Likya Residence Hotel & Spa

One of our guests' favourites in Kalkan, Turkey

Arguably the best hotel in the region, the stunning Likya Residence and Spa is a luxurious adult-only retreat, yet just a short stroll from the heart of the charming harbour town of Kalkan.

All of the light, airy and incredibly spacious rooms and suites offer unrivalled sea views and have a large balcony or terrace, a superb spot to sit and watch the sun go down over the deep blue Mediterranean. We also feature the Likya Retreat, which is in an annexe consisting of three spacious suites less than a minutes’ stroll to the main hotel building.
