The Doria Hotel

Boutique holidays in Kas

Stylish hotels and villas with breathtaking sea views

The Kas Peninsula is a wonderful setting for a holiday: the views across the blue sea to the Greek island of Meis are spectacular and the land slopes down to the rocky coastline where swimming platforms let you plunge straight into the crystal clear water.

Kas is perhaps a little like the ‘big brother’ of Kalkan. Like Kalkan, it has an attractive harbour and winding cobbled streets climbing a hillside, it has a slightly bohemian feel, attracting a range of visitors of different nationalities and ages.  The town has a wonderful selection of shops and restaurants, many with charming roof terraces with views over the square and harbour front.

The town has two beaches, Big Pebble Beach and Little Pebble Beach. More beaches may be visited by taking one of the water-taxis from the harbour to the other side of the bay (about fifteen minutes each way). The dramatically positioned sandy gorge of Kaputas is well worth a visit and can be reached in about twenty minutes by car or local bus (dolmus).

Kas is also a diver’s delight and is renowned for the being one of the best diving spots in the Mediterranean.  there are also many other activities available such as kayaking, gulet trips and walking in the dramatic scenery of the Taurus Mountains, not to mention the abundance of ancient historical sites waiting to be explored.

To enhance your holiday with Discerning Collection, we are more than happy to confirm little extras for your holiday, all of which can be pre-booked via our team in the UK prior to your holiday, or locally via our hosts in resort:

Airlines We Use

british airways flightUnlike many tour operators we do not commit to one particular airline to fly you, our guests, to our lovely destinations. Instead, we prefer to give you a choice of which airport you’d like to travel from, on what day you’d like to travel on and also for exactly how long you’d like to holiday for. Gone are the days when the norm was a seven or fourteen night holiday in the sun. Now our guests are, quite rightly, are demanding more flexible lengths of holiday and also more convenient local airports to fly from.

At Discerning Collection we leave the choice up to you and we will endeavour to provide you with exactly the day, airport and length of holiday that you want. It’s your holiday not ours and we don’t see why anyone should be restricted to flying on any given day. With some hotels and certainly gulets, the day of departure may depend on the date of when the hotel has availability or when the gulet has to sail. However, we have negotiated with all our hotels and they have accepted that they will receive guests on any day of arrival. Gulet sailings still remain on Saturdays however and this is one exception to our new rule.

Currently our airline partners include British Airways, Monarch Airlines, TUI, Thomas Cook, Jet2 , Easyjet and Turkish Airlines among others. However, we are happy to use any recognised  airline that will get our guests to their destination in a timely manner and with a highly reliable level of service.

With these airlines, we also give you the flexibility to choose how much luggage you take, if you would like to pre-book seats or those with extra leg room, and in flight meals if offered.
