Huzur Valley is 650 m above sea level, 9 km inland and 15 minutes from the iconic yachting resort of Göcek in southwest Turkey. It is a sublimely peaceful and secure environment.
The natural unspoilt environment and the peace of the valley has twelve yurts that accommodate people in single, twin, double and triple accommodation. Yurt actually means ‘home’ in Turkish and is a traditional Turkic structure, still home to many people in Mongolia, Turkmenistan, Kirgizistan and other Turkic republics. All the yurts are comfortable and well appointed with wooden floors, doors, electricity and proper beds. They adjust to the ambient temperature, so are cool at night so you can sleep in comfort. You can see the stars from your bed through the roof wheel known as ‘the eye of heaven’. There are also four safari tents, with a similar level of comfort, only smaller which can be used for extra single accommodation.
Bathroom and shower facilities are shared, and are conveniently placed around the site. They are kept immaculately clean and hot water is supplied by solar power.
The natural Stone swimming pool is the perfect place to relax, as is the ‘köşk’ a traditional Turkish treehouse which is the perfect spot for a siesta. There is also a bar where you can help yourself to a drink (honesty system) or take a book from the library to read in a hammock under an olive tree. Huzur Valley`s setting brings a deep connection with the natural world that immeasurably enhances the benefits of yoga practice. The spacious yoga shala is located in the middle of the yurts, and is fully equipped with mats, belts, blocks, bolsters and blankets. There is another tranquil open air room with bamboo-glazed surrounds for those who want to order a massage.
