Retreat location

The retreat will take place in Sultan Palas Hotel, Turkey. This family-run guest house is a real jewel and is situated in a secluded location near to the Dalyan Delta in the Mediterranean region of South West Turkey. A frequent boat service takes guests across the river to the hotel thus preserving its tranquility.

Boats are readily available on the gently flowing Dalyan river and provide an opportunity to head downstream to Iztuzu turtle beach through the labyrinth of channels alongside the reed beds of the Dalyan Delta or upstream to the renowned thermal baths and Lake Köycegiz - or just to wander through Dalyan enjoying the cafe culture and the views across the river.

The entire region is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a paradise for ramblers with endless treks winding along the river banks, through the reed beds and up into the surrounding pine covered slopes.
