to round things off perfectly.
The breakfasts also deserve their own praise - you will not have a more varied and delicious table-served breakfast in any hotel anywhere in Turkey - everyday we were served a different home-made savoury pastry, a variety of home-made preserves (different ones everyday), local olives, locally produced yoghurt, butter and cheeses, eggs how you'd like them, a range of seasonal and dried fruit, and copious cups of delicious cay. No need for lunch. for sure.
Bulent and his staff were wonderful as ever. The concept of service is at a different level at Kibala. Unlike many of his co-hoteliers in the area, Bulent has travelled far and wide, and this shows in the way he runs his establishment and his general outlook on life, and of course his enormously rich collection of wonderful music!
We very much enjoyed our stay and are already looking forward to the next visit - May 2012? Inshallah...
