After a six-month winter break, Swiss™tel Göcek Marina & Resort has opened its doors again for the summer 2009 season. The picturesque fishing village of Göcek, located right on the Turkish Mediterranean coast, has long been recommended by those in the know as a perfect place to spend an undisturbed holiday away from the masses. The hotel overlooking the bay, which is excellent for sailing, thanks partly to the ideal wind conditions, offers crystal-clear water, idyllic Mediterranean scenery and a private sandy beach. Swiss™tel Göcek Marina & Resort is the only hotel in the village, and boasts its own 280-metre-long private beach along with a marina with berths for 400 yachts. The hotel, which has just 57 bedrooms, provides a superb setting for a restful holiday in a peaceful location. The luxurious rooms are equipped with every modern amenity and all have a balcony or terrace with a stunning view of the turquoise sea or the surrounding mountains.
Water sport options of every kind are available within nearby, from diving and parasailing to sailing excursions and windsurfing. White water rafting, cycling and walking tours can also be arranged through the hotel. Guests who prefer something a little more relaxing can take advantage of the outdoor pool, sauna, massage and beauty treatments. Moreover Swiss™tel Göcek Marina & Resort got the “Blue Flag” for a maritime and freshwater recreational beach.
However, the Turkish Riviera has much more to offer than sun, sea and fine cuisine: for art and culture enthusiasts, Swiss™tel Göcek Marina & Resort organises numerous excursions to the historical sites in the area, such as the fascinating Lycian ruins in the Xanthos valley or the historical harbour town of Caunos.
Göcek is just 25 minutes from Dalaman International Airport and can be reached easily by public transport. Its mild climate means that even in the autumn, Göcek is the ideal place to enjoy a few days of sun on the Turkish Mediterranean coast.
