Set high above the coast for the most mesmerising views, yet still within walking distance of Kalkan’s sophisticated little centre, the Korsan Suites are unique within our collection, combining all the generous space and facilities of a stylish apartment with the service of a luxury hotel. The apart-hotel concept is first class in both design and execution; each suite is laid out over two floors to maximise the sea views, best enjoyed from your private Jacuzzi with a glass of something chilled from your fridge. The two-floor layout lends an extra dimension of privacy, ideal if you’re travelling with older children or teenagers who love the freedom of having Kalkan and its beach clubs less than 15 minutes away on foot. And if you’ve got little ones with unpredictable appetites, or big ones that never stop snacking, having your own kitchen makes life easy for everyone.
Self-catering is entirely optional of course; daily breakfast by the main pool is included for all our guests, and the marvellous Memduh and his team run an excellent restaurant on the premises. Once you’ve settled in and got your bearings, Kalkan beckons with a tempting choice of waterfront cafés and rooftop restaurants, many offering highly creative menus that fuse local ingredients with international inspiration to great effect. For a taste of traditional Turkey, you might also like to try your hand at bartering for a souvenir or two in the local markets.
Design and location are what bring many visitors to the Korsan Suites, but what makes them come back year after year is the truly exceptional service from manager Memduh and the whole team. With an impressive 5-star TripAdvisor rating and a very loyal following of guests, Korsan Suites are the perfect embodiment of Turkish hospitality that extends to couples, groups and families of all ages.

Wonderful stay as ever. Mete and the whole team looked after us really well in difficult circumstances when we were left as the only guests in our second week due to the Covid-19 situation in the UK. We love the Korsan Suites – they are in a perfect location and well-appointed and the staff are fabulous. Kitty, the Simpson rep, is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We hope to return again next year.
Carolyn & Andy Mackinnon-Ure – September 2020
Fantastic accommodation! So much space and everything you need. Views from the balconies are amazing when lazing in your own Jacuzzi! Lovely pool too and often were there on our own. Staff were fantastic as was the food. Thank you Mete and Seref and all the other staff for a great week!
Lesley Booth – September 2020
A fantastic holiday – could not be faulted. The Korsan Suites are in a beautiful location with stunning views across Kalkan and ideally situated for an easy stroll into the town centre. The suites provide the best of both worlds with your own private space as well as the option to use the communal pool. Breakfast is provided with the option to have lunch and dinner in your own suite or in the restaurant area. All in all, a fantastic holiday. We will hopefully return soon.
Julia Rawson – September 2020
If ever a holiday was needed it was this year and as ever it did not disappoint! The Korsan Suites, as always, offer a very friendly welcome where nothing is too much trouble to help make your holiday a special one. The setting is superb with undisturbed views out to sea and the beautiful town of Kalkan. We were sad to leave but left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated and ready to plan a return trip. Thank you to everyone at Simpson Travel and The Korsan Suites.
Suzanne & Jack Prince – August 2020
A very special place to stay – beautifully appointed, stunning location and first class hospitality. The Korsan team are extremely professional but do everything with warmth and good humour. Kitty and Vicky are excellent representatives of the Simpson Travel brand – knowledgeable, super friendly and altogether lovely, helpful people. Bowled over by Kalkan – such a brilliant blend of chilled days by the sea and sophisticated, vibrant evenings. Perfect for all, but amazing for families with teens. One of our best holidays ever – and during a pandemic! Good work Simpson Travel.
Camilla, Gordon, Grace & Lily – August 2020
Wonderful first holiday with Simpson Travel and we were very impressed. I cannot speak highly enough of Kitty, Memdhu and the rest of the staff at the Korsan Suites. My partner says it’s the best service he has received. Kalkan is a beautiful resort and we met some lovely people. We will definitely holiday with Simpson again.
Petula & Fred – October 2019
Everything was well organised, from being picked up with the private transfer which was nice without being cramped and no fuss, space, air conditioning, water or wine on ice was a real nice touch, further the greeting at the hotel was very warm by Memduh and the amazing team behind him. I cannot rate Memduh as front of house manager highly enough, he ensured everything was taken care of and was very knowledgeable about the area too. The quality of the suites were excellent, very clean, modern and suited our needs. The breakfast and service was excellent, serviced by a hard working team, also the representative from Simpson was very professional (Kitty) and on hand should you need any tips on how to get around the local region. Special notes that the team went out of their way to accommodate us in every way which was very worthy and appreciated especially as we had our elderly parents with us, we are grateful. We will use Simpson Travel again based on our first experience and we look forward to booking something special next year.
Richard & Tracey – October 2019
Our second holiday with Simpson Travel and once again, everything was as described. The team at Korsan Suites are wonderful – nothing is too much trouble and they know how to deliver an excellent service. The suites are very well equipped and immaculate, with the most amazing views. Including the gulet trip and Hamam is an excellent touch and a fabulous experience for all.
The Wilmott family – October 2019
The holiday experience at Korsan Suites was different from that of our normal hotel and villa holiday but one that we really enjoyed and will be considering it again for the future. The quality of the overall staff service, accommodation and facilities was excellent.
Carol & Colin – September 2019
S – synonymous with quality. I- Inspired locations. M – Made for the discerning traveller. P – Personal touch. S – so much to do. O – of good repute. N – None better.
