This was our first visit to Turkey and i doubt anything will live up to the standard of Beyaz Yunus Olu Deniz. Arriving at the hidden paradise, all you can see from the road is a blue wooden gate. Behind that gate houses the most perfect little oasis. Seven tranquil suites, a day bar, which doubles as a reception, a sunset bar, a lovely sunbed deck with glorious views and an infinity pool. Everything looks out over the sea with the most stunning views. Then there's the open air restaurant where you take both breakfast and dinner (there is a shaded area too for those who prefer not to eat in direct sun). The only decision we had to make all week was what wine to have with dinner! Not having to choose what you want to eat is something of a revelation - but only because the food is absolutely divine. Tasty, plentiful and cooked with fresh ingredients often from their own little vegetable garden. You are informed the night before of what the next nights menu will be. Anything on there you don't like then there's no problem, it will be changed to something equally delicious. All this may sound lovely, but what makes this little place truly amazing is the service. Mustafa and his small team deliver service unrivaled in europe and possible the rest of the world. For the smiley friendly team headed up by Mustafa, nothing is too much trouble. It's almost like having your own personal butler. He is there 24/7 for whatever it is that you need. Always smiling and completely unflappable. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this team is. We also each had a massage whilst we are there. Gianna the lady who comes in once a week is just lovely. She is also technically a fantastic masseuse - make sure you book in early though as she can only do a couple of the massages per day. The only down side - apart from having to come home - is that at around 9pm you can sometimes here the bar noises from "town". They weren't loud enough to ruin our evening or even disturb our sleep, but we were there at the start of the season so no sure if this would worsen later in the season. That said despite never going to the same place twice, we are already looking to book for next year!
PS - ask Mustafa for one of his homemade Lemonata's. It's lemonade, but not as you know it. The perfect cool down to watch the sunset!
