Centauera Boutique Hotel Alanya


Centauera Boutique Hotel is nestled amongst the ancient ruins of Alanya castle and its defences. Its is set apart from the madness of modern life. It is a unique space where you will feel part of this city’s heritage and history. That is why we say that this is the best boutique hotel in Alanya.

First this enjoy this short video guide which shows you the road you take to get to this breathtaking little haven, as Koray, the owner, enjoys a quiet cup of coffee before the day’s service begins …….


The hotel itself, the bedrooms and the grounds are all part of a sensitively and tastefully renovated historical villa.

The garden restaurant enjoys a panoramic view over the glistening turquoise ocean, Alanya’s Red Tower vibrant harbour.

You won’t be subjected to any  crazy beating music. There  are no over enthusiastic waiters clammering for your attention. You are left to enjoy the peace, to enjoy your chosen company. You can make the most of having a beautiful front seat at one of nature’s most stunning panoramas.

Add some excellent food and great service and you will have found your little piece of paradise.

The Centauera Boutique Hotel is one of a kind.

Its not part of a chain, it is one man’s dream.

Who is the man behind the dream

Koray, the owner, always wanted to open such a place. He learned his trade working his way through the restaurants, hotel and food outlets in London and in Europe.  

He has  used his experiences of being a foreigner in other countries to influence the concept of his boutique hotel. This has created a place which is very different from those around him. He has used the best ideas from a range different cultures with their differing values. He has maintained a clear vision as he has developed this love of his life.

In doing so he has given countless guests the pleasure of enjoying a unique experience. First class facilities and service in an ancient building located in an area steeped in history.

He now runs the hotel with the help of his beautiful wife aptly named Gul, which is ‘Rose’ in English. They are a great team and both make you feel so relaxed. You will find smiles, laughter and a warm welcome at Centauera Boutique Hotel.

We love the fact that the Centauera is enjoyed by locals, Turkish holiday makers and foreigners from across the globe. It is  a refreshing change for those tedious of large hotel chains and modern tourist conveyor belts.


You may be right in the heart of the city and only a stones throw from the nightclubs and tourist madness but you really would not know it.

The decor is rustic and in keeping with the history and architecture of the hotel.

Antique and tasteful furnishings and ornaments have been carefully selected and compliment and enhance the buildings age, history and heritage. Soft fabric and luxurious attention to detail make you feel cosy and comfortable.

There are five double rooms, all with en-suite facilities. The dining room has a balcony overlooking the hotels garden and the harbour where you can enjoy al-fresco dining.

You are sitting in beautiful surroundings with an amazing panorama. Then you are treated to a menu of fresh, natural ingredients, hand made to order.


The music will be retro and calming, expect some tracks you haven’t heard for years along with the best of more recent music.

There is free WIFI and breakfast is included in the price of an overnight stay.

What about the WINTER Time?

In the Winter Centauera is warm and cosy. There is canvas to keep the wind out and a toasty log fire to keep you warm. The perfect retreat for a Sunday Brunch or a meal whatever the time of year.

The photos and video below were taken in December 2018.  A chilly windy afternoon but we got there late afternoon and stayed through dusk until the evening. The log fire was piled high, we were protected from the wind and the lights twinkled and created a warm and cosy atmosphere. Just perfect!

There you have the magical Centauera Boutique Hotel.

If our description hasn’t made you want to visit – then maybe the fact that they have maintained Booking.com and Trip Adviser scores of 9.5 – 9.8 consistently over the past three years will tell you what you can expect.

Such high scores are incredibly difficult to achieve let along maintain and the only matters which have prevented 10/10 scores happen to be issues that are not matters in the direct control of the owner and even those issues have been taken on board.

You do not have to be resident to enjoy the restaurant

This place is ideal for breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.

It is a perfect treat for an occasional overnight stay in Alanya for an anniversary or special celebration.

If you are visiting Alanya then we can offer the highest recommendation for the hotel  and be 100% sure you will be well looked after by the host and his wife.

Please browse through the photos, ask us if you have any questions or want us to help arrange something for you.

We can also arrange for members of WE LOVE MAHMUTLAR group to enjoy a free pick up to the hotel if you do not have transport.