Mrs T – September 2019
The Korsan Suites was a stylish, intimate place to stay. The suite was excellent with wonderful views over the bay. The service was second to none with nothing too much trouble. We felt very welcome and very much at home! The location was pleasingly near to the buzzy town of Kalkan with its amazing array of restaurants.
Vanessa Young – September 2019
My wife is already trying to book for next year! The hotel standards were superb but the manager made the experience special, a very warm and welcoming environment in which to relax. A short 10-15 minute walk into town and then a £2.50 taxi home again. The split level room meant enough space for adults and children with the much need excellent air conditioning!
Darren & Emma Baker – August 2019
We had a wonderful holiday at Korsan Suites. Our suite was delightful and was kept spick and span by the Korsan staff. The service given was without fault, friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended!
Rob & Julia – August 2019
Korsan Suites are spacious and beautifully positioned to enjoy the views and the lovely town of Kalkan. The staff are very friendly and really go out of their way to make sure your holiday is as wonderful as possible. The trip on the Poseidon, the hotel gulet, was a real highlight of the holiday. The whole holiday was excellent value for money.
S Mackenzie – August 2019
Korsan Suites not only fulfilled our expectations, but far exceeded them on every level – from the accommodation itself to the exceptional charming team who work at the property and made our stay such an enjoyable and relaxing experience.
Mrs A Davies – August 2019
We had a wonderful fortnight. We were so impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation. Memduh, the manager, and his team are such wonderful hosts and really look after you during your stay with endless tips and suggestions of where to eat, what trips to do also supported by Kitty, the very knowledgeable Simpson rep. The saltwater pool was lovely and the Jacuzzi on the balcony was a real hit with the teens. The view from the Suites is just beautiful day and night. The boat trip on Poseidon was a real treat too. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
The Osborne family – August 2019
We never tire of our visits to Korsan Suites despite this being our fourth stay. It feels like coming home albeit with a much superior view, much better weather and a distinct lack of housekeeping issues to attend to! We truly are treated to a beautiful setting with such a welcoming and attentive team. Every year we are sad to leave but content in the knowledge we will be returning very soon. Thanks Memduh and team ...... you make it a truly very special place. See you soon.
Suzanne & Jack Prince – August 2019
Our stay at Korsan Suites was our first visit to Kalkan and Turkey, and we're already itching to return! From the minute we arrived Memduh and his team's hospitality made us feel relaxed. During our stay nothing was too much trouble and they were always on hand to help. Kitty was also an amazing rep and helped with any queries we had. The Korsan Suites themselves were spacious and very comfortable, with wonderful views and very well equipped if you wanted to cook in. We did that rarely as the town was a short taxi journey and had so many excellent eateries to choose from.
Mrs Leonie Edwards – July 2019
What a wonderful holiday at Korsan Suites. The attention to detail was fabulous and the service levels were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for Memduh and his staff. Memduh is one of the friendliest and caring hosts we have ever come across and we will definitely return because of him! It was great that Kitty was around most mornings if we had any questions and she gave us good recommendations for places to go and trips, restaurants, etc. The Hamam was a good experience and the boat trip on Poseidon was a lovely day out too. Thanks you Simpson Travel (and especially Memduh!).
Mena Duggins – July 2019
We had a fantastic holiday at Korsan suites with our two children. The Korsan apartments are very well designed and extremely comfortable. Great air conditioning and the beds were great. Memduh and his team were fantastically friendly and couldn't do enough to help, the children loved them and they made our lives easy. Kalkan is lovely and there is plenty to do.
Mr Price – July 2019
I can't say enough about the kindness, friendliness and professionalism of Memduh and his team. They remembered little things I didn't even know I needed, like making sure I had goggles for my beach trip. The venue is perfect in both view and design. We will definitely be making return trips in the future.
Mr J Fry – July 2019
Memduh and his team are just fantastic and look after your every need. The location is stunning and Korsan Suites provide an excellent balance of privacy but inclusion. I am not surprised that many guests return every year. It is a ‘Turkish Delight’ worth experiencing.
Simpson Traveller – July 2019
We absolutely loved our time at Korsan Suites – fabulous, spacious apartments and everything was so easy we totally relaxed very quickly. Kitty was a fantastic rep and we look forward to booking with Simpson Travel for our next sun holiday.
Mrs Scott – July 2019
Second time at Korsan Suites and still absolutely love it. Kalkan is gorgeous and Simpson is extremely efficient. The staff at Korsan Suites were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I love that view! Can't wait to go back again.
Mrs Green – June 2019
It's not the good location and accommodation, or the great views that make the Korsan Suites so special, it's the people. Manager Memduh and his team, together with your local representative Kitty, have made our most recent visit really superb.
Mr & Mrs Younger – June 2019
This was my second visit to Korsan Suites and most certainly won’t be my last. Memdah and his team made us extremely welcome and we felt very much at home there. This was my sixth experience of a Simpson holiday and all have been excellent.
Janet Ward – June 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the Korsan Suites, the views were wonderful as were the welcome and kindness we received from Memduh and his team. Nothing was too much trouble for them and this truly added to the enjoyment of our holiday. Kitty our representative was also extremely helpful and efficient.
