“Just feeling good! – Four days Instagram experience for the Hillside Beach Club in Fethyie!
Hillside Beach Club is located 4km the Turkish town of Fethiye where is one of the towns of Turkey’s on the Mediterranean coast (don’t miss the short video impression at the end).
It’s takes just few hours from Berlin to get there. Firts short fly to Istanbul and then just another hour to Dalaman Airport where i was picked up by the Hotel shuttle. You need about 60 min to the Hotel but you can relax or just check Instagram in the car as they have free WIFI inside. Yes they have a shuttle car with own Hotel wifi for addicted Instagramers.
I arrived in the morning at this was my first view i had while getting closer to the Hotel.
I was a bit tired as i didn’t sleep the night, but at the same time i was ready for breakfast when the friendly women told me, there is a late breakfast waiting for me. If you don’t want to hurry up in the morning for breakfast after a long night, you can enjoy the delicious breakfast from 10 h till 12 h. You can enjoy the view from the Pasha restaurant and grab something to eat.
This little beautiful house is the Pasha Restaurant and you can find it just few steps away from the main restaurant.
Sorry for this, but i was so happy as i saw the breakfast and all the sweet delicious food and of course turkish tea. This is how i like to start my day.
After the breakfast around 11 h i was ready to see my room. My laguage and me has been taken with that comfortable golf car to the apartment. Life couldn’t be better.
And here we are in my room! It wasn’t huge like getting lost in it, it was the perfect size for me. One big bed, which was sooooo comfortable with the big pillows and an extra room for my clothes.
And this perfect terrace with another relaxing sofa. I am not kidding, i was thinking about sleeping there too, as the view was perfect and protected from the sun. Just a perfect place for relaxing after sunbathing.
As it was very sunny and i wanted to see the rest i went down by the pool and wasn’t surprised to see comfortable sunbeds around the huge pool. It tooks me two minutes from my room as i had another exit to get fast to the beach and the pool.
I am an addicted Instagramer, so what i allways do at a new place – i explore everything. Omg, this hotel is a paradise also for Instagramers. I found few of that cool signs helping you to make a great picture.
I spend the last few hours walking around, swimming at the pool, testing my waterproof case for the iphone. The evening was even more magic when i saw the sun going down. A magic sunset which needed to be captured – again and again – as you can see my next images too. The color of the sky changed every single minute.
Next day i decided to check the sea and went to the beach. I saw the water and it was more then clear. I put my clothes on the sundbed and jumped into the water. Can you see what amazing color it is?
This was my view from my sunbed!
Here i am relaxing a bit. But wait! I am relaxing and something is missing here: A cool drink. Then let’s push the button and few seconds later i was friendly ask for my order. I show the guy a picture that i saw on the Account on Instagram. I wanted to have the same.
The original Hillside Beach Club Coctail – kind of a very tasty gin tonic 🙂
After enjoying the drink i went to the water to test my waterproof iphone case. I spend there about one hour playing with the iphone in and under water taking images and videos. Yes it works and the case is really waterproof.
By the end of the day i just enjoed the magical view from the beach with another warm sunset and beautiful colors.
For those who would like to enjoy a romatic sunset dinner at the beach, this is it! Before dinnertime they bring some tables to the beach and a kind of carpet that makes it easier to walk to your table. This is what you get there! Reservations for dinner are required, and only drinks are charged extra.
I visited many places and hotels and to be honest it was end of june and i expected more kids screaming at the pool or at the beach. But even if there has been many guests it was still quiet and relaxing. But i wanted to check the Serenity Beach which is only for adults.
You can walk for about 8 mintues and watch the bay or if you prefer to see the sea side just take the serenity boat. The boat brings you every 30 minutes to the beach in few minutes.
The beach is not that huge but as i saw the sunbeds i knew its going to be more the relaxing. There is a small bar which offers you drinks and lunch during the day.
I just took the first sundbed and did nothing. By the way, i arrived the at around 12 h and the beach was still empty, no problem to get a sundbed or start fighting with “I leave my towel here” guests.
What a view… and it was realy quiet, no noises. Just the sound of the sea. I almost fall asleep after 10 minutes.
I am not that typical person that can relax four hours – i need to do something when it’s very hot. Of course i went swiming with my iphone again.
The rest of the day i spend ath the serenity beach just enjoying that silence. To preserve peace and quiet, and to give you the relaxing atmosphere that you deserve, children under 18 are not allowed on this beach.
I got shocked this evening at the dinner! Please go on diet one month before you visit that hotel. I am not going to show you all the food as it would need at least to many pics. Here is just a small selection of all sweets.
After the dinner i wasnt able to move or do do anything as i felt like i am dying. I eat defenitly to much of all, maybe only to much of all chocalate and strawberry sweets. Form my terrace i just watched the sunset.
For everyone who is bit more active than me and don’t want to relax at the beach or pool with delicous BBQ or cooling drinks, you can do differnt water sport activities too. Motor sports, water sports, diving sailing, beach volleyball, aqua fitness and many more.
I just forget to mentioned that there is another part called “Silent Beach” – a silent beach for adults where smartphone are not allowed, thats why i don’t have a picture for you – i cant be without my iphone, sorry i need this. Yoga sessions are held every morning at this completely quiet and relaxing beach where you can truly clear your mind.
Let’s go and try it! Sunset Wakeboarding!
My last evening i spend at the bar at the pool enjoying the tasty coctail – the “Hillside Sunset” coctail – and just feeling good!
Thank you dear Özge from ALARKO TURİZM GRUBU for that invitation and the magical experience in a beautiful place
