The Hilton Dalaman Golf Resort & Spa, Turkey


The newly opened Hilton Dalaman Golf Resort & Spa, on Turkey's Dalaman coast, is the first Hilton Worldwide Resort in Turkey


The hotel is located at the mouth of the Dalaman River where it flows into the Mediterranean, on its own kilometre-long private sandy beach, with views of mountains and sea and a striking setting. 


Situated 15 minutes from Dalaman Airport, the hotel is also close to many natural attractions, including Dalyan, with its hot springs and mud pools; Olu Deniz, one of the most scenic beaches in Turkey; and Iztuzu Beach, a protected nesting site for loggerhead turtles. Visitors can also explore the ancient ruins at Pisilis and the nearby village of Sarigerme.


The Hilton Dalaman Golf & Spa Resort is committed to protecting the environment and also supports the Just a Drop charity, which carries out health and sanitation programmes, builds wells, and engages in disaster relief to help disadvantaged communities around the world get access to clean water.