Christine Mann & Stephen Bishop – June 2019
Our second visit to Korsan Suites. The manager, Memduh ,is just the best – he is helpful, kind, considerate and fun. The apartments provide a real holiday home with the advantages of hotel service. I spent time on the outdoor sofas in the shade doing my sewing, my idea of heaven!
Deborah Sanders – June 2019
Our second holiday with Simpson and we will definitely be back. Everything was well managed from booking to departure flight. All the Simpson staff we encountered were friendly and professional. Thank you for making our family holiday special.
Sue H – June 2019
This was our third visit to the Korsan Suites. It was just as we remembered it and although 8 years old it is clearly very well maintained as it felt much newer. As always Memduh, the manager was brilliant, the chef cooked lovely food and the cleaners always did their best to accommodate us and our baby who always seemed to be sleeping whenever they wanted to clean our suite.
Mr J Brand – June 2019
We had a fantastic week at Korsan Suites. The accommodation is of a high standard, the pool area very good, and the breakfast excellent. But it's the service from Memduh and his team that elevates the experience – they go out of their way to make your stay as special as possible.
Jane Walton – June 2019
A huge thank you to Memduh and all the staff for making our holiday so special. It is our first, but definitely not our last visit to Kalkan. What an amazing place. We will take back many fabulous memories from our week and look forward to returning to make more.
Geoff, Karen & Callum – May 2019
We have absolutely loved our first trip to Kalkan and an incredible stay at Korsan Suites. We will miss it so much but will be back in 2020.
Mike, Helen, Alexander & Rory – May 2019
What a wonderful holiday. Many thanks to Memduh and the fantastic team - they were all so helpful and friendly. Simpson Travel promised luxury and delivered. The breakfasts were amazing – especially the pancakes.
Andy, Sarah, Charlie & Sophie – May 2019
The whole KS team have been fantastic – extremely welcoming and attentive. We will miss the view, the breakfasts, the call to prayer, the friendliest restaurants in the world. We have loved our week and only wish it could have been longer. This is a very special place with very special people running it.
Christy, Jonathan & Jane – May 2019
Thank you so much for the most perfect holiday. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so relaxed! The view from the rooms is so beautiful and very single member of staff has been so kind and welcoming.
Sophie Elvin – May 2019
I cannot recommend Simpson Travel highly enough. They understand what customer service really means and exceed expectations in their delivery. Thank you to everyone who played a part in my recent holiday to Kalkan. You helped to make it the perfect week!
Mrs Robinson – May 2019
The suites were beautiful. Amazing sea views and a fabulous size apartment. Location to town was very good. Boat trip on the Poseidon was fabulous! Memduh was an excellent manager and we will definitely be returning to Kalkan and Korsan Suites in the future.
Miss See – May 2019
It was our first stay at the Korsan Suites and we're glad to have chosen wisely. It was an excellent experience. The location, staff and suites are superb. Most of the other guests had stayed there previously. I would highly recommend Kalkan and the Korsan Suites.
Mark – October 2018
Another lovely holiday at the Korsan Suites. I'm really not sure what it is that makes this place so special, almost all the other guests there were on at least their second visit (some were on their sixth visit!). It is very peaceful, with beautiful views of Kalkan and the apartments are lovely and spacious, but the extra ingredient has to be the manager Memduh. He is so kind and helpful, nothing is too much trouble and his staff are all lovely. It is a perfect little oasis for a tranquil holiday in Kalkan.
Prudence O’Gorman – October 2018
Reading other reviews of the Korsan Suites it is difficult to disagree with anything contained within them. Everything about this place is top notch. I will however make mention of a couple of things. 1) Simpson staff at Gatwick and at Dalaman were easily recognisable and well situated so the process was quick and efficient. 2) The Simpson representative at the Korsan Suites, Kirsti, was without doubt the best holiday representative we have ever had. She was always available, not pushy or trying to sell us anything (this is usually the reason we avoid rep meetings on other holidays we have had). She has a very pleasant and outgoing personality, very knowledgeable and extremely helpful and is a great credit to the company. 3)The staff at the Korsan Suites led by Memduh were excellent in all regards. 4) This is the first holiday we have taken with Simpson Travel and will not be the last.
Mr & Mrs Newcombe – October 2018
We usually ‘go it alone’ when booking holidays. However, our experience with Simpson Travel has truly converted us. Value for money and amazing service from beginning to end, made for one of the best holidays we've ever had. Why make life difficult when it should be a breeze?
Mrs W – October 2018
An excellent experience from initial call to booking. The service is faultless and extremely professional. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone we dealt with. The Korsan Suites are fantastic we felt so relaxed and welcome as soon as we arrived and Memduh and his team were helpful and attentive at all times. We will definitely return.
Mrs S Revett – October 2018
Korsan Suites are just all round perfection mainly thanks to Memduh and his wonderful team and their great position in Kalkan.
D. Saunders – September 2018
Our Korsan Suites experience was truly outstanding, what a find.
Dorothy Begley – September 2018
Memdou is an exceptional host! Ramazan and Kirsti gave a very personal service. The other team members also were very obliging; working hard behind the scenes to ensure our holiday experience was faultless. From the welcome received to the team waving us off in a taxi, it was just wonderful and heart-warming. The location and accommodation are exquisite. Food served in the suite or in the town was amazing. Would we return? Oh yes, especially in the hope the same team will be involved in running the place.
