This Turkish palace is perfect for your destination wedding

The Mardan Palace Antalya will have you feel like royalty

  • If you're looking for a perfect destination wedding spot, then you need to see what Turkey's Mardan Palace Antalya has to offer. Located along the shore of the blazingly blue Mediterranean Sea, the hotel, with its 546 guest rooms, has more than enough space for to-be brides, grooms and their extended entourages. Each room defines luxury and comes with Insta-ready views of the Taurus Mountains, the landscaped swimming pool and the sea. The exterior is inspired by the old-world architecture of the Ottomans, but on the inside, the hotel is chic and modern—all rooms have interactive multimedia systems, Wi-Fi and even Hermès toiletries, among other amenities.

  • Live like royalty

    The least you can do to deal with all that wedding stress is book yourself into the Royal Suite. We’re talking two connected bedrooms (for you and your bridesmaids), a plunge pool that’s the perfect spot for daytime cocktails and a private butler to take care of everything else. The seriously stunning views will be there for you too—the Royal Suite has terraces and sun decks overlooking the sea on one side and the mountains on the other.

  • Wine and dine

    No new experience is really complete without good food and wine to go with it. Mardan Palace Antalya has 10 in-house restaurants to choose from, covering every major cuisine from around the world. There’s Besiktas for authentic Turkish food, Oishii for Japanese cuisine, Arbat for Russian fare, La Brasserie for the best European dishes and lots more. Their wine cellar is also one of the largest in Turkey, with over 8,500 options at your service.

  • Relax and rejuvenate

    Pamper yourself at the Executive VIP spa. The 800 sqft space comes equipped with a snow cave that helps cool you down after a sauna (and promotes blood circulation). It even has its own champagne bar! If you don’t want to book the whole VIP spa, you can opt for a classic hamam experience or marine vitamin-based Thalasso therapies which use concentrated seawater and marine mud to work their magic. There’s also Man Space, which offers treatments especially curated for the men at your wedding. It really doesn’t get better than this.
