The Oliviera Resort is located on Kalem Island in Dikilli in Izmir, Turkey. To get there you have to drive down a winding country road where you leave your car and catch a small boat over the bay to the Island, which just adds to the whole experience…


Once you arrive on the island, you’ll be greeted with warm smiles and hello’s. The hotel grounds are amazing, spacious and peaceful, you really feel at one with nature, especially as there are only 39 rooms so it never feels busy. On one side of the island is the hotel’s beach (which is the best bit of the hotel) The water in that area is fantastic, crystal clear and one of the most beautiful Turquoise coloured seas I have seen in Turkey. There are sunbeds, hammocks or cabanas where you can chill out and the spa is also located there if you want a relaxing massage from one of the balinese girls….


We swam all day and took late afternoon naps in the cabana before heading to a dinner of fresh fish which we ate while watching the sunset over the neighbouring island, Garip Island. It was lovely and lazy, just the way I like it. They offer watersports and diving if you prefer to be more active but that’s about it, the island really is meant for you to chill out, relax and cleanse your soul before going back to the reality of every day life.
