Kaş and Our Hotel

The City Of Kaş

kas street

Kaş (pronounced Kah-sh) is a walkable, hillside town positioned with an amazing view of the Mediterranean Sea and surrounding islands. It is a bit far from the airports (3.5 hrs from Antalya, 2.5 hrs from Dalaman) but this is one of the reasons it stays small, and beautiful. It has a genuine, friendly feel and local arts and music culture. It is a favorite holiday location for us and our local friends.

Our Hotel

For our September camp our group will be divided between the lovely Mavilim Otel and its sister deluxe villa Lumina Otel, both on the peninsula, about a 10 minute walk between them, and about 5km from the city center.

Mavilim Otel

Mavilim has 16 rooms and we will occupy several of them with our group. There is a walk way (with stairs) down to a private sun bathing and sea access area.

 

Lumina Otel

Lumina has 5 rooms, 4 on the top floor and 1 on the ground floor. We have reserved the entire villa for our group. The villa has a kitchen and spacious living area available to our guests, as well as a pool and lovely garden area.

The two hotels are inter-linked, with meals being prepared at Mavilim, and it is our choice to have the villa residents take their meals at the villa or come to Mavilim to eat with the rest of the group.
