Barut Kemer Resort

This hotel comes with a handful of à la carte restaurants and a great beach setting.

This hotel fits in nicely between mountains and the Med. The thin strip of private beach comes with loungers and its very own pier. If you want shops, bars and restaurants, Kemer’s centre is about 10 minutes’ walk away.

The dining scene is well set up with 6 restaurants – a buffet place and 5 à la cartes that feature everything from Turkish to Italian cuisine. Three pools include one with a trio of waterslides.

Relaxing weeks stay

Stayed as a couple for a week from 16th Oct. Agree with other reviews, it's a lovely hotel, spotless, room clean, spacious and very quiet , food in buffet restaurant good. Entertainment team a lovely bunch friendly without being invasive. We ate in 3 of the a la carte restaurants but here we felt they were not quite up to the standard we have had in some of the other 5 star hotels we have stayed in in Turkey, service in the Olive was very slow, maybe we were just unlucky. The Saffron food and service was very good and the Asian also good but at the other hotels the a la cartes have had a feel of being in a traditional restaurant for example the Turkish had the bright table cloths and in the Asian the waiters had a more traditional dress and Chinese decor, here the waiters just wore the same uniforms as in the buffet and the restaurant décor smart but nothing special, not a criticism just a suggestion. We had a lovely chilled out week and we would stay again but there were areas that we thought were better at some of the other hotels we have stayed in.. I guess if you could choose the best bits from each hotel you would have your ideal holiday!More

"...a relaxing time"

The hotel provided us with a very relaxing time during our stay. Being smaller than some of the hotels in the area added to a more intimate feel and the cleanliness and facilities were to be complimented. Apart from a few annoying niggles e.g. reserving of sunbeds, no teaspoons at breakfast, our overall experience was positive and we would recommend a stay at this hotel.More

Friendly hotel

I have just returned from The Bahrut Kemer Resort Hotel ,Kemer,Turkey, It was a most friendly hotel in a Good Area of Kemer,The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming, the hotel itself was well maintained,and the food was fairly good, I would expect rather more of a choice in the main resturant,being a Thompson Platingum Hotel a little dissapointing to say the least,the meals were of a caserole base every night with very little fish choices,and very little seafood options,I never saw a carved piece of meat at all only a rolled and stuffed option every night ,or casseroled options,with the exception of a roast chicken some nights, the chips were cooked to a Chrisp and I found the food quality a little poor dissapointing for a 5*hotel I have had better quality meals in other 5* hotels in Turkey ,the hotel itself was pleasant and well kept,and the staff were most helpful and friendly,I would use this hotel again but there are better 5*options in Turkey that I would rather return to far more enjoyable experiences.More

Best five star all inclusive we've ever been to!

Read all the reviews on Trip Advisor .. Have to say they all true. The hotel is in an excellent location. Lovely views of mountains and sea. The staff are all very helpful. The animation team are wonderful. Bar staff great, especially pool bar. Food very good. Al la carte restaurants especially nice. Our room the quietest we've ever had. Very comfortable. Manager always around checking. Free wi fi, free mini bar, free safe in rooms. Worth paying the extra for partial sea view. Our room was facing the pool as someone recommended. Evening entertainment better than usual .. Would definitely like to go back. Weather was mainly excellent for end of October. Sea great for swimming. Lots of sun beds everywhere. Lovely holiday. Very classy hotel.More

