HONEYMOON Med for Love 3300 views
Couples in search of uber-cool romance, sunshine and blue seas should check out the fabulous Hillside Su on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey.
One of the most recent additions to the gorgeous strech of coast just outside the city of Antalya, is the ultra-minimalist resort of Hillside Su. Backed by the stunning Taurus mountains, the resort is icing-white perfect, inside and out, with clever lighting adding an ambient glow, vast mirrors and tiny splashes of colour such as the goldfish in each of the rooms.
With an elegant long pool at the heart of the resort, surrounded by white bed loungers, there is also an outdoor cinema, lawns with painting workshops and a private beach, complete with a beach bar and eatery. Served by smiling white-uniformed staff, the atmosphere is far from formal: it has to be one of the hippest locations on the Med with relaxation, fun and lounging in style being top priorities.
At the same time as being a haven of chill-out, you'll find plenty going on. Beach parties are held once a week, a fab range of water sports are available on the beach and there are plenty of daily activities from learning to mix cocktails to the total well-being experience offered in the zen surroundings of the spa. You'll love the food too, whether you go for a seafood dinner for two on the roof terrace, sushi from the everso-long bar in the lobby or a more bistrot atmosphere in Kirmizi, the main restaurant. The buffet breakfast is a lavish spread of all things good, including traditional Turkish fare such as white cheese, olives and eggs.
Rooms start at £96 for a double room half board - or check out the romantic luxury packages. For more details go to Hillsidesu.com or call 00 90 242 249 0700.
