Hillside Beach Club: A Home Away From Home

By Paul Joseph

For those seeking a late summer getaway as the continent begins to cool, Hillside Beach Club, a luxury hideaway in the Turkish city of Fethiye, offers an idyllic mix of relaxation and adventure in contemporary comfort

Offering guests a home away from home in privately owned Kalemya Bay, surrounded by pine forests and turquoise sea, the beach club resort boasts three beaches, two spas, gourmet cuisine at three restaurants and water sports and activities galore.

Waiters arriving at sun loungers at the touch of a button and the adult-only Silent Beach, are just some of the stand-out services and amenities.

Those seeking peace and respite can take a stroll through the forest to the second adult-only beach, Serenity, or hop on the boat for the five-minute trip.

Find inner calm during a beach yoga class as the sun rises or zen out with a guided meditation. Pampering is just a little further away at the Sanda Spa or Sanda Nature Spa, where guests can indulge in a deep tissue massage in a tree-top treatment room to the backdrop of birdsong.

At the heart of the resort, the main beach buzzes with activity, with children and adults looking for activities and adventure spoilt for choice. Water babies will not be disappointed as Hillside is home to Turkey’s first official Water Skiing and Wakeboard school.

At Hillside, parents can spend quality time as a couple, relaxing over a glass of wine, safe in the knowledge that little ones are being looked after and entertained. From robot building to football competitions and DJ masterclasses, there’s something for everyone at Hillside’s two dedicated kid’s clubs.

What's more, strollers, cots, baths, bottle warmers and more are provided and a fresh baby buffet is also offered along with a dedicated baby park with water park and sandpit.

For excursions, situated just a stone’s throw from Fethiye, one of the oldest towns on the Lycian Coast, Hillside Beach Club is also ideally located for those looking to explore the region’s history, culture and landscape.

Nightly rates throughout summer start from £305 based from on two people sharing a standard room on a full board basis.
