“Postcard-perfect views and total privacy at this grown-up seaview hideaway”
The 7 rooms feel very private, with bi-fold glass doors that give access to terraces and frame panoramic sea views. Décor is a mix of traditional and modern, with a nod to the nautical; a cool, crisp palette of blues, whites and browns. The sofas opposite your flat-screen wouldn’t seem out of place in your home, but bathrooms are very grand with marble detail, rain showers and hammams.
Rooms 1 and 5 are worth the extra spend. Room 1 has a private pool and hammock (though the view from its terrace has less wow factor). Room 5 has a huge terrace with uninterrupted views, an alfresco Jacuzzi and shower, and a larger, brighter bedroom.
Other rooms, though priced the same, vary considerably in terms of size, though no terraces are overlooked and each has an outdoor Jacuzzi (the water is not heated). Some bedrooms are darker than others.
Staying true to their past, dinner at Beyaz Yunus is a candlelit affair focusing on fresh fish, which is often cooked on the open grill. We ate a delicious mezze of prawns with garlic and raisins, homemade walnut bread, French onion salad and tuna filo rolls, followed by yummy tuna kebabs and then a chocolate soufflé.
Breakfast can be eaten at any time, in the restaurant or on your private terrace (as can lunch and dinner). It consists of eggs to order, pancakes, or a range of cold Continental options. Lunch is a range of salads, sandwiches and tapas.
Olu Deniz has a vast range of alternative restaurants within driving distance. Staff can advise.
