The 5 star fine dining, adult only Raga Side Hotel is exactly that its name suggests! Only open to persons over the age of 16, and offering exceptional cuisine - all part of your 24 hour ultra- all-inclusive package. It is no wonder the Raga Side Hotel is rated extremely highly on TripAdvisor (4.5/5), - 2nd out of the 54 Speciality lodgings in Side.

Dinner and lunch can be taken in the elegant a la Minute restaurant, either inside or on the terraces overlooking the guitar shaped swimming pool. You can choose from the quality buffets and salads available or select from the menu and be served freshly cooked food direct to your table. During the day snacks or light lunches are available from the poolside bar or beach café and in the afternoon you can enjoy delicacies from the Patisserie. Cocktails and drinks including many imported and branded names can be taken on the terraces, in the Lobby Bar or at the Pool Bar, and the Sports Bar is open throughout the evening and night so you can keep up to date with any sports competitions. All this is INCLUDED on your 24 hour ultra-all-inclusive package.

The hotel has just under 200 deluxe bedrooms, so it is not too big and lends to a lovely group ambience for when our bridge guests meet up and enjoy the excellent facilities. 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).

Superb Location - The fine dining, adult only Raga Side is one of the closest hotels to the old town of Side and the Temples. A 20 minute walk along the sea front promenade takes you right into Side centre, with its cobbled winding streets and pretty harbour, and ruins of the historic city. Wander through the ancient site and visit the Temples of Apollo and Athena, and the remains of the Roman Baths that house an impressive collection of artefacts.


During your duplicate bridge holidays nothing is obligatory, you can play in as many or as few bridge sessions as you wish. Our bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break and in addition to playing bridge, we will always endeavour to provide a minimum of two bridge seminars for breaks of 7 days or more.

All of our bridge holidays include bridge seminars with handouts in addition to a varied and interesting duplicate bridge programme. We use duplimated boards every evening to ensure fairness and consistency. Bridge hand records are provided, as well as bridge partners if needed.

Your duplicate bridge will usually be available twice daily, at 2.30pm and 7.45pm. The afternoon sessions usually finish between 4.45pm and 5pm, the evenings between 10.45pm - 11.15pm. The afternoons are normally given over to open pairs/teams. We endeavour to vary the evening sessions, with a balance between teams and pairs, with at least one Swiss style event during a two-week bridge break.

During all evening sessions, we utilise a duplimate machine, which means we are able to produce hand record sheets at the end of the session and when we have two or more sections, both can play the same hands. On our UK duplicate bridge breaks, provided numbers allow, we usually will lay on an "Early Bird" afternoon session on the day of arrival.

We don't forget you are on holiday, our bridge programmes allow time for relaxation plus giving you plenty of opportunity to explore the surrounding area and relax.
