Antalya’s glitziest resort, a Lara Beach holiday is dominated by Las Vegas-style hotels, all offering a wealth of facilities from luxury spas and fine-dining restaurants to pools with swim-up bars and private jetties for watersports. There’s plenty of historic sites, natural wonders and activities to throw yourself into too, all just a short drive away.
With a sprawling beachfront, you have a variety of scenic spots (snow-capped mountains can be seen from most of the beaches), quiet bays, and family-friendly sands to choose from in Lara Beach. Come evening, the hotels host big parties on their private patches.
The standard of food in Lara Beach’s all-inclusive hotels makes it well worth staying in of an evening. Every cuisine is ticked off from East Asian, American and Italian to good old British pub grub, plus little ones are more than catered for with mini meals made up of familiar foods. For an authentic taste of Turkey, head to Yoruk Tent, a casual restaurant set inside a traditional tent at Liberty Hotel. Diners are invited to feast at big picnic benches that look out on peaceful gardens. The menu comprises simple dishes like pide (Turkish pizza) and gozleme (savoury Turkish pancakes filled with spinach and feta). After, snooze off your meal in the hammocks outside.
Souvenir shopping is a short shuttle bus away at Sultan Bazaar. Look out for Turkish delight and golden honey, as well as cheap branded clothing and jewellery you’re welcome to haggle for. Many of the hotels also have shops with similar goods, which you will have to pay more for, but you can trust it’s genuine.
A Lara Beach holiday is perfect for those wanting to indulge in a spot of pampering – unwinding at an authentic hamman is a popular way to spend an afternoon. Not staying at a hotel with a spa? Simply pay for a day pass or individual treatments at the door.
If there’s only so much luxuriating you can take, you’re in a good position to explore the rest of Antalya – and taxis and tours are widely available and affordable. Visit ancient ruins on the side of a mountain in Termessos, and Lycian tombs of Myra in Demre. For a spot of nature, head to Olympos Coastal National Park.
