Hotel Recommendations and airport transfers

OluDeniz is located within a bay so everything is close by but it is important to pick a hotel in the main resort, as this is an easy walk to the briefing area, landing areas and beach etc. To make things easier for you, below I have included details of the hotel the Free Flight Academy team stay at and where the briefings will be located. However there are others such as The Mozaik hotel and The Bronze Hotel for a little more luxury or Tonoz Beach Hotel or The Orange Lodge for those on a budget, which are all within walking distance.

The Magic Tulip: is a friendly family run hotel in a comparatively quiet location just off the main Oludeniz strip. Information can be found at As this is where the free Flight Academy team stay we have special rates with the hotel. To book or obtain a quote please email the hotel directly at quoting Lee SIV to access the preferential rate. Please note there are two Magic Tulip hotels so when booking please be aware it is the Magic Tulip and not the Magic Tulip Beach hotel where we will be staying (although the other hotel is just a 3 minute walk away, owned by the same family and also lovely).

Airport transfers – Taxis offer fixed rates to and from Dalaman airport for around £50. If a transfer is not included with your hotel booking it is still worth asking them to organise it for you as it is often cheaper is arranged in advance from Oludeniz rather than at the airport. Alternatively a good cost effective airport transfer can be arranged through Buses for up to 12 passengers cost around £5 each way and although it can mean a short wait for the bus to fill up before you get on your way it is much cheaper. If you select the speedy shuttle then your wait at the airprort will be no more than 45 minutes.

Additional hints and tips regarding accommodation:

Thomson holidays offer very good deals including flights and half board accommodation so it is well worth searching on line or popping into your local travel agent for details of offers. OluDeniz is a very popular destination for Pilots and tourists so it is worth booking your accommodation early to avoid disappointment.

If you choose to book a hotel not mentioned above it is important to make sure your hotel is an easy walk to the sea front and to the OluDeniz main street; as I have known pilots who have ended up in different resorts that require transport in and out. If you have any doubt please don’t hesitate to contact us as we will be happy to let you know if the options you are looking at are suitable.
