About Fazile Zahir
İ am Fazile and live and work right here in Dalyan. İ moved here from the south of England 12 years ago when i fell in love with the Dalyan atmosphere, people and surroundings. İ have been part of many projects in the Dalyan area, but Ruby Rooms is my most cherished and favourite because its so fabulous. İt all started with a dream of bringing something different to the rental market - a luxury bolt hole for adults. And so the Ruby Rooms were born!
A beautiful kids-free environment where you can really unwind and relax in style. Each one bedroom apartment has a unique interior to suit your style, so whether you opt for Paradise Place or La Romantica or any of the other beautiful accommodation you will be thrilled. The apartments were finished in 2013 and so far all of our guests have loved them - please read our reviews on Trip Advisor and here on Owners Direct. İf there are a few of you please do email me for special offers on multiple holiday rentals.
Fazile Zahir purchased this apartment in 2013
Why Fazile Zahir chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast
Dalyan is so popular year after year and though it's a great place for kids sometimes you just want to get away without them. We wanted to offer that chance to people who want to have a quiet break but not have to book an expensive private villa to ensure it. So the Ruby Rooms were born... come and have fun, chill out and never hear a child screaming!!
What makes this apartment unique
As well as being a child free complex, İ have tried to make the Ruby Rooms a haven for peace and tranquillity. Unique, peaceful, individual - three amazing words that sum up the Ruby Rooms. From the secluded location tha'ts only a 5 minute walk to town, to the gazebos in the garden, brick built bbq and the roof top chill out terrace, İ have tried to think of all that i want when on a relaxing break. There is also the practical 'top floor' with washing machines and drying space so as you don't have to take all those dirty holiday clothes home with you.
A 25% non-refundable deposit is required within 7 days of making the reservation. The remaining 75% is to be paid 4 weeks prior to arrival. Both payments are to be made to English bank account.

Have already recommended these apartments to several of our friends. Mini bus was waiting on arrival with our names clearly marked on his board. I could not fault the apartment and if I needed anything I only had to ask and was taken care of immediately. Fridge had been provided with all the neccessary requirements, including milk and even a bottle of wine. Lovely chocolate biscuits left on dining room table along with nuts, a very thoughtful gesture, something I have not encountered before!! Lovely and quiet, no children allowed, which I think is an excellent idea and yet you are only 5/10 mins from all the wonderful restaurants. Washing machines and even powder provided on top floor with airers on the balcony just outside. Every apartment was different which I thought was an excellent idea. Very clean and look forward to returning in the very near future, thank you.
Lovely Relaxing Break
Spent 5 nights in Ruby Rooms, prior to moving to Sarigerme. The apartment was very well equipped, with good quality furnishings. Everything in the apartment was very clean and well maintained. The inclusion of items such as salt, pepper, oil, washing up liquid, toilet rolls was much appreciated as were the biscuits! The pool, although small and somewhat cold in May was used frequently and was very clean.
Even though only there for a short time, the laundry was really useful, with two washing machines (including powder) and drying areas. The agents were very helpful and friendly.
Took about 10 mins to walk into Dalyan - once we had got our bearings! Took the boat trip to Turtle Beach and twice took the bus to the other end of Turtle Beach - both journeys were enjoyable and well worth doing and this sandy beach is always worth a visit.
Met up with friends who had a villa in Dalyan and who recommended a few restaurants to us - these included, Chef, Clou and Adilan - our favourite for good quality food and friendliness was Adilan. The Sea Bream was perfectly cooked and he prepared us a plate of mixed meze which gave us a chance to try different foods. We also had a take-away/delivery from the China Indian restaurant (not what we would usually do in Turkey, but we didn't feel like going out on the Sunday evening). The food was lovely and we can recommend the crispy spicy beef!
We did most of our food shopping at Muigla supermarket (probably not spelt correctly) but there was a lovely small bakers shop opposite which did assorted savoury items/pastries as well as bread which was very reasonably priced.
We plan to revisit at some point and would strongly recommend these apartments to other travellers.
One last thing, the cockerels did tend to compete for superiority in the mornings and it would be hard to miss the regular 'calling to prayer' throughout the day, but the double glazing on the apartment was amazing at blocking this out!
Overall a lovely start to our holiday in Turkey.
Fab luxury for a good price
We had a fantastic stay at the Ruby Rooms in Stockholm Story. Really like the way each apt is separately themed and ours was really stylish. Very comfortable, everything looked brand new and it was really clean.
I would definately come back again. Maybe in the summer this time!!
Bliss...outdoor heat and inside cool!
This is a lovely compact and convenient apartment for a restful holiday. Everything in the town is within walking distance but why go out when the pool here is just so inviting? The weather was hot so the cool colours of the interior were just right and the roof terrace usually had a gentle breeze. There are wonderful restaurants in the village just a short walk away and trips of all sorts easily available. However the nicest thing about our holiday was staying in such new and beautifully equipped accomodation.....in other words doing as little as possible !

Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
There is an amazing range of habitats in the local area; from the reed beds north of the town to the Koycegiz Lake. With many species of birds, from White Tailed Eagles to Red-rumped swallows, expert birders and amateurs would struggle not to have a great birding holiday. We can organise guided walking tours through areas. We manage perfect accommodation for large groups throughout the year, that are great for comfortable relaxation when not out in the wilderness.
Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, the winding river and a beach which is not just a natural wonder but also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2010 and is one of the few natural breeding grounds of the beautiful Carreta Carreta sea turtle which can be seen. Over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat there are cafeterias at either end for refreshments but plenty of empty space amongst the dunes to escape to.
The beach is a short Dolmus or boat ride away.
The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 25 minutes drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential as we are so close to everything you could need. The town itself is quite small and everything is within easy walking distance.
Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. This apartments are easy walk to restaurants, bars and cafes and the riverboats that you take to the beach or the ruins of Kaunos with its amphitheatre and ancient Lycian rock tombs, the mud baths, sea fishing and so on. Fethiye and Olu Deniz are 50 minutes drive away. Marmaris is about 75 minutes drive, both of which have ferries to Rhodes.
There are many activities available such as trekking through the mountains, cycling and jeep safaris; sunrise or moon light boat cruises for fishing or turtle watching, tours to various islands or just along the coast. Sailing, sea kayaking & white water rafting and diving & snorkelling in clear waters through caves and an abundance of marine life. Horse riding is also available.
Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only a mile in any direction from the centre and is framed by a glorious backdrop of pine clad mountains in every direction. The flatness of town makes it a perfect place for walking with children or the elderly and it is a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance. Dalyan is also distinguished by the lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is a market on Saturday’s selling local produce, clothing and tourist items.
The town has a bank, ATMs a post office a number of well stocked supermarkets centered around the town square. Also the Dolmus (bus) area for trips to surrounding attractions and only 50m or so to the riverside to sit by boats or you can take a relaxing walk along the the river or cross the river to Kanos tombs and amphitheatre. The boats can take you to the beach or on moonlight cruises to the lake, crab fishing and turtle feeding. For the more adventurous there are walking tours, scuba diving and microlight flights. There are also hotsprings and mud baths at the nearby Koycegiz lake.
