I've just returned from staying at the Kibala and couldn't possibly say enough good stuff about the place, the people or the food.
We arrived fairly late in the evening (11ish) and still Bulent, Ness and Aylen were there ready with a gorgeous meal for us....all 7 courses of it! The good times didn't stop there; every day presented a new culinary delight. And the best bit? There was no need to choose. Course after course was brought out without having to give it any thought whatsoever. I became one of those sad people who has nothing better to do with their day than check the dinner menu in the morning, then just lay on the beach all day thinking about whats to come!
The food isn't all the Kibala is about though, it's the people and the size of the place which really make it. There are only 6 bungalows so you're never looking at the place being over-crowded and they're far enough apart that we never felt like we were on top of each other. The gardens are so pretty it was just a treat to sit outside the bungalow in the deck chairs provided and chill out for a while...the whole morning could go by before we realised the time...ah bliss!
There are stacks of books to borrow or bikes to take yourself off on and the beach is only a short walk away. Bulent is more than happy to help with pretty much anything, Ness and Aylen are absolute sweethearts and even the chef came out to check the bikes over for us when he saw us looking them over. They really did make it a very special holiday for us.
Top tip...when you head down to the beach be sure to check out Oleander's...it's a great place for lunch and they make a mean caipirinha!
All in all it was a fabulous trip. We did nothing other than eat, drink and lay on the beach and I'd do it all again in an instant. ...
