D-Resort Göcek brings family friendly boutique style to the stunning Turquoise Coast

Last updated 1st March 2024

Welcome to D-Resort Göcek, a boutique design hotel just 20 minutes from Dalaman airport in the serene natural setting of Türkiye’s Turquoise Coast, where holidays are beautiful all year round.


D-Resort Göcek, Turkish Riviera

D-Resort Göcek for unmatched nature

Türkiye’s Dalaman coast on the Turkish Riviera is beloved of the international yachting community and known for its picturesque coastline and 12-island archipelago. At Göcek, the ancient ruins of the Lycian period are meticulously preserved, mysterious bays and caves await discovery, and splendid mountains rise out of crystal-clear waters. Use the resort’s free bikes to see the area, or charter your own Sundowner yacht and discover the stunning secrets and sights of the archipelago.

There are direct flights between the UK and Dalaman year-round, and D-Resort Göcek sits just a 25-minute transfer from the airport: good news when you’re travelling with children.


Göcek Marina and town, Türkiye

Enjoy the buzz of yachting life in Göcek town

D-Resort Göcek is within walking distance of Göcek and its bustling marinas, including the spectacular D-Marin, with its showstopping yachts. Walk from here into town along parallel promenades, passing luxurious villas and resorts built along the canal, and you might feel like you’re in Venice. The town is busiest between 7 and 10pm, perfect for when you’re out with kids, and restaurants adorned with fairy lights line the streets around the marinas.

Head further into town to discover the town square, where local weddings take place, and you’ll find more lovely places to eat, drink, and shop.


Ölüdeniz Beach, Türkiye

Location, location, and plenty of day trip potential

The location of D-Resort Göcek makes everything easy – a tranquil oasis within walking distance of buzzy Göcek town. There are myriad Dalaman Coast attractions you can see during your stay:

  • Ölüdeniz beach regularly ranks amongst the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches, and is one of the loveliest in Türkiye. It’s a nature reserve with a calm lagoon and curved beach, popular for paragliding, swimming and scuba diving. It’s around a 45-minute drive east from D-Resort Göcek.
  • Jump on a boat from Dalyan, around a 30-minute drive from the resort, to visit Turtle Beach, a nesting area for protected loggerhead turtles, and a beautiful white sand paradise. You can stop for a mineral-rich mud bath on the banks of the River Dalyan along the way – though pack a change of clothes, because it might get very messy!

Kayaköy ghost town, Türkiye

  • Get spooky at Kayaköy, some 40 miles west of D-Resort Göcek, which is ranked as one of the National Geographic’s Top 10 Ghost Towns of the World. Your older kids might love getting creeped out by the museum village of abandoned, but still standing, Greek-style houses, rumoured to be haunted by the souls of the Greeks massacred there during WWI.
  • For older kids who are up for a decent hike, Saklikent Gorge is one of the longest gorges in Europe, and ranks with the likes of Verdon in France or Crete’s Samaria Gorge. It’s part of Saklikent National Park, and located around an hour east of the resort.

Peaceful D-Resort Beach, Göcek

D-Resort Göcek lets your beach babes play all day

D-Resort Beach is a peaceful paradise sheltered by pine forested mountains, and washed with an endless azure sea. The soft white sand stays a comfortable temperature no matter what the mercury says, so your soles won’t get scorched and it doesn’t stick to your body (great if you have sand-averse kids). Enjoy the vista in comfort from wooden sun loungers and umbrellas providing shade for little ones, or in one of the cabanas set on two piers extending into the sea.

In the evenings, D’Breeze restaurant overlooking the bay has the best views of the harbour and marina, and you can watch the lights of boats as you enjoy an Aegean feast of fresh fish and seafood.
