Perfect Paloma

The Paloma Orenda is everything you’d want for your perfect holiday to Turkey. You’ll find this stunning hotel on a laidback strip of Turkey’s southern coast, with a caramel-coloured beach on your doorstep. The Paloma Orenda is found on the outskirts of Side, which is about an hour from Antalya. There’s an untouched old town and crumbling ruins flanking the sandy beaches. Modern luxuries get a good look-in, too, with a chic harbour, waterfront restaurants and lively bars.



The centre of Side is only 6km from the hotel, so if you want to go exploring, there’s plenty of places closeby. In Side, you’ll find bars and restaurants, as well as a whole host of shops and markets. Manavgat is also close by to the hotel, and there’s some really cool excursions you can do here including booking a visit to the Manavgat Waterfalls.



Paloma Orenda is just over an hour away from the airport. As part of your holiday package with us, your coach transfer is included meaning you don’t have to shell out any more money to get yourself to the hotel. The coach is comfortable and will get you there as quickly and safely as possible. If you’re travelling with children and worried about a longer transfer, don’t worry! The coach has plenty of refreshments on board if you need, and there’s also restroom facilities too. 


Hot Hotel

Paloma Orenda has everything you need for a family break in the sun. The pool’s a rectangular number that’s decorated with submerged seats and sunbeds. There’s also a shallower pool for youngsters and a splash park that’s loaded with slides. If you’re a fan of being on the shore, you can flake out at the hotel’s private beach area, which includes free sunbeds. You can also hire a private cabana here! The hotel has direct access to the beach and offers a delivery service to your cabana from 10am to 6pm. You can order Champagne, fresh orange juice, fresh fruits, pastries and cakes as well as a range of alcoholic and soft drinks.



Activities wise, this place will certainly keep you busy. Arts and crafts sessions, cooking lessons and treasure hunts are on the cards in the kids’ club. Teens, meanwhile, have their own space with a special line-up of games and competitions. After dinner, you can chill out and watch a show. The Moscow State Circus and extreme sports performances are all on the agenda.



Adrenaline junkies will have plenty to try – surfing and catamaran sailing are on the agenda down at the beach. Back on dry land you can try your hand at archery, basketball, beach volleyball, football and tennis. 


Full Plates and Topped Up Glasses

The Paloma Buffet restaurant is the main eatery here and you can choose to dine indoors or al fresco. They serve up big breakfast buffets with fresh fruit, for lunch and dinner you’ll find a range of local and international dishes. There’s also an additional three restaurants here which are a la carte spots, and two are included in your all inclusive package. 



At Wabi Sabi a la carte restaurant, you’ll find dishes from Japan, China and Asia. Wabi Sabi is open on set days of the week. And you’ll need to make your reservation through Paloma App before 3pm on the same day. The Mediterranean a la carte serves up seafood and Turkish mezze. You’ll need to make your reservation for this restaurant too, using the Paloma App. Curio BBQ à la carte restaurant offers a medley of meats – this spot comes at an extra charge.
