Antalya (Aegean Coast)

Over a 600km stretch of beautiful Mediterranean coastline, Antalya offers visitors a wide range of accommodation. Though many of the hotels in Antalya can be found in either the old district of Kaleici or the beach resort town of Lara, there is abundance of options to address all your accommodation desires. Whether it’s stylish, modern boutique hotels in the Old District or the lavish royal treatment in a five-star resort, Antalya will meet your taste.




The Old Town of Antalya is rich in character with narrow winding streets, stone cobbled roads and classic Ottoman-architecture houses. Most of the city's accommodation options are located here and with the main attractions of the old district well within walking distance, it's the perfect place to stay. Expect to find small boutique hotels that have been formed out of restored historical old mansions.




Lara is the area in Antalya where five-to-seven star resorts rule the lands. Situated east of the city and relatively close to Antalya airport, the accommodation here mainly caters for the all-inclusive holiday market. With soft white sand and clear blue waters surrounding the area, Lara is the place to stay for a real holiday escape.




Located 43 kilometers from Antalya, the attractive village town of Kemer lies on the outskirts of the Taurus Mountains. Surrounded by scenic mountains, tranquil forest, green lands and the gorgeous coastline, Kemer is perfect place to stay for a truly relaxing holiday. Situated nearby is the ancient Lycian city of Phaselis where you can easily spend your days admiring its glorious past.




Three hours west of Antalya lies Kas - the unspoilt small fishing town that boasts a world-class diving scene. The hotels located around here aim to please the travelers who are simply wanting nothing but to relax on its sandy white beaches, soak the sun and swim in its crystal clear waters.




The beach resort city of Alanya is situated two hours east of Antalya and has been a favourite holiday destination for locals and foreigners alike due to its warm weather, soft sandy beaches, its multiple water sport activities and a growing fine dining scene.




With over 45 luxury hotels built on a 22km stretch of a wide sandy beach, Belek was essentially made for the holidaymaker. Visitors are given the royalty treatment with Belek offering a wide variety of leisure activities including tennis courts, health and fitness centers, swimming and sunbathing facilities, relaxation spas and world-class golf courses.
