We first visited Dalyan in 1998 and we fell in love with the plot where we started building the dream place. Sedir Resort & Bungalows, Suites welcomed its first guests in 2000. Over the years, we have made significant changes and improvements to our resort.
Surrounded by orange and
pomegranate farms, Sedir is a family-run hotel & bungalows which is located in the coolest part of Dalyan. All of our rooms, suites and bungalows have a panoramic view of the surrounding hills, forest, mountains and swimming pool.

The town of Dalyan is located on the Turquoise coast in southern Turkey. Dalyan is well known thanks to its proximity to the famous 7km Iztuzu Beach where the endangered Loggerhead Turtles (Caretta Caretta) lay their eggs, the beach and surrounding area is protected. The beach can be reached by minibus or by a relaxing boat ride on the Dalyan Canal and on through the river beds.
Across the canal we find the ruins of the city of Kaunos, with a Roman theatre, fortifications, basilica and many other sites to be seen. Dalyan itself has strict building regulations which allow us to keep the traditional feeling in the village, traditionally a fishing village the village has a warm welcome to visitors.
An excellent swimming beach, Iztuzu (Turtle) Beach is one of the Mediterranean nesting sites of the loggerhead turtle, and special rules to protect it are enforced.
IZTUZU (TURTLE BEACH)
The beach, commonly referred to as Turtle Beach and also known as Iztuzu Beach, lies at the end of the Dalyan Delta and is a 7km sandbank. At one end the beach is backed mountains and hills covered in pine trees, this accessible by road and public minibus. The other end, referred to as the boat end, is backed by the reed beds that make up the labyrinth that is the Dalyan Delta.
THE KAUNOS TOMBS
The Rock Tombs overlooking Dalyan were built to house the dead Kings from the ancient City of Kaunos and offer an impressive sight that inspires all that see them. During your holiday you will see them almost every day and at each glance you'll wonder at just how the ancient people of Kaunos carved such features with just the most basic of tools. When illuminated at night the splendour is amplified with the orange glow.
Kaunos (some prefer the Latin spelling Caunus) is located just outside the modern resort town of Dalyan, separated from it by the river of the same name (its ancient name was Kalbys).
Kaunos was probably founded as early as the 9th or 8th century BC, most likely by local Carians. From the 5th century BC onwards, it gradually took on the characteristics of a Greek city.
The mud baths in Dalyan are touted to have medicinal benefits for your skin due to the nutrient rich nature of the mud.
Much like the mud baths, the nearby sulfur spring is touted to have medicinal benefits for people who have rheumatism, hypertension, liver disease, gout, and a long line of other ailments.
MUD BATHS & SPRINGS
If you enjoy splashing around in the mud or wish to become more beautiful during your trip to Dalyan then the Mud Baths are your answer. The mud is said to have anti-ageing properties in that it removes your wrinkles, firstly cover your body in the mud and then bask in the sun while the mud bakes dry. As the mud dries it shrinks your skin removing your wrinkles with it. While it has not been scientifically proven to have this affect those that have tried it all believe themselves to have younger skin as a result. Failing any beauty affects many families enjoy the time wallowing in the mud on a hot day.
