The best hotels for a holiday in İçmeler


İçmeler is a popular Turkish holiday resort. A quieter alternative to Marmaris, many people appreciate the serene beauty and less crowded environment. When guests can be torn away from the amazing facilities of the hotels below, hiking through the dense pine forests that surround İçmeler on three sides is a popular option.


Moonlight Apartments
Moonlight Apartments provide Spanish style accommodations nestled within the lush green mountains, offering authentic Turkish luxury and spectacular views. This resort has a wide variety of amenities catering especially to family-goers, but also couples including a serene sun terrace with sunloungers and parasols, children’s pool and playground, waterslide, bicycle rentals and more. Room styles are focused on full service apartment accommodation, allowing you all the comforts of home, with clean and minimal styles throughout.


L’Etoile Beach Hotel
L’Etoile Beach Hotel offers quality facilities within modern accommodations. The rooms are sizable and comfortable, with bright walls and soothing accents. After spending an afternoon tanning in the sun, party until dawn at the multiple bars set in the resort center. With its beachfront location strategically located 200m from the happening resort center, you get the best of both worlds.


Grand Aquarium Apartments
The Grand Aquarium Apartments is spoilt for choice in facilities; everyone in the family will be kept thoroughly engaged. Kids will love whizzing down the waterslide at the pool while the adults can read a book while lounging at the sun terrace. After the children are done frolicking, the daily activities and nightly entertainment programs sure to please. With all of this set in the amazing resort of Içmeler, what more could you want?


Hotel Marmaris Palace
Hotel Marmaris Palace is wonderfully situated on the deep blue waters of Marmaris bay. Surrounded by a towering pine forest, it offers a unique opportunity for guests as they can participate in a tree top climbing adventure. Not only that, but other excellent activities are available such as scuba diving and boccia. Instead of taking a dolmus to the Içmeler centre, rent a bicycle and ride along the beachfront promenade adjoining the two.


Hotel Golmar Beach
Hotel Golmar Beach has an ideal spot perched directly on the beachfront on a less-crowded bay. Grab a drink and admire the views of the sea from your room balcony. The atmosphere here is decidedly quiet, perfect for those looking for a soothing place to relax. To explore the shops and eateries in the main area, simply take the pedestrian promenade to Içmeler, seven minutes away.


Marmaris Park

Kids will go wild for the epic waterslide that weaves through the trees and dispels into the sea. Grownups can get pampered with beauty treatments and massages. With its own beachfront promenade, complete with platforms and jetties, there are many spots to soak up the Turkish sun.

No worries, you can drop them off at the hotel-run kids’ club while you lounge on the sun terraces or enjoy the expansive pool facilities and bar. Explore a variety of on-site entertainment options including performances in the amphitheater.


Julian Forest Suites

The staff are amicable and the accommodations are spotless and cheery. Situated at the edge of the resort, the regular dolmus service ensures that you can traverse the area easily.
