Why Rejuvenate at Palace Gokbel?

Do you ever yearn for somewhere to slow down, breathe, rest re-energise? Well, how about a six-night stay at Palace Gokbel; a Turkish yoga retreat that looks like a little slice of heaven?

The Indian-influenced Palace overlooks Turtle Beach, an idyllic lake and the Dalyan Delta mountain ranges, making it the ideal spot to let your worries melt away. Gently awoken by shafts of sunlight in your beautifully decorated, luxury room, you'll dine on a scrumptious traditional Turkish breakfast, perform yoga, pilates and sun salutations on the roof terrace before chilling by the pool with a glass of wine.

And that’s all before midday!

So, what happens after Midday at Palace Gokbel?

The afternoons are yours to do with as you please - you can snooze in a hammock by the pool, partake in an artistic interest like sketching, painting and writing or mosey down to turtle beach; a protected area, where the Carretta turtles come to lay their eggs.

The more adventurous can travel to nearby Dalyan town, which is blessed with Lycian rock tombs, Lake Koycegiz, the ancient ruins of Caunos, mud baths and natural sulphur springs. On Saturdays, there’s a traditional Turkish bazaar with delicious foods and artisanal jewellery.

Late afternoons and evenings see more yoga and breathing exercises before dinner in The Olive Garden Restaurant - most likely barbecued fresh fish, seasonal vegetables and salad.