Mr & Mrs Bright – September 2018
We have just spent two weeks at The Korsan Suites in Kalkan. They are ideally located in a quiet area just outside of the main centre and provide immaculate and spacious accommodation with great views over the bay. The team at Korsan are exceptional and cannot do enough to make your stay memorable. Kalkan is a friendly resort with excellent restaurants. Do go, you will not be disappointed.
Mr Davison – September 2018
We have just returned from The Korsan Suites in Kalkan. It was my husband’s and my second visit. This time our daughter and family, including two children joined us. We had a three-bedroom suite which was perfect for all the family. High chair and baby cot, along with a stair gate that had been fitted for us – super! Memdou and all of the team were as great as ever, and nothing was too much trouble. The welcome meal was delicious; the chocolate pudding was absolutely divine. For breakfast do give the bacon a try, it is extra, but very tasty. We went to Patara Beach for the sunset, as recommended by Kirsti, our Simpson travel representative. Stunning! Memdou provided a cool box along with a parasol. We thoroughly enjoyed the Turkish bath and the trip on the Poseidon. Thank you again to Memdou and team, not forgetting Kirsti, who is always on hand to help. A fabulous holiday in a fabulous location and accommodation.
Steve, Tina, Lisa & Stephen – September 2018
Thanks to the Simpson Travel team and all at the Korsan Suites for yet another fabulous holiday. It was our third time there and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect holiday. We arrived with high expectations, our holiday did not disappoint. Thank you – we will be rebooking again very soon!
Suzanne Prince – August 2018
This was our first visit to Turkey and to The Korsan Suites and it definitely won't be our last either. The Korsan Suites are wonderful, but the manager Memduh and his team make your stay at Korsan exceptional. I can't recommend them highly enough. We loved every aspect of our holiday from the luxurious transfers to the helpfulness of Kirsti, our Simpson Travel representative. Kalkan is beautiful, and although busy, has a really relaxed and happy vibe. Every meal we had in Turkey was beyond our expectations and we rolled home fat, but happy! The boat trip was a real highlight and the Hamam was a lovely added bonus. Thank you Simpson Travel and thank you Memduh!
Mrs Kelly – August 2018
The Korsan Suites are beautifully maintained with excellent facilities, commanding views and truly outstanding service. The staff go out of their way to make you welcome without ever being intrusive.
David – July 2018
From the moment I booked this holiday it has been a seamless experience. It was without doubt an amazing location and the Korsan Suites are perfectly furnished. The air-conditioning was very welcome and between this, the Jacuzzi and the pool it was easy to stay cool. The hotel manager, Memduh, could not have been more attentive and helpful and his team were so friendly. There are stunning views and it’s close to the harbour when you want a bit more hustle and bustle. This is the perfect spot to just relax and we are already looking into when we can go back.
Mrs Nevin – July 2018
We had a fantastic time at The Korsan Suites. It exceeded our expectations and all the staff were so helpful! Thank you Simpson Travel.
Mrs Warrington – June 2018
Our whole holiday experience, from the first phone call to the return to the UK after a wonderful week in Kalkan, was second to none. Memduh at the Korsan Suites somehow manages always to be attentive and interesting and is a real joy. His greeting, as he showed us to our apartment, was a ‘welcome back home’, which is exactly what our suite immediately became (but with a significantly better view than we have at home!). Kirsti, the Simpson Travel representative’s visits were really appreciated, as we were able to glean information from her considerable knowledge of the local area, and the little touches were very thoughtful. Korsan Suites gives an exceptional holiday experience; with just eight suites it is small enough to meet your fellow holidaymakers quickly and easily, but gives you space in your apartment and on the private balconies to be away from others if that is what the moment calls for. This was our first holiday with Simpson Travel; next time we’re planning a trip we will know to come immediately to you, in the certain knowledge we will have a superb holiday to look forward to.
Ken & Karen Johnston – Suite 5 – June 2018
The whole Korsan team were absolutely brilliant. Memduh was outstanding and such a lovely guy. Nothing was too much trouble. The whole experience at the Korsan Suites resulted in it being one of the best holidays we have ever had. Kirsti, the Simpson Travel representative, also deserves a mention, she was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. All in all we could not fault a thing, and the view from our balconies (yes more than one!) were breathtaking. The private Jacuzzi was also a lovely bonus and got used every day. We would recommend this holiday to anyone and we will definitely return.
Mr & Mrs Miller – Suite 8 – June 2018
Just an amazing place and experience.
Rachel – May 2018
We have not used Simpson Travel before but the quality of the service and the attention to detail is exceptional. It is clear that a good deal of thought has gone into what is required to make a relaxing holiday, we were very impressed and will certainly book again.
Mr Brewer – October 2017
This has been our second visit to the Korsan Suites this year. Again we have had a wonderful holiday. The service provided by your Kalkan representative Kirsti, Manager Memduh, Chef Ahmed, Housekeepers Zafer and Huriye has again been absolutely excellent.
