Olympos Lycia (Turkey)

Olympos (Olimpos) is a string of pansiyons and tourist activities strung along a narrow road on the bottom of a valley just inland from coastal Roman ruins in LyciaMediterranean Turkey. It might be generously labelled a "village".


Ancient Lycian ruins, an isolated Mediterranean beach, accommodation in treehouses and flames that mysteriously burn from the side of a mountain are some of the attractions of Olympos (Olimpos) in Turkey's south.
The modern "village" is named after the Lycian/Roman city that now lies in ruins on the beach, which in turn is named after nearby Mt. Tahtalı, the highest mountain of the vicinity and, along with some other 20-odd noticably high mountains in northeastern Mediterranean basin, known as Olympos in antiquity.
A hippie haven until recently, the completion of a surfaced road from the main highway in summer 2009 means that there are many more people (including families with children) heading there compared with only a few in years past. In summer weekends when many day- (and night-) trippers pour in, Olympos is similar to many other resort towns. However, former habitués report that during autumn when everyone else quits the scene, Olympos can be just as beautiful as it used to be.

Chi The Spa at Shangri La Bosphorus

We feel that using trite words such as “rebirth” “relaxing” or “luxurious” do not suffice to truly describe the experience offered at Chi, The Spa inside the Shangri-La Bosphorus.

Visually this translates into personal rooms that soothe guests as soon as they enter with their own private bathroom, massage room, bath, and more. The dimly lit spaces and pristine golden glow of furniture and accessories cause a peaceful aura to ensue from beginning to end.

The personal therapists are experts in their field administering international techniques of relaxation such as Thai Massage, Chinese Tui Na, Balinese Massage, Philippine Hilot Massage, or Indian Yoga Rebalancing Massage in a meticulous yet personalized way. Treatments from Turkey are also present such as the Turkish Bath or different body scrubs using products of local organic ingredients. Facials are also available as well as body treatments that all offer holistic means of nourishing the skin.
