Hotel Villa Mahal, Kalkan
An award winning boutique hotel in a spectacular setting with its own beach club
A stay at the sophisticated, stylish, boutique Hotel Villa Mahal is simply an unforgettable experience. Nestled in a prime position on a hillside in Kalkan Bay to exploit the majestic views over the Mediterranean, and Winner of the Condé Nast Johansens award for "Most Romantic Hotel" in Europe in 2007 and more recently the Winner of Condé Nast Johansens award for "Best Luxury Value" in Europe and the Mediterranean in 2020, this hotel is the ultimate in understated luxury.
The owner Ipek has showcased her flair for design in the contemporary interiors that take full advantage of the mesmerising views across the sea and beyond to Mouse and Snake Islands. With just 13 unique rooms, each with awe-inspiring views and a private terrace or balcony, the well thought-out design of the property creates many opportunities for privacy, yet the size of the hotel provides a warm, friendly ambience.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped with extensive planting to add colour and fragrance and harmonise with the lush hillside location. The 17m triangular infinity swimming pool with magnificent views is just a few steps down from the rooms, with sun-loungers, plump cushions and grassy areas on which to relax and unwind. There is also an honesty bar available to guests. Further stairs will lead you down to the crystal clear waters of the bay where you will discover the gem that is the Mahal beach club:
Stone sunbathing platforms built into the hillside and encompassed by Olive trees are dotted with sun-loungers for guests to select a secluded spot to unwind and take in the fresh clean air and the sound of the waves. There is direct sea access from the terraces so you can easily cool off with a swim when the mood takes you. A chic waterside restaurant provides refreshments throughout the day and if you desire something a little more active, all manner of water sports can be arranged.
Breakfast is an exquisite affair, served on the magnificent panoramic roof terrace with sweeping bay views. At dusk, imaginative and clever lighting transform the feel of the Waterside terrace restaurant and set the mood for a memorable evening ahead.
