Turkey is very popular with tourists from all over the world. Some like the bright, cheerful, well-deserved fame of Antalya, Kemer, Marmaris. Others choose less developed and less noisy places, such as Kizilot. The hotels here are new, modern, with a wide range of services at quite affordable prices. Cenger Beach Resort SPA Hotel is considered one of the best. Its rich infrastructure and special location allow everyone who is tired of the busy rhythm of life, vanity, endless worries and troubles to get a good rest. The hotel staff takes care of it all.
Location, description of the area
The five-star hotel Cenger Beach Resort (Turkey) is located a couple of dozen steps from the Mediterranean coast, in the new and still sparsely built-up resort area of Kizilot. This is approximately on the border with the resort of Alania, which has long been chosen by Russian tourists. Manavgat, famous for its waterfalls and canyons, is only 13 km from the hotel. It is the third largest city in the region by area and population. On the publictransport, the journey there takes approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on how many stops will be at the request of passengers.
A little further, literally 5 minutes from Manavgat, is the ancient city-museum of Side. The nearest airport is located in Antalya, which is about 90 km from Cenger Beach Resort. If you use a car, the journey will take about 2 hours, which tourists with kids need to take into account. An excellent paved highway almost all the time stretches along the coast. From the windows of the car or bus, views of the sea on one side and hills with rare groups of trees on the other. Arriving guests are immediately struck by some privacy of the hotel. In other resorts, sometimes from the windows of the rooms you can observe what is happening in the rooms of neighboring hotels - they are so close. Here, however, this is not the case, so you can enjoy a real rest from the hustle and bustle of the world. Even the nearest store is 7-8 minutes walk. But the highway is very close. Dolmushes regularly “run” here, so it’s very easy to get where your heart desires. In addition to cities, there are a couple of villages with small shops and taverns nearby the hotel. The nearest one is Kizilot (3 km to it). The second is Okurcalar (4 km to it). You can also walk to them if the weather permits.
Description of the territory
Since there are no other applicants for land nearby, the Cenger Beach Resort hotel is quietly located on a vast territory - 12 thousand square meters. Wonderful flowers are fragrant here, palm trees are green all year round,junipers and rhododendrons. Impressive lawns with emerald grass are also pleasing to the eye. The solid area made it possible to conveniently place two magnificent buildings on the territory, a wonderful swimming pool for adults with an island in the center, a mini-water park, a bar, a children's pool, tennis courts, sports grounds, and a parking lot. There is even a private amphitheater where concerts of touring artists, contests and quizzes organized by animators are held.

Sea, weather conditions in Kizilot
Cenger Beach Resort SPA is very close to its private beach. Before it you need to go 400 meters through the tunnel. The sea in this area of Kizilot is crystal clear, but open to all winds, so there are waves here. On the one hand, this is a small problem for vacationers with small children, on the other hand, it is a paradise for surfers. Sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach are free, which is not often found in Turkey. Employees of the Cenger Beach Resort SPA-hotel also provide clean beach towels every day free of charge. A feature of this stretch of coast is that the beaches here are not sandy, but pebbly. There are even large stones, so it is advisable for vacationers to have special swimming shoes on their feet. The entry into the sea is not particularly gentle, which some like and others do not.
Besides the beach bar, there are many activities such as banana boat rides, glass bottom boat rides. There is also a yacht and scooter rental.
The weather conditions of this region allow you to have a great rest from May to September inclusive. In summer, there is practically no rain here, it is very hot (quite often the mercury column rises above 30 degrees Celsius, andin some years it generally froze at around +45). The sea near the coast warms up well during these months: the water temperature is from 25 to 28 degrees Celsius. In May and September it is relatively "cool": +25 … +30 оС. Even in April and October it is relatively warm here (during the day the air temperature fluctuates between +22-26 degrees). The sea warms up to +20 оС and higher. The only minus of the rest in these months is the precipitation, which is “pleasant” literally every week. However, this does not prevent you from having a great rest, because there is not yet a large influx of tourists, and prices are not as high as in the peak season.
