Combining a truly chilled-out atmosphere with stunning natural surroundings, The Olive Garden at Kabak nestles among the spectacular scenery of the Turquoise Coast and is the epitome of a relaxing getaway.
Owner Fatih and his team pride themselves on offering a warm welcome and first-class service to every visitor and look forward to extending their own special brand of Turkish hospitality to friends old and new this summer.
Time to relax
The jewel in The Olive Garden’s crown is the stunning infinity pool, with imposing mountain peaks behind and views over Kabak Bay. Staring at the Mediterranean ahead, you feel as though you’re floating on the edge of the world.
Fatih has invested in a number of additional sunbeds this year, while there are also plenty of köşks dotted around, complete with comfortable cushions. We defy you not to fall asleep as you relax in the sunshine!
Choose your spot either pool-side or in the beautiful natural gardens or, alternatively, unwind under a shady parasol in the bar and restaurant as you drink in the beauty around you.
Food and drink
Dining at The Olive Garden is a delight, with every meal freshly-prepared using the finest local ingredients.
Linger over a Turkish breakfast – its array of tempting morsels will leave you replete for the rest of the day – or choose from a menu that features seafood, traditional Turkish dishes, lighter bites such as salads and wraps, and full meals including steaks and pasta. Oh, and don’t forget to leave room for dessert…
There’s also a fully-stocked bar with a superb range of drinks including fresh fruit juices, imported spirits, a good selection of wines and beers, and cocktails.
Whether it’s lunch with friends or a romantic sunset dinner with your other half, there’ll be something to suit your taste – and it will be delicious!
Stay a little longer
If you decide that a day – or an evening – simply isn’t long enough, enjoy an overnight stay or short break in one of The Olive Garden’s environmentally-friendly wooden bungalows. You’ll find a comfortable bed with en-suite facilities and air-conditioning, and a balcony so you can make the most of those stunning vistas. (Subject to availability – visit www.olivegardenkabak.com for more information.)
By car – take the coast road out of Ölüdeniz and keep going, enjoying breath-taking views over Butterfly Valley and the surrounding area on the way. You’ll pass through Faralya into Kabak, where the Olive Garden is signposted off the main road. There is a private car park.
By dolmuş – make sure to catch one with ‘Faralya’ displayed on the front; they run from the large mosque in Fethiye through to Ovacık, Hisarönü and Ölüdeniz, before continuing along the coast road. You’ll need to get off shortly before the final terminus – just ask the driver to stop – and walk down the hill to The Olive Garden.
A pick-up/drop-off service is also available for customers visiting The Olive Garden for sunset dining. If you are a group of 8-11 people and would like to take advantage of this service, please call The Olive garden for further information or to make a booking.
Do I need to book?
While not essential, it’s always a good idea to call ahead and check how busy it is if you’re planning to spend the day or dine at The Olive Garden. Bungalows are subject to availability so we’d recommend an advance reservation if you definitely want to stay.
