Brexit and how it affects your travel

2017 - for those of you already registered for summer 2017 and beyond please  be aware that the venue may increase their costs to us for next season due to exchange rate changes and if this happens we will, sadly, have to pass the increase on to you. We would expect the increases to be minimal.

Some prices have risen due to exchange rates - sorry!

    A tranquil hotel linked with the village by the Hotel's river boat service. Accommodation is provided in 26 air conditioned rooms linked by the central tower. The entire region is designated as a conservation area. An area of outstanding natural beauty


This family-run guest house is a real jewel and is situated in a secluded location near to the Dalyan Delta in the Mediterranean region of South West Turkey.


A frequent boat service takes guests across the river to the hotel thus preserving its tranquillity.


Boats are readily available on the gently flowing Dalyan River and provide an opportunity to head downstream to Iztuzu turtle beach through the labyrinth of channels alongside the reed beds of the Dalyan Delta or upstream to the renowned Thermal Baths and Lake Köycegiz - or just to wander through Dalyan enjoying the cafe culture and the views across the river.


This entire region is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a paradise for ramblers with endless treks winding along the river banks, through the reed beds and up into the surrounding pine covered slopes.



The Hotel provides a complementary minibus and riverboat service for guests wishing to visit Dalyan Village.


The 10 minute trip is scheduled at frequent intervals throughout the day.


The ambiance of this hotel is well suited to the yoga classes.  


Morning yoga takes place in the indoor air-conditioned yoga shala.

Afternoon yoga can also take place here, or outside in the upstairs area with its wonderful views, depending on the requirements of the group   


There will be two yoga classes a day, the first before breafast and a later afternoon class prior to dinner.


Mid holiday there is one day with no yoga when you can go further afield on an excursion, take the famous 12 Islands Boat Trip or just relax by the pool. 



Accommodation is provided in comfortable en-suite rooms linked by the central tower.  Rooms are large and have a small lounge area - see picture. The rooms overlook the lush landscaped gardens and swimming pool,  with uninterrupted views of the surrounding unspoilt countryside.

The tranquil swimming pool and surrounding area envelops guests with peace and quiet.  Relax on the sunloungers and enjoy the sunshine.




Food - Buffet breakfast and dinner are served in the Garden Restaurant.  A varied and plentiful menu is offered, consisting of local dishes and traditional Turkish cuisine. A light a la carte lunchtime menu is also available.

Ingredients are sourced daily and locally wherever possible and the dinner menu is supplemented by the daily harvest of home grown vegetables from the hotel vegetable garden.




Includes - Accommodation, breakfast, dinner and yoga

Not Included - Flights, insurance, transfers, treatments, lunch and snacks, all bottled water, teas and coffee.


Flights - There are both chartered and scheduled flights to Dalaman airport, Free Spirit are very happy to help you search the internet for flights.

It is usually cheaper to book your flight as early as possible - the price generally increases as the plane fills.


Transfers - Your transfer can be organised for you. The transfer is 20 minutes by taxi to the river. From here you will be ferried across and taken the short remainder of the journey by the hotel car, to the hotel. Total journey time is about 40 minutes.

Hello I just wanted to say thank you for a week in paradise
Sultans palas in dalyan turkey is an idyllic setting
Combined with meeting new friends and yoga with Romana Balle
Just what was needed

Steve  - September 2015


We just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely holiday we had at the Sultan Palas Hotel in Dalyan recently. It really is a special place; the rooms very clean and comfortable, the beautiful pool and gardens, the friendly, helpful and discreet staff and the fresh food including wonderful mezes. As friends of Lorna's we knew the yoga would be brilliant and it was so lovely do do it in such tranquil surroundings.

Debbie Chandler and Lynn Dove-Dixon - May 2015


Just had to give you some feedback and please feel free to post this on your site .... my sister and I had the most fantastic week doing yoga with Niamh. She is so warm hearted and her teaching is great. We had an amazing time; connecting with a small group of women - doing yoga, swimming, sunbathing and laughing together an awful lot! Friendships made that we think will be maintained. Oh and the venue was beautiful too. A real gem - the gardens and pool at Sultans Palas make it just perfect.

Lyn & Ann Williams - June 2015


Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed my trip to Dalyan! The hotel was a little paradise and the staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. And the yoga sessions with Edith were wonderfully relaxing, just what I needed!

Kind regards  Priska - May 2016
