Certificate of Excellence - Murat Reis Ayvalik’s Beach Awarded Blue Flag

Set against the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea, Murat Reis Ayvalık is delighted to announce that their beach has recently been awarded a blue flag. An award of excellence, the prestigious award marks and highlights the standard of quality, exceptional safety and awareness to the environment. Surrounded by spell-binding nature, with gourmet cuisine and an incredible spa that includes a sauna with sea view, Murat Reis embodies the very best of Ayvalik.

Undiscovered by much of the world, Murat Reis Ayvalik is a new hotel - but also it's an entirely unfamiliar, up and coming part of Turkey. A long-time favourite for Turkish holidaymakers and locals, Ayvalik is just now being discovered by the outside world.  Stylish and smart, this spectacular hotel is the only one of its kind, including captivating views of the Aegean coast and a once in a lifetime opportunity to discover an undiscovered Turkish delight.

Known for its oxygen rich, clean air, the area is a major draw. Indeed, Ayvalik represents undiscovered Turkey at its best.  Ayvalık Islands Nature Park is Turkey’s largest nature reserve in Turkey, with the richest underwater floor structure.  Nearby there are more than twenty islands that form an ecological niche of underwater flora and fauna and 60 diving locations that provide suitable conditions all year long.   Red corals have been identified in 34 places – more than the Red Sea - and helpfully, there is daily diving instruction on offer. 

Murat Reis Ayvalik offers sunset wine tastings, two chic restaurants offering a wide selection of modern Mediterranean foods along with incredible views.  There is a deck bar, pool bar and lobby bar all on offer and for the highly motivated, a vast menu of water-sports including waterskiing, wakeboard, monoski, ringo, matte and canoeing.  In the Murat Reis luxury spa and fitness centre there is a heated open pool, sauna, steam room and Turkish Bath and all gym equipment affords excellent sea and island views whilst exercising.  There are opportunities to visit local olive oil factories, the ancient Leka Panagia Monastery, and both city and island tours. 

Murat Reis Ayvalik has 91 rooms, luxury bungalows and an Exclusive Villa. Sea View Rooms start at 106 pounds per night.
