About the Lagoon Retreat
The Lagoon Retreat is located in an elevated position in a forested conservation area overlooking the Sülüngür Lagoon with spectacular views across the beautiful Dalyan delta and Istuzu beach.
Ian is your host and has been one of the founding partners of Huzur Vadisi for over thirty years. He has a fantastic fund of local knowledge, which combined with his long experience of creating and hosting yoga venues will guarantee your retreat runs smoothly and enjoyably. He is supported by Arslan, who discovered this extraordinary location twenty-five years ago developing the property in harmony with its spectacular natural setting.
A short bus ride from the village will bring you to the charming riverside town of Dalyan with its shops and restaurants. A 5-minute bus ride in the opposite direction will take you to Istuzu, a long, sandy beach in the conservation area where Loggerhead turtles come to lay their eggs.
This is a unique location - with its combination of complete seclusion (you feel as if you are on the edge of the known world) and yet accessible, situated on the edge of a traditional rural village with bus connections for getting out and about if you wish. It has unbeatable views, comfortable well-appointed accommodation, a pool and a fully equipped yoga shala. Not to mention the delicious meals for which Turkey, and Huzur Vadisi in particular, are renowned.
There are eleven air-conditioned ensuite bedrooms suitable for single, double or twin accommodation with balconies and lovely forest views. One sea view room is available at a supplement.
Enjoy fresh vegetables and fruit during all our truly delicious meals. It is the food as much as the location, as well as the hospitality, that make this the perfect place to relax and find some peace.
We will be served opulent breakfast and dinner, unlimited fruit, water, teas and coffee. Delicious inexpensive lunches are available a short walk away in charming little eateries (or in Dalyan) or you can get a light packed lunch if you’re going to the beach.
There are several companies flying to Dalaman, or you can get an easy connection via Istanbul. Prices vary according to time of booking or season. It is advisable to book early to get the best prices.
The Lagoon Retreat is 25 minutes from Dalaman airport and we will arrange transfers, for which the costs will be added to your bill (for any extras) at the end, so you don't need any Turkish Lira on arrival.

And I am so excited for you to meet Fairlie:
For more than 20 years a Scaravelli Inspired Yoga teacher, Fairlie is now also embracing a Feldenkrais Training, as well as bringing some Qi Gong into her practice and teaching. These practices all feed beautifully into the way she likes to teach Mindfulness Meditation.
Very similarly to me, Fairlie loves how contemporary Science, Anatomy, Physiology and Neuroscience are all questioning and validating traditional Yoga practices and she relishes the explorations that these disciplines have brought into her life.
What previous participants say
Now that the sights, sounds, whiffs and delicious tastes of that very lovely off the beaten track part of Turkey have started to subside the cosmic feel good factor remains...and I'm not talking about the aftereffects of the stiff Pimms and lemonade that I've just downed. What a lovely experience to have had.
I honestly can’t recall a holiday that’s had so much internal push and pull and emotional connection as this one ….I still feel like I’m processing all kinds of stuff….in a good way.
Everything was excellent - well organised, flowed beautifully from one activity to the next and felt in a safe place to explore the body and build confidence. The experience of finding and feeling and awakening in my body for the first time, despite many years of yoga, made this week very special.
