Sometimes there is nothing better than to pander to the senses and we have come up with five ways to achieve total indulgence from morning ‘til night! Okay, you will need a car, preferably with a chauffeur, to fit this all into one day but these are, without doubt, the ultimate experiences when it comes to spoiling yourself in Fethiye. Of course, you could manage it all in a lower gear and even go around by bus (dolmuş) and spread your treats over a week, or perhaps cherry pick according to what takes your fancy! Aren’t you the lucky one? The choice is yours…

Gold Finger – a top to toe treat

Up the hill from Fethiye, in the heart of Ovacik, is Gold Finger. This beautifully designed shrine to beauty has a well deserved reputation for sending its customers home feeling like a million dollars. You can go for the complete works with top to toe treatments from your hair and face down to your feet and hands (and everywhere in between), or you can do one bit at a time! We think this kind of pampering is the perfect way to spend a couple of hours; once you’ve experienced their professional service we think you will too! And we know you’ll be back for more.

Now it’s back to Fethiye and we know from experience that no visit to the bustling town is complete without some shopping and Shaman and Kanat has it all! Your wardrobe needs indulging too and every kind of irresistible goody is on display at wonderful prices: from hippy chic to uber cool. You’re looking for something casual, edgy and sophisticated? There will be something for you… These shops are not large but their Tardis quality means there is something for everyone: for the daytime and the nighttime. And what about a pair of earrings or an eye-catching necklace? Or perhaps a little jacket to go with that frock? And maybe some shalwar and a kaftan for a relaxing evening with friends?

We certainly find it impossible to pass their gorgeous displays without a spot of serious therapy, and there is bound to be something you cant possibly resist, whether it’s for winter, spring, autumn or summer. In this video you can enjoy not only a range of clothes from Shaman and Kanat but also Şovalye Island out of season!

Mozaik Bahçe and Coast – all the style and none of the hassle

Once you’ve been pampered on the outside, it must surely be time to treat yourself to a wonderful meal at Mozaik Bahçe, followed or preceeded by a sunset cocktail at Çalış’ coolest bar, Coast. A cool and beautifully designed café bar, Coast opened earlier this year with the same high quality and quiet cool sophistication as Delta Hotel, next-door, which is no surprise as it belongs to the same owners. Both Coast and Mozaik Bahçe have quality and service at the top of their list and in our opinion, something just as important, your evening at both these venues will be tranquil, peaceful, and hassle free.

These pamperings are for women but of course there is no reason why the men can’t do a spot of their own indulging. However, if the guys want something specifically designed for them, they’ll have to wait until next week!
