In the midst of the old city of Kaleici in Antalya, sits the charming historical Doğan Hotel which has been carefully restored in traditional Turkish style. More than 40 guest rooms are spread out across four low-rise buildings that centre on a flower-filled outdoor dining terrace and a sunlit swimming pool. This ambient setting offers an oasis in which to relax, enjoy a cup of quintessential Turkish coffee, and soak in the atmosphere of this cosy and intimate resort.
Within the Doğan’s comfortable rooms – styled in relaxing shades of burgundy, wood and richly coloured Anatolian rugs – you are provided with restful accommodation. Just 100 metres from the resort is the waterfront with its variety of restaurants, cafés, shops and a secluded beach. As you spend the day wandering along the numerous small lanes that wind amongst quaint shops, heritage buildings, houses and market places, you’ll come across the occasional remnants of the fortifications that used to surround the old city.