Mrs Younger – October 2017
Spent a wonderfully relaxing two weeks at the Korsan Suites and couldn't fault it in any way. The team led by Memduh were friendly and helpful –nothing too much trouble. Would definitely recommend it.
Mrs Lovett – September 2017
We cannot speak too highly of the team at the Korsan Suites. Memduh is quite extraordinary. The accommodation is fabulous. We had a great holiday. Thank you.
Mrs Buckland – September 2017
We cannot recommend enough the first class service of the Simpson Travel team and the quality of our holiday at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan. A perfect retreat in a beautiful setting made extra special by the wonderful staff there. We cannot wait to return again very soon.
Mrs Prince – September 2017
The Korsan Suites were idyllic – beautiful location and fabulous accommodation which made a very relaxing holiday. Kalkan town, a 15-minute walk away, with its many lovely restaurants was perfect.
Mrs Lorkin – September 2017
We had a fantastic family holiday at Korsan Suites in Kalkan with kids aged 16, 14 and 11. The accommodation was so comfortable and well appointed and the service from Memduh and his team was first class. The food was excellent and the place was spotless. Kalkan itself is lovely with endless restaurants and bars. The whole trip was effortless and so relaxing. There are plenty of boat trips and culture/sightseeing if you want to be busy but we spent more time than expected in the accommodation, around the pool as it was just so nice. Hopefully we'll be back at some point to explore further and enjoy a relaxing break.
Mrs Evans – September 2017
We cannot recommend Korsan Suites highly enough – convenient location, excellent facilities, magnificent view and the most amazing team, led by Memduh, there to anticipate our every need. Holiday heaven!
Mr Ellis – August 2017
My family of 5 (aged children 18,15,12) stayed at the Korsan Suites for two weeks in Kalkan and had the most fantastic holiday. The suites were immaculate and cleaned every day. The breakfasts were delicious especially the pancakes! The host, Memduh, made our holiday as nothing was too much trouble and he seemed to anticipate our every need. We loved Kalkan with its beach clubs, mesmerising sea, fantastic boat trips and pretty town with its roof top restaurants. We would definitely return.
Mrs Ake – August 2017
Second time to Kalkan. Would go again. Staff simply amazing, and worked 18-hour days, every day without a break. Quite extraordinary dedication. A most warm and friendly atmosphere and Kalkan itself quite delightful. All the restaurants are excellent and, by British standards, almost 'cheap'!
Mr Iles – August 2017
The Korsan Suites are a delight. Roomy, well designed, very comfortable and with outstanding views. Great kitchen facilities for self-catering. The shared pool and lounging area are great and the bar and food service were very good indeed. Of particular note are the staff. Memduh runs the place with great expertise and is friendly, patient and extremely knowledgeable. The chef is excellent, producing lovely breakfasts, barbecues and a good à la carte menu. We were also very impressed by the discreet housekeepers who always waited until we had left the hotel before cleaning our suite. With plenty to do in the area and a relaxing base to return to we have had a great holiday. Many thanks.
Mr Jeffrey – July 2017
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We have had the most wonderful holiday and leave Korsan Suites heavy-hearted but feeling relaxed and rejuvenated thanks to the excellent care everyone has taken of us. Zafer and Huriye have ensured that both our apartment and the rest of the property have been beautifully maintained, Ahmet's kitchen has kept us fabulously fed at any moment, Volkan and Emirhan have waited on us beautifully and Memduh has been truly magnificent! Nothing has been too much trouble for anyone and we are truly grateful. Here's to planning our next visit.....
Vanessa, Mike, Thea and Polly July 2017
A fantastic holiday and a first class level of service from the moment I booked! Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be using Simpson Travel for future holidays.
Mrs Thompson – June 2017
Korsan Suites are lovely, in a wonderful location, staff amazing, Memduh in particular but all of the staff lovely – can't do enough for you – the rep always available and very knowledgeable about the area. A wonderful holiday and we will be back yet again.
Mrs Harper – June 2017
This was our first stay at Korsan Suites – and what a pleasure it was! Memduh and the rest of the team were angels, nothing was too much trouble – even dealing with couple of unwelcome spiders on our balcony! The pancakes at breakfast are to die for. Fantastic location and facilities. We will certainly be back.
Miss Frackiewicz – June 2017
First time in Turkey at Korsan Suites, Kalkan – beautiful place, immaculate, fabulous views, credit to the manager (Memduh) and his staff, Kalkan so many restaurants, fantastic food, friendly people, so much to do.The market, boat trips and everyone made us feel welcome.
Mr Curnin-Waterson – June 2017
Our stay at the Korsan Suites was enhanced by Memduh and the team, nothing is too much trouble and they work hard to make your stay extremely relaxing. The Suites are superb – spacious and comfortable. They are situated in a stunning peaceful location with views that are very pleasing to the eye. We also want to thank Kirsti for her friendly professionalism. Thank you all so much for a super holiday and we look forward to returning.
Steve & Tina – May 2017
This has been our fifth visit to the Korsan Suites over the past few years. We have had another wonderful holiday. The level of service from your representative Kirsti, the manager Memduh, chef Ahmed, housekeepers Zafer and Huriye has again been absolutely excellent.
