The ancient site is perfect for leisurely exploration with its Temples of Apollo and Athena, and the remains of the Roman Baths that house an impressive collection of artefacts.From the Old Town of Side, it is a short walk along the seafront promenade to the 5-star Raga Side Hotel, which, with just under 200 deluxe bedrooms, lends to a lovely group ambience for our bridge guests to meet up. You can relax on the private beach or on the terraces around the outdoor pool. Swim in the indoor pool, take a Turkish Hamam or steam bath, or treat yourself to a massage or treatment in the Spa (charge).The hotel prides itself on its exceptional cuisine. There is an excellent choice of a la carte dishes available so you can enjoy freshly cooked food direct to your table. During the day snacks or light lunches are available from the poolside bar or beach café and you can enjoy delicacies from the Patisserie. All this is included in your 24-hour ultra-all-inclusive package along with cocktails and drinks, served on the terraces and in the hotel’s bars.You can expect the weather to be generally very good in November on the south coast of Turkey, our previous group enjoyed endless sunny days and temperatures mainly over 30 degrees!Included in our package is a half day excursion to Antalya, the eastern gateway to the Turquoise Coast.

Make your own way to Antalya airport, where transfers will be included on our specific arrival and departure dates. On arrival, your included transfer will take approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. At the start of your Bridge holiday you’ll be invited to join our Bridge director and host for a welcome meeting in the hotel. Any single travellers will have the opportunity to find a partner for the Bridge room. Our Bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break, and, in addition to playing Bridge, we try to include interesting Bridge seminars, hosted by your Bridge Director. Your duplicate Bridge will be available every evening between 7.45pm and 11.15pm and we endeavour to vary these evening sessions, balancing between teams and pairs, with at least one Swiss style event during a two-week Bridge break. Bridge will also be offered some afternoons between 2.30pm and 4.45pm. These sessions are normally given over to open pairs/teams. During your Bridge holiday nothing is obligatory and you can play in as many, or as few, Bridge sessions as you wish. We don’t forget you are on holiday and our Bridge programmes also allow time to relax and the opportunity for you to explore the surrounding area.
ACCOMMODATION & FOOD
The Raga Side Hotel is a very well run, adult only, A la carte dining hotel that offers an excellent 24-hour ultra-all-inclusive package. Opening its doors in June 2018, this small hotel has just under 200 bedrooms and boasts a range of excellent facilities throughout. It is ideally located - one of the closest hotels to Side with just a 20-minute walk to the harbour and historic temples.
We are aware of some building works at a neighbouring property to The Raga Hotel. The works are not taking place at the hotel directly and are not expected to impact any guests at The Raga Hotel. The works are planned for the interior areas of the neighbouring building and actions to mitigate any noise are being implemented. These include a dedicated ‘silent room’ in the centre of the property where all cutting machinery will operate. The management of The Raga Hotel are working with the buildings developer to ensure the guests of The Raga Hotel are not inconvenienced during their stay in Side.
