HOTEL VILLA MAHAL

The über-chic Hotel Villa Mahal is quite simply breath-taking, her curved white walls spilling down across a hillside towards the endless expanse of blue Mediterranean. Winner of the Condé Nast Johansens’ award for Most Romantic Hotel in Europe in 2007, boutique hotels simply don’t come more stylish than this.

The owner, Ipek, has a flare for design which is nowhere more evident than at Hotel Villa Mahal. Located across the bay from the main harbour at Kalkan, the sea-front situation affords panoramic views across the water towards the town in one direction, and the open sea in the other.

On reaching the water’s edge, however, you’ll discover her hidden gem — the Mahal Beach Club. Abutting the water’s front are layers of platforms built into the rocks, under the shady olive groves. Here and there are dotted hammocks and loungers on which to curl up and relax with a good book. A stone’s throw out to sea are swimming platforms from where guests can while away the hours, enjoying nothing but the sound of the gently lapping water.

Hotel Villa Mahal is spaciously laid out, its design contemporary and it has just 13 rooms. Each room has a shower/WC, air-conditioning, direct dial telephones, safety deposit box, mini-bar, iPod dock, hair dryer, and a bathrobe and slippers are provided for guests to use.

The Kalkan sunsets are as mesmerizing as they are magical and when the stars start twinkling in the evening sky, you can lose yourself in the knowledge that you are in a place like no other on earth.
‘After two weeks of clear blue skies, warm seas and fresh local food we all fell in love with Turkey and felt there was genuine warmth to the hospitality here.’
