Simpson Hotels

  • Stunning views
  • 41 rooms and suites

Children are welcome from 26 May – 2 June, 14 July – 1 September and 20 – 27 October. All other departure dates are Adult Only (18 years or older).

The Regency is a Kalkan legend. Loved by guests and the travel press in equal measure, this family-run hotel has raised the bar to the highest possible level in terms of friendly, professional service, delivered with a genuine smile in one of the best locations in Kalkan. We are delighted that owners Masuda and Nuri Tomanbay and their two sons, Dolunay and Aşkınay, have decided on Simpson Travel as their exclusive partners.

‘The best view in Kalkan’ is a title that many aspire to, and The Regency certainly has a legitimate claim to the honour, offering a wide-angle panorama of the harbour and the bay beyond from just about every corner of the hotel. Beyond the view, the focal point for most guests is the large swimming pool. To build a pool of this size in a place where level ground is more valuable than gold is testament to the Tomanbay family’s commitment to exceeding their guests’ expectations, a philosophy that you’ll encounter over and over again during your stay.

With an outstanding restaurant serving locally-sourced produce, a traditional hamam, a gym and an elegant spa, the hotel is aimed primarily at a discerning adult clientele, and children under 12 are not permitted outside the main school holiday periods. You are very welcome to bring your children in the high summer months however, and some of the suites sleep up to four to accommodate those travelling with little ones. Even when the hotel is full, the grounds are so large that there is room for everyone to find their own space, and the gently sociable atmosphere of the bar and pool areas is a great attraction for guests of all ages, some of whom rarely leave the hotel during their entire stay. If you’d like to get out and explore a bit more of Kalkan, the village centre is around ten minutes away on foot, plus another five to the harbour. 

The 41 rooms and suites vary in style, size and aspect, and all the individual room types are listed in our Details section. Whether you chose a standard room for two or one of the new Pool Suites with its own individual pool, the unifying factor is the warmth and attention shown to every visitor. Masuda, Nuri, Dolunay and Aşkınay clearly share our own passion for personal service, and we are confident that Simpson travellers will be as taken with this special place as we are and the many numbers of guests who return year after year.

All guests staying at the Kalkan Regency in 2018 are treated to a complimentary Turkish bath (hamam) treatment in the hotel's renowned spa and a day trip on the hotel’s traditional gület boat, Poseidon, with lunch and a welcome glass of bubbles included. During the excursion, soft drinks will also be provided free of charge, but additional alcoholic drinks will need to be paid for on board. Tea/coffee and cakes will be served in the afternoon. Please contact reception on arrival to make your bookings.

Customer feedback

An excellent hotel, with unusually attentive and friendly service in a stunning location and with wonderful views of Kalkan and the immediate coastline. A place to rest, relax, eat home cooking of a high order and explore further afield if you choose. A special place...
Dame Palmer – October 2017

We found the Kalkan Regency almost 15 years ago when staying in another hotel on our first visit to Kalkan. We like Kalkan very much but the combination of the most relaxing and unpretentious Kalkan Regency with the Kalkan restaurants and, for me, the wealth of world-class historical sites nearby make it irresistible. This was our first visit in the autumn – previously have come at the end of May – both are good times but the sun not quite so fierce in the autumn and the sea warmer.
Mr Walkley – October 2017

We stayed at the Kalkan Regency for the first time and it was a joy from start to finish. We felt like part of a lovely warm large family and very much enjoyed meeting the other guests. The trip to the farm was very special. Thank you so very much.
Phil and Maggy – October 2017

Great holiday at The Kalkan Regency, the hotel was all that it was cracked up to be and more, staff were excellent and made us feel at home from the very beginning. Food was excellent, especially the 'fish night'. We will be back!
Mr Bruce – September 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our Simpson Travel holiday. From the moment we landed in Turkey we were met with a seamless, efficient, friendly service which enabled us to make the most of our week in Kalkan. Vicki, our rep, was informative and helpful; our hotel was set in a fantastic location with great facilities and the surrounding region was a delight to explore with something for everyone – stunning scenery, unspoilt beaches, ancient ruins and a delightful town packed with rooftop restaurants – all this and wall-to-wall sunshine. Thank you Simpson Travel for a great week!
Dr Bailey – September 2017

The Kalkan Regency is an absolute gem of a hotel and I can't recommend it more highly – or its excellent staff and service. Perfect, secluded location – but within an easy walk of the town and harbour.
LH – September 2017

This was our first trip with Simpson Travel. It certainly won't be our last. Excellent hotel (Kalkan Regency) with first class service and fantastic food. Nothing was too much trouble. A little piece of heaven!
Mrs Robinson – August 2017

Just returned from The Kalkan Regency – another wonderful holiday, accommodation, food and service were excellent. Would recommend this hotel/location to all my family and friends – will look forward to returning.
Mrs Manby – August 2017

