A small hotel with a big heart, the Hera is set in large, well-tended grounds and backed by lush mountain slopes. A relaxed and unassuming place, its friendly staff and spacious rooms make it something of a hidden delight.
Newly built around a large, inviting pool with a swim up bar, the Hera is an intimate place to stay with good facilities and attentive staff.
The hotel is set in a stunning location, reached down a thickly forested valley and just 100 metres from the low-key beach at Çirali.
Tucked away at the quieter end of the beach, the hotel has a good restaurant in a large villa by the pool and serves excellent Turkish and Mediterranean favourites as well as a delicious afternoon tea.
One of the last remaining Mediterranean nesting sites for loggerhead turtles, Çirali is a mellow village offering stunning views of Mount Olympos and plenty of opportunities for walking, hiking, fishing and canoeing. The hotel is within walking distance of the ancient ruins of Lycian Olympos and, in a more strenuous hike up the mountains, the enigmatic flames of Chimaera.
Hera's 14 spacious wooden bungalows are spread out across the manicured gardens and each has its own private terrace. Simple but comfortable, they have uncluttered, modern interiors with wood panelled walls, marble bathrooms and subtle floral bedspreads and curtains.
