St Nicholas Park Hotel
Set in a pine forest, with spectacular views over the sea, St. Nicholas Park Hotel is great for families and couples alike. There are three pools to choose from, a pool bar, two restaurants, along with a stunning panoramic bar ideal for a tranquil evening away from it all. There are sports and activities on offer too, along with a handy kids’ club. Despite its secluded setting, it’s still only a short drive from the Blue Lagoon beach, and it’s only slightly further to the centre of town, where you’ll find all the bars and eateries. Idyllic.
Overview of Hisaronu
Increasingly a favourite for people who love holidays to Turkey, Hisaronu has transformed itself from a quaint village into a vibrant, picturesque retreat. The secluded, much-photographed Blue Lagoon is a gem, and it’s less than a 10-minute ride away from the St. Nicholas Park Hotel, in Olu Deniz. The town itself is cute and charming, and the Old Quarter has lots of local shops offering jewellery, gold and leather, with a myriad of restaurants and bars – perfect for a quiet drink taking in the sunset. Come nightfall, this place reveals its wild side, coming alive with dancing, drag acts and karaoke!
Things to do in Hisaronu
If you’re looking for something to do, there’s always the Blue Lagoon, with its perfect white sands and stunning vistas – well worth it. If you fancy taking in some culture, the ghost village of Kayakoy, which was abandoned in a population exchange with Greece, is just a 10-minute bus ride from the St. Nicholas Park Hotel. Meanwhile, in town, bars and clubs keep the party going well into the night, and many of the restaurants on the main street cater for the British holidaymaker looking for some home comforts. For a full-on street bash, there’s the Hisaronu Carnival, part of Olu Deniz’s cultural festival, complete with floats, pop singers and folk dancers. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find this gorgeous part of Turkey has plenty to offer. There’s culture, jaw-dropping natural landscapes, great beaches, and epic nightlife. Take it easy, party hard…it’s up to you. It’s all here when you want it, and you’ll definitely want to come back.
