Losta Sahil Evi

Bozburun Peninsula, Turkey

  • Small sea front hotel
  • 3 rooms
  • Panoramic views
  • Located in pretty Selimiye
  • Short walk to restaurants and shops
Peak season holidays: Please call our travel specialists for July and August prices.


For several years now the charming village of Selimiye has been on our radar. Often heralded as the new Kalkan, though considerably smaller and quieter, Selimiye’s sea front is lined with smart restaurants, waterside cafés, boutique shops and jazz bars. During the summer months the Istanbul elite moor their boats and gulets and turn Selimiye into a fashionable and bustling little resort. Yet step away from the main thoroughfare (or visit out of season) and you’ll discover a more traditional lifestyle and gentle pace, for Selimiye is still just a sleepy fishing village at heart.

This tiny six room hotel is located right on the waterfront, complete with a sunbathing and swimming platform. Each room has a small terrace or patio facing out towards the exceptionally clear sea and the magnificent panoramas of the peninsula beyond. The hotel has the feel of a boutique B&B: fresh, bright and stylish, with the added benefit of a restaurant and bar.

Blending contemporary style with traditional hospitality, Losta Sahil Evi is the ideal spot to enjoy all the contrasting charms of Selimiye; go now, before everyone else does!

Customer feedback

Simpson for us are the travel experts. Wonderful locations and accommodations with excellent, knowledgeable and friendly staff throughout the organisation. A great website that whets the appetite for the beautiful locations that more than live up to expectations. Add all the personal touches and it is difficult to see why you would want to travel with anyone else.
Mr Middleton – October 2017

Losta Sahil Evi was tranquil and beautiful offering complete rest with the option of excursions inland or at sea. The lunches were extremely good and Turkish tea with homemade cake at 4.30pm daily was a real treat. We stayed in Afrodit on the ground floor which has its own entrance and small terrace. The accommodation was very quiet, comfortable and cleaned daily. The Turkish breakfast served each morning from 8.30 - 10.30 am in a covered area in front of the bar was both plentiful and delicious. The deck in close proximity to the room was simply fantastic, the loungers and parasols complete with Simpson towels made it very easy to spend the whole day there. A lovely experience with excellent staff service throughout our stay. 
Ms Leigh – October 2017

This is a lovely location and the rooms are very nice, if a little small. The breakfasts are excellent and the staff helpful. Having said this, this is not a good location for anyone with walking difficulties. The ground all around the resort is very uneven and you cannot avoid steps even if you book a ground floor room.
Mr McGowan – October 2017

Simpsons is by far the best tour operator we have used. From booking to ease of paying, to the local rep Jess who was very knowledgeable and very helpful, to the beautiful accommodation and great staff in Turkey. Our holiday was the best that we have had in many years and now that we've found Simpsons, I doubt very much we'll be going elsewhere. 
Mrs Wilson – October 2017

Wonderful spot for swimming and watching the boats. Very well looked after, delicious breakfasts and tea. Eaten at lots of different restaurants along front. Boat trip - good way to explore but otherwise stayed here - too hot for exercise!
Marcus & Sally – July 2017

We have enjoyed a wonderful week at the lovely Losta Sahil Evi hotel,and am sure we will come back in the future. We stayed in a balcony room named Aura and the comfort of the room was excellent,from a comfortable bed to an exhilarating shower! Food at the hotel was of a very high standard at both breakfast in the hotel and at the Losta Restaurant in the evenings of which we dined there on four evenings,waiting staff were always very attentive without being overbearing. Afternoon tea was a plus, cakes and dessert made by the lovely Zaneb (always happy & smiling). Orcun was always on hand to offer some Turkish phrases, cay, and a chat! Along with Ahmet the hotel manager,they made our stay that little bit more special. Finally a big thanks to Jessica, who gave us a lot of info on the area and some good suggestions for things to do and Restaurants to visit, her knowledge of the area was invaluable, a wonderful holiday, thank you Simpson Travel.
Mr Parry – June 2017

First class. We will look to book with you again.
Mr Hague – June 2017

Absolutely beautiful place . Jessica was most helpful and Orchan was fantastic at the hotel. Hopefully we will return !!
Mrs Treweeks – May 2017

