Set in the resort town of Side on Turkey’s Antalya coast, Crystal Sunrise Queen Luxury Resort Spa is the perfect establishment for a relaxing, sun-soaked getaway. This 5-star beachfront hotel has swimming pools, a spa centre, free WiFi and several eateries – as well as plenty to keep the kids busy.
A stay at Crystal Sunrise comes with a long list of activities to check off. During the day you can swim in one of four pools, play tennis in one of the hotel’s eight courts, book into the spa for a beauty treatment, or simply stretch out on a sun lounger with a cold drink in your hand. For travellers visiting with their children, there’s a kids' club, a kids' pool, waterslides and a child-friendly buffet to keep your little ones smiling throughout the day. Come nightfall, the grown-ups can dine in style at one of the resort’s five restaurants, and party the night away at the on-site bars and nightclub. And if you need a little time to yourself, you can always retreat to your air-conditioned, ensuite room, or one of the hotel’s comfortable lounges. Last but by no means least, there’s the hotel’s private beach, which is just 50 metres away.
If you do manage to tear yourself away, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in the local area. The historic centre of Side can be reached in under 10 minutes by car; here you can wander the charming back streets of this former fishing village, picking up souvenirs, relaxing by the picturesque harbour, and exploring landmarks like Apollo’s Temple.
