About us

We are Ahmet and Anna, your hosts at Loya Vita Hotel in Dalyan as of 2022. 

You might remember us as the previous hosts of Safak Apart Hotel in Dalyan.

On this page, we would like to introduce ourselves.


Ahmet grew up on the Turkish south coast and was only thirteen years old when he had to leave school and start working. Since then, he has always worked in small family run hotels. He worked his way up from dish washer to driver, tour guide, manager and eventually the owner of his own place. Ahmet is seen around the hotel cleaning or watering something 90% of the time. He won't rest until his place is spotlessly clean, but once he's satisfied, he loves to sit down with his guests for a chat and a joke.


Anna is Dutch. She studied cultural anthropology and did the research for her master thesis in Dalyan. Since she met Ahmet in 2002, they have travelled around Turkey as well as other countries together and she came to share Ahmet's dream of owning their own hotel one day. Anna is the one managing and organising. She's always around the hotel, ready to answer any questions, give tips for things to do, or just for a chat around the pool or at the bar. 


Feyaz and Noyan, our two boys are of course part of the package. Feyaz might treat you to one of his magic tricks, Noyan will treat you to one of his gorgeous smiles.


Our team of three lovely ladies Songül, Hatice and Keziban, who have all been working for us for several years, will make sure your room is spotlessy clean and will welcome you with a smile whenever you bump into them in or around the hotel.


Hospitality is our nature. We genuinely love to make people feel comfortable and let them enjoy the best holiday they can, and keep everything very laid back at the same time. 


We are looking forward to meet you at  Loya Vita Hotel!
