Fethiye, Mediterranean Region, Turkey|hillsidebeachclub.com|
Official star rating:
Occupying a postcard-perfect beachfront location in Fethiye’s beautiful Kalemya Bay, this is a classy holiday village that caters to every recreational and creative need. The property is backed by pine-clad hillsides where the 330 rooms are arranged.
The ‘full-board plus’ guests can gorge at a selection of restaurants, participate in a wide range of sporting and leisure activities, or laze on the hotel’s exquisite adult-only beaches.
With everything to hand, it’s unlikely to suit the culturally curious, but is nevertheless a winner of its kind.
Apart from the designated footpaths to the holiday village’s outlying beaches, it’s hard to venture beyond the pine-clad hill which backs the property; the single road out of Hillside is not designed for walkers, and the adjacent empty hillsides are steep and rocky.
The only way of exploring beyond this contained world is by the regular shuttles to the nearby town of Fethiye, or by hiring a car.
