Scene

Contemporary upscale resort on sprawling grounds with lovely sea views

One of the main highlights of this upscale hotel is its picturesque location, which is scenically set on a hilltop that commands gorgeous, scenic vistas of the sea and coastline. The white modern architecture that's sprawled across the grounds is complemented by large green lawns and swathes of colorful flower beds. Interiors are bright and airy, furnished with pleasant contemporary decor and a mostly white color palette that's contrasted by pops of vibrant hues.

Guests tend to spend most of their time outdoors, and there are ample lovely areas in which to relax, be it lounging on a sunbed in the garden, dipping into the pools, or catching the sunset on the bar terrace. The clientele here is a mixed group of couples and families with kids, and both types of travelers are catered to. Note that there are many steps and stairways navigating throughout the property, which might be a problem for those with mobility issues -- but there are elevators and disabled access as well.

Location

Scenic hilltop location with sea views, an eight-minute drive to the beach

The hotel is situated on a hilltop overlooking the resort village of Ölüdeniz, the sea, and the surrounding green coastline. Ölüdeniz Beach is about an eight-minute drive away, and the hotel offers a free shuttle service. There's not much in the immediate area beyond a couple of other hotels, but there are dining options and shops down by the beach. Alternatively, guests can head uphill to Ölüdeniz Belediyesi for dining, shops, and other services (about a 20-minute walk uphill or four-minute drive). For many more dining options, shopping, cultural attractions, and historic ruins, the port city of Fethiye is about a 25-minute drive away. Dalaman Airport is a 70-minute drive from the hotel.

Rooms

Clean, contemporary rooms have flat-screen TVs, tea/coffee facilities, minibars, and balconies

Rooms are bright and clean, with sleek contemporary decor and furnishings in mainly white hues that are contrasted by pops of color, like yellow sofas and armchairs. Crisp white bedding is topped with striped bed runners and accent pillows, while photos of the area adorn the walls. The spaces are full of natural light thanks to large windows and glass doors that open onto balconies with seating. Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, DVD players, air-conditioning, minibars, electric kettles, electronic safes, and free Wi-Fi. Bathrooms are sleek, modern, and minimalist in style, equipped with walk-in rainfall showers; suites add whirlpool tubs.

Entry-level Standard Rooms start at 248 square feet/23 square meters and have sitting areas with armchairs. Suites are 377 square feet/35 square meters and add extras like sofas and whirlpool tubs. Family Rooms are also available, measuring 430 square feet/40 square meters and sleeping up to four people. Guests seeking even more space can opt for one of the seven villas, which have three bedrooms, a living room, and a kitchen, plus access to a shared pool.

Features

Outdoor and indoor pools (including waterslides), spa and fitness facilities, four dining options and four bars, kids' club, and entertainment

The resort offers an array of fun features and activities to occupy guests' time. There's a massive main outdoor pool (675 square meters/7265 square feet) that's surrounded by umbrella-shaded loungers. There's also a kids' pool, as well as a pool with five waterslides. The hotel's wellness club offers an indoor pool. Spa facilities include a Turkish bath, sauna, steam room, and a cold plunge pool. There's also a beauty and hair salon. The fitness center is equipped with a variety of dated cardio machines. For outdoor activities, there's a scenically situated sports court with views of the sea.

Dining-wise, there are several options. The main destination is the buffet restaurant that serves Turkish and international fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The hotel also has three a la carte restaurants (which are part of the all-inclusive package, but require reservations and a reservation fee) that offer Turkish, Italian, and Chinese fare. There are four bars, including a poolside bar, a terrace bar with lovely views, a lobby bar, and a disco bar.

The hotel's animation team provides day and evening entertainment, plus there's an outdoor theater for performances and shows. Families are catered to with a kids' club that has both indoor and outdoor play areas. Other amenities include meeting/event space, free Wi-Fi throughout the property, and free shuttle service to the beach.
