Sun, Sea and Saksuka

Oludeniz in Turkey is over 2500 miles from Bath or Bristol but we can make our own little Bristol on the beach!

A group of us have booked a package through Travel Republic (https://www.travelrepublic.co.uk/).

Our flights are:

Depart: 14 Sep[masked]:50 Arrive: 14 Sep[masked]:55 Description: Bristol - Dalaman 13:50 / 19:55 (TCX7914)

Depart: 28 Sep[masked]:10 Arrive: 29 Sep[masked]:40 Description: Dalaman - Bristol 22:10 / 00:40 (TCX7915)

Some of us are staying at the Perdikia Beach Hotel (http://www.perdikia.com/) in Oludeniz, Fethiye-Mugla, Turkey. It is four star with indoor and outdoor pools, a spa, sauna and Turkish bath. Also gets great reviews.

Others are at the Olympos Hotel (http://www.olymposhotel.com/) in Ovacik Mah, Oludeniz.

Oludeniz is full of hotels to fit all budgets.

Come and join us!

Caffè Ritazza is to the right of the arrivals entrance on the ground floor and before security. We can arrange other meeting points after security once we get there.

    2 · August 21

  • Phil R.

    been looking on google for Turkish eating places, lots of take aways in town but no decent eateries, apart from one in Gloucester road, so perhaps a few pubs after a meal too that way ?

    August 21

  • Christine

    Hi all, looks like an amazing place. I'll join for a week. Not sure yet if the first or second week, but probably the first.
    Did anyone pre-book shuttles from the airport? And is anyone thinking about/would anyone be interested in hiring a car? I have exactly no idea of public transport over there.

    1 · July 6

    • Jude

      Hi Lisa, I'm staying at the Ata Lagoon Beach Hotel, which is maybe a few hundred metres away from the main one people are staying at. By the time I booked, the prices at the main hotel had gone up, and the prices at Ata Lagoon, were still reasonable. Hi Phil, I have a shuttle too, since I'm only there for the first week, and need to get back to the airport!

      1 · August 5

    • Jon E.

      Our Travel Republic booking included shuttles for less than £10.

      August 14

    • Richard E.

      The link i have just posted will hopefully be of use. See you soon :)

      August 7

    • Phil R.

      top link rich, a few things to try out me thinks !

      1 · August 12

  • Phil R.

    oh crap, end of hol clashes with me going up to Glasgow for the ryder cup, so will only be there until the weds of the second week now. have managed to change holiday details as paperwork not come through yet, so no major charges for changing my booking which was a relief.

    You guys should check this out http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=[masked]&lon=[masked]&z=16&m=b Zoom in one time and you will find the Perdika beach hotel to the right in the second -ish row back from the beach. The Olympos is up the road at the back in the more populated area (Its easier to search it by name in the search section). As a guide in a trip adviser review one couple described the Manzara and Paradise garden boutique hotel as a 15 min walk to the beach. These two are located on the road out of the beach area about 5 hotels up. Gives an idea of scale. Going to try and come but cant book anything until tomorrow earliest as need permission from work and I will overlap my understudy by 1 day. Looks cool.

  • Phil R.

    right finally found a place that's not too pricy and still available, i'm staying for the 14 nights at the WHITE HOTEL in Oludeniz, see you soon if not before at a do in Bristol !

    1 · July 29

  • Phil R.

    i'd like to join you, sounds like a blast and could do with recharging the batteries around that time and sharing a sunny break as well as top days and nights out

    July 22

  • Christine