A wonderful holiday at Barut Kemer

We’ve just finished a one week holiday at this resort in the last week of October (just before it closes for the winter). The hotel is a very good addition to the Barut range, having been acquired last year and subsequently renovated. The customer service was second to none, with the management very visible at all times to respond to any problems. I’ve never been to a hotel where the staff are so keen to please and take time to just sit with you around the bars and chat – it’s a lovely touch. They even come together when you are leaving to see you off and wish you a safe journey home (and there’s a chef with a tray of baklava/other treats as you board the coach!). They also give you a CD of the music they play during the day around by the pool/bar (probably not to everyone’s taste however, certainly not mine!). The music isn't played all day long, but I know some people would find it a bit obtrusive - it didn't really bother us though. The transfer from the airport took around 50 mins-1hr and we stayed in a standard room which was clean and the room service came morning and evening to tidy/replace sheets and towels. There is also a minibar (included in the AI package) which was restocked daily with water, fizzy pop and two cans of local beer. When we first arrived in room there was a bottle of red wine and a fruit platter waiting for us. You also get a welcome drink of sparkling wine when you check in. Prior to arriving, I emailed the hotel to request a quiet room away from the night entertainment. We asked for this because we had read that rooms that face the Orange County Hotel next door can be very noisy, and since we were travelling with our 2 year old daughter we didn’t want her to be disturbed. The hotel very kindly did this for us, and although our room didn’t have the best view that the hotel has to offer we were very happy with it. We spoke to another couple (also travelling with a young child) whose room face the main pool area and they said at night the noise could be very bad. It seems that the sound waves from the outdoor shows that Barut Kemer and Orange County Hotel put on each night bounce around between the two floors of rooms that overlook the pool, causing quite a lot of noise pollution. However, we had no such disruptions in the room we had which face outwards, on the opposite side to the Orange County Hotel. The standard of the food was very good throughout the hotel. The breakfast buffet is vast with plenty of choice from fruit, yoghurt and salads to sausage, bacon and eggs cooked all different ways. At lunchtime you can either eat in the buffet restaurant, the outdoor pizzeria (which also does jacket pots and savoury Turkish flat cakes) or the outdoor a la carte restaurant. We thought the latter was the best with lovely sea views... we definitely recommend the fish of the day. From 4pm they serve crepes at the pizzeria restaurant which were delicious. However, what elevates it to the next level in my opinion are the a la carte restaurants. You can only book these 48 hours in advance, so for the first two days we had our evening meal in the buffet restaurant which was really good with plenty of choice. To book a table, you need to swipe your card at the touch screen computer in the main reception area and then follow the instructions to book you table. There are 4 main indoor a la carte restaurants, and you are only allowed to each one once per week of your stay. However, we managed to talk nicely to the customer relations rep and they booked us in for our last night in exchange for some feedback on the hotel. In our opinion the Turkish and seafood restaurants were the best, but that’s not the say the others weren’t good. In fact, the only misstep in terms of food was the risotto in the Italian restaurant, which was not risotto but more like steamed rice. The hotel was quite empty due to the time of year, but it was still quite tricky to get a table at some of the a la carte places. The booking system opens at 8am and apparently people start queuing from 7:30am when the hotel is full! Regardless of where you eat though you are definitely going to come back heavier than when you arrived. All the service at the bars is excellent and there is no signing for drinks which we’ve experienced previously at AI resorts. The local beer is Efes – an OK 5% ABV pilsner style lager, best served cold in the hot weather :) A good range of cocktails, spirits and wine is also available at all bars. The red wine is barely drinkable, but the white is OK when served cold. However, the red/white wine they serve in the a la carte restaurants is far superior, so this is another good reason the book these (along with the decandence of being waited on hand and foot!). Our daughter loved all the kids entertainment, with a play area, shallow splash pool and indoor mini club. If you are under 3 you cannot be left with the staff but you are able to go in when accompanied by a guardian. They do a huge range of activities and the staff work tirelessly to keep everyone happy. There is also a mini-disco at night before the evening entertainment – how the animation team members don’t go crazy dancing to those same songs every night I’ve got no idea! There are also water slides for older kids (or adults like me who needed invigorating after a boozy lunch!). The animation team also put on activities for the adults, including boules, darts, shooting, aqua aerobics, yoga, Pilate's etc. Every night there is a different entertainment show in the outdoor amphitheatre. We made it to some of these, and the best were definitely the one on Saturday (kind of Turkish riverdance) and the acrobats. The weather was on the whole good for the time of year with some days of sunshine and others a bit more cloudy. One day we did have an impressive thunderstorm with heavy rain. This was no issue though as we made use of the indoor pool, sauna and steam room. I can recommend getting out of the hotel and walking along the sea front to Kemer marina (a 2.5km walk). Here you will find the nomad park (entrance fee 2TL) which offers an insight into Turkish nomad living as well as great views back towards the hotel. We also took the sea bus from the marina to Antalya (10TL each way) which was a great way to travel. The old town of Antalya is very picturesque with some interesting sites dating back to the Roman era. If you turn left out of the hotel and keep walking along the road you will reach the shops which sell a wide range of mainly fake designer goods. Make sure you haggle because the cost of things is artificially high – offer less than half of what they are asking and go from there! On Mondays there is a food market and Tuesdays a clothes market. You can also book tours at a number of different operators which are much cheaper than booking with your tour rep at the hotel. On our last night we were invited to a drinks reception on the 4th floor terrace where once again you are welcomed by the staff and managers who chat with you and ask if you have any recommendations on how they can improve the hotel. Again, this personal touch helped to make it a truly wonderful holiday! Overall I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. Before we left I got an email from Thomson (our UK tour company) to say the hotel had been upgraded to their gold category, and can see why.More
