Liberty Lykia, a Turkish Delight

Nestled between the shimmering azure waters of the Mediterranean and the lush, pine-clad hills of southwestern Turkey, Dalaman is a hidden gem that sparkles with unspoiled beauty. Imagine exploring ancient ruins that whisper secrets of ancient civilizations, then cooling off with a swim in crystal-clear lagoons. The air is sweet with the scent of citrus groves and wildflowers, while the distant sound of waves lapping at pristine beaches creates a soundtrack on par with the best Spotify Chill playlists.

Welcome to Liberty Lykia Adults Only

Located in the breathtaking Ölüdeniz, just an hour’s drive from Dalaman Airport, Liberty Lykia Adults Only is a true marvel. Ölüdeniz became an official tourist destination in 1967 when its first hotel opened on Belcekiz Beach. Since then, tourism has flourished, transforming the area into a vibrant hub with dozens of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops, making it a go-to destination for those wanting to soak in the beauty of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast.

A Dreamy Escape

Liberty Lykia Adults Only is the star of the show among these hotels. Part of the expansive Liberty Hotels & Resort brand in Turkey, this adults-only retreat redefines luxury. Forget everything you thought you knew about all-inclusive resorts – Liberty Lykia will surpass even your wildest expectations, making you want to book a return trip by the second day. The stunning beachside location, airy rooms, impressive facilities, and fabulous restaurants are noteworthy, but the real standout here is the service. Think charismatic bartenders, knowledgeable chefs, fantastic beauty therapists, and even waiters on rollerblades, ensuring no cocktail glass goes empty.

The Rooms

The accommodation at Liberty Lykia is peaceful, spacious and contemporary. The neutral tones are brightened by different shades of blue, a daily reminder of how close to the ocean you are. The rooms and suites offer views of the magnificent Babadag or the clear Mediterranean. There are six types of rooms, from Deluxe Sea View to Deluxe Suite with a garden view. For the ultimate indulgence, choose a suite with a private Jacuzzi… well worth it. All rooms feature daily restocked, complimentary minibars, wonderfully comfortable beds, balconies, and air conditioning – essential during the summer months. The bathrooms are equally impressive with large rain showers, fluffy robes, and every toiletry imaginable.

Beach and Pools

Guests can enjoy a variety of outdoor, indoor, heated, or adult-only pools. There’s the Silence Pool for those seeking a quiet area – perfect for that “OOO” afternoon nap – the Sarpedon Infinity Pool, or the Main Adults Only Pool, complete with two waterslides for those of us who refuse to grow up. The beach is just a stone’s throw away, offering an array of watersports or breezy, shaded cabanas for those who prefer to stay horizontal. Top tip: take a stroll towards the main Liberty Lykia beach for an Insta-worthy pic of the giant swing in the shallow waves.

Drinking and Dining

Liberty Lykia boasts nine (yes, really) a la carte restaurants, four open buffets, and more bars than you can shake a swizzle stick at. Highlights include the Sarpedon Fish Restaurant, serving the Mediterranean’s freshest seafood in a gorgeous seaside setting, the Pinara Turkish Restaurant – complete with belly dancers, traditional musicians, and the best baklava on earth – and the glamorous Olympos Teppanyaki Restaurant. In the mood for sushi? They’ve got that too.

Bars are aplenty, ensuring guests are well-watered at all times. The Trebanna Beach Bar is a hidden paradise that serves a wide range of cocktails (the bartenders are heavy-handed, in the best way), while Patara Beach Bar sits right by the sea, ready to pop that first bottle of rosé at noon. It’s holiday, after all. All tanned out? Head to Kyra Wine House, a cool respite from the heat, to sample an exquisite collection of premier vintage wines.

Spa, Wellbeing, and Activities

The adults-only spa seamlessly blends age-old traditions with modern technology to offer a range of treatments. The options are plentiful, from the foam-laden rituals of the Turkish bath, sea-view saunas, or traditional massages infused with exotic herbs. If she’s available, ask for the incredible Evi. Her hands can perform magic.

For those who prefer staying active on holiday, there’s a fully equipped gym with yoga and Pilates classes, Latin dance lessons, and even sea-facing step classes. There are also 19 tennis courts, archery, and of course, water aerobics.

Adrenalin junkies rejoice because the parasailing is unparalleled at Liberty Lykia, as is canoeing, water and jet skiing. For something to write home about, why not try your hand at flyboarding, a thrilling sport combining jet skiing, wakeboarding, and snowboarding elements. It is exhilarating, allowing you to fly up to 45 feet in the air, perform flips and even dive into the water like a human dolphin. 

Summer 2024 Awaits

As summer 2024 gets into full swing, there truly is no better way to replenish those vitamin D levels than a visit to Liberty Lykia Adults Only. Offering a 5-star holiday experience complete with exquisite food, endless cocktails, and superstar staff, it will add a sprinkle of magic to your summer.
