Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Villa Mahal

Patara Evler Yani, about 2 km (1 mile) east of Kalkan, Kalkan, Antalya, 07960 , Turkey Fodor's Choice

Clinging to a cliff face with a wraparound view of Kalkan Bay, this immaculate establishment is one of Turkey's most spectacular hotels, with a gorgeous pool that juts out into the air (making swimming feel like flying), a beach club at the bottom of the cliff, and a hotel boat that will take you five minutes across the bay to Kalkan Harbor for an evening in town. Be ready, however, for the 181 steps from top to bottom, and be aware that the long balcony in front of the picture windows of the standard double rooms also serves as a public walkway. If there is anywhere in the world to splurge on a great room, this is it. Try the Sunset Suite with its spacious layout and blue mosaic hot tub.
