D-RESORT GÖCEK - DINE ON WATER Monday 20 July 2015 PDF Print D-Resort Göcek is located in the region of ancient Lycia, and the unspoilt village Göcek is known as one of the most beautiful yachting areas in Turkey, if not in the whole Mediterranean basin. It lies in the intersection of the Mediterranean and Aegean seas and the D-Resort has a stunning backdrop of mountain ranges going down to secluded beaches with crystal clear water making it pure, unspoilt Turkey at its very best. It has been likened to St Tropez in the 1960’s having avoided the excesses of package tourism with the focus on a pleasant, carless waterfront. The stylish D-Resort Göcek is an elegant boutique hotel set across eight design-led buildings. There are 130 beautiful rooms with amazing views, each incorporating light, chic and modern Mediterranean style. The hotel is surrounded by tranquil gardens going down to the sea. There are two gourmet restaurants, bars, and an ESPA spa and fitness centre and the hotel also has great meeting and events facilities. The hotel is only 100 meters from Göcek harbour so guests can take a bike from the hotel or walk into the village where you can charter the hotels’ custom made motor yacht, Sundowner, to tour the islands and secluded bays along the coast. Göcek being a major centre for Turkey’s yachting world boasts three marinas as well an annual regatta, attracting Istanbul society as well as an international clientele. For the more adventurous, there is plenty to do from trekking in the hills to sightseeing at the nearby 2000 year-old tombs, which are relics of the Lycian civilisation. At the hotel’s private beach there are many water sports facilities or one can just take time to enjoy the azure blue water in the bay. Dine on water at The Breeze restaurant, set on the jetty on the sea front, offering Aegean Cuisine famous for serving the freshest local meat and seafood, fish, fruit and home grown vegetables. In 2014 The Breeze added a Teppanyaki station and a selected sushi menu, the only restaurant of its type in the region. Above the beach, The Olive Tree Restaurant has a terrace with a view of the resort and the village of Göcek: a great place to start the day with a lavish breakfast buffet. During the day it also serves light dishes on the terrace where special menus are available on selected evenings during the summer season as well as à la carte. There are four bars in the resort: The Lobby Bar located in The Olive Tree restaurant, The Pool bar and A Sundowner bar located in The Sundowner restaurant with spectacular sea views and a Beach bar on the hotel’s private beach serving snacks and drinks throughout the day. Just launched, The Q Lounge, designed by the architects of the World famous Zuma, is a hip alternative night spot offering Izakaya style contemporary Japanese cuisine, cocktails with a menu of sushi, sashimi and robatayaki served tapas style. Relaxed lounge music intermixed with DJ performances make the Q Lounge the go-to spot in Göcek. The D-SPA is a 1500 sq. meter space and home to a state-of-the-art gym and Techno-Gym centre with views over the mountains. There is a hammam resplendent with the finest Turkish marble, as well as two private abachi wood saunas, a steam room and a vitality pool.