Mrs Younger – May 2017
My two teenage children and I have had a wonderful week in Kalkan at Korsan Suites. It was the most relaxing and stunning holiday we could have wished for. Impeccably clean rooms, incredible views, wonderful staff, great food, plenty to do and see and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. Our apartment at Korsan Suites was spacious, very well equipped, and had two big balconies with incredible views – we really enjoyed having our own Jacuzzi/plunge pool. It was the last week of the holiday season in this area and we were blessed with perfect weather. Thank you so much Simpson Travel, we will be back for more...
Mrs Goddard – October 2016
Overall one of the best holidays we have ever had on a one-week sun break. Accommodation was an excellent standard, well chosen and run. This was our first use of Simpson Travel and we have been very impressed by all aspects of this holiday, we will almost certainly think to use you again as we had a very stress free experience this time, and that is what holidays are meant to be about.
Mr Whittle – October 2016
The Korsan Suites are in an excellent location being a 15-minute walk (3-minute taxi ride!) from town. They offer a beautiful view over the bay which I never tire of. Memduh and his team work tirelessly to ensure that the only thing you need to worry about is whether to relax in the sun or dip in the pool. The suites are kept spotless by Zafar and Huriye. Kalkan itself is a jewel of a resort that also offers some of the best food in the Mediterranean. We have been coming on and off over the last 20 years and have spent the last six at the Korsan Suites. The Simpson Travel representative, Kirsti, is always available for any help or advice to ensure that your holiday runs like clockwork. If you want somewhere to wind down then look no further.
Mr Shipp – September 2016
Simpson Travel offers a first class service from start to end. The standard of service, accommodation cannot be beaten and nothing is too much trouble. Can't wait for next year. Thank you for making our 2016 holiday very special.
Mrs Radley – September 2016
This was our third stay at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan and it is a firm favourite with us. The rooms are excellent, with large comfortable accommodation and breathtaking views from your private balconies. We stayed in one of the two-bedroom suites on the upper floors and nothing quite beats sitting in your personal Jacuzzi in the heat of the day and watching the boats coming and going in the bay below. The staff are really friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make your holiday special from start to finish. We will definitely be back again!
Mr Dowty – June 2016
Another wonderful holiday with Simpson Travel, giving us memories that we will treasure forever. Our children had the most fabulous time, which makes it an even more relaxing time for us as parents – even with a one-year old toddler!
Mrs White – May 2016
The Korsan Suites are everything they cracked up to be on the Simpson Travel website – breathtaking situation and very well appointed. But it is the staff who work there – from the manager through to the cleaners – who really make the place special. They are alert to every need but without any stiff formality – simply excellent service delivered in a very friendly way.
Ms Stewart – September 2015
Korsan Suites is one of the best holiday places we have stayed in.The apartments are beautifully appointed, the views stunning, and the staff cannot do enough for you. Please don't let Memduh leave!
Mr Potter – September 2015
First time that we have used Simpson Travel and probably the best holiday we have ever had. Everything was flawless. No hiccups whatsoever.
Mr Williams – August 2015
Our Korsan Suites holiday in Turkey was amazing. The choice of accommodation and the booking itself were all faultless and easy thanks to the lovely staff at Simpson. Korsan Suites is breathtaking with stunning views over Kalkan bay. The staff at Korsan Suites couldn't be more courteous and helpful and the property is spotlessly clean. You don't want for anything. It is a luxury venue but without any pretension. Every need is catered for allowing one to instantly relax. I highly recommend it. The only sad part is when you have to leave. I will definitely return.
Mrs Drummond – July 2015
This was our first holiday in Turkey, and we had the most amazing time. Everyone at the Korsan Suites was so friendly and helpful, particularly Memduh and Mehmet. Our children are now older – aged 14, 16 and 18 – and we found that there was something for everyone to enjoy. We did boat trips, tours to historical sites, the gorge, and ate out most nights. We have been to Greece, France, Italy, Spain, the Caribbean, etc but this was our first time in Turkey and we all had a brilliant time. We were really impressed with the transfers to and from the airport, and will definitely book with Simpson Travel again as our experience was so good.
Mrs Saer – July 2015
We have just returned from a week at Korsan Suites, Kalkan, Turkey. Thank you to Simpson Travel and Korsan for a fantastic holiday. The accommodation was fantastic, the views superb and the service and friendliness of the local staff faultless. It was a truly memorable holiday and will be very hard to beat. We will certainly be using Simpson Travel again.
Mr Carpenter – July 2015
This was our first time travelling with Simpson Travel and have to say this was probably the best holiday ever. The Korsan Suites in Kalkan were superb, the views fantastic, and the staff Memduh, chef Ahmet and Mehmet were all brilliant. The cleaners were very unobtrusive and very efficient. Kirsti, the rep, was great and very helpful and knowledgeable, the whole holiday was a wonderful experience, we have already booked with Simpson Travel to Turkey next year.
Mrs Daly – June 2015
Simpson Travel add an extra touch to a holiday and only use the very best places to stay. All your staff are very helpful and pleasing.We have travelled with this company for several years and have always enjoyed our holidays, thank you.
Mrs Bray – May 2015
Just wonderful – clean, friendly, relaxing and extremely well run. This was our first Simpson Travel holiday but IT won’t be our last. Korsan Suites is perfect if you want a quiet, laidback holiday in spacious well-equipped apartments. Just a short walk from the bars and restaurants but very peaceful. We will be back.
