Kahramana Beach Resort
Attractive property benefiting from both a quiet and activity beach area and is surrounded by plant laden gardens. There is some walking distance between the facilities but otherwise suited to adult groups and families with older children.
The 2 lane drive from the gatehouse passes the Kahramana Garden Resort and continues across desert terrain uphill and onto the cobbled approach to the single-storey main reception building. From the front, this is a single-storey rectangular block with a pale terracotta facade. A large arch topped window stands either side of the glass front entrance reached by a few wide steps.
Property type: Hotel

The small lobby bar has ultra-modern plastic seating and offers a service to the adjacent terrace which has bistro-style tables and chairs.
A stairway leads down into the garden where twenty 2-storey clusters of rooms have a stone clad exterior draped with a variety of hanging plants. Paths lead through the verdant gardens over ridges crossed by arched walkways.
In addition to the dining venue on the ground-floor below reception, the main restaurant is situated in a circular building deeper into the resort. With views across the pool terrace and indoor and outdoor seating, it adjoins the fitness room.
