Gardenia Boutique Hotel
Travel Blogs from Kas
This morning we followed the mediterranean coast west onto Kalekoy. On our way we visited the rock cut tombs of Myra and St Nicholas Museum. After lunch we boarded our boat 'Myra' and sailed the pristine blue waters stopping for several swims along the way. From the glass viewing areas of the boat we observed the remnants of an ancient city and it's ruins. With the shifting of the earth from ...
The Monarch desk at Gatwick is a tad crazy, but we trickle though eventually. Although we are with a bunch of holidaymakers there doesn't appear to be many kids. That's usually a good sign. The flight is uneventful then it's Turkish passport control. This is pretty disorganised but again we get though eventually. Then it's on the mini bus for the 2 hour transfer to ...
... to Kas turned into a 4 hour journey from there. When the dolmus came and drove us to the place to get the bus to Kas, we ended up waiting for a "direct" bus, instead of taking the minibus that went nearby and would make us switch again. So we waited 30-40 minutes- then this "direct bus" pulled up- another dolmus, which was full of people. We were escorted into the front bench seat for the ride. For some reason, while there was air conditioning in the rest of the bus, ...
... It was alot of fun.
The food was just as amazing on this trip and funnily enough the dinners each night were the same as I had had on the first cruise! Obviously the menu is pre-planned through the agency based on the port. Each night I slept on the deck of the boat and I saw so many shooting stars.
One day we had really horrible rough seas and a journey that should of taken us 3 ...
... from Ephesus before hitting the equally steep Aegean coastline. The roads were good and the fellow drivers seemed as enthralled by the views as I was, ensuring that everybody drove with ease and consideration. I also stumbled on something I had never seen before. In 3 or 4 valleys came across a never ending sea of white buildings which turned out to be tomato greenhouses. Each valley must of been 3 miles by 3 miles of endless grow houses. There were no homes just ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Gardenia Boutique Hotel Kas
Absolutely the best hotel in Kas
When you step in your room in Gardenia, your holiday starts, with the perfect clean and fresh air of your room. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, well furnished and also have magnificent view. If you want a peacefull holiday it's the perfect choice.
The owners of the hotel are very kind, friendly and helpfull in every subject like daily trips or where to eat for lunch. The extra snacks are very cheap and also well presented.
Gradenia is one of the hotels that me and my husband are looking forward to go again for a peacefull and problem free holiday.
As all the other reviews have emphasised, the Gardenia is a fabulous hotel with excellent rooms (particularly the bathrooms) and wonderful staff. My girlfriend and I loved our stay and my birthday was made extra special when I was presented with a delicious birthday cake on the terrace. The owner and his staff ensured that our holiday in Kas exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend this friendly, stylish and tranquil hotel.
Fantastic place to stay!!
We spent 2 weeks in Turkey for our honeymoon and the Gardenia was our favorite hotel!! The family owned hotel had a great personal feel to it. When they found out we were on our honeymoon they had a bottle of champagne and fruit waiting for us when we arrived. The hotel is steps away from one of Kas' beach clubs and a very short walk from the restaurants and shops of Kas. I recommend the Gardenia with all the confidence that you will have an incredible time too!
We arrived at the Gardenia four hours after finishing a gullet boat trip in Fethiye. Needless to say we were hot, sticky and exhausted. We arrived at the Gardenia, were told that tea and cakes were offered at 4pm on the flower strewn terrace, and then proceeded to take a shower in the largest, most beautiful bathroom we have ever seen. The bathroom alone could have been a vacation spot. Clean and refreshed, we sat on the terrace overlooking the water, drank tea, ate cake and congratulated ourselves for finding a truly refined and sophisticated hotel. The rooms were splendid -- just minimalist enough without sacrificing luxury. They offered us internet access from their computer and were always solicitous of our needs. The hotel had no pool, which is a drawback on hot days, but the swimming club was just across the street and the ocean is great.
This is a really excellent hotel in which to stay in Kas. Because it is small the owner and staff have time to spend with guests and are very willing to help with any problems that a tourist may encounter. The hotel is up some steps from the road, which can be tricky after a large meal of "manti" and Efes, but does means that there is a wonderful view over the "terraced" beach towards the islands, and that there is a coooling breeze. This is especially useful for breakfast and evening drinks on the patio. The rooms are not that large, but pleasantly laid out and well decorated, with varied artwork leading upstairs to the rooms. The whole hotel has recently been refurbished, which makes it clean and uncluttered, with new furniture etc, and a very relaxed atmosphere. Language is unlikely to be a problem here, as the owner is quite happy chatting in both English and German, in addition to Turkish naturally. A definite bonus, as far as I was concerned, is that children are not allowed to stay.
I need to say, I totally agree to what was said so far.
Ein excellentes Hotel
Als Stammgast seit mehreren Jahren kann ich zum gelungenen Umbau nur gratulieren! Klein aber sehr fein. Mit einer sehr charmanten Hotelleitung!
Up until now Kas hotels have represented a difficult choice. If you wanted a "better" hotel you really had to stay on the peninsula but then you were away from this charming town. If you wanted to stay in town (a wise decision) then you had to accept that the overall quality of the hotels was simply less good. We've returned to Kas for years but I don't recall that we have ever particularly wanted to return to any of the hotels.
Hoem away from home
I was in this nice hotel last week. I found the hotel with a recommendation from my friend. After staying in the hotel for a week, I have seen that the view, service, quality, staff and everything that comes to mind in a hotel was perfect enough. Also the hotel was clean and shining. I can recommend everyone to visit this hotel if you make your way to Kas. It is food steps away from the center and yet still far away from noise. You wont regret it..
Been to this lovely hotel this year. Good price and even tho they have 11 rooms, they are better than a 5 star hotel in my opinion. Everything is renewed, staff is exteremely friendly and whats more.. If you do not stay there, at least go visit the hotel and you will understand what I mean. Hotel is located just in front of the Beach in Kucukcakil.
