The site is part of Utopia III, which are among the largest construction projects in Alanya and is designed with “luxurious quality” in mind. In the years 2007-2011 four complexes was established here where Lemon Garden is the smallest and was finished first followed then by Banana Garden and Orange Garden. All sites got their name from the fruit trees that have been planted in their garden except for Panorama Garden, the fourth / last complex which was intended to be the most impressive of all.
During the project, it was however decided to merge Banana Garden and Orange Garden into Orange-Banana Garden, a shared complex which with its double amenities, massive garden and good geographical position became quite unique. Orange-Banana Garden is today arguably the best vacation-site in all of Alanya and one of few sites of this size where all the apartments have been sold in just one year from completion.
Located in the old town center Cikcilli close to mountains and nature, cozy restaurants and resource-full shopping centers. Although tourist life with all it´s perks are very evident in the site itself you only need to cross the street to get in touch with the old, traditional life of Alanya. Fresh bread is sold directly by the baker just a stone’s throw away and Saturday’s local farmers market (bazaar) set up on the street just outside the site. Fresh meat and fish are also available at the butcher and fish-market which both are located in close proximity to Orange-Banana Garden.
If it´s the Mediterranean and it´s finegrained beach Keykubat (Eastern Beach) that attracts you, it is within walking distance but for your convenience there is also a free beach service (in high season) with pick up at the site in the morning and return in the afternoon. If you wish to visit the “vibrant” city center of Alanya it is quite accessible by foot, but there are also local buses on the main road a few hundred meters away or if you prefer the beach-service in the morning is also an alternative with just a short walk from the beach.
If you enjoy sunning, swimming and relaxing on your holiday you will find that most of your needs are available on site. Although the complexes nowadays are merged they still differ a little where Banana Garden, for example, usually has a quieter pool area compared to Orange Garden who has a pool-bar attached.
