A Room with a View: Turkey’s Marmara Antalya, World’s First Revolving Hotel

March 26, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Marmara AntalyaWhen you're vacationing in a setting this grand-- on southern Turkey's Falez cliffs overlooking the Med on one side and distant mountains on the other-- you want to experience it all. Leave it to the Marmara Antalya Hotel to come up with a way for you to drink it all in. Billed as the world's first revolving hotel, the hotel has a 24-room revolving loft that rotates 360 degrees every seven hours. Lucky guests can gape at the ever-changing panorama of turquoise sea against the rugged Antalya coastline, then-- voila!-- the snow-capped Taurus Mountains. Talk about a memorable stay in one of the world's most sought-after playgrounds. The design hotel also features 208 stationary rooms, a private beach with water sports, an artificial river, and a beautiful outdoor pools to catch some rays where the sun shines some 300 days out of the year.
