Grenadine Lodge Yoga Hotel, Dalyan, Turkey from £435

August 3rd - 10th 2015


 

 

Come & join Barbara for a beautiful  Sivananda week at Grenadine Lodge Yoga Hotel in Daylan, Turkey!  

 

The retreat takes place in Dalyan, a village situated on the small river that joins the lake to the sea. This small yoga hotel is in the conservation area between the village and the beach.  The hotel is very charming,  with two yoga shalas and a swimming pool with a small waterfall and jacuzzi.  There is a Turkish tree house where students can relax or meditate and a small bar beside the pool which also serves snacks. 

 

The hotel has 16 rooms, a swimming pool, bar and resturant. 

All the rooms have air conditioning and en-suite facilities complete with a hair-dryer on the wall.

Downstairs Suites: downstairs rooms have a separate bedroom at the rear, en-suite facilities and air conditioning.

Upstairs Rooms : the airy upstairs rooms are 'attic style' with sloping ceilings at one end.

 

Each has a small outdoor space with limited views, en-suite facilities and full air conditioning.  Each also has a small lounge and a third bed can be placed here if groups of students wish to share to further reduce the cost. 

 Outside each room is a wooden deck with a wooden table and two chairs.

 

Small buses stop outside hotel entrance every half hour taking you on the ten minute picturesque route to the beach. You can also reach Iztutu beach by taking one of the many riverboats from the village.  Iztutu beach is huge, very beautiful and within the national park. There are no buildings other than a cafe at each end with changing huts and sunbeds-  it  is a conservation area with extremely strict access rules to protect the turtles which nest there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Besides visiting the beach we can also arrange a variety of trips. There are also hot springs, mud baths and a huge lake to explore - its a very beautiful region.

 

Yoga takes place twice daily in one of the two yoga shalas.  The open yoga shala overlooks the pomegranite field and has space for up to 25 yoga mats.  Our second yoga shala is enclosed on all sides by bamboo screening.  The shade provided by the bamboo screening in both yoga shalas allows the air to circulate whilst keeping out the heat of the sun.

     

There is one day mid holiday with no yoga so we may venture further afield on excursions such as the 12 Island Boat Trip, or just spend the day relaxing by the pool.  Massages will be available throughout the week.

 

There is a small hotel restaurant and daily breakfast plus 5 evening meals are included in the cost of the holiday - extra evening meals are available on-site if you wish, however local restaurants are terrific and we do recommend you try them.

 

 

A large Turkish breakfast will be served after the morning yoga class and an evening meal on the arrival night and 4 other evenings. If the group wishes to eat more meals on site this is easily arranged for a small extra fee.  A lunch menu is available.

Food will be vegetarian unless we request otherwise - vegetables are grown as much as possible in the hotel's vegetable field.

Fish is readily available in this area, you can request one of the meals to include a fish option.
