CLC Kusadasi Golf & Spa - Kusadasi
The Kusadasi Golf & Spa (in Kusadasi) is an ideal place to stay if you want scenic views, swimming pool galore and a meditative round of golf.

The resort has 11 pools across the site, private access to the beach and an 18-hole golf course and clubhouse. Although there's a pool with waterslides, the CLC Kusadasi is probably more suited to couples.
Titanic Beach Lara - Antalya
The Titanic Beach Lara is a unique Turkish hotel. Designed after the legendary ship, the 5* hotel towers over the resort (in Lara, Antalya), and from a distance, you'd be forgiven for mistaking it for a real ship in the sea.
