About our home

We are really offering a small, specialist group holiday hotel because Spectrum Turkey, Dalyan, is a dedicated, purpose built yoga holiday retreat but best to describe it as our home with lots of bedrooms! See www.spectrumturkey.co.uk for photographs of the venue, rooms, accommodation, grounds and swimming pool.

As it is a business we are mostly only able to offer this out of season ie mid November to mid March, possibly April but this year we have many empty weeks in July and the first two weeks of August. I couldn't list the number of rooms/bathrooms accurately when I first put this on to exchange: there are 10 single rooms, plus 4 twin/double rooms all with ensuite and air conditioning and there are other toilets/showers too on the ground floor for general use. There is a large main salon (comfortable seating, table and chairs plus TV & DVD player), kitchen, vast terraces to eat alfresco, relax and possibly sunbathe, plus a large outdoor "room" (we have created protection with clear plastic awnings to keep the rain out/keep it warm) with comfortable sofas, dining tables and chairs, large library of books and DVD's, TV/DVD player - we use the TV in the salon to watch online TV and/or DVD's. Plenty of shady areas, a vast yoga space, massage room and tree house which is a big hit with our yoga guests. Spectrum is set on 6,300 square metres of land surrounded by fields of pomegranates, oranges and lemons, so no neighbours next door! We are 1 mile from the centre of Dalyan and the river where you can get boats to the beach, out to sea or up the river to the lake.

Staff can be made available to cook and clean if you wish but this is not included unless you are offering something similar.

  2. We have a hotel here in Dalyan - more like a retreat, a specialist group holiday venue mostly attracting yoga groups

  3. We generally only travel during our winter, so from November to March/April

Where is it?


Dalyan is a quiet resort situated on a river between a large lake and the sea. There are no hotels/houses near the beach or sea. Dalyan is a conservation area due to the turtles (sea and river) and at different times of the year you will see plenty of Storks (they arrive Feb/Mar and usually migrate August). Many of our guests use it as a base going off for a few days at a time to visit Ephesus, Pamukkale, or Olympus, Antalya, Cappadocia and even Konya. But Dalyan has a lot to offer to and many house exchange guests want to come back and some have already - they came for 2 weeks and returned fir 6! Do a search on Dalyan or look at it from Google Earth, you won't be disappointed. Dalaman airport is now open all year round (30 min away), you will probably fly internally from Istanbul or get the overnight bus, flights are available from all UK airports during the summer months and the main ones during the winter. We now have a Turtle rehabilitation centre on the beach so you will get to see some turtles & learn how to protect them and can even have the pleasure of meeting Kaptan June who was recently awarded an OBE - Tom will sang at her celebratory garden party!
