What makes us special
Yonca Lodge is among the first ecological hotels in Turkey, a trend that began approximately 10 years ago. Yonca Lodge has been a member since 2006 of the TaTuTa Project, a network of ecological farms, and of the Buğday Association that supports ecological living in Turkey.
Located at Yanıklar’s Karaot Beach, one of the most important breeding grounds in Turkey for caretta caretta turtles, Yonca Lodge has been supporting volunteers from local and foreign universities for 30 years in projects for the protection of caretta carettas.
Additionally, there are ongoing studies on the rejuvenation and survival of the Sığla Forest next to Yonca’s garden. Yonca Lodge takes an active role in the vast majority of cultural and environmental activities in Fethiye and aims to support the sustainability of the region in every sense.
Lastly, Yonca Lodge, which is one of the founding members of Turkish Small Hotels Association, has also been a member of Fethiye Hotels Association and Turkish Hoteliers Federation for many years.
