Melas Lara is a family-friendly hotel on Turkey's southern coast offering a range of both energetic and relaxing activities. When you want to venture out, you're steps away from the beach and within driving distance of the resort town of Antalya. The hotel has a lagoon-style outdoor pool with several different sections and a palm tree island in the middle. There's also a heated whirlpool and three water slides. There's a separate children's pool, as well as two heated indoor pools, one of which is for kids. You can get breakfast, lunch and dinner at the buffet restaurant, perhaps choosing to eat your meal in the fresh air. In the evenings, you can have some Turkish, western or Asian cuisine at one of the hotel's four other restaurants. There are four bars where you can get drinks and snacks, as well as a patisserie that serves hot drinks, cakes and biscuits. The hotel has lots to do for children, such as face-painting and cookie-making, plus a games room with arcade games and a snooker table. If you're feeling adventurous, you could join in with activities such as jet-skiing and parasailing, which are organised by the hotel. If you'd rather relax, you can visit the Turkish bath or spa, and perhaps book yourself in for a facial or massage. In the evenings, Melas Lara provides entertainment such as live shows, live music and karaoke that are suitable for all the family.
The hotel is 100m from Kundu Beach, where you can stretch out on the sand and take a dip in the sea. The Kundu Bazaar shopping centre is 500m away from the hotel, and you can pick up local produce and souvenirs there. In the surrounding area you'll find other shops as well as bars, cafés and restaurants selling Turkish and international food. A short drive away is Lara Beach, a popular resort with an 8km-long stretch of shore. If you want to head further afield, Antalya, the coast's main resort, is 17km away from Melas Lara. Here you could visit the old quarter of Kaleiçi‚ which is surrounded by a Roman wall. You could also have a night out here, where activity is centred around a throng of bars and nightclubs. For a day trip, on the other side of Antalya, you'll find Beydaglari Coastal National Park, where you can go on hikes.
At the pool bar you can get alcoholic, soft and hot drinks till late at night. In the afternoon, the beach bar and pool bar serve light meals such as burgers and kebabs. The nightclub is open until 2am and the lobby bar is open 24 hours a day.

This is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable. The thing which makes this hotel great... is the staff. The housekeeping staff keep the hotel immaculately clean, especially in these times. The bar and restaurant staff are very friendly. Names such as Emine, Abo to name just two. They were all very nice people who went beyond call to make our stay wonderful. The lady at reception was very warm and welcoming. A great big thanks goes to Mr Haktan at customer relations. He took time to explain everything in a sincere manner about his beautiful hotel. We appreciated this especially during these difficult times. Thank you all. We shall return when better times return.
