sensatori resort, fethiye, turkey


























Last month I spent a week in Turkey with my better half at the Sensatori resort in Fethiye.

This was my third trip to Turkey and my second time returning to the Mugla province which is an amazing area of Turkey. I chose to return to this area as I knew it had a lot to offer and I hadn't been since I had visited last with my family. We wanted to stay somewhere all inclusive as a treat and an opportunity for total relaxation, but I'm so funny about food and dreaded the idea of having to stay somewhere for a week and eat repetitive, boring and average food so this was one of the reasons we wanted to pay more to stay in a nice place and chose a Sensatori resort as they are known for their high standards.

The resort didn't disappoint. Sensatori resorts are exclusive to Thomson so it was easy to book this holiday. Usually I wouldn't opt for a package holiday but in this instance we really wanted high quality, fuss free relaxation which is what we got. The staff at the resort were amazingly helpful and went out of their way to assist you in anything you needed. 

You can see from the photos that the resort was amazing, newly built in May, everything was modern and luxurious. I spent 99.9999% of my time in the adult zone as my fear of all things small and noisy kept me away from the family areas but this was done so nicely! The adult pool was large and quiet with a swim up bar serving perfect strawberry daiquiris you could sip under the sun in the pool.

Beaches aren't Turkeys thing so the beach was average but the coastline was beautiful. Fethiye is set in a beautifully green area surrounded by trees which provide a beautiful relaxing backdrop. 

If you were to take a trip to Fethiye I would recommend the Sensatori resort with its five or so restaurants you are always introduced to delicious new food and lots of options with five star service. The resort itself is about twenty minutes outside of Fethiye's centre but this is easily accessible by Dolmush or taxi. I would recommend taking the Dolmush to Fethiye's markets on the Tuesday to experience Turkeys wonderful food market. 

We also opted for a Canoeing day trip which took us down a river through a national park being opening out on to Patara beach which is one of the longest beaches in the Mediterranean. The beach was empty and so relaxing. It was such an enjoyable day to canoe down the peaceful river with a group of lovely people and competent and friendly tour guides.

On some of the remaining days of the holiday we hired a beach cabana at the hotel which was inexpensive and beautiful which you can just tell by the photos. The service for the day was second to none and we were always with a drink in hand and had our lunch brought to us as well as cold towels throughout the day to help us cool down. The Spa in the hotel was second to none, its interiors were simply gorgeous, I just wish I could of photographed them but I was too busy enjoying a traditional turkish bath and deep tissue massage which was provided by friendly and talented therapists. 

There is so much to be said about Turkey and its beauty. I think people often overlook it as a holiday destination but the locals, the food and the backdrop all make for a wonderful holiday.