We've had a wonderful holiday. Very relaxing, wonderful walking area and great swimming. All the staff have been friendly and nothing has been too much trouble. Keep up the good work.
David & Jane – May 2017

This was one of the best holiday we have had. Selim was everything we had been told it would be and the location of Losta Sahil Evi couldn't have been better. We especially enjoyed the closeness of the pontoon and the fact there were plenty of loungers. Excellent service and a clean and comfortable room. It was altogether a wonderful week, and we would like to return, again in September, if we can. Thank you.
Mr Watson – September 2016

 

 

 

We loved Losta Sahil Evi; it's hard to beat the location right on the waterfront and in a quiet spot, yet still close to centre of Selimiye. We stayed in Asia, which was really lovely, although both other rooms offered through Simpson also looked very nice. I suspect there's not a bad choice. Our rep was so kind and thoughtful that we felt almost bad about not taking up any of her interesting trip suggestions and just lying on the swimming platform for a fortnight! If you are looking for a low-key break in a beautiful spot, and a small resort that still has a very Turkish feel, that you couldn't do much better
Ms Hawes – June 2016

What a find Simpson holidays excellent from start to finish. From now on our go to holiday company.
Mr Simons – June 2016

Both Losta Sahil Evi and Waterfront Cottage were absolutely wonderful. Losta Sahil Evi is the most perfect little hotel. It's position is ideal, the staff extremely friendly and welcoming and the food delicious. The view from our upstairs room was beautiful and it was lovely to have had the jetty for reading, relaxing and having access to the water. We look forward to returning! Our rep, Bilgen, was charming, well-informed, generous with her time and a delight to get to know. At the end of our two weeks we didn't want to leave Turkey. Thanks you Simpson!
Mrs Carrington – May 2016

Simpson Travel are a friendly, very experienced company who offer a personal service. Our first holiday with them has ticked all our demanding boxes and they will now be our operator of choice for Turkey and other European destinations. Its so much easier to book a holiday with a company who has anticipated your needs and puts a tempting range of options in one place, why look elsewhere?
Mrs Wilson May 2016

Selimiye is the most beautiful spot to spend a holiday in Turkey, in terms of both the actual place and the accessibility of the hotel to shops and restaurants.
Mr Phillips September 2015


BA flight was first class good service all round. It is nice to be met at the airport and taxis are ready waiting to transfer us to our destination. Our second year to Selimiye and the hotel and staff were once again excellent very friendly always willing to help that extra bit.The only problem is the food (you won't lose weight) at the hotel and any of the restaurants is so good!!! Thoroughly enjoyed 11 out of 10.
Mrs Lee-Williams September 2015


This was the second time we travelled with Simpson Travel and we were not disappointed. Charlie (who booked the holiday) was very efficient and gave good advice. Ayten (our representative at our resort) was also very helpful and giving useful local advice. She also made a couple of arrangements for us (boat trip and a dinner reservation) and gave accurate, detailed information (regarding costs and logistics etc).
Mrs Bull June 2015


Simpson Travel are a very efficiently run holiday company. All the staff, whether on the phone or face to face know their job and carry it out well. Excellent locations and accomodations.
Mrs Whitehead September 2014


Selimiye is a small, beautiful and peaceful village probably best suited to those who have visited Turkey previously.The setting of the Losta Sahil Evi is excellent.
Mr Murphy September 2014


Our holiday (a very short 2 weeks) has been an amazing one. The people have been so kind and friendly, not to mention patient with 2 English people trying their hardest at Turkish. The restaurants have all been beautiful. A special thank you to all at the hotel for making this so much fun.
Mr Rope September 2014

Our choice of Turkey properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

Reaching out from a forested coastline towards the nearby Aegean islands of Symi, Tilos and Rhodes, the Bozburun Peninsula is one of the most peaceful and picturesque corners of southwest Turkey.

Azure bays and sheltered coves, woodland, olive groves and mountains set the scene for a holiday fragranced with fields of lavender and wild thyme. Centred around the seaside town of Bozburun itself, famous for boat building, this discretely luxurious destination is a protected conservation area, made for leisurely boat trips, sea-view restaurants and walks along the cliff tops.
