Five Luxury Hotels in Turkey 

If you are intent on taking a holiday in Turkey, you’ll face the difficult task of choosing where to go. City break or beach holiday? Mountain retreat or a gulet cruise down the coast? One thing that each of the destinations has in common is the quality of the accommodation on offer. From grand five star resort hotels to intimate boutique hotels and private villas, there is an embarrassment of luxurious places to stay. If you’re looking for inspiration, listed below are five of the best luxury hotels Turkey has to offer in a variety of different resorts and cities.



One of the most picturesque and unspoilt Turkish resorts, Kalkan is home to some of the truly great luxury hotels of Turkey. The Asfiya qualifies as something of a hidden gem, but it is one of the resort’s best. Inside this unobtrusive building is a luxurious haven, built around a central courtyard of gardens and a pool. The standard rooms are excellent, but the private suites are simply the last word in private luxury, especially the two rooftop suites.






Kas is a particular highlight for scuba divers, but anyone can enjoy the beautiful scenery and laid back atmosphere of this lovely Turkish resort. The Villa Hotel Tamara is the pick of the accommodation here, with breathtaking coastal views, enormous suites, and excellent, attentive service.








The vibrant, multi-cultural city of Istanbul is an essential place to visit, and it is naturally home to the very best luxury hotels Turkey can give you. Choosing just one out of the many five star hotels is a hard thing to do, but the Ciragan Palace Kempinski stands out from the crowd. Once a home for the Ottoman Sultans and located right on the edge of the Bosphorus, this superb hotel offers stunning accommodation in a perfect location. With an expansive pool, private gardens, luxury spa, and one of the finest restaurants in Istanbul all located in the grounds, this is a luxury experience that you’ll never forget.



Kaya Valley-Turkey

Kaya Valley

Only a short distance from the coast but providing a much more peaceful and secluded atmosphere, the beautiful Kaya Valley is the place to go for a truly relaxing retreat. Located only a stone’s throw away from the abandoned ‘ghost town’ of Kaya, the Doga Apartments provide one of the best accommodation options in the valley. The friendly service of the hosts is second to none, and each of the six apartments is tastefully decorated, with a shared pool, numerous local walking paths and wonderful views of the valley completing the experience.





If you want to be adventurous on your Turkish holiday, Cappadocia is the place to be. From horse riding and cycling to hot air balooning and hiking, this land of caves and mountains is truly one of Turkey’s natural wonders. Matching the extraordinary landscape is the Cappadocia Cave Resort and Spa. Built into the slopes of a hill and featuring extraordinarily luxurious facilities, it is simply one of the finest luxury hotels Turkey has ever seen.
