Kaplumbağa Hotel is the achievement of Ms. Nilüfer who, besides her good hospitality, is also a good painter. It is situated in a small fishing town in the fresh waters of the Gökova Gulf at the end of the alluvial plain where the ruins of the ancient town of Ceramos are spread around, warmed by the Mediterranean sun, in the southern outskirts of the mountains covered with pine trees. The hotel has 8 bright rooms with all comforts, two of which are equipped for the handicapped, all sunlit and which all have their special styles decorated with the paintings by the hotel owner.
The day starts with nightingale songs and at sunset the fresh fish from Gökova are wonderful to taste in the cool pine forests. You can reach the altitude for sky diving on the summit of the Kocadağ Mountain with vehicles provided by the hotel and watch Ören and Gökova from the bluest sky. Also you can participate in the famous blue voyage of the Gökova gulf.