We booked at the last minute and found the whole process efficient and reassuring. The website gave an accurate description of the hotel and resort and from arrival in Dalaman, the service we received was exceptional. The Kalkan Regency staff were warm and welcoming and rightly proud of the hotel, its facilities and menus. Our day trip on their magnificent gulet was amazing and we made good use of the spa facilities and the hotel's hamam. We would highly recommend their themed menu nights – the food was delicious and the barbecue night good fun. We have returned already recommending Kalkan, the Kalkan Regency and Simpson Travel to our friends. The holiday provided very good value for money and we can certainly understand why there were a number of 'returners' to this gem of a hotel.
Mrs Dubben – August 2017

The overall service and holiday was excellent, we are well travelled people and have only returned to a couple of locations over the years as we like to explore – make that three! – we will be back to Kalkan, everyone was marvellous, nothing was too much trouble and friendly beyond belief. Cannot understand why we haven't heard of this place before as we went on a recommendation from friends. Even the taxi driver bought us drinks and cakes to and from the airport – lovely touch! Regency staff went the extra mile, we had one of the older rooms which could do with an update, but was always immaculately cleaned daily. Well done all.
Richard and Karen – July 2017




The Kalkan Regency is simply the perfect place to spend a luxury holiday with the family touch. Nothing is too much trouble and Masuda, her son Dolunay and their excellent staff just want you to enjoy everything they have to offer. The food is excellent and The Sea Point restaurant which serves a delicious menu from home grown produce is highly recommended.
Mrs Griffiths – June 2017

The Kalkan Regency has been one of the best hotels we have stayed in – staff, food, location were all excellent.
Mr Sutcliffe – June 2017

Wonderful first holiday with Simpson Travel. The Kalkan Regency was simply stunning. We felt like we were on our honeymoon. Every aspect of the holiday, including travel and transfer, was faultless. Thank you.
Ms Sharma – September 2016

This was our second time this year at the Kalkan Regency.  We were greeted at the airport by Vicki, our rep, like old friends which made us feel very welcome. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted again as valued friends and the whole experience was brilliant. We can't wait to go back – what a special hotel this is! – and as always all the Simpson Travel reps at resort and airport were really friendly and helpful which all goes to make a lovely holiday. Well done Simpson Travel!
Mrs Wakeling – September 2016

The Kalkan Regency is an excellent hotel.
Mr Cramb – September 2016

Excellent tour company, top class rep at hotel! Have already booked for next year.
Mrs Applegate – September 2016

Beautiful locations and a wonderful selection of hotel and accommodation options as well as excellent service, care and attention all round which adds to the whole holiday experience, thanks Simpson Travel!
Mrs Mason – September 2016

The Kalkan Regency is truly a wonderful hotel, the location and views are breathtaking. The place simply exudes style and sophistication but in such a warm and friendly way, nothing is too much trouble but then everything is perfect anyway. Once been I think you simply have to return, I love this place.
Mr Hutchinson – August 2016

Luxury, boutique, 5-star holidays don't get much better than our recent holiday with Simpson Travel. Our every want and need was taken care of and we will be travelling with them again without doubt!
Mr Maxwell – August 2016

Excellent quality from start to finish. It's all in the detail and our recent holiday certainly had it covered by Simpson Travel.
Mrs Knights – July 2016

We had a great holiday. This was our third visit to the Kalkan Regency, some of those we met had been there 10 times or more! We think that tells you all you need to know about the location, staff and food. This is a beautiful and relaxing family run hotel with an amazing view and we hope very much to return soon. Simpson Travel reps were excellent.
Miss Chawla – June 2016

The Kalkan Regency is fabulous as are the family and staff.
Mrs Applegate – June 2016

The Kalkan Regency is a great hotel with great staff and food, the cleanliness in bedrooms and all public areas is superb. The rep was very helpful and always to be found each morning at breakfast if you needed her, but didn't hassle you. Overall an excellent holiday.
Mrs Jones – May 2016

If you can, go to the Kalkan Regency. It has a wonderful location in Kalkan, with fantastic views over the bay and harbour but it is not too far for an easy stroll into the town where there are many lovely restaurants. You will not be disappointed.
Mr Thompson – May 2016

From our experience of two holidays, this company provides excellent service and a reliable and high standard of accommodation. We would highly recommend them, in fact we already have.
Mrs Jemmett – May 2016

The Kalkan Regency was superb location – accommodation, staff and service were excellent.
Mr Scott – May 2016

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.

Set against a breathtaking mountain backdrop, Kalkan sits on Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast: a cosmopolitan, vibrant resort perfect for exploring the timeless beauty of ancient Lycia's pine-clad shores. The pretty town centre is a treasure trove of narrow streets, whitewashed Ottoman Greek houses and inviting boutiques. It's also famous for its harbourside lounge bars and rooftop restaurants serving a variety of delicious food with impeccable service.

Our guests return to Kalkan year after year. To find out why, visit our collection of luxury villas and hotels and, if you book a holiday there in 2018, we'll include a complimentary hamam experience and a day trip along the Turquoise Coast in a traditional wooden gület.
