While Icmeler might have dodged the bullet in terms of high-rises and tourist saturation which has descended on nearby Marmaris, it still boasts an enviable array of accommodation options.
Palm Garden enjoys an enviable location offering the best of both worlds. The large pool and picturesque mountains are the perfect backdrop to the 56 exquisitely-furnished rooms, which all come with their own private balcony or terrace.
Though it's a mere coincidence that the surname of the owner – Devamli – has a remarkable similarity to the word 'family', you'll find the name is apt. A family-run business for the best part of two decades, the staff at Devamli go out of their way to make you feel like their next of kin. The central location, on-site pool and proximity to the beach aren't too bad either.
Despite being located slap bang in the middle of Icmeler, the subdued atmosphere of these idyllic apartments will make you feel like you're a million miles away from all the action. This is especially true at the poolside, where the verdant and colourful gardens are complemented by the stone walls and wooden beams of the architecture, imparting a rustic and authentic feel to the place.
Conveniently located between the Old Town and New Town of Icmeler, Babadan Apartments are the ideal choice for families looking for an independent holiday experience. There's a kitchenette in each apartment, while the on-site restaurant serves up delicious food all day long. Meanwhile, the three pools will keep swimmers of all ages happy.
Opening its doors in May 2015, this excellent resort offers top-of-the-range facilities on the road between Icmeler and Marmaris, a prime location for those searching for Turkey holiday packages. As well as enjoying direct access to a private beach of shingle and sand, the complex also boasts four pools – including one for kids with five waterslides – several restaurants and bars, a gym, sauna and Turkish bath.
