COMMENTS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS...
Bayram tatilinde 3 gece 4 gün tam deniz manzaralı suit odada konakladık. İşletme bu yıl el değiştirmiş. Odanın temizliğinden manzarasına, Mehmet Usta’mın el lezzetinden İlker Bey’in güler yüzüne kadar her şey harikaydı.
We stayed in a suite room with full sea view for 3 nights and 4 days during the holidays. The business changed hands this year. Everything from the cleanliness of the room to the view, from Mehmet Usta’s hand delicacy to İlker’s smiling face, everything was wonderful.
We stayed here for just over a week in the middle of summer. The hotel upgraded our room which just completed a truly wonderful experience at Kalkan. The location of the hotel is away from the hussle and bussle and about 30 seconds away from crystal clear water beaches. The staff were polite and friendly – even the chef catered to our varied meal requests. Breakfast was a mix of hot and cold and plentiful, it was like our own personal buffet. The hotel is clean and adheres to COVID protection protocols (a big win as many around the area didn’t have the same standards). You can walk to the local market (or call them as they deliver). The staff are super friendly and really helped a lot with navigating around Kalkan. The hotel’s location is not central so you may benefit from having a car. We will definitely come back here again and would definitely recommend to those of you who want gorgeous beaches that are not heavily populated, comfort and clean rooms with beautiful views and quick and ready access to markets and restaurants.
We had one of the smaller rooms but it was very clean and because Kalkan and its surrounds are so stunning and full of things to see and do that was perfect. We also drove to Kaş (which is great for shopping for souvenirs and jewellery and other Knick knacks for a good price as Kalkan is more pricey because it’s saturated with Brits whereas Kaş is predominantly where Turks holiday and just a 30 min drive from Kalkan); Kekova to do a private day-long boat trip with the legend Captain Mutlu (+90 532 767 19 48). We also drove to Saklıkent, which is absolutely stunning.
We would highly recommend eating at Salonica 1881 in the Kalkan town centre. If you’re going to a seaside town in Turkey, please eat the seafood!! The staff here were amazing and classy. At Salonica 1881 PLEASE eat their mezze’s (fava is a must!!), the grilled octopus and the fresh (not farmed) fish, which you choose from inside the restaurant. It was the most delicious seafood we have ever had and we’re saying that as Australians!! Oh and don’t forget to wash it down with a glass of Rakı 😉
In Kaş we ate at Havana Balık Evi. Their food was cheap and so delicious and they seemed to be a family run business – such lovely people. So please support them! We had balık ekmek (fish sandwich), shepherd salad and locally caught fresh calamari which was fried in a delicious light batter and served with a beautiful light sauce.
We would highly recommend staying at Kuluhana and driving around to make sure you see and experience all these amazing places and people. Some photos below. Kalkan, Kaş, the ancient Lycian, Greek and Roman ruins in Patara and Xanthos, the sunken Lycian city in Kekova, Kaputaş beach and the beautiful national park of Saklıkent with its river, waterfall and white water rafting surrounded by pomegranate trees are a must see!!
After being greeted with the warmest of welcomes we were taken to our penthouse apartment and could not believe our eyes. The views were breathtaking from the luxurious comfort of our verandah. We then swam in both pools and the sea whilst being served drinks and relaxing in the glorious sunshine whilst still looking at that view. Our trip was completed with a delicious freshly prepared meal in the restaurant at which we were asked what music we wished to listen to. At the end of the meal we were joined by the owner who is the most caring and generous host you could wish to meet. Our only complaint is we didn’t stay longer..but we will be back.
This hotel is in the best location of Kalkan not in main centre but just a short boat or taxi ride away from the main harbour. The views are fabulous and we stayed in a recently renovated room which was large and exceptionally clean. The Manager and staff cannot do enough to help and the beach club just opposite the hotel is peaceful with lovely staff and the food is good. You can swim in the sea from the beach club and there is also a small pool as well as a pool at the hotel. The food is typically Turkish at the hotel and may not always come in the order you order it but it is nevertheless home cooked and very tasty. Would highly recommend The Kuluhana only think I would say is there are steps down to the beach club so not good if mobility is a problem otherwise fantastic place
Include delicious breakfast
Near to city center
Silence peaceful place
Every room have a nice view
2 pools one of in hotel garden one of them beach club
Whatever you need Mr. Gokhan do their best who is manager of the hotel.
All staffs do their best.
Lastly I definitely recommend that hotel for enjoyable, peacefully holiday.
