Currently visiting Turkey and whilst in Istanbul decided to go to a health spa resort just outside of Istanbul with hot and cold natural spring waters. So my parents, teenage son and I set off on a 2-day adventure. The ferry boat from Yeni Kapi to Yalova took about 90’ and cost 140TL one way for the 4 of us (£1=7.06TL on 16/7/2019). We took a taxi from Yalova for 65TL but there are minibuses to the hotel and back for a few liras each.
We stayed in the apart section as the hotel was full. 3 bedroom spacious flat -1 double, 1 twin, 1 single and a foldaway bed with spacious living room, ready to use kitchen, 1WC and 1 large bathroom with shower and jacuzzi plus breakfast was 550TL per night incl breakfast. Rooms are cleaned daily - same service as hotel.The aparts can have upto 5 people. Excellent value. The swimming pools, sauna and all facilities are free. There are separate special waters for foot problems, eyes, stomach problems.Had a brilliant exfoliation for 30TL and massages are 50TL. You can eat lunch and dinner at the hotel for about 40TL per person, prepare own food in your flat or there are a couple of restaurants at the resort. Beautiful walks/runs in the pine forest, there’s a cinema, cafe, and all facilities are open 365 days of the year including the outdoor hot spring pool! Did I say that the personnel are very polite and give service with a smile? There are a few treadmills, bikes and a pool table.
Suitable for large groups and couples, families. The ferry boats have cafe Nero on board- beautiful comfortable seats- similar to a departure lounge.
We had a brilliant couple of days and felt rested- I wish we could have stayed longer. Would love to go there in the winter when it’s covered in snow.
the hotel is a health resort with a spectacular surroundings. rooms have a great view. rooms are little outdated, small, but relatively clean. sound isolation between rooms is bad. hot spring feeds number of turkish baths around and a large outdoor pool next to the hotel. we booked the half board package (they also offer bed+breakfast package). breakfast and dinner was fair. There are also places to eat around.
This place was beautiful such a green jungle that let you breathe oxygen and in evening you can swimming in a nice sprig water pool with bird sounds in top.
Also some local shop with fresh grilled beef and traditional Turkish food after swimming will complete the good day in nature
I went there in order to visit the water sulfur baths, this is a water is very natural, very excellent for the treatment of the body and bones .. There is also a wonderful advantage in this water is very cold and also there is very hot water .. Swimming pool is also available in addition to the private baths .. The place is clean but not recommended by the time of tourism because of the. It is highly recommended and especially for the elderly.
The location of thermal springs is wonderful. It is surrounded by greeny hills with aged trees, fresh air and beautiful landscapes. Average price for hammam is 10$ per person per hour. We took couple's room with my husband, it has no swimming pool but 100% privacy. There are also available female/male sections with pool.
