Review: Mandarin & Mango Boutique Hotel, Fethiye


Book A Stay

Lying between the resort town of Fethiye and the idyllic, turquoise bay of Oludeniz in Turkey is the sleepy hamlet of Faralya, where you’ll find the exclusive Mandarin & Mango Boutique Hotels. Mandarin and Mango Boutique Hotels Fethiye are luxurious boutique hotels located near the picturesque town of Fethiye.


The hotels are situated 9km away from the popular seaside resort of Oludeniz, whose lagoon beach is one of the most famous and well-photographed in all of Turkey. They are also just 21km from the bustling harbor and market town of Fethiye, sitting close to southwest Turkey’s magnificent Turquoise Coast and just south of the stunning Butterfly Valley. The village of Faralya is perfect for a tranquil escape surrounded by an unspoiled natural setting, yet it has the benefit of being near many towns and sites and is also only 80km from the international airport of Dalaman. Culture enthusiasts will be in their element here, too, with a wealth of fascinating historical sites to explore, from the atmospheric “ghost village” of Kayakoy to ancient sites including Tlos, Pinara, Xanthos, Letoon, Patara, and Cadyanda. The hotel itself is also surrounded by a variety of shops and restaurants, making it easy for guests to explore the area.

Style & Character

Mandarin is set in two carefully restored old village houses, while the slightly more luxurious and newer Mango is literally just across the road. Guests can enjoy the beautiful views of the bay, the lush green hillsides, and the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel also features a spa, a restaurant, and a terrace with outdoor seating.

Service & Facilities

Both the hotels have their own beautiful swimming pool with comfortable loungers tucked between the gardens that surround them, plus there’s a large outdoor Jacuzzi at Mandarin too, and stunning sea views. If you really want to indulge, the hotels arrange for a local spa practitioner to visit, and you can enjoy a massage or treatment in your room or in a quiet spot in the gardens. There are also stylish communal lounge areas where you can socialize with fellow guests and enjoy a drink from the bar.


Between the two hotels, there are just 18 spacious guestrooms and suites, each with a balcony or terrace with wonderful views across the countryside and down towards the sea. The charming guest rooms and suites are designed to be stylish country hideaways and feature wood-beamed ceilings, bespoke, hand-carved wood furnishings, and tile floors, which creates an authentically Turkish, relaxed ambiance. All rooms come with flat-screen TVs and en-suite bathrooms and some even offer private balconies or terraces.

Some of the rooms have twin beds, but all the double rooms have super-king-size four-poster beds and a two-person Jacuzzi, perfect for a romantic end to your day. Discerning guests would definitely be at home in the Junior or Deluxe Suites, both of which are located in Mandarin. There are also two split-level Pool Villas with private pools and gardens that offer more space and privacy.

Food & Drink

A delicious breakfast is served each morning with a selection of homemade jams, pastries, and fresh eggs to set you up for a day of exploring your natural surroundings. In the evenings, the intimate restaurant Delimeze offers five-course evening meals bursting with local produce. The cuisine is primarily traditional local recipes, and they will happily cater to vegetarians or special menus on request.
