Ali Bey Resort

The Ali Bey Resort really knows how to impress guests. It has its own beach, a waterpark and a choice of a la carte restaurants.

The pool scene at the hotel includes a huge, lagoon-style pool that is very inviting. For something more high energy, the waterpark has sections for adults and children.

On dry land, you’ll never be short of a place to work on your serve as 53 tennis courts are ready for you to play on. Kids can also be kept busy at the hotel-run clubs that are for anyone aged four to 17.

Overview of Side

A former playground of the Greeks and the Romans, Side’s a force to be reckoned with. As well as being packed with history, the resort also has two beaches, waterfront party spots and a world of dining options. With all this to consider, it’s no wonder Side’s been welcoming visitors on holidays to the Antalya region for thousands of years.

Whether you’d like to spend your days lounging on the beach or Instagramming the ruins around the city, it’s all possible when you use the Ali Bey Resort as your base.

Things to do in Side

The Ali Bey Resort is in a great location if you’re looking to explore Side. The centre of the city’s only five minutes away by bus, but most guests love to walk because the scenery is so beautiful.

Side has two beaches, conveniently called East Beach and West Beach. The latter is where families flock, as it’s packed to the rafters with activities. On East Beach, relaxation is the order of the day.

In the evening, the nightlife is noisy without being too boisterous. Most restaurants double as bars, so you won’t even have to leave your seat to enjoy your favourite tipple.

Packed with beautiful ruins, beaches for every mood and delicious cuisine, Side is a destination the whole family will fall in love with.

Resort Summary

The former playground of the Greeks and Romans, Side is a coastal resort of epic proportions. It’s also rumoured to be the holiday spot of history’s first power couple, Antony and Cleopatra. Found on a little peninsula on Turkey’s southern coast, this town is sandwiched between two scenic beaches and dotted with ancient ruins.

Nearby nature resorts keep things subdued while watersports on the coast up the energy. Days at the beach and Instagramming the crumbling columns of the Temple of Apollo are all good fun during cheap holidays to Turkey, but sundown is when Side really comes to life.
