This is a wonderful resort where old and new Turkey thrive side by side (you see what we did there?) and you’ll find both Roman ruins and cool cocktails within easy reach of your sunbed. The promontory that separates the resort’s west and each beaches is a major archaeological site, with ancient stones everywhere. The temples of Athena and Apollo virtually loom over the waterfront promenade, where you’ll find a host of cafes and shops to visit in between sightseeing.
The gently-shelving west beach is perfect for swimming and fun water-sports and within easy reach you’ll find all the ingredients for a fantastic week in the sun. Add a smart adult-only hotel where the emphasis is on good food and good service and you’ve got a great holiday for single travellers.

Please note that from 2nd March 2020, a tourist Visa is no longer required to visit Turkey.

The Raga launched in summer 2018 as an all-new adult-only hotel (16+) of 187 rooms just a couple of blocks back from the sandy west beach, where it has its own private section, with sun loungers and parasols, plus a beach bar all part of the hotel’s excellent All-inclusive package.

There are two outdoor pools, one for totally chilling-out, the other where the hotel’s activity team offers aqua gym and other water-based fun. Other options range from beach volleyball to Pilates classes, and evenings include occasional live music and discos. There’s free WiFi in the hotel’s public areas.

The Raga takes food and drink seriously and in 2021, all food will be à la carte! The main À la Minute restaurant offers an extensive breakfast, with waiter service at lunch and dinner plus a cooked-to-order grill station and salad bar. Themed evenings include Italian and French menus. As you would expect in a sophisticated hotel, there’s an evening dress code: no shorts. Once per stay you can choose one of the two à la carte restaurants for dinner. Long trousers must be worn by men for dinner in all restaurants.
There are 3 bars in the hotel: the stylish Lobby bar and the sports bar where Sky Sports is streamed, plus the Pool bar which offers drinks by the glass from 10am to midnight, with coffee and cake each afternoon. Drinks by the glass include many international brands (Lobby Bar), as well as cocktails, along with fresh orange juice at breakfast and iced coffees by the pool.

The well-maintained beach area is served by the Strand bar which offers drinks and snacks all day including Turkish gözleme at lunchtime and ice creams in the afternoons.
There’s a charge to use the Spa, which has its own pool, plus sauna, steam and Hamman and a range of beauty treatments and massages.

Friendship Travel guests rooms are all in the main hotel block.

There is a good choice of flights into Antalya, about an hour away. Once in Side, you don’t have to go far for sightseeing: ancient stones virtually litter the old city! The temples and amphitheatre are a must, and there is also a Roman Agora (market), ruined Byzantine palace and city walls: the small museum in the 5th century bath-house houses beautiful artefacts. Side also offers a good range of boat trips, from dolphin-spotting cruises to Gulet day boats. (You can also twin a week at The Raga with a week on one of our chartered Gulets cruising out of Kemer near Antalya.)
