1st April- 7th April 2017
Hey guys! So I’ve recently visited 5 cities in 5 days in Turkey, Mugla and had the best time ever! I was literally so blown away by how different my perspective of Turkey was, it is such a beautiful country with the best views, sceneries and fun things to do!
I’ve organised my trip below into visual summaries of places, beautiful sceneries my favourite hotels and then outfits from Day 1-5 including as many of the links as I can for you guys <3
So here’s the low down…..
Before flying out
So before flying out we stayed at the Radisson Blu at Stansted airport, can we please take a minute to appreciate the breakfast here? There is Salmon my favourite ever! It was such a convenient stay being a 2 min walk to the departures at the airport and 2 minutes away from their valet carpark. I hardly walked, yay winning!
Day 1 -Tuesday
Orka SunLife Hotel in Fethiye
It was absolutely beautiful here, the rooms were massive overlooking the city and starlit night skies. So serene. Restaurant, spa, yoga in the morning and a buffet breakfast. Of course, I had to take a picture by the basketball court they had, cause who am I kidding? I’m not really going to play basketball after being full from that buffet! We later went onto see people Paragliding at Babadag Mountains (here) it was breathtaking so high up, we also enjoyed a hearty lunch at the top of the mountains! Here you can oversee the Blue Lagoon below.
Overlooking the whole of Marmaris below, with the sun rays reflecting of the perfectly arranged bright white houses and yachts.

Day 2- Weds
Dalyan Resort & Spa hotel
Staying only at one place a night, this was one of the hardest to leave, the countless flowers brought life and delicacy with the touch of nature and zen that surrounds the hotel. There is a boat ride that departs from the hotel’s river, where you can see an ancient carved out cave which was once part of a historical love story. The boat ride ends at Turtle Beach if you fancy some sand! The palm trees and straw huts made me feel like I was in Vietnam. Again with a buffet breakfast to greet you in the morning after a relaxing deep sleep in my oversized bed was a perfect start to my day.

Day 3 -Thurs
Orka Sentido Lotus Beach Hotel
This hotel has everything, a beach below, waterslides, mountains as backdrops with your own little buggy to escort you around the hotel. Above is the rooftop where we enjoyed the view with a chilled cocktail to cool us down. Below is a picture of me chilling by the lifeguard hut as if I’m about to save someone, nope just me trying to get a picture for the gram!

Later on we went to Girlssand Beach also very picturesque! Here you can grab a bite to eat, chill in the shade under one of the palm trees or catch a tan in the sun!

Day 4- Friday
Demircioglu Park Hotel
This hotel was such a comfortable stay, it felt most like home at this one, maybe the interior and style was more me but I had such a beautiful stay from the quiltted pink suede chairs at breakfast and the luxurious chandeliers by the lobby, the food and shopping close by, I didnt want to leave! We also visited a food market early on in the morning just as if were the locals, in which I took a minute out to crouch down for the picture below.

Day 5- Saturday
Rixos Hotel -Bodrum
This hotel was hands down my number one, I want to come back just to explore the hotel for a week! Can you see the little island down below? They transport you there with one of their little buggy carts! The same for dinner and the hotels live performances, shisha if you fancy. I swear I could just watch the sunrise and the sunset on my bedroom balcony and feel complete, this place was grand from the moment you walk in with Egyptian interior and bedroom decor.

And peace out!