Chris & Nick – Suite 6 – June 2018
Just returned from Turkey where I had a fabulous, relaxing week. First time with Simpson Travel and very impressed with the professional staff – everything was arranged (boarding cards, etc) without having to chase, and both legs of the journey were seamless. The accommodation was spotless and spacious, very well appointed in a great location. The staff were faultless. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simpson Travel to anyone wanting a hassle-free holiday experience.
Ms Jamieson – May 2015
We booked Korsan Suites as a first taste of a Turkish Holiday. We were stunned by the incredible tranquility, magical location, and superb welcome by Memduh and his team. We really hadn't anticipated how amazing the atmosphere would be – instant relaxation – the only sound was the haunting call to pray from the minarets – just wonderful. Breakfast by the pool every morning was a joy, and the staff were like part of the family. Stunning immaculately clean suites – better than the photos. Kirsti, the rep, was fabulous, and always on hand for advice and tips. Highly recommended – can't wait to go back next year!!
Ms Crick – October 2014
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Korsan Suites. Memduh and the staff were all amazing. Extremely luxurious accommodation – extremely clean and comfortable. The views are breathtaking. We have been travelling to Kalkan for over 14 years and this is the best place we have stayed at and we have been to the top hotels in Kalkan including The Regency and the Likya...
Miss Gorecki – September 2014
Stayed at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan, excellent holiday from booking to transfer back to the airport at the end of the holiday, all went really well, no problems, no worries. Just as a holiday should be. Very simple but some companies cannot achieve it!
Mr Pooley – September 2014
As many other customers have said, this was the first time we have traveled with Simpson Travel but I'm sure it won't be the last. We felt well-looked after throughout and the exclusive-to-Simpson accommodation was first class. Excellent service and well worth paying that little bit extra.
Ms Coombs – September 2014
A thoroughly enjoyable stay (again) at the Korsan Suites.
Mr Beauclerk – September 2014
Such a lovely place to go and relax in the sunshine. The resort was perfect for older families as there was something to do that suited everyone. The accommodation was beautiful, simple, luxurious and spotlessly clean. The staff were so kind and thoughtful. We were treated like individuals, not just one of the herd. A fantastic high quality service from booking to returning home. Thank you.
Mr McGill – July 2014
We've just come back from the most amazing two-week stay at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan. Memduh and the staff were more than helpful and couldn't have done anymore to accomodate us (Ramazan – I love the pancakes!). We had a three-bedroom suite which was absolutely gorgeous with a fully equipped kitchen. The views across the bay were to die for and having your own Jacuzzi was a bonus!. All in all we had the most fantastic holiday and are already planning on going back next year. Thanks Kirsti (our rep), Memduh and all the staff at Korsan Suites.
Mrs McGill – July 2014
I have to say that Korsan Suites staff are excellent. We have stayed at some lovely hotels and the subtle approach to quality service was wonderful. Kirsti was really helpful and always there if you needed her. This is the first time we have travelled with Simpson Travel but I am certain it will not be the last. Everything from the welcome by the taxi driver with a small gift, water and towels to being seen off by the hotel staff made us feel like five-star guests at all times. Thank you for sourcing and providing us with a fantastic holiday!
Mrs Eason – July 2014
A wonderful travel experience from the minute we booked, to arriving at the airport and the actual location. A relaxing experience.
Mr Mercieca – June 2014
Another enjoyable and memorable stay at Korsan Suites, Kalkan. Excellent facilities, friendly and knowledgeable staff, beautiful location.
Mrs Robinson – June 2014
With the Simpson Travel checking in desk at the airport, the fleet of new white cars on arrival in Turkey and helpful reps, our holiday got off to an easy start. It just got better as we met the staff at the Korsan Suites who made our holiday fantastic. They were so friendly and helpful. A lovely place to stay, and Kalkan itself is a vibrant and fun place to eat out with so many great restaurants to choose from. I would definitely recommend staying in Kalkan and the Korsan Suites, having hotel facilities but with the privacy of your own apartment, has the best of both worlds.
Mr Doherty – May 2014
Everything about the holiday was perfect. The suites were gorgeous with breathtaking views of the coast and the staff in the hotel did everything they could to make us welcome. Kalkan is a lovely town, full of rooftop restaurants, every one with a sea view. A special mention for Memduh, our hotel manager who kept the children entertained and even offered to find one of the local tortoises!
Mrs White – May 2014
Thank you so much to Emme and the staff at Korsan Suites – her insight into Turkey and the food, wine and area was really helpful. We had such a lovely time exploring the ancient Lycian sites, travelling up into the hills and relaxing on Patara beach in the afternoons. The Turkish cuisine was a revelation and we had excellent food and local wine. It was a perfect tonic to face the winter months in England. I hope Simpson Travel will still use the Korsan Suites as we would love to go again.
Mrs Garland – October 2013
Had the best holiday, Kalkan is just such a wonderful place to go, great food, accommodation, friendly people, just FAB. Didn't want to come home.
