Bask by the bay in Likya's copious Cabanas

Likya Gardens sits on the edge of Kalkan Bay. It’s the more favoured side, where the view of the sea extends beyond the opposite shore to create a shifting panorama of shimmering sunlit blue, or seductive moon-shadowed purple.

The hotel’s private beach club celebrates the outlook from its perch at the very tip of the bay’s rocky shore. It would be almost too exposed to the warming sun, were it not for the six private Cabanas that provide shade and comfort on the decking.

Free Cabana hire for 2012

There is a private Cabana available for each suite. Usually, there will be a daily rate for hire of the Cabanas, but to celebrate their debut year we are including them in the price of your holiday at no extra charge.

Your living room by the sea

These are not remote, disconnected outcrops. Each Cabana has an iPod docking station, a minibar, a digital safe and a laptop with WiFi access. You can enjoy the complete hedonistic experience, browsing as you bask, Tweeting and socialising online from your personal Cabana.

On the decks, you have two sunbeds and two elegant rattan chairs. Under the shelter, with its Maldives-style thatched shade and stately ceiling fan, there is a day bed with plenty of cushions and another table. There are curtains for extra privacy and shade.

And why not book a massage or beauty treatment to turn your private Cabana into a true sanctuary in the sun?

From Miami’s South Beach to St Tropez, the practice of sun worship has always involved total surrender to indulgence and the magic of your surroundings. The Seafront Cabanas at the Likya Gardens are the ultimate havens of tranquillity and retreat for Mediterranean sun-lovers.

Seafront Cabanas are available by the day – 9am to sunset. And don’t forget, there is no charge for hire through the 2012 season.
