As summer begins to fade, follow the sun to this wonderfully vibrant location, in a forested conservation area, overlooking the Sulungur Lagoon with spectacular views over the beautiful Dalyan Delta and across to Istuzu (turtle) Beach.
This newly established venue from long term retreat owners Hazur Vadisi, offers peace and privacy, immersed in nature, creating a wonderful atmosphere conducive to forest bathing, tuning into birdsong and the hum of cicadas or soaking up the rays from their private beach on the lagoon, just 15 minutes walk away. A short bus ride will take you into the charming riverside town of Dalyan, with its selection of interesting craft shops, cafes and restaurants.
A 5-minute bus ride in the opposite direction will take you to Istuzu, a long, sandy beach in the conservation area where Loggerhead turtles come to lay their eggs. Visits to the nearby ruins of ancient Caunos, a trip to the lakeside mud baths, a boat trip along the coast and excursions further afield can be arranged for those feeling more adventurous.
The Lagoon Retreat has unbeatable views, comfortable well-appointed ensuite accommodation, a
pool over-looking the sea and a fully equipped yoga shala. Not to mention the delicious meals for which
and Huzur Vadisi (it’s sister centre) has been renowned. (The Huzur Vadisi Cookbook is available on Amazon)
