Luxury Turkey Holidays

Beaches and bazaars

Turkey transports you to a world where east meets west, effortlessly combining the old and the new. Explore a world of modern shopping malls and boutique accommodation, next to ancient ruins, Roman forts, Ottoman mosques and traditional bazaars. There is something for all types of holidaymaker, with families enjoying precious time together on glorious golden beaches, couples discovering romantic hillside hamlets and strolls through the shady pine forests. Adventurers can choose from diving along the Aegean Coast or uncovering the mystery of the cave towns of Cappadocia. 

Head to Belek on the Turkish Riviera, and the crème de la crème on Turkey’s Mediterranean Coast, thanks to its magnificent hotels and bars along the 16 kilometre sand and shingle beach. Fairway fans will be spoilt for choice with eight championship golf courses to choose from.

Luxury holidays in Turkey

Holidays in Turkey are rich in history and culture. Bodrum is a cosmopolitan resort situated between azure blue bays and crowned with a medieval Crusader Castle. Take a Gulet cruise around the picturesque harbour and admire the historic landmarks on the hillside. Other exciting excursions into Turkey’s fascinating history include a visit to Ephesus, Troy and the Temple of Apollo. There is also an array of Turkish cuisine to tantalise your taste buds including Kofte and Tandir meat dishes, as well as sweet apple tea.

Wherever you choose to stay in Turkey, at Sovereign we offer a fine collection of accommodation hand picked by our Trusted Advisers. The Marmara Bodrum is a stunning choice, offering unrivalled views of the Aegean Coast from its luxury hilltop sanctuary. If you are staying on the Mediterranean Coast, the Gloria Serenity Resort in Belek offers something for the whole family with private beach, golf courses and a beautiful Serenity Spa. For those based on the Turquoise Coast, the Dionysos Hotel in Kumlubuk is a unique resort perched on a cliff side and designed like a classic Dalaman village.

Destinations in Turkey
Aegean Coast
The pine-topped peninsulas and swooping sandy bays of the Aegean Coast curve around Turkey’s south-west coast, practically a stone’s throw away from the Greek Islands.
Mediterranean Coast
The Mediterranean Coast swoops along the Gulf of Antalya, where you’ll find a coastline chock-full of impossibly luxurious beachside hotels and world-class golf resorts.
 
Turquoise Coast
The Turquoise Coast stars some of the most photo-ready places in Turkey, from the Blue Lagoon to Fethiye’s sun-bleached beaches. Of course, it’s all framed by luminous blue waters.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Turkey is approximately 4 hours.

When to go

There are no two ways about it – Turkey is hot. Summers top 30°C, with an average of 12 hours of sunshine a day and virtually no rain. The coast is cooled by sea breezes, which are particularly welcome in the mid-summer months. Spring and autumn are good times to go, averaging a thoroughly beach-ready mid-20s with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

Visa Information

A visa is required to enter Turkey and must be purchased prior to travel through www.evisa.gov.tr/en/. The E-visa can be applied for up to 3 months in advance of your travel date. Please ensure this is applied for prior to travel, as it is no longer possible to apply for a visa on arrival at any Turkish Airport. For more information please visit www.gov.ul/foreign-travel-advice/turkey/entry-requirements. 

Tipping

In restaurants in Turkey it’s common to leave 10-15% as a tip, unless service charge is included – make sure you check your bill carefully. Round up the fare when paying your taxi driver, although it’s not necessary to tip a dolmus driver. In the very popular Turkish baths, you should tip the masseuse between 10-20%.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Turkey is Turkish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
