Fethiye / Oludeniz, Turkey

The Forever Hotel is a little gem with a big fan club, and no wonder! Baz is the friendly owner and with his family has been welcoming solo travellers for many years, running an exclusive Houseparty for Friendship Travel since 2012. The hotel’s 3-star rating reflects its modest facilities compared to some hotels in our programme but upgrading the bedrooms in 2015 and subsequent work means guests often award the hotel 4-stars or higher ratings because of its friendly service and happy atmosphere: don’t take our word for it, you can see for yourself on Tripadvisor.

Forever Hotel

With only 19 rooms, the Forever is a perfect size for a Friendship Travel Houseparty, and with the generous pool surrounded by sun loungers, this feels very much like a private villa party. There’s a shady poolside bar and dining area, a table-tennis table, free Wi-Fi and pretty gardens with self-standing hammocks.

Our package includes a Turkish buffet breakfast each morning, and 4 evening meals each week in the hotel’s own restaurant, which is also open at lunchtimes for guests who are having a day by the pool (pool/beach towels are provided).

There are good-value snacks, ice-creams and drinks available throughout the day and evening (own expense).