Mrs Harris – October 2013
Our first time in Turkey and the Korsan Suites, Kalkan did not disappoint. Positioned to the west of the bay we felt secluded but it was only a 15-minute walk to the Old Town. The evening we arrived, we were treated to the most amazing Turkish meal, a real plus. The two-bedroom suite was very spacious and our only regret was not being able to use the Jacuzzi as the weather had turned unseasonably cold. As a famous film once said "We will be back".
Mr Hyde – September 2013
This was the second time we have travelled with Simpson Travel and we remain entirely impressed. The level of care and consideration we received after news arrived of a serious family illness back in the UK was excellent.
Mr Norwell – September 2013
Fantastic holiday, great suites, just far enough from the main town, lovely staff.
Mr Christie – September 2013
We have just returned from a wonderful two-week stay at the glorious Korsan Suites in Kalkan. Emine and her staff couldn't have been more helpful, and even gave us some spices and potatoes when my husband wanted to cook us his own version of Moussaka! The suites were beautifully presented and very well kitted out. Having your own kitchen was ideal, since it was wonderful to choose between going out to one of the hundreds of fantastic restaurants in Kalkan, or to eat in. I loved the small touches like having a large collection of books that you could borrow, or choose a good DVD to watch during an evening in. All in all we had the most fantastic holiday and have many marvellous memories, as well as nearly 1,000 photos. Thanks Simpson Travel, Emine and her team and Kirsti.
Mrs Thornton-Smith – September 2013
Another fantastic holiday, already looking for next year. We really like locations that do not need a car, and are self-catering with local shops for groceries. l have so enjoyed the hotel/self-catering combination. Hope to see more smaller properties as the villas are often too big.
Ms Hamlet – August 2013
This was our first time to Turkey and we had our reservations. How wrong we were!! The Korsan Suites in Kalkan were outstanding, the service provided by Emine and Ramazan was faultless. They could not do enough for us. The position of the apartments was ideal, just enough distance from the hustle and bustle but an easy walk in and taxi ride home (very cheap taxi, may I add!). We went for my father's 70th birthday celebrations and it was certainly a week to remember, thank you Simpson Travel!
Mrs Upton – August 2013
I would not hesitate to travel with Simpson Travel again, the service they offered and the excellent quality of accommodation at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan, was exceptionally good. The manager, staff and Simpson Travel rep made us very welcome and were so helpful, all the arrangements went very smoothly. The apartment and pool area were so luxurious and we all loved the view so much, we really didn't want to come home. Getting a taxi into the town (10 TL one-way) was easy and we didn't need a car, we also got a taxi to Kaş (140 TL rtn), you can walk into the old town and we tended to walk down and taxi back. Restaurants did get busy once the summer holidays started but Emine at the Korsan Suites can book a table for you and this would be necessary during busy times. Definitely recommended and we will go back!
Mrs Green – July 2013
We had a fabulous holiday with Simpson Travel. If you want to be sure of top quality accommodation and service you won't be disappointed.
Ms Roskilly – June 2013
We have just come back from another holiday in Kalkan at the fabulous Korsan Suites. As before, a wonderful holiday in an amazing location in luxurious accommodation. As always, Simpson Travel looked after us so well and ensured that the whole holiday was hassle-free and relaxed. Our only difficulty is trying to switch ourselves back on after two stress-free weeks away – though we have already re-booked for next year which helps!
Mr Potter – June 2013
The holiday exceeded all our expectations. The quality of the accommodation was fantastic and we were all made to feel very special.
Mrs Drury – May 2013
Quality experience with Simpson Travel. Fabulous accommodation and location at the Korsan Suites – thank you to Emine and her team for looking after us so well!
Mrs Lappin – May 2013
A wonderful holiday at the Korsan Suites at Kalkan, great manager in Emine and her staff – nothing was too much trouble and the fittings within the suites were of the highest quality and everything well maintained.
Mr Cameron – May 2013
I would have no hesitation in travelling with Simpson Travel again as I can be assured that their standards are what I have come to look for over the years with friendly helpful staff to help me on my way to the best holiday ever.
Mrs Harrison – May 2013
The staff were so welcoming on our arrival, the food was wonderful – cooked by Ahmed and his helper. Ramazan was a diamond, his attentiveness was one in a million. Emine, the manageress, makes the BEST mint lemonade I have ever tasted and no wish was too much for her. The suite was out of this world and the views stunning! If you are very lucky you will see one or two turtles lingering around at the back of the Korsan Suites. Overall, Kalkan is a lovely village, with breathtaking views over the harbour and we will only book with Simpson Travel!
Mr Gwilt – May 2013
From start to finish, we can only describe the service from Simpson Travel as five star. Malin was extremely helpful and every query was responded to quickly and effectively. The arrival and welcome at the airport in Dalaman was great, we felt very special when we were shown to our own private car for our transfer! The accommodation was out of this world! We cannot fault anything! Emine, the Manageress at the hotel gave us a personal welcome and showed us to our apartment. Our rep, Kirsti, was brilliant, very helpful and knowledgeable. We loved every minute of our holiday and will use Simpson Travel again! Thank you!
Mrs Dearing – May 2013
Very happy to recommend Simpson Travel – they care about providing a personal service for the whole of the holiday.
Mrs Davison – April 2013
Fabulous holiday in a beautiful relaxing location at the wonderful Korsan Suites.
Mrs Mason – April 2013
Our choice of Turkey properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.
To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
